Bayern München maintained their four-point lead over Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga table with a 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt at Allianz Arena on Saturday.

After creating a number of chances in the opening minutes, Bayern broke the deadlock through Leon Goretzka, who rifled home a low cross from Thomas Müller with 17 minutes played.

Bayern continued their dominance and doubled their lead four minutes before half-time, when Müller controlled a cross from Alphonso Davies and sent the ball into the net.

With just one minute played of the second half, Robert Lewandowski made it 3-0, planting a header past Frankfurt keeper Kevin Trapp to score his 27th league goal of the season.

But just as it looked like a comfortable win for Bayern, Martin Hinteregger pulled two goals back for the guests within the space of a few minutes.

First, the centre-back was allowed space to volley the ball into the net inside the box before he headed the ball in after a corner kick with 55 minutes on the clock.

However, just as Frankfurt thought they were back in it, Alphonso Davies made it 4-2 to Bayern with 61 minutes played. And with 16 minutes remaining, an own goal from Hinteregger effectively killed off the game.

After winning their sixth Bundesliga game in a row, Bayern could take another step towards an eighth consecutive league title when they lock horns with top-of-the-table rivals Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday.
