Robert Lewandowski and Alphonso Davies were among the goalscorers, as Bayern Munich moved one step closer to an incredible eighth consecutive Bundesliga title with a convincing 5-0 win over Fortuna Düsseldorf.
Bayern told their intention as Lewandowski had ruled out an early goal for offside before Benjamin Pavard accidentally turned in Zanka for 1-0.
Thomas Müller pressured Florian Kastenmeier to brilliant diving save shortly after, but Bayern didn’t have to wait long for goal number two. Once again, the provider was Joshua Kimmich, taking Pavard off from another pinpoint corner.
Once he got a block in on Kenan Karaman’s goal-bound attempt, Davies denied the visitors an unlikely route back to the match, but when Lewandowski started and finished a stunning team push with his season’s 28th league goal, and first-ever against Düsseldorf, any Fortuna hopes harboring to be still in the game were dashed.
As soon as the restart David Alaba stung Kastenmeier’s hands, Bayern had been all over Fortuna like a rash. Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry collaborated to set up Lewandowski for his second of the contest before Davies joined the act with a strong run and composed finish.
The record champions did not rest on their laurels, despite giving Karaman and Andre Hofmann presentable chances and getting the game sewn up.
Lewandowski went over and met the gloves of Kastenmeier on either side of Müller ‘s close-range attempt that was all-powerful and not accurate. Serge Gnabry was also thwarted, as Bayern pushed 10 points clear at the top on the back of an eighth consecutive Bundesliga win.
