Harry Kane has scored his first Bundesliga hat-trick to move to seven goals from five games in the German league as Bayern Munich surged to a 7-0 win over Bochum.
Kane netted his third off a pass from Noussair Mazraoui in the 88th minute -- but had to wait for a video review to check for a possible offside -- to finish off Bayern's biggest win since another 7-0 victory against the same opponents in August last year.
Bayern's rivals Borussia Dortmund and Leipzig also both won their games 1-0 after struggling to break down stubborn opposition defences in Saturday's programme.
"I'm delighted I can help the team with my goals. I'm happy and getting to know the team better and better. Today was a superb example of that. Hopefully I'll get a few more goals," Kane said s he celebrated his treble.
He will now celebrate the victory during Bayern's traditional visit to the Oktoberfest on Sunday.
"I've never been there before. I'm looking forward to it. It will be a good feeling to celebrate there after the win," he said.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting got the home side started when he scored in the fourth minute and it was all Bayern from then on.
Kane got his first goal in the 13th when the ball took a deflection off defender Ivan Ordets and landed at his feet.
After goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Leroy Sane extended Bayern's lead, Kane scored again from the penalty spot in the 54th after Ordets handled the ball.
Kane then set up 18-year-old substitute Mathys Tel for Bayern's sixth goal in the 81st and finished off his hat-trick seven minutes later off Mazraoui's pass.
The win sent Bayern back to the top of the Bundesliga table, a point ahead of three teams, including Stuttgart, who beat Darmstadt 3-1 on Friday.
A much-changed Dortmund, with six new players in the starting line-up compared to Wednesday's 2-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, eked out a 1-0 win over Wolfsburg which may not relieve much of the pressure on Dortmund coach Edin Terzic.
Substitute Donyell Malen unlocked the determined Wolfsburg defence when he found Julian Brandt in space, who crossed low for Marco Reus to knock the ball home.
Leipzig were held at bay by Borussia Monchengladbach until Timo Werner showed off the skills which once made him one of the Bundesliga's top talents.
The former Chelsea man scored the 75th minute winner off a pass from Xavi Simons, sprinting onto the ball, rounding the goalkeeper and scoring with a high shot from a tight angle.
Union Berlin's losing run hit four games in all competitions after a 2-0 defeat to Hoffenheim.
Augsburg held on for a 2-1 win over Mainz despite playing the last half-hour with 10 men following a red card. Werder Bremen was hosting Cologne later Saturday.
