Marco Reus made his first appearance of the season and Michy Batshuayi scored again as Borussia Dortmund defeated Hamburger SV 2-0 on Saturday for its 500th Bundesliga win at home.

Heynckes, now Bayern coach, wasn't in the stadium to see it as he skipped the game due to flu.

Despite Lewandowski's feat, Bayern captain Thomas Mueller scored the goal of the day in Germany to seal the win which restored Munich's 18-point lead as Schalke drop to sixth.

The second half started as the first ended, but Christian Pulisic fired a ball across goal and Batshuayi slid in to score his third in two games since moving on loan from Chelsea. We're glad we won.

- Mario Gotze scored on an assist by Andre Schurrle - the last time in all competitions that these two players combined in this way was the winning goal in the FIFA World Cup Final 2014 (1-0 AET against Argentina).

Batshuayi made the breakthrough with Dortmund's first shot on target and he celebrated his first home goal for the club with a somersault celebration that echoed one of the departed Aubameyang's favoured ways of marking a goal.

Schalke refused to buckle, however, and was rewarded for its intensity when Franco di Santo equalized before the half-hour mark.
