Saturday's Bundesliga: Bayern Beat Schalke To Extend Lead

Goals from Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski were enough to see Bayern Munich to a hard fought 2-1 win over Schalke 04.
Lewandowski equalled a scoring record set by his absent manager Jupp Heynckes as Bayern beat Schalke to go 18 points clear at the top.

The Pole has scored in the first 11 home games of the Bundesliga season, something only Heynckes has done, for Borussia Monchengladbach in 1972-73.

Heynckes was bed-ridden with flu as Bayern won their 12th game in a row.

Schalke's Franco di Santo levelled after Lewandowski's opener with Muller scoring the winner.

Lewandowski tapped in Bayern's first after Muller's 20-yard shot was parried straight to him by Fahrmann.

Di Santo equalised from 14 yards, but Muller beat the keeper at his near post from a tight angle for the winner.
