Bundesliga Round-Up: Bayern Munich Beat Borussia Dortmund To Go Six Points Clear

The result has moved Bayern six points clear of die Schwarzgelben in the league table, something that seemed impossible when Heynckes replaced Carlo Ancelotti at the Allianz Arena.

"We shouldn't get carried away".

"I also have to compliment our medical department". "You have to admit Dortmund had very good chances, but Sven Ulreich kept us in the game".

But despite Dortmund's jabs forward, Bayern remained in control for much of the match against punishing the yellow and black with a Robert Lewandowski flick taking a fortunate bounce in the 37th minute. We have seen them play and will prepare according to our play, but it will be up to the players to show that on the field.

Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, last season's top scorer just ahead of Lewandowski, has now failed to score in his last five games, although he still has 10 for the season.

That was a stance Heynckes reiterated at his pre-match media briefing, insisting that he was merely protecting Lewandowski from the threat of injury.

Defender Marc Bartra, who was injured in April's bomb attack on the Dortmund team bus, scored the hosts' consolation goal two minutes from time.

Daniel Ginczek equalized from the spot 10 minutes into the second half, but two goals in the space of five minutes from Filip Kostic and Jann-Fiete Arp saw Hamburg home.

"Dortmund will be much more concentrated and attentive, their own fans forgive their own players against Bayern".

Dortmund have managed only one victory in their last six games in all competitions and a 1-1 home draw in the Champions League against APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus on Wednesday underlined their current struggles.

Bayern, meanwhile, have been rolling ever since the arrival of interim manager Jupp Heynckes, who has re-taken the reins at the club he's best known for managing and winning championships with. We just chased after them and were always too late, so you can't talk about us being a top team.

Abdou Diallo had already put the visitors in front when Zentner controlled a routine back pass with his right boot.

"We didn't come out ready to play in the first half".

"I think Sanchez has already decided which club (to join), so I suppose that the door will be closed in January", Rummenigge said.
