Bundesliga Golden Boot race: Can Timo Werner keep pace with Robert Lewandowski?

Robert Lewandowski and Timo Werner have served a titanic tussle for Bundesliga's Golden Boot, and with five matches remaining, the race can only get tighter. 

Lewandowski helped himself to a brace in Bayern's 5-0 hammering of Dusseldorf on Saturday, which also saw them stretch their lead at the top of the table. 

Werner will lead his RB Leipzig to battle on Monday night against FC Koln, hoping to add to his tally and keep pace with the Polish. 

Lewandowski scored two goals in the opening two matches after the restart, but Werner, who had not scored up until that time responded in spectacular fashion with a hat-trick against Mainz. 

Lewandowski currently leads the standings on 29 goals, five ahead of Werner. Can he get his name on the scoresheet to keep the race burning?

Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho is currently third on 17, after hitting a hat-trick against Paderborn on Sunday evening.
