          Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund both made it six consecutive league wins roday as the Bundesliga’s leading pair set their sights on a mouthwatering top of the table clash on Tuesday.

          Bayern had a brief scare against Eintracht Frankfurt before running out 5-2 winners as Robert Lewandowski scored his 41st goal of the season, while Dortmund’s fullbacks both netted in a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg to maintain a four point gap to the leaders, who they face on Tuesday.

          Bayern looked to have secured an easy win against last season’s Europa League semi-finalists with a superb take from Leon Goretzka followed up by Thomas Muller and Lewandowski, but Eintracht centre back, Martin Hinteregger, threw a spanner in the works, turning home twice from corners in the space of three minutes.

          Alphonso Davies then capitalised on some horrific defending to ease the pressure, before Serge Gnabry saw Hinteregger go from hero to villain, turning his pass into his own net for a 5-2 win.

          Things were a little more simple for title rivals Borussia Dortmund though, with fullback Raphaël Guerreiro finishing off Thorgan Hazard’s pullback just after the half hour mark to take the lead away to Wolfsburg, and with 12 minutes to play, substitute Jason Sancho teed up Guerreiro’s right sided counterpart, Achraf Hakimi, to put the game to bed.

          Below the top two, Bayer Leverkusen continued their incredible form in 2020 with Kai Havertz doing the same, slotting home deftly for a seventh minute lead over Borussia Monchengladbach.

          Gladbach struck back through Marcus Thuram after half-time, but Havertz scored again from the spot before Sven Bender put the game to bed in front of an impressively effective crowd of cardboard cut-out supporters.

          Elsewhere, Werder Bremen picked up a huge win in their survival bid beating Freiburg away from home thanks to Leonardo Bittencourt, while bottom side Paderborn picked up their second point in two games, impressing despite their miniscule wage bill.
