Bundesliga: Werder Bremen 0-2 FC Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich left it late to continue their perfect start to the season as they beat Werder Bremen 2-0.
Luiz Gustavo and Mario Mandzukic scored the goals in the last ten minutes as Jupp Heynckes' side extended their lead at the top of the table with an eighth win in eight competitive games this season.
Although Bremen had matched the Bavarians for much of the game, their late collapse cost them dearly as they slumped to 11 points behind their opponents.
Marco Reus haunted his former side with two goals and an assist as Borussia Dortmund bounced back into form with a comprehensive 5-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Gladbach old boy opened the scoring in the 35th minute and Neven Subotic gave the defending champions a two-goal cushion at the interval. Reus added Dortmund's third in the 70th minute before setting up Ilkay Gundogan for the fourth nine minutes later.
Jakub Blaszczykowski added a fifth as Dortmund moved up to third in the table in emphatic fashion.
Two goals from substitute Sidney Sam earned Bayer Leverkusen a 2-0 win against Greuther Furth, who slipped into the bottom two after their first away defeat of the season.
After a tight first half, Sam sprang from the bench to fire Leverkusen ahead in the 50th minute. He then scored the second in the 62nd minute to give Leverkusen only their third win of the season and lift them up to sixth.
Hamburg rode their luck to end the week with seven points from three games thanks to a tight 1-0 win over Hannover.
The home side managed only two shots on goal over the 90 minutes but one of them, from Artjoms Rudnevs, landed in the back of the net in the 20th minute and that made the difference.
Hannover wasted a hatful of chances and left the HSV-Arena puzzled and empty-handed.
Stuttgart picked up a 2-0 away victory over Nurnberg to lift the pressure off their coach Bruno Labbadia.
Vedad Ibisevic gave the visitors the lead with the quickest goal in the Bundesliga this season inside the opening minute before Martin Harnik wrapped up the win in the 75th minute.
Stuttgart's players celebrated with their coach after claiming their first win of the season while consigning Nurnberg to a third successive defeat.
Hoffenheim and Augsburg struggled to focus on playing football in a game that ended in a 0-0 draw at the Rhein-Neckar Arena.
Playing just 24 hours after a car crash left Hoffenheim midfielder Boris Vukcevic in a coma in hospital, neither side managed to create any major chances to win the points as thoughts were clearly elsewhere.
A moment of madness then cost Sejad Salihovic a red card in the 88th minute of an otherwise tame stalemate.
