Robert Lewandowski Powers Bayern Munich to Dominant Win vs. Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Five Key Duels In Blockbuster Clash

Bayern Munich next face FC Augsburg in two weeks time and will be looking to extend their league at the top of the German league.

Arjen Robben's superb left-footed effort put them ahead in the 17th minute and forward Robert Lewandowski added a second when he flicked in with a back heel for his 11th of the season.

Lewandowski is available after missing the 2-1 win over Celtic with Heynckes assuring fans the striker "has not sustained an injury, but an overburdening", while also saying that "Dortmund will be much more concentrated and attentive" this weekend.

The chances continued to come, with Andriy Yarmolenko sent clean through on goal, but he took too long and saw his tame shot easily blocked by goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

Mats Hummels played a vital role in that Bayern win, keeping his former side at bay until Marc Bartra's late consolation goal.

Bayern moved six points clear of Dortmund, which previously led the league after making its best-ever start, and stayed four points above Leipzig after extending Jupp Heynckes' record to seven wins from seven games across all competitions.

The match lived up to its top Bundesliga billing with an entertaining first half and with Bayern gradually taking control.

Dortmund were more than happy to sit off their opponents in the opening 45 minutes and cede possession, which initially looked to work well enough as they were given the chance to counter-attack.

After Aubameyang wasted his first chance of the match, Robben rounded off an exquisite Bayern move to give Bayern a 16th-minute lead.

"We turned in an outstanding display against a very good team today, especially in the first half", Heynckes told the Bayern Munich website.

Forward Timo Werner set up a goal and scored a late victor himself as Leipzig battled from a goal down against Hanover.

Dortmund have managed only one victory in their last six games in all competitions and a 1-1 home draw in the Champions League against APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus on Wednesday underlined their current struggles.

However, Filip Kostic put Hamburg back in front and Germany Under-17 worldwide Jann-Fiete Arp, with his second in two games, sealed the win.

"Maybe the timing of this game is right", Bosz said.
