Bayern Munich Vs Stuttgart, Bundesliga: Hat-trick Hero Serge Gnabry Inspires Bayern Win

Bayern Munich's 5-0 win over Stuggart helped them go nine points clear at the top of the Bundesliga table ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund. The game was played in an empty stadium due to Covid restrictions.

Stuttgart survived an early string of chances for Bayern to score, and even created a couple of its own, before Gnabry curled the ball into the top-right corner in the 40th minute to open the scoring on Tuesday.

Thomas Muller set up Gnabry for a second goal just after halftime before a run of three goals in five minutes finished off Stuttgart. Robert Lewandowski chipped the ball over the goalkeeper in the 69th before tapping in a Gnabry cross three minutes later.

Soon after, Gnabry completed his hat-trick when a cross from Muller was palmed into his path by the keeper. Stuttgart stays 15th after a defeat which brought Pellegrino Matarazzo's team back down to earth following a 2-0 upset win over Wolfsburg on Saturday.

The game was played in an empty stadium because of state-level restrictions following a rise in coronavirus cases.
