Leverkusen: Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen wasted no time in a 4-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Leverkusen led 3-0 after 11 minutes, with Stefan Kiessling striking from short-range, a header by Stefan Reinartz and Toni Kroos’ blast high into the net from the edge of the penalty area. Substitute Lars Bender wrapped up matters Friday night from a tight left angle in the 86th.

“We played a great match. We got the three points and can be very happy,” said Kroos.

Leverkusen, the only unbeaten team in the league, opened a four-point lead with now 26 points. Werder Bremen and SV Hamburg have 22 each, and Schalke 04 are fourth with 21. Frankfurt are 10th with 16 points.
