Reigning champion Bayern dominated from the start in its Allianz Arena stadium with Polish worldwide Lewandowski grabbing a double as he was on the scoresheet for the 11th straight league match.

Neither side has found form, with Bayern having lost coach Niko Kovac after a 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt with just 18 points from 10 games.

Bayern are now fourth in the Bundesliga, four points behind leaders Borussia Mönchengladbach. "Unbelievable. It was very poor from us", Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said.

Arsène Wenger has revealed that he is now considering the idea of becoming Bayern Munich's new manager after speaking with club director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

"My name came out of nowhere", said Wenger in an interview with beIN Sports on Friday. I have respect for Arsene. "I don't want to have stress with him", the former Germany global said after the game on Saturday. I don't want to stress him'.

Dortmund know only too well the danger of Lewandowski, but they granted the Poland striker the freedom of the penalty area to head home the opening goal from Benjamin Pavard's cross from the right.

The government has so far not confronted the spreading police rebellion, attempting instead to minimize its scale and importance. The opposition has disputed the results and criticized the vote-counting process, citing the alleged lack of transparency.

Wenger has been keeping busy with punditry work for the UEFA Champions League and English Premier League this season.

With Dortmund's resistance broken, Hummels turned into his own net when under pressure from Thiago Alcantara to compound a miserable outing against his former employers.

Bayern gets a narrow victory with a late goal by Thiago.

To mark the 30th anniversary, a replica of the Wall, which divided Germany's capital from 1961, separated Hertha and Leipzig before being knocked down prior to kick-off.

Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho was hooked off on 36 minutes after failing to make an impact on proceedings.

However, Timo Werner equalized from the penalty spot for the visitor and Marcel Sabitzer added Leipzig's second on the stroke of the halftime break.
