Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski stole the show once more at the Allianz Arena as the Bavarians put Eintracht Frankfurt to the sword with a 3-0 win to go ten points clear at the top.
The record champions were made to toil against the Eagles in Munich, but after Eintracht squandered a number of big chances to take the lead, Bayern’s No. 9 showed them how it’s done as he tapped in to put the hosts in front with their first effort on target.
The Pole then secured his brace early in the second half with a perfect example of clinical forward play as he expertly controlled Arjen Robben’s right-wing cross and quickly stabbed the ball home before the Frankfurt defence could even react.
