Berlin, Safar 29, 1439, November 18, 2017, SPA -- Bayern Munich increased their lead atop the Bundesliga
to six points on Saturday with a comfortable 3-0 win over local

Lewandowski completed his brace early in the second half to kill the tie.
Second-placed RB Leipzig lost ground to the leaders as they were held 2-2 at 10-man Bayer Leverkusen while Borussia Moenchengladbach went third by downing Hertha Berlin 4-2 in the late game.
Hoffenheim drew 1-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt, bottom club Cologne's miserable season continued with a 1-0 loss at Mainz and Wolfsburg beat Freiburg 3-1.
On Friday Borussia Dortmund extended their slump by losing 2-1 at VfB Stuttgart.
