Bayern Munich move four points clear with victory over Borussia Dortmund — Result

Borussia Dortmund coach Peter Bosz praised Christian Pulisic as the best player on his team on Saturday, as they were swept aside by Bayern Munich in a 3-1 loss.

After Robben and the Dutch national team missed qualification for the 2018 World Cup, the striker retired from international football having scored both goals when the Netherlands beat Sweden 2-0 after 14 years in the Dutch jersey, 96 caps and 37 goals.

Third-placed Dortmund, who brought on Jadon Sancho as a substitute, scored a late consolation through Marc Bartra but fell six points behind Bayern.

Ole. What a nice move, but it won't please Pulisic as it was in a losing effort.

Bayern's victory was their seventh straight in all competitions since Heynckes took over last month following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti, while Dortmund are in complete free fall, suffering their third loss in their last four league games.

Germany international Werner set up Yussuf Poulsen for a 70th-minute equaliser after Hanover's Jonathas had tapped in and then snatched an 85th-minute winner for his sixth goal of the season.

Scenes as Bayern take the lead.

"Robben's goal in the first half underscored that we awarded".

Arp's rise could be bad news for Bobby Wood.

"Josh (Kimmich) spotted I was alone in the area and put in a good cross - it's my job to finish chances like that".

Dortmund have failed to address problems at centre-back, evident before Mats Hummels' return to Bayern Munich in 2016, and have not yet managed to find a back-up for 32-year-old right-back Piszczek.

Joining Dortmund after Thomas Tuchel's inevitable departure this summer, the Dutchman had not been the club's first-choice on a list which reportedly contained Hoffenheim's Julian Nagelsmann and Lucien Favre of Nice.

Mainz goalkeeper Robin Zentner was teased by teammates after an awkward incident in the 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Jeremy Toljan, another summer signing, has not given any indication he should be starting regularly while Neven Subotic, returned to the starting formation at Frankfurt, has barely had a chance as Bosz has put no trust in his abilities. Freiburg coach Christian Streich was accidentally bundled over by one of his own players in the first half, when his side twice hit the crossbar.

Dortmund proved a threat on the counter-attack despite being penned inside their own half for long periods, Sven Ulreich racing off his line to stop Andriy Yarmolenko steering home from Gonzalo Castro's pass as the match sprang to life.

Also, Bayer Leverkusen drew at Augsburg 1-1.
