Lewandowski on target as Bayern Munich see off Freiburg

Robert Lewandowski (front) of Bayern Muenchen challenges Dominique Heintz of Freiburg during the Bundesliga match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Sport-Club Freiburg at Allianz Arena on June 20, 2020 in Munich, Germany.

Robert Lewandowski inspired Bayern Munich to a staggering 15th victory in a row on Saturday, keeping them unbeaten in 2020 with two goals and an assist against Freiburg. 

The German champions breezed through the visitors, whose slim hopes of Europa League qualification were buried by the result. 

Joshua Kimmich opened the scoring with an extremely casual goal, sliding in after Lewandowski's lay-off with 15 minutes played. 

The Polish striker made it 48 for the season with his double in the 24th and 37th minute, tapping in two embarrassingly easy finishes - trademark strikes for the man who always seems to find himself in the right place at the right time.   

Lucas Holer poached his own consolation between Lewandowski's duo but Bayern remained firmly in control until the final whistle, cruising through a goalless second half. 

Meanwhile, Erling Haaland scored twice as Borussia Dortmund made sure of a second-place finish in the Bundesliga with a 2-0 victory away at RB Leipzig. 

Borussia Monchengladbach also leapfrogged Bayer Leverkusen into fourth to take control of their own UEFA Champions League destiny thanks to a 3-1 win over Paderborn.
