Leroy Sane scored Bayern's 3rd goal to edge the Bavarians past Dortmund as Bayern tops the Bundesliga table with 3 points at the Signal Iduna Park.
AllNews understands that Robert Lewandowski scored his 11th goal in just his sixth Bundesliga game this season as Bayern Munich went top of the table on Saturday with a 3-2 win at Borussia Dortmund.
The Polish striker's goal was his 259th goal in 300 games for Bayern Munich.
"In the end, we deserved the win and such victories are doubly important for us," said midfielder Leon Goretzka as Bayern saw off their rivals.
After Marco Reus had put Dortmund ahead, David Alaba blasted home a free-kick to make it 1-1 at halftime behind closed doors at Signal Iduna Park.
Lewandowski gave Bayern the lead with a superb header early in the second half before Leroy Sane grabbed the visitors' third.
Erling Braut Haaland gave Dortmund hope with a late goal but was left to regret earlier misses.
"I have to score more goals, if we don't put our chances away at this level, then we won't win," said Haaland, who converted one of four shots on goal.
"They are the best team in the world and we have to work harder to take the next step to be as good as them".
The 32-year-old Lewandowski could have finished with a hat-trick against his former club after also having two goals disallowed by the VAR.
The win leaves Bayern two points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig with Dortmund third, three points behind Munich.
