Robert Lewandowski scored twice against Fortuna Dusseldorf to equal his most prolific season as Bayern Munich moved 10 points clear at the top.
Bayern were 3-0 up by half-time, Benjamin Pavard and Lewandowski scoring after Mathias Jorgensen’s own goal opened the scoring.
Lewandowski’s 43rd goal in all competitions this campaign made it 4-0 in a crushing win.
19-year-old Alphonso Davies added the fifth with a superb individual effort.
It will require an exceptional set of circumstances to deny Bayern an eighth successive Bundesliga title at the end of June.
Second-placed Borussia Dortmund will cut Bayern’s lead to seven points with five games remaining if they win at bottom club Paderborn on Sunday, May 31, 2020, but Bayern look as ruthless as ever.
This was their fourth straight victory since the Bundesliga season restarted earlier this month, and they have scored 13 goals and conceded just two since the resumption of the campaign.
