Bayern Munich 4-0 Borussia Dortmund: Bundesliga champions earn massive win

Bayern Munich recorded a massive 4-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

A brace from Robert Lewandowski and one each from Serge Gnabry and Mats Hummels (OG) secured a maximum three-point for the Hans-Dieter Flick side.

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring in the 17th minute to continue his scoring streak in the Bundesliga this season.

Gnabry's cross from the right was initially cut out but bounced back to Pavard who was wide on the right. He passed the ball to an unmarked Lewandowski who heads in his 15th league goal of the season.

That goal saw Lewandowski become the first player in Bundesliga history ever to score on each of the first 11 games of a season. His tally of 15 goals after 11 matches also puts him on equal record set by Gerd Muller in the 1968/69 season.

Ten minutes after the first goal, Lewandowski was afforded plenty of time and space inside the box, he found Coman but his shot was cleared off the line by Hummels.

Dortmund made an early substitution with less than 10 minutes to the end of the first half, taking off Sancho for Guerreiro.

Just after the sub, Gnabry's saw his goal disallowed. Davies delivered a brilliant ball from the left straight to the feet of Lewandowski, whose first-time shot took a deflection off a defender and falls to Gnabry who tapped into the empty net. However, referee Felix Zwayer ruled the goal offside.

Dortmund got their best chance just before the sound of the half-time whistle when Guerreiro delivered an in-swinging free-kick from the right towards the back post. It was high and just too long for Witsel who could not get any direction on the ball.

Just after the restart, Bayern extended their lead when a long ball from the back dissected the Dortmund defence and suddenly Muller was completely free down the left. He speeds into the box and passed to Lewandowski who could not get a shot under pressure from a defender.

The ball falls to Gnabry who was left with a simple finish. Though it was initially ruled offside, a VAR confirmed it was a legitimate goal.

On the hour-mark, Dortmund manager Lucien Favre made a double substitution with Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer coming on for Gotze and Weigl.

With 20 minutes left on the clock, Dortmund came close when Hakimi powered down the right and sent a cross into the middle. Martinez got a toe on it, but Alcacer arrived at the far post and looked to bundle it over the line, he could not get his feet sorted and trickled wide.

The final 15 minutes was going to be interesting with the introduction of Philippe Coutinho who replaced Gnabry.

Lewandowski then got his second on the night to put the game past Dortmund. He collected a long ball forward, laid it off to Muller before scampering into the box to receive a return pass. A brilliant first touch set him up to tap it past goalkeeper Burki and into the empty net.

With ten minutes remaining, a devastating Dortmund conceded an own goal. Coutinho sprayed a long ball out to the left to Perisic who did a stepover past Hakimi before drilling a low cross toward the front post. Burki looed set to collect it, but Hummels stuck out a leg to clear it and diverted the ball past his goalkeeper into the net.

This is the fifth time in succession that Bayern will put four or more goals past Dortmund at the Allianz Arena in the Bundesliga having previously won 5-0, 6-0, 4-1 and 5-1.
