Gnabry hat-trick, Mane fears in Bayern win

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich have scored three goals in six minutes, with Serge Gnabry grabbing a hat-trick in a 6-1 thrashing of Werder Bremen.

Their win was overshadowed, though, by an apparent injury for forward Sadio Mane who was taken off 20 minutes in after indicating problems with his right leg.

Mane is due to travel with Senegal to the World Cup in Qatar within days.

The Bavarians suffered a scare after Anthony Jung's effort in the 10th minute cancelled out Jamal Musiala's early opener, and Jiri Pavlenka saved Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting's spot-kick in the 17th.

But in just six minutes Gnabry scored twice and Leon Goretzka netted one to make it 4-1 for Bayern before the break.

Gnabry completed his hat-trick in the 82nd minute and Mathys Tel wrapped up matters just two minutes later.

"We had a small crisis, but we believed in our strength. That's why you can now say that we have found a good pace in recent weeks," Goretzka told broadcasters Sat1 referring to Bayern's winless streak of four games earlier this season.

Team-mate Joshua Kimmich said Bremen's first-half was "very spectacular" but added his side "played very purposefully forward and could have scored even more goals".

Bayern top the league with 31 points. Second-placed Freiburg are four points behind and visit RB Leipzig on Wednesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, Wolfsburg secured a 2-0 win against Borussia Dortmund, extending their positive run to three consecutive victories in the Bundesliga.

It was Wolfsburg's first win over Dortmund in seven years following 13 defeats and a draw.

"We could have used the several chances we had, but still I have to say that it was an almost perfect game today," Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac said.

Wolfsburg are now eighth and on the brink of a European place, while Dortmund missed the chance to close the gap on Bayern.

"We would have liked to and maybe it would have been a bit more deserved to go home with a point. But after the bad start, we can't complain," Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said.

In the two other later games, Borussia Monchengladbach had a possible equaliser ruled out and were defeated 2-1 at lowly Bochum, while Konstantinos Mavropanos' last-minute goal gave VfB Stuttgart a 2-1 win over Hertha Berlin.
