Brazilians score as Bayern canter to win

Action Images

Bayern Munich continued their 100% record in the 2012-13 Bundesliga with a mighty 5-0 victory over the helpless Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The win was aided by three Brazilians in the form of midfielder Luiz Gustavo and defenders Rafinha and Dante, with Gustavo and Rafinha amongst the scorers.

Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic gave the Champions League finallists the lead on the half-hour mark, before Luiz Gustavo doubled the lead shortly before half-time.

Germany forward Thomas Muller added a brace after the break to stretch the lead, before former Schalke full-back Rafinha added a fifth in the dying minutes to complete the rout.

The Bavarians now lie five points clear of high-flying Eintracht Frankfurt in second-place, with their eight-match winning streak to set a new record start to a Bundesliga season.

With all three Brazilians in defensive areas, the trio can be very proud of their efforts in restricting opponents to just two goals in the club's league fixtures so far this season.
