Bayern thrash Fortuna to move 10 points clear at the top

Robert Lewandowski of FC Bayern Muenchen celebrates after scoring his team's third goal during the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Fortuna Duesseldorf at Allianz Arena on May 30, 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Robert Lewandowski scored twice against Fortuna Dusseldorf to equal his most prolific season as Bayern Munich moved 10 points clear at the top.

Bayern were 3-0 up by half-time, Benjamin Pavard and Lewandowski scoring after Mathias Jorgensen's own goal opened the scoring.

Poland forward Lewandowski's 43rd goal in all competitions this campaign made it 4-0 in a crushing win.

Teenager Alphonso Davies added the fifth with a superb individual effort.

It will require an exceptional set of circumstances to deny Bayern an eighth successive Bundesliga title at the end of June.

Second-placed Borussia Dortmund will cut Bayern's lead to seven points with five games remaining if they win at bottom club Paderborn on Sunday (17:00 BST) but Bayern look as ruthless as ever.

And further down the league, Schalke 04 are in free fall as they lost against the ever-improving Werder Bremen at home. Hertha Berlin have seemingly forgotten their pre-break poor form and won 2-0 against Augsburg, while Wolfsburg fell to Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 and Hoffenheim came away from Mainz 05 with a 1-0 victory.
