BERLIN (AP) - Bayern Munich defeated Hannover 2-0 to maintain its 11-game winning streak at home in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Bayern seemed distracted by its new Oktoberfest-inspired brown and white strip in the first half but stepped up its performance after Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring in the 51st minute.

Franck Ribery pounced on a rebound to secure the win in the 64th.

Former Bayern midfielder Luiz Gustavo was sent off for the second time in his third game for new club Wolfsburg, which lost 3-1 at Bayer Leverkusen.

Kevin-Prince Boateng's first goal for Schalke was enough for a 1-0 win at Mainz, Eintracht Frankfurt won 3-0 at 10-man Werder Bremen, and Augsburg came from behind to beat Freiburg 2-1.

Borussia Dortmund was to host Hamburger SV in the late game.
