Dortmund edge closer to Bundesliga crown

Borussia Dortmund moved a step closer to clinching the Bundesliga title thanks to a 3-0 triumph against SC Freiburg and a 5-1 loss for rivals Bayer 04 Leverkusen at FC Bayern München.

After dropping seven points in their last four matches, Borussia Dortmund got back to winning ways with a 3-0 success against SC Freiburg.

Mario Götze (23), Robert Lewandowski (43) and Kevin Grosskreutz (78) scored the goals that enabled the Bundesliga pacesetters to stretch their lead to eight points with four matches left. Bayer 04 Leverkusen's faint hopes of catching Jürgen Klopp's men suffered a huge setback earlier in the day when they were humbled 5-1 by FC Bayern München, who were playing for the first time under caretaker coach Andries Jonker.

A Simon Rolfes own goal (7) set Bayern on their way, before Mario Gomez took his league tally to 22 league goals with a first-half hat-trick − his fifth in all competitions this season. Franck Ribéry applied the coup de grace (75), after Eren Derdiyok (67) had pulled one back, for a rout that took the home team back up to third, a point above Hannover 96.
