Robert Lewandowski helped Bayern Munich win at Borussia Dortmund 3-1 to throw his former side further into turmoil on Saturday with its third defeat in four Bundesliga games without a win.
Arjen Robben opened the scoring early before Lewandowski claimed his 11th league goal of the season. The Poland striker distracted two defenders to allow David Alaba’s cross go in to seal it in the second half.
Marc Bartra scored a consolation of sorts for Dortmund in the 88th minute.
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.
Bayern had been five points behind Dortmund last month before Heynckes returned to take over from the sacked Carlo Ancelotti for his fourth stint in charge.
