Saturday's Bundesliga round-up
 
Hertha Berlin extended their unbeaten run to three games after cruising to a 3-0 triumph over a bitterly disappointed Hamburger SV at Olympiastadion Berlin.
 
The hosts went into the half-time break with a slender advantage, courtesy of Salomon Kalou's 17th-minute goal. Vidad Ibisevic doubled their advantage on 76 minutes before popping up again two minutes later to put the result beyond any doubt.
 
At Stadion im Borussia-Park, meanwhile, Borussia MG continued their steady rise up the Bundesliga standings as second-half goals from Havard Nordtveit and Ibrahima Traoré secured an impressive 2-0 victory over VfL Wolfsburg.
 
FC Ingolstadt returned to winning ways after recording a 2-0 win against an out-of-sorts Frankfurt at Audi-Sportpark, moving up to fifth place in the process.
 
Pascal Gross broke the deadlock in the 78th minute before Stefan Lex added to their advantage in the 84th minute, Tobias Levels providing the assist for both goals.
 
Elsewhere, Hannover 96 picked up their first win of the campaign as Salif Sané's 55th-minute effort secured a vital 1-0 victory over Bremen at HDI-Arena.
 
There was no separating TSG Hoffenheim and VfB Stuttgart as they played to an entertaining 2-2 draw at Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena. Kevin Volland scored on either side of the break for the hosts, while Jan Kliment and Timo Werner got on the scoresheet for Stuttgart.
