Bayern top in Bundeslga as Leipzig beaten, Dortmund held
Lewandowski’s record-setting goal – no one else has scored as many goals in the first six games of a season – was enough for Bayern to edge a surprisingly difficult game.
Paderborn did not give up and Kai Pröger pulled one back in the 68th, only for Lewandowski to continue his scoring run 11 minutes later.
Dortmund was hoping to get over the disappointment of conceding a late equalizer against Eintracht Frankfurt but again had to be content with a point after Bremen grabbed a 2-2 draw.
The home side pushed for more and Marco Reus finally broke through in the 41st when he headed in Thorgan Hazard’s cross.
Schalke claimed a 3-1 win at previously unbeaten Leipzig as David Wagner’s side stretched its winning run to four games since a 3-0 loss at home to Bayern.
Leipzig winger Marcel Sabitzer struck the crossbar for the hosts and Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nübel made a stunning double save to deny Emil Forsberg and Sabitzer before Salif Sané headed the visitors into a 29th-minute lead.
Amine Harit made it 2-0 with a penalty in the 43rd, awarded by referee Manuel Gräfe after video consultation when the Schalke forward went down under Amadou Haidara’s challenge. Rabbi Matondo sealed the win in the 59th when he became only the third Welsh player to score in the league.
Forsberg pulled one back in the 84th but it was too little, too late for the home side.
Leverkusen won 3-0 at Augsburg, Gladbach beat Hoffenheim 3-0 away, and Wolfsburg held on for a 1-0 win at Mainz.
