Bayern Munich cruised to a 3-1 victory over title rivals Borussia Dortmund to open a four-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga.
Bayern have looked a different side since Jupp Heynckes took over from Carlo Ancelotti and not even Dortmund could stop them.
Arjen Robben fired the champions ahead with a curling effort from just inside the area before Robert Lewandowski made it 2-0 from Joshua Kimmich’s pass.
Defender David Alaba added the third.
Third-placed Dortmund, who brought on Jadon Sancho as a substitute, scored a late consolation through Marc Bartra but fell six points behind Bayern.
London-born Sancho, a 17-year-old former Manchester City youth forward, replaced Andriy Yarmolenko, who had earlier twice been denied by Sven Ulreich.
Ulreich also kept out a stinging shot by leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
At the other end, Lewandowski had a header saved at point-blank range by Roman Burki.
The match had been billed as a major test of Bayern’s title credentials – and they passed it with a clinical display to win a fourth successive league match.
Bayern – looking to win the Bundesliga title for the sixth successive season – have won six games and drawn two since an unexpected 2-0 defeat at Hoffenheim on 9 September.
