European round-up: Bayern go top as Lewandowski sets new mark

European round-up: Bayern go top as Lewandowski sets new mark

Dortmund now sits in second place in league standings after Bayern cruised to a 6-0 victory against Wolfsburg and took the lead on goal differential.

Lewandowski's record-breaking exploits take the headlines but a goal and an assist in the space of three first-half minutes saw Gnabry play a huge part in setting up Bayern's latest win.

Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Mueller were all in the starting lineup of Bayern on Saturday, only days after they were dropped from the national team. He will rarely have scored easier goals either as Serge Gnabry, who had given Bayern the lead, squared the ball for Lewandowski to slot home into an open goal. Bayern leads on goal difference with nine rounds remaining.

On Friday: Serie A: Juventus 4 (Kean 11, 39, Can 67-pen, Matuidi 71) bt Udinese 1 (Lasagna 84).

Lewandowski added a second in the latter stages on his 150th Bundesliga appearance for Bayern to continue his prolific form against Wolfsburg, taking his tally to 16 in eight games.

"I am very satisfied and I liked the way we played", said Bayern coach Niko Kovac.

"We should have scored more goals".

As a result, the 30-year-old player has become the Bundesliga's highest scoring foreign player, surpassing Werder Bremen's Peru forward Claudio Pizarro, who has netted 195 goals so far in the league.

Bayern Munich talisman Robert Lewandowski has hinted that he could be happy to stay with the Bundesliga champions until the end of his career.

The Ruhr valley club had earlier in the season enjoyed a nine-point advantage over the Bavarians, who were last top of the table back in September.

It was also the 12th consecutive defeat for Wolfsburg coach Bruno Labbadia against Bayern, more than any other coach against a single opponent. "Stuttgart had parked a huge bus in front of their goal", Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said of only their second win in the last six league games.
