Bayern, Dortmund clash with Real Madrid, Monaco in mind

And with Bayern 15 points clear of their rivals the Allianz Arena clash will see the pair continue their personal battle to be the Bundesliga's top scorer.

The Poland frontman broke the offside trap to latch onto Thiago's through-ball before being hauled down by Burki as he tried to round the Dortmund goalkeeper.

Borussia Dortmund refused to go down with no fight and after 19 minutes in the match Raphael Guerreiro made sure to bring back suspense to the match using a thumping long range drive on a loose ball which went directly into the very best corner.

"We didn't want to take a risk, the shoulder is bruised and I hope I'll be 100 percent again for Wednesday", the striker told Sky.

We believe there will be goals in both nets in this match.

Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that Robert Lewandowski's shoulder injury is nothing serious and he is confident the Poland global will be ready for the upcoming Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

"We wanted to give an answer after Tuesday, we wanted to control the game", said Boateng, but admitted: "Real will be totally different in the Champions League".

The Bavarians got off to an explosive start and were 2-0 up after only 10 minutes with 34-year-old Ribery completing a dazzling move that wrongfooted the entire Dortmund defence twice in the fourth minute. "But it was balanced before his goal".

Hoffenheim suffered a shock 2-1 loss at Hamburg SV with Aaron Hunt scoring twice for the hosts, to remain third on 51, a point ahead of Dortmund.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel admitted his side had no answer on Saturday.

"Bayern are playing at the absolutely highest level". But in this match, it was Bayern's old guys who got the job done.

Former Bayern midfielder Sebastian Rode, making his first appearance in nearly four months as a half-time substitute, did not enjoy going back to the Allianz Arena.

"When you go two goals down, you have a tough task on your hands".

The game turned out to be a one-sided affair, with Lewandowski taking his league tally to 26 goals in a flawless dress rehearsal before next week's Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid.

And speaking about his fitness, he added: "I can feel it having played 45 minutes, but I've only been back in team training for five days now".
