Reus stepped up and made no mistake to make it 1-1 with 46 minutes into the game.It was a short-lived joy for the hosts though as Bayern responded with the 2-1 lead just moments later — Lewandowski wrapped up his second of the night from very close range in the 53rd minute.Dortmund remained unimpressed and pressed forward but Reus squandered the golden chance from inside the box as Joshua Kimmich blocked Reus’ attempt on the goal line.Bayern thought they had extended the lead but Lewandowski’s third goal was ruled offside. Dortmund continued on the front foot and their efforts got rewarded in the 67th minute when Reus unleashed a volley from inside the box to beat Neuer.Things went from bad to worse for the German record champions, as Dortmund’s substitute Paco Alcacer sealed the deal in the closing period after slotting a through ball past onrushing Neuer.With the victory, Borussia Dortmund stays atop the standings with 27 points and maintain a four-point advantage over second-placed Borussia Monchengladbach, who beat Werder Bremen 3-1 on Saturday.
