Thorgan Hazard provided an assist for the second goal cutting back the ball for the second goal seven minutes later.

Slowly Bayern Munich picked up possession before Leroy Sane found Robert Lewandowski who tapped the first one for the host.

The Bundesliga giants levelled things before halftime when the Polish striker scored from the penalty spot when Kingsley Coman was brought down by Mahmoud Dahoud in the 44th minute.

Hansi Flick’s side moved to the top of the Bundesliga table when Leon Goretzka netted the third as the Polish striker sealed the all important three points at the end of normal time.

Haaland and Lewandowski achievements

At only the age of 20, the two goals ensured Haaland reached his 100 senior goals in just 145 matches played so far.

Lewandowski on the other hand took his tally to 267 goals, one behind Klaus Fischer who is second position in the all time Bayern Munich scoring charts.

The host saw defender Boateng limp out with injury as he blocked Hazard’s pass from reaching Dortmund captain Reus.

Haaland was also substituted and received a back heel treatment hoping that he will be available for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Sevilla.
