Bayern Munich top scorer Robert Lewandowski struck again as the German champions demolished Hoffenheim 4-0 Saturday to remain top of the Bundesliga, a point ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

With Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann in quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19 earlier this week, his side still managed another flurry of goals with Serge Gnabry opening the account in the 16th minute after an earlier goal by the Germany international was disallowed following a Video Assistant Referee review.

The Bavarians, who scored five times against Bayer Leverkusen last week and another four goals to beat Benfica in the Champions League Wednesday, struck again on the half-hour mark, with Lewandowski spectacularly thundering in a shot from 20 meters to take his league season tally to 10 goals.

The Pole has now scored 26 goals in 34 league matches in the calendar year of 2021, just six shy of the all-time Bundesliga record set by Gerd Mueller in 1972.

Late goals from substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Kingsley Coman sealed Bayern's win and moved them up to 22 points, one ahead of Dortmund.
