Bayern boss Hansi Flick believes Dormund clash is not the title decider

Hans-Dieter Flick, head coach of FC Bayern Muenchen looks on prior to the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Eintracht Frankfurt at Allianz Arena on May 23, 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick says Tuesday's game with Borussia Dortmund is not a Bundesliga title decider.

Bayern maintained their four-point lead over Dortmund at the top of the table with a 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt shortly after Dortmund had won at Wolfsburg.

Goals from Leon Goretzka, Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski and Alphonso Davies completed the thumping win.

They could move seven points clear and put one hand on an eighth successive league title with a win, but Flick says nothing will be decided on Tuesday.

“We hope for a nice game on Tuesday," he said on the club's official website. "Regardless of the result, nothing will be decided afterwards."

Despite the emphatic scoreline, there were areas of concern for Bayern. After goals from Goretzka, Muller and Lewandowski put them 3-0 up, their vulnerability at set-pieces was highlighted as Martin Hinteregger scored twice inside four minutes to make a game of it.

Davies restored some calm with a fourth goal, tough, and then Hinteregger put through his own net to make it a comfortable ending for the hosts.

"I'm very happy with the first half," Flick added. "We dominated. The first half was as we imagined it to be.

"After the break we came out and made it 3-0. Maybe we ticked off the game a bit afterwards and maybe the concentration was missing.

"We weren't that good against the ball. Frankfurt has very good standards. We knew that. We didn't look well there. We look at that and will learn from it."
