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

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

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.

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.

The German record champions recaptured the top spot after 161 days as Robert Lewandowski scored twice to sink harmless "Wolves" 6-0.

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

Substitute Pulisic settled the Dortmund nerves in the 90th to lift his team to 57 points, level with Bayern, who went top after their 6-0 demolition of VfL Wolfsburg.

Augsburg boosted their survival hopes with a commendable goalless draw at RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.

Later, Borussia Moenchengladbach bounced back from last weekend's 5-1 thumping at home to Bayern with a 1-0 win at mid-table Mainz, thanks to a second-half goal from defender Nico Elvedi.

Pizarro had always been the top-scoring foreign player in the league but has now been overtaken for the first time by Lewandowski.

Marco Reus converted from 12 yards, but they needed Paco Alcacer and Christian Pulisic to seal the three points after Marc-Oliver Kempf had levelled for Stuttgart.

Pulisic added gloss to the result with a third in stoppage time, but it was not enough to keep BVB top of the pile. "That also makes it fun". Kovac said it wouldn't have a negative effect on his team. "We must accept that, even if it hurts".

Mueller duly set up Serge Gnabry for Bayern's first in the 34th.

The Poland forward also took his tally against Wolfsburg to 20 goals in 17 matches. Goals from Joshua Kimmich and Lewandowski completed their rout.
