[GERMANY SCOREBOARD] After two weeks of action, only Bayern Munich and Hamburg SV boast perfect records in the Bundesliga. HSV won its second game of the young season 1-0 over Bayer Leverkusen on Rafael van der Vaart penalty kick. Bayern, which opened the season with a 3-0 win over Hansa Rostock, followed up with a 4-0 thumping of Werder Bremen.

For other teams -- FC Schalke, Arminia Bielefeld, VfL Bochum, Eintracht Frankfurt -- are undefeated with a win and a tie.

Two Bayern newcomers, Frenchman Franck Ribery and Italian Luca Toni sparkled against Breman and score once each. Another offseason signing, Hamit Altintop, and Andreas Ottl rounded out the scoring in what was a homecoming for Miroslav Klose, who was booed by Werder Bremen fans.

Schalke 04 routed Ruhr rivals Borussia Dortmund 4-1 in Gelsenkirchen on goals by Marcelo Bordon, Christian, Gerald Asamoah and Kevin Kuranyi.

Defending champions Stuttgart fell, 3-1, at Hertha Berlin.
