Bayern beat Mainz to go up, Dortmund's Haaland scores again

SEDAN: Bayern Munich shot in three goals in the first 26 minutes to relieve the previous hosts Mainz 05 3-1 on Saturday and sees two clear points at the top of the Bundesliga with his sixth consecutive victory in the league.

Top scorer Robert Lewandowski on his eighth league goal in the eighth minute and Thomas Mueller and Thiago Alcantara added two more to raise the Bavarians to 42 points, two ahead of RB Leipzig who will face Borussia Moenchengladbach later.

Mainz , who had cut the deficit on the stroke of halftime with Jeremiah St. Juste, rarely threatened the visitors.

Borussia Dortmund enjoyed an even more dominant afternoon, knocking down Union Berlin 5-0 with two goals from the Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland.

Jadon Sancho opened his account on the 13th and the teenager Haaland added another five minutes later.

Dortmund scored twice more after the break with Marco Reus and Axel Witsel before Haaland punched his seventh goal in his three games for the Ruhr Valley club so far.
