Bayern Munich reached another milestone in the Bundesliga, but the most exciting game of the matchday was in Leverkusen. Marc Stendera and Anthony Ujah also enjoyed good Saturdays on matchday 10.
Bayern Munich 4-0 Cologne
Cologne put 10 men behind the ball, but Bayern attacked relentlessly and were full value for the 4-0 scoreline that gave Munich their 1,000 Bundeliga victory. Arjen Robben celebrated his comeback from injury by opening the scoring in the 35th minute. This was followed by goals from Arturo Vidal (40'), Robert Lewandowski (62'), and Thomas Müller from the spot (77').
Leverkusen 4-3 Stuttgart
Leverkusen came from 3-1 down to beat Stuttgart 4-3 in the game of the matchday. Martin Harnik (50') and Daniel Didavi (54') scored to put the visitors ahead, before Karim Bellarabi (57') pulled one back in a frantic seven minutes. Lukas Rupp (60') restored Stuttgart's two-goal margin three minutes later, but then Leverkusen scored three straight goals as Sebastian Boenisch (70'), Chicharito (71'), and finally Admir Mehmedi (89') completed the sensational comeback.
Hannover 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt
After a first half that saw the two teams hardly threaten each other's goals, Felix Klaus put the home side ahead in the 51st minute. Frankfurt, appearing in an all-gold away strip, though, struck back for the win with a brace from 19-year-old midfielder Marc Stendera (57', 65').
Mainz 3-1 Werder Bremen
Werder Bremen easily beat Mainz thanks to a brace from Anthony Ujah (39',44'), followed up by a Fin Bartels goal just before the teams headed off for the break. Yoshinori Muto spoiled Bremen's clean sheet in the 90th minute.
Darmstadt 0-1 Wolfsburg
Coach Dirk Schuster's Lilies defended bravely throughout, but Dieter Hecking's far more expensive and talented side were not to be denied. Daniel Caligiuri (78') scored the only goal the Wolves would need to leave south-Hesse with three points.
A Pierre-Michel Lasogga goal two minutes from time gave Hamburg three points and left Hoffenheim scrambling to avoid the bottom spot in the Bundesliga table. The visitors were the better team and should have scored more. Hoffenheim's head coach Markus Gisdol faces a decisive week ahead.
Ingolstadt 0-0 Hertha (late kick-off)
Sunday: Dortmund vs. Augsburg, Gladbach vs. Schalke
