  • Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Five Key Duels In Blockbuster Clash

They came out on top in the Der Klassiker derby on Saturday against Borussia Dortmund through goals from Arjen Robben, David Alaba and Robert Lewandowski to win the game 3-1.

Bayern moved six points clear of Dortmund, which previously led the league after making its best-ever start, and stayed four points above Leipzig after extending Jupp Heynckes' record to seven wins from seven games across all competitions.

Bayern's trajectory starkly contrasts with that of BVB, who have seen their five-point lead after seven matchdays vanish and their hopes of Champions League progression all but dashed amid a run of just one win in seven in all competitions.

"We've worked hard for it".

James Rodriguez controlled Thiago Alcantara's cross on his chest and laid the ball back for Robben to cut inside and fire it into the top left corner. "We have to keep our feet on the ground", said Robben, who opened the scoring with his 93rd Bundesliga goal. "You have to admit Dortmund had very good chances, but Sven Ulreich kept us in the game".

Bayern - looking to win the Bundesliga title for the sixth successive season - have won six games and drawn two since an unexpected 2-0 defeat at Hoffenheim on 9 September.

Freiburg dropped into the bottom three as Hamburg saw off 10-man Stuttgart 3-1.

Arp's rise could be bad news for Bobby Wood.


Mainz goalkeeper Robin Zentner was teased by teammates after an awkward incident in the 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

The champions did not take long to find their rhythm on enemy territory, though, and they were in front 17 minutes in from the first attempt of the evening.

But Heynckes says Bosz - who was only appointed in the close-season after leaving his post at Ajax - deserves more time to implement his methods.

What's going on here then?

Timo Werner struck late for Leipzig to come from behind and beat visiting Hannover 2-1 to move to second.

Alaba put the game beyond Dortmund midway through the second half as his cross found the net after the ball glanced off Lewandowski. Freiburg coach Christian Streich was accidentally bundled over by one of his own players in the first half, when his side twice hit the crossbar.

They are also coming off a Champions League win over Celtic.
