Bayern hit six in return to Bundesliga peak

Bayern hit six in return to Bundesliga peak

Despite the win, Dortmund lost the league lead to Bayern Munich on account of the Bavarian powerhouse's 6-0 rout at home over Wolfsburg.

Robert Lewandowski has become the top foreign goalscorer in Bundesliga history.

Lewandowski shared the record for one week with Pizarro, who remains the oldest player to score in the league at 40 years, 136 days, in a 1-1 draw for Bremen at Hertha Berlin on February 2.

Bayern, who have now won 12 of their last 13 league matches, are on 57 points, ahead on goal difference from Dortmund, who won 3-1 against strugglers VfB Stuttgart.

James Rodriguez fired in the third in the 52nd and Thomas Muller added the fourth.

The trio have since vented their frustration over coach Joachim Loew's decision but they will be more motivated now, said Bayern forward Robert Lewandowski.

"We are where we wanted to be, at the top of the table, and we want to stay there". The Poland worldwide added a late second to take his Bundesliga tally to 197 goals.

Christian Pulisic showed up when Dortmund needed him most.

The third goal came when Axel Witsel beat three defenders, played Mario Goetze into the box to set up Pulisic, who netted in stoppage time.

"Stuttgart defended really well and were organised".

"They parked a big bus (in front of goal) - it was hard to find the holes", complained Dortmund coach Lucien Favre.

Lewandowski hit five goals in nine minutes off the bench against Wolfsburg in the 2015-16 season but he wasted an early chance by failing to control a lofted Muller pass.

Mid-table Hertha Berlin crashed to a 2-1 defeat at Freiburg after the visitors captain Vedad Ibisevic cancelled out a Nils Petersen goal, but then scored an own-goal by turning the ball into the Berlin net.

And Kovac wants Bayern, 5-1 winners at Borussia Monchengladbach last time out, to maintain their high standards.
