Lewandowski's five goals in numbers

Five Aside
 By Shaka Hislop

Bayern Munich stay top but Barcelona slip down the Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno says there's no hope for anyone else in the German league; Bayern Munich are in a league of their own.

The top two remain the same but last season's treble winners take a big tumble down Shaka Hislop's Top 10.

1. Bayern Munich (no change)

My ESPN FC colleague Ale Moreno put it best when he said, in the aftermath of Bayern's 5-1 thrashing of Borussia Dortmund, that the Bundesliga title race is "100 percent over". With Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski each scoring twice, Pep Guardiola's side eased past the only other team who had shown any evidence that they could challenge this season.

Muller and Lewandowski offer another masterclass for Bayern vs. Dortmund

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol reacts to Borussia Dortmund's staggering loss to Bayern Munich, and notes that the Bundesliga may be already won.

The supposed "Klassiker" turned into a damp squib as Bayern Munich stretched their lead to seven points at the top of the table with a crushing 5-1 defeat of nearest challengers Borussia Dortmund.

Thomas Muller scored twice in the first 35 minutes before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang replied with what proved to be a mere consolation for the visitors. Robert Lewandowski, almost inevitably, continued his rich vein of scoring form with a second half brace, while even Mario Gotze got in on the act, ending...

Bayern's Bundesliga dominance diminishing marquee match-up

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth gives you his betting tips for a weekend full of big matches.

Borussia Dortmund's successive Bundesliga titles in 2010-11 and 2011-12 under the effervescent Jurgen Klopp have undoubtedly spurred buoyant Bayern Munich onto bigger and better things in recent years, but the Bavarians' ensuing dominance has come at a cost to the Bundesliga. The desired "classic" rivalry has died a death as Bayern have romped to three titles in a row.

Over the course of a Bundesliga season, the point margins between the two sides have become gaping chasms. Dortmund were distant...

Bayern put perfect record to test vs. dangerous Dortmund in Klassiker

The highly anticipated match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund is nearly here as two of Europe's heavyweights go toe-to-toe at the Allianz Arena.

Many will criticise the Bundesliga for being a one-team league that lacks competition.

Three largely unchallenged title wins for Bayern Munich in a row provide ample evidence to support that widely held view. But there's another perspective.

From where the rejuvenated Borussia Dortmund are sitting right now, second in the table, the issue is not too little competition, but rather too much, in the shape of Bayern's 100 percent win record that has put Dortmund's superb start in the shade.

With 17...

Robert Lewandowski keeps Bayern Munich on top of Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop reveals his latest power rankings which see a lot of movement among the top five teams.

Robert Lewandowski has scored a month's worth of goals in the past week, ensuring that Bayern Munich remain at the top of the list.

1. Bayern Munich (no change)

Ho-hum, another week goes by in which Bayern destroy their opponents, winning 3-0 at Mainz and 5-0 vs. Dinamo Zagreb. Of those eight goals, Lewandowski scored five, which means he has 10 in his last three games. If life at Bayern wasn't sweet enough right now, they also got to go to Oktoberfest!

2. Real Madrid (no change)

Bayern Munich players, Pep Guardiola attend Oktoberfest

24 hours after their emphatic win over Dinamo Zagreb in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich took some time out to enjoy all that Oktoberfest has to offer.

After a 5-0 win vs. Dinamo Zagreb, we'd say Bayern Munich players deserve a break and a few beers.

We're not quite sure what Douglas Costa is doing.
Xabi Alonso and his wife, Nagore Aranburu, enjoyed the festivities.
Arjen Robben, Arturo Vidal and Rafinha chatted.

David Alaba, Kingsley Coman, Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Medhi Benatia posed for a picture.
For being at Oktoberfest, Mario Gotze doesn't seem to be having very much fun.
