Bayern win again to cut Dortmund’s lead

Leon Goretzka scored twice to give champions Bayern Munich a 3-1 victory at Hoffenheim and cut Borussia Dortmund’s lead to three points as the Bundesliga resumed after the winter break.

The Germany midfielder scored both his goals in the first half and Robert Lewandowski added another in the 87th minute to earn the three points that lifted Bayern to 39, three behind Dortmund, who travel to RB Leipzig.

Bayern, who have now won their last six league games, were eager to lay a marker down at the start of the year, with Dortmund in command of the league and Liverpool awaiting in the Champions League round of 16 next month.

Hoffenheim coach Julian Nagelsmann had won the previous two home matches in the league against Bayern but his team were under pressure from the start and Oliver Baumann made a desperate stop on the line after a goal-mouth scramble.

He made another sensational save on Lewandowski’s 34th minute header but was beaten on the rebound by Goretzka.
