Schalke deepens Wolfsburg relegation worries with 4-1 win

Schalke deepens Wolfsburg relegation worries with 4-1 win

The game comes with few major connotations in the table - Bayern has a 10-point lead on second place Red Bull Leipzig, and Dortmund has a 10-point cushion in fourth place - but the two Bundesliga giants should make for an exciting match.

"I can guarantee today that we have not contacted or will contact any of these players", he told WAZ.

The Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will be broadcast on FS1 and FOXD.

However, in the blink of an eye, Dortmund were back in the game.

The likes of RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim emerged major title contenders this season but from the way it looks at the moment, none but Bayern look the champions, yet again.

But in a whirlwind start, Arturo Vidal's shoddy clearance fell to the feet of Guerreiro who hammered the ball first time into the top corner.

Borussia Dortmund made an excellent beginning to the match at Allianz Arena with hotshot Ousmane Dembele driving to the penalty box and firing a drive on the bar after just two minutes to the sport.

Bayern put the result beyond doubt a minute later, Lewandowski winning and converting a penalty after he was tripped by Burki but appearing to injure his right shoulder in the process. Dortmund is 15 points behind in fourth place, one behind Hoffenheim in the last spot to guarantee Champions League football next season.

Leipzig captain Willi Orban was sent off with two minutes remaining but there was still time for Emil Forsberg to set up Poulsen's victor.

"We know all about the quality of BVB and will need our best performance to win the game", he said. His side stayed second, seven points clear of Hoffenheim.

One area of concern for the Bavarians is their level of motivation, which was lacking in the loss to Hoffenheim.

But American forward Bobby Wood crossed for Hunt to score Hamburg's victor with a quarter-hour remaining, lifting the side four points clear of the relegation zone after its fourth straight win at home.

After extending his contract to 2022, Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn had to pick the ball out of his net after only 13 minutes.

Cologne dropped to sixth after slumping to a 3-2 home loss against Borussia Moenchengladbach thanks to Lars Stindl's 80th-minute victor.

Piszczek joined Dortmund from Hertha Berlin in 2010.

But Forsberg staged one last run down the wing and found Poulsen, who slid in to score off the post deep in stoppage time to lift Leipzig to 58 points.
