Majestic Bayern floor Dortmund in Real warm-up

Majestic Bayern floor Dortmund in Real warm-up

Leaders Bayern Munich are racing to get key players fit in time for Saturday's big Bundesliga clash against Borussia Dortmund, with Thomas Mueller, Douglas Costa and keeper Manuel Neuer still in doubt.

Bayern are advancing towards a fifth successive title - 10 points clear of RB Leipzig and 15 ahead of fourth-placed Dortmund - despite Tuesday's hiccup against Hoffenheim, who won 1-0.

Jonker had been unbeaten in four games until Wednesday's loss at home to Freiburg.

Dortmund, on the other hand, was without Marco Reus, Andre Schuerrle, Julian Weigl, Shinji Kagawa, and Erik Durm, while Lukasz Piszczek stayed on the bench, forcing coach Thomas Tuchel to start 18-year-old defender Felix Passlack.

But they can rest easy this summer, with Bayern's chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stating that Carlo Ancelotti won't be trying to pinch any Dortmund players this summer. However, the Portuguese left-back was on target with his next attempt in the 20th minute, his piledriver flying into the top-left corner of the goal after Arturo Vidal's clearance fell straight to him.

But in the hosts' first meaningful attack, they took the lead as Robben and Philipp Lahm combined down the right before the latter picked out Ribery in the penalty area to drill a half-volley past Roman Burki after just four minutes.

That figure dwindled to 18 percent during the height of winter's storms before falling away later in the season. About 8 percent of California is still under some type of drought, according to the most recent U.S.

Arjen Robben restored Bayern's two-goal lead after the break, before Lewandowski netted his second of the game against his former club to seal the win for the Bavarians.

Dortmund's Aubameyang will want to cap his week to forget with another goal against Bayern. The top three automatically qualify for Europe's premier competition.

RB Leipzig scored a stoppage-time goal through substitute Yussuf Poulsen to snatch a 1-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen but ended the game with 10 men after captain Willi Orban was sent off. The result left Wolfsburg, the 2009 Bundesliga champions, in 14th place, a point above the relegation playoff spot.

Then 'Gladbach captain Lars Stindl struck the victor in the 80th to lift the side to eighth, a point behind Cologne in sixth.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Leipzig claimed the victor through their Scandinavian combination as Swedish playmaker Emil Forsberg put in the cross - his 16th assist of the season - for Denmark's Poulsen.
