Bayern Munich vs. Eintracht Frankfurt: 6 Things We Learned
Frank Augstein/Associated Press

Bayern Munich continued their dominance at the top of the Bundesliga table with a formidable 5-0 win over lowly Eintracht Frankfurt that now sees Pep Guardiola's side sit comfortably with 13 points between them and second place. 

With the visitors playing a slightly weakened side due to Armin Veh's insistence on prioritising his coming games, Bayern didn't take long to break through with a wonderful opening goal from none other than Mario Gotze. 

The young attacking midfielder chested a loose ball down on the edge of the box and unleashed a volley that managed to beat Kevin Trapp at his far post. It was a fitting goal for what would be a long, long evening for the visiting side. 

Franck Ribery would then double Bayern's lead a moment before half-time when a stray Mario Mandzukic header found space, which the wideman happily took advantage of. Ribery struck the ball true, and the Bavarian side were well on their way to victory. 

The second half was no kinder to Frankfurt when the floodgates truly burst in the final third of the game following a quick double from Arjen Robben and Dante in the 67th and 69th minutes, respectively. Mandzukic, the only true goalscorer on the pitch who had yet to score, had a late consolation goal, and it was an altogether easy day at the office for the German champions. 

Here's what we took from the game.
