Mario Gotze scored Saturday as Bayern Munich won 3-0 at title rivals Borussia DortmundGotze, of course, formerly played for Dortmund but joined Bayern over the summer in a big-money transfer.

It was his first match against his former club, and in the buildup to kickoff, the German international spoke about how difficult the occasion would be.

"This will be one of the most difficult moments in my career," he told Kicker this week (via ESPN FC). "But ultimately I have to cope with it, because it was my decision."

Gotze scored the game's first goal in the 66th minute, finishing from the right side of the box. Arjen Robben (85') and Thomas Muller (87') sealed the win with late goals.

After his goal, Gotze declined to celebrate, as you can see in the video below.

The victory sent Bayern seven points clear of Borussia Dortmund, who fell to third place. Bayer Leverkusen are second, four points behind Bayern.

Last season, Bayern won the Bundesliga in record style, also capturing the German Cup and UEFA Champions League for a historic treble. Now, with Gotze in their ranks, Die Roten aren't showing any signs of letting up.
