Bayern beats Dortmund away to go further clear in Bundesliga

Alaba put the game beyond Dortmund midway through the second half as his cross found the net after the ball glanced off Lewandowski.

Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has refused to point the finger of blame at Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as the striker looks to snap his scoreless run against Bayern Munich.

"It was a very attack-minded game, both teams had lots of chances, but we scored three goals", said Lewandowski.

Four weeks ago you couldn't have foreseen we'd be six points clear of Dortmund and four clear of Leipzig now.

Having missed Bayern's 2-1 win at Celtic on Tuesday in the Champions League with a thigh injury, Lewandowski's goal was his 11th in the league in as many games this season.

Aubameyang heads into Saturday's Der Klassiker having failed to score in his past four matches, the Gabon global guilty of missing two glorious chances during Wednesday's 1-1 Champions League draw with APOEL.

Dortmund have now won just one of their last seven games in all competitions, a miserable run which leaves them also facing a group-stage exit from the Champions League, where they have just two points from four games.

Werner set up Yussuf Poulsen's equaliser and then netted an 85th-minute victor after the Brazilian Jonathas had given Hanover the lead at Leipzig's Red Bull Arena.

Bayern had been five points behind Dortmund last month before Heynckes returned to take over from the sacked Carlo Ancelotti for his fourth stint in charge.

Bayern boss Heynckes consequently omitted Lewandowski from the squad that won 2-1 at Parkhead in the Champions League in midweek, although he later stated his belief that Lewandowski would be fit to face his former club.

The visitors got off to a bad start when Dzenis Burnic was sent off for two bookings inside the opening 12 minutes and Aaron Hunt put Hamburg ahead eight minutes later. "The easiest way to do it is by winning a game again".

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.

Borussia Moenchengladbach dropped to seventh after their 1-1 draw at home to Mainz.

Augsburg and Bayer Leverkusen also drew 1-1.
