Poland skipper Robert Lewandowski has netted his 44 goals of the season as Bayern Munich smash Bayer Leverkusen 4-2 in the Bundesliga encounter at BayArena on Saturday evening.

The hosts had to do without their midfield talisman Kai Havertz who picked up an injury in the last encounter, while Jerome Boateng returned to the Bayern line-up.

Kai’s absence did not seem to affect Leverkusen in the early stages as the hosts took the lead in the ninth minute through Lucas Alario’s close-range finish.

Bayern eventually got their reward in the 27th minute as Coman made up for his earlier miss with a neat finish into the bottom corner after latching onto a pass from Leon Goretzka.

The visitors took control thereafter and eventually completed the turnaround three minutes before the break as Goretzka slotted home from close range after a free-flowing move.

There was enough time for Bayern to bag a third goal in the latter stages of the first, with Serge Gnabry getting in on the act with a neat finish over Hradecky from close range.

Robert Lewandowski made it 4-1 in the 66th minute to secured his 44th goal of the season.

Seventeen-year-old Florian Wirtz made the score a bit more respectable for Leverkusen after beating Neuer with an impressive finish in the 89th minute as the encounter ended 4-2 but Bayern 10 points clear at the top of the table with four matches remaining.
