By on December 19, 2010 - 36 views

Mario Gomez scored a memorable hat-trick against former club Stuttgart to give champions Bayern Munich a much needed 5-3 win.

Thomas Muller and Frank Ribery also found the net, the latter hitting his fourth goal in three games since returning from injury.

A catalogue of errors saw Bayern in dreamland as they found themselves 5-1 up before the hour mark. They go into the winter break in fifth position, leaving Bruno Labbadia, Stuttgart’s third coach of the season, second from bottom.

League leaders Borussia Dortmund were stunned 1-0 by Frankfurt after conceding a late goal to Bundesliga top scorer Theofanis Gekas – his 14th of the season.

It was Dortmund’s first defeat on the road this season after winning a record eight out of eight away games.

Schalke 04 won their third game on the bounce with a 3-0 win against Cologne at the Vetlins Arena. A Raul hat-trick was the difference between the two sides, moving them up to 10th.

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg grabbed a stoppage time equaliser against Hoffenheim to make it 2-2. Eden Dzeko struck from close range for their sixth straight league draw and sit three places above the relegation zone.
