Jadon Sancho scored his first goal of the season as Borussia Dortmund thrashed Nuremberg 7-0.
Marco Reus scored twice to take his Dortmund tally to 100 as Lucien Favre's side took advantage of Bayern's draw with Augsburg on Tuesday to narrow the gap on Bayern Munich to two points.
Christian Pulisic dinked the ball over the defence for the 20-year-old Jacob Bruun Larsen to score spectacularly in the ninth minute, and the Danish midfielder lobbed Fabian Bredlow to send the ball inside the far post.
Pulisic was also involved in Dortmund's second, combining with Maximilian Philipp before Reus thumped the ball from the edge of the area to score a deflected shot.
Achraf Hakimi, on loan from Real Madrid, then scored on his Dortmund debut early in the second half with his first shot, before Reus grabbed his second after one-touch play with Bruun Larsen. The Dortmund captain went off shortly afterwards to applause from the home supporters.
Swiss defender Manuel Akanji scored the fifth with 15 minutes remaining, before Jadon Sancho added another in the 85th minute and Julian Weigl completed the rout.
Borussia Moenchengladbach's most expensive signing, Alassane Plea, broke the deadlock to set his side on its way to a 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 25-year-old Plea, who joined from French side Nice in the summer, scored his third goal of the season ten minutes into the second half.
Kevin Volland's two goals were enough for Bayer Leverkusen to win 2-1 at promoted Fortuna Duesseldorf, giving Heiko Herrlich's side a second victory after starting with three defeats.
Leipzig defeated visiting Stuttgart 2-0, and Mainz drew 0-0 with Wolfsburg.
