Bayern down Leverkusen to close on Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich's Polish forward Robert Lewandowski (C) heads to score his team's fourth goal during the German first division Bundesliga football match Bayer 04 Leverkusen v FC Bayern Munich on June 6, 2020 in Leverkusen, western Germany.

Bayern Munich moved a step closer to winning an eighth straight Bundesliga title as they came from behind to beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 on Saturday.

Lucas Alario gave the hosts – who were without injured star Kai Havertz – the lead in the ninth minute.

But Bayern responded in impressive style as Kingsley Coman, Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry all scored before the break.

Robert Lewandowski made it 4-1 in the 66th minute and Bayern cruised home despite a late consolation goal from Florian Wirtz to move 10 points clear at the top of the table with four matches remaining.

Meanwhile, Leipzig were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Paderborn, Patrik Schick gave Leipzig the lead before Christian Strohdiek scored a dramatic injury-time equaliser for the Bundesliga's bottom side Paderborn to deny RB Leipzig all three points.
