Leon Goretzka scored his first goal for Bayern Munich and set up another to lead them to a 3-0 win at Stuttgart on Saturday.

Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller also scored and set up goals as Bayern delivered a statement of intent with a cohesive and committed performance to end Stuttgart coach Tayfun Korkut's seven-game unbeaten run at home.

Stuttgart did well until Muller set up Goretzka to break the deadlock minutes before the break. Goretzka, who joined Bayern from Schalke on a free transfer during the summer, stopped the ball with his left boot and dispatched it with his right past Ron-Robert Zieler inside the far post.

In the second half, Goretzka set up Lewandowski, who took his tally to two goals in two games before setting up Muller with his heel.
