Arjen Robben scored twice to help Bayern Munich beat Hoffenheim 4-0 in the Bundesliga on Saturday, when he and Franck Ribery started for the first time together this season. Mario Gomez, the top scorer in the German first division, made it 17 goals in 20 games in the second minute, Thomas Mueller doubled the lead, and Robben scored two fine individual efforts against the visitors.

Also Saturday: Schalke won 1-0 at home to Freiburg; Stuttgart lost 4-1 at home to Nuremberg; and Pierre Littbarski's first game in charge of Wolfsburg ended in a 1-0 home defeat to Hamburger SV.
