Bayern Munich scored all their five goals before the break to grab a comfortable 5-1 victory away at Bayer Leverkusen and maintain the top spot in the Bundesliga table.

It took Robert Lewandowski just four minutes to score his eighth league goal in the same number of games so far this season and give the visitors the lead.

The Poland international doubled the Bavarians’ lead on the half hour mark and Bayern Munich went on to score another three goals in the following seven minutes to dispatch Bayer Leverkusen.

Thomas Muller netted his team’s third and produced an assist for Serge Gnabry for their fourth, with 26-year-old winger completing a brace to round off their win at the BayArena.

All Bayer Leverkusen managed to do was to pull one back after the break through Patrik Schick, but the game was practically over before that point, as Bayern Munich had put it to bed in the first half.

Bayern Munich are sitting top of the Bundesliga table with 19 points, while Bayer Leverkusen are in third place, just two points shy of the Bavarians.
