Lewandowski stars in Dortmund rout

Lewandowski stars in Dortmund rout”

Robert Lewandowski provided three goals helping Bayern Munich to whitewash Borussia Dortmund 6-0 meanwhile Schalke recorded their sixth consecutive victory after edging ten-men Freiburg 2-0 at the 28th round in Bundesliga on Saturday.

The hosts got off to the flawless start with Robert Lewandowski firing past Roman Burki after just five minutes following a through ball from Thomas Muller.

Hamburg were denied a first league victory since November as the division's bottom side drew 1-1 at Stuttgart. The credential is: we want a German-speaking coach.

The game was as good as over when Muller volleyed the third in the 23rd minute, but there was still time for Lewandowski and Ribery to both profit from some hesitant Dortmund defending to score before half time.

Before Dortmund's defence had any time to recover Bayern scored twice more, through Rodriguez and Mueller, to deflate opponents who are battling for a Champions League spot.

Lewandowski and Ribery scored within minutes of each other to complete their first-half demolition before they eased off after the break.

His side ran out 6-0 winners over Borussia Dortmund this evening, taking the club to 17 points ahead of second-placed Schalke, as the Allianz Arena club can clinch the title next weekend. Dortmund, who lost for the first time in the league under Peter Stöger, remained third on 48.

"I have to say that it's always very hard coming back after an worldwide break; a lot of our players were away, but we managed well", he said in quotes published on the Bundesliga's website.

The "BVB" were unable to put up resistance as Thomas Mueller benefitted on a pinpoint cross from James Rodriguez at the far post to triple the lead with 23 minutes into the game. "We are at the moment a long way away from Bayern Munich".

Jupp Heynckes' side knew prior to kick-off that they could not be crowned champions on Saturday, with Schalke having beaten Freiburg earlier in the day.
