Whilst away teams continue to enjoy success since the return of Bundesliga, there was no such luck for Fortuna Düsseldorf when they visited the Allianz Arena, suffering a 5-0 thrashing to a rampant Bayern Munich side.

Hans Flick’s Bayern team played with a quality and intensity that the relegation battlers could not handle, with world-class forward Robert Lewandowski netting two of the goals.
This, as well as a 1-0 midweek victory in 'Der Klassiker', means Bayern now have a 10-point lead over their nearest challengers Borussia Dortmund, who travel to Paderborn on Sunday.
There were wins away from home for Eintracht Frankfurt at Wolfsburg, Hoffenheim at Mainz and Werder Bremen at Schalke, whose horrible run of form continues. Kai Havertz maintained his goal-scoring run as he grabbed the only goal of Bayer Leverkusen’s road win at Freiburg.
Bruno Labbadia’s strong start to life in the capital as Hertha Berlin manager goes on, as his team were 2-0 victors over Augsburg at the Olympiastadion, propelling Die Alte Dame into the conversation about Europa League qualification.
January signing Krysztof Piatek secured the three points with his injury time goal after former Manchester City winger Javairo Dilrosun opened the scoring in the first half. Hertha Berlin also drew 2-2 with top-four chasers RB Leipzig during the week.
Meanwhile, current Man City winger Leroy Sane continues to be linked to a move to Bayern Munich.
