BERLIN, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- German record champions Bayern Munich came from behind to celebrate a 6-1 goal festival against Stuttgart whilst Hannover cruised to a 4-0 win over Wolfsburg at the Lower Saxony derby to close the second round of German Bundesliga on Sunday.
The Bavarians showed an inspiring and offensively minded soccer in front of 71,000 spectators at Allianz Arena to roll over the Swabians that swallowed six goals within 19 minutes.
Bayern needed some time to find their rhythm against Stuttgart, but as soon as the host gained a foothold into the match, the Swabians opened the scoring against the run of the game. Stuttgart striker Martin Harnik volleyed home at the second post following a free kick cross by defender Arthur Boka at the 24th minute.
The deficit was a wake-up call for the Bavarians as they responded with the equalizer seven minutes later by midfielder Thomas Mueller, who scored with a follow up shot from very close range. Seventy-three seconds after the equalizer, Bayern midfielder Toni Kroos went one better, when he hammered home from 21 meters to give his side the lead.
The FCB was not done with the scoring as midfielder Luis Gustavo extended the lead to 3-1 with a long-range effort at the 43rd minute.
Two minutes into second half Bayern started where they left off as striker Mario Mandzukic marked his second of the season. Thomas Mueller sealed his brace to two minutes later to see Bastian Schweinsteiger heading home the final 6-1 score at the 51st minute.
It got even for Stuttgart as striker Vedad Ibisevic was sent off with a straight red card following a violent conduct against Bayern defender Jerome Boateng.
"In the beginning we gave ourselves a hard time. Then we controlled the match bit by bit to show great soccer," Jupp Heynckes said.
At the other match on Sunday, Hannover staged a faultless performance against harmless "Wolves" to wrap a comfortable 4-0 victory.
Wolfsburg staged a porous defence against Hannover's provider Szabolcs Huszti who assisted at all four goals. Artur Sobiechs brace and goals by Karim Haggui and Leon Andreasen where enough to inflict the "Wolves" the first loss of the season.
"Today we did everything right in our attacking play," Hannover coach Mirko Slomka said.
