Champions Bayern Munich outclassed title rivals Borussia Dortmund 3-1 away on Saturday to go four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and stretch their perfect run under coach Jupp Heynckes to seven straight victories in all competitions.

The Gabon international has struggled for form since missing out on the 2018 World Cup with his country and, though he scored one goal in the 3-2 defeat to Leipzig, is now on a five-game drought.

"You have to admit Dortmund had very good chances, but Sven Ulreich kept us in the game".

But despite Dortmund's jabs forward, Bayern remained in control for much of the match against punishing the yellow and black with a Robert Lewandowski flick taking a fortunate bounce in the 37th minute.

"If Bayern Munich someday looks for a replacement for Robben and [Franck] Ribery, then they have to put out their feelers for Pulisic.He is 19 years old and has high quality".

In typical Bayern fashion, those chances would prove costly as Lewandowski flicked Joshua Kimmich's right-sided cross past Burki via a telling touch from Omer Toprak on its way through - his seventh goal in seven matches against his former side.

Joining Dortmund after Thomas Tuchel's inevitable departure this summer, the Dutchman had not been the club's first-choice on a list which reportedly contained Hoffenheim's Julian Nagelsmann and Lucien Favre of Nice.

Lewandowski was deemed not to have got a touch to a cross from David Alaba - who was forced off with a hamstring injury in the second half - that ended up in the back of the net as the Bavarians put the result beyond doubt in the 67th minute.

Thirty four is an age in professional sports which does not leave much space for great dreams in the future.
