Bayer Leverkusen took an important step towards the Bundesliga title with a commanding 3-0 win over Bayern Munich, extending their lead over the German champions to five points.

But although Leverkusen are on course for the title, head coach Xabi Alonso is not taking anything for granted.

"We'll talk in May. We have to be realistic and keep our feet on the ground," the Spaniard said in a post-match interview.

Analyzing his team's performance, Xabi Alonso was naturally very satisfied.

"We wanted to be competitive. We did a great job, the discipline and compactness of the team was excellent. The whole performance was great, the commitment of the boys was very high.

"All the players did really well. We created a lot of chances and almost did not allow any ourselves. That was very important.

"I have a great team. We have a lot of energy and that's the key. There is no secret. The players believe and that's what we want.
