Last Updated: 11/04/15 10:44pm
Bayern Munich moved a step closer to a third straight Bundesliga title thanks to a 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt.
Robert Lewandowski boosted his own chances of winning the golden boot award at the end of his first season with Bayern, and a second in a row after finishing the league's top-scorer with Borussia Dortmund last season, by netting two goals in a commanding victory for Pep Guardiola's men.
Bayern also had a goal disallowed and they struck the woodwork before Thomas Muller added a third, with few doubts from start to finish that they would pick up all three points once again.
It was downhill all the way for Bayern after Lewandowski gave them the lead after only 15 minutes.
Thomas Muller put him in position to shoot, but it took a sweet, unstoppable volley to beat Kevin Trapp into the top left-hand corner.
Lewandowski could have had a second goal 10 minutes later, but Trapp reacted well to deny him.
Bayern had the ball in the back of the net again shortly before half-time, but after consultation with his linesman, the referee ruled out Muller's effort for offside, even though the ball came to him from an opponent.
Bayern were again close to a second on the hour mark when Mario Gotze struck the left-hand post, with the ball rebounding out to safety.
The hosts did not have long to wait for their second, though, with Gotze's shot blocked by Makoto Hasebe, but the ball fell kindly for Lewandowski to tuck in for his 16th goal of the season. He is now just three behind Eintracht Frankfurt's Alexander Meier.
Lewandoski did not complete his hat-trick, but there was a third in the match for Bayern with Muller netting from a tight angle in the 82nd minute, setting the Bavarians up in style for their Champions League quarter-final with Porto in midweek.
