Bayern might too much for Stuttgart again

FC Bayern München followed up Sunday's 5-3 league win at VfB Stuttgart with a 6-3 triumph against Bruno Labbadia's men in the cup while Real Madrid CF struck eight in Spain.

FC Bayern München put VfB Stuttgart to the sword for the second time in four days, a 6-3 win taking them through to the German Cup quarter-finals.

Bruno Labbadia suffered his first league game at the Stuttgart helm on Sunday as his side succumb 5-3 at home to the German champions – he could not have imagined their next encounter would be even more entertaining. There were early signs, though, as Andreas Ottl's 30-metre strike and Mario Gómez's close-range finish put Bayern 2-0 up inside eight minutes.

The hosts were level at the break thanks to a Pavel Pogrebnyak double, only for Miroslav Klose (52) to make it 3-2. Stuttgart then had Khalid Boulahrouz sent off and Christian Gentner missed a penalty, yet levelled again via Matthieu Delpierre's header. Thomas Müller, Klose and Franck Ribéry's header put the tie to bed in the final nine minutes; VfB ending with nine men after Delpierre's dismissal.

There were upsets elsewhere in Germany, with Nils Petersen scoring twice in FC Energie Cottbus's 3-1 triumph at stuttering VfL Wolfsburg. Bundesliga strugglers 1. FC Köln also bowed out at home to second-tier opponents as MSV Duisburg won 2-1, while Marco Höger scored and missed from the spot before Alemannia Aachen beat ten-man Eintracht Frankfurt on penalties.

Spain
There were no such shocks in the Copa del Rey round of 16 first legs, with Madrid's 8-0 demolition of Levante UD catching the eye. Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo struck hat-tricks, with Mesut Özil and Pedro León also on target.

The goals flowed throughout Spain, with Sevilla coming from 3-2 down to overcome Málaga CF 5-3, Ndri Romaric scoring twice. José Ulloa hit a hat-trick as UD Almería beat RCD Mallorca, who missed a penalty, 4-3. Getafe CF were 2-1 victors at Real Betis Balompié and Simão's spot kick earned Club Atlético de Madrid a narrow advantage against RCD Espanyol. The second legs take place in the first week of January.
