Robert Lewandowski scored his 100th goal for Bayern Munich, who beat Eintracht Frankfurt to go ten points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

Branimir Hrgata was denied the opening goal by a world-class tackle from Mats Hummels, whose last ditch challenge was took the ball off the toes of the striker after he rounded Manuel Neuer and was about to score.

Frankfurt lasted for 38 minutes before Bayern made the breakthrough. It came courtesy of their talisman Lewandowski, who exchanged passes with Thomas Müller before sweeping the ball in from close range.

Bayern doubled their lead three minutes later through Douglas Costa, who got on the end of David Alaba’s cross from the left to turn the ball past Lukas Hradecky.

Lewandowski scored his second goal of the game – and his 100th goal in 136 games for Bayern – drilling a low shot in at the far post after Arjen Robben picked him out from the right.
