(REUTERS) - Bayern Munich showed no signs of letting up as they routed Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 on Sunday for their 10th straight home win of the season in the Bundesliga.

Mario Goetze, Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Dante and Mario Mandzukic shared the goals for Bayern who are an emphatic 13 points clear of Bayer Leverkusen and appear to have the title race wrapped up with nearly half the season still to play.

There was a sense of the inevitable when Goetze put Bayern ahead with a superb finish after 12 minutes, collecting the ball on his chest from a Mandzukic header and firing past Kevin Trapp.

Eintracht managed to keep Bayern at bay until the 44th minute when Ribery added the second when he snapped up a rebound after Mandzukic's header was blocked.
