Berlin: Bayern Munich earned their third straight win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Nuremberg on Saturday, but still found themselves third on goal difference in the Bundesliga.

French winger Franck Ribery's header on 69 minutes broke the deadlock before Dutch star Arjen Robben scored for Pep Guardiola's European champions who had missed a first-half penalty.

The win at Munich's sold-out Allianz Arena in front of 71,000 fans marks the start of a busy seven-day period for Bayern who have an away league game at Freiburg on Tuesday, then travel to Prague for Friday's showdown with Chelsea for UEFA'S Super Cup.
