Bundesliga: Klose hattrick as Bayern crush Cottbus

BERLIN, Sept 26 (Reuters) - Miroslav Klose scored a hat-trick in the final half hour to lead Bayern Munich to a 5-0 home win over bottom-of-the-table Energie Cottbus on Wednesday and raise his tally to eight goals in his six Bundesliga games.

Martin Demichelis and Luca Toni also scored in the last half hour for Bayern, who moved three points clear at the top of the table with 17 points from seven games. Bayer Leverkusen moved into second place after beating Nuremberg 2-1 away.

Averaging three goals per match, the new-look Bayern lead the way in the Bundesliga scoring stakes with 21 goals and at this pace could surpass their 2006/07 total of 55 goals by the mid-season Christmas break.

Klose broke a tense stalemate in the 59th minute, pouncing on a blunder by Cottbus goalkeeper Tomislav Piplica. Martin Demichelis doubled the lead four minutes later before Toni got his fifth goal of the season in the 69th minute.

Klose, the league's top scorer, claimed his second in the 75th minute, chesting down a cross from 17-year-old prodigy Toni Kroos and beating Piplica with a fine shot into the left corner.

Klose, who came from Werder Bremen in the close season, completed the scoring one minute from time, heading in another fine cross from Kroos, in a match played under a steady drizzle and watched by a crowd of 69,000.

"I don't know what happened," Klose told Premiere television. "At halftime the coach said we had to be patient. We had chances in the first half but didn't use them. In the second half we had a good run. Everyone plays better then."

The Germany striker leads the scoring table with eight goals; Toni is joiny second with five. But Klose, who clearly plays well with the Italy striker and new arrival, said he did not want to discuss their understanding on the pitch.

"Let's not talk too much about it," Klose said. "Otherwise it'll be ruined."

But Klose was happy to talk about Kroos, who played the final 28 minutes in his debut for Bayern. The young midfielder was recently voted Germany's best under-20 player.

"He's a world-class player, even though he's still so young," said Klose. "He's a great talent."
