A record since the winter break of four wins in four, with 11 goals scored and none conceded, means Bayern are leaving their Bundesliga rivals trailing in their wake. A routine 4-0 victory over Schalke on Saturday, combined with Dortmund's shock 4-1 defeat to Hamburg and Leverkusen's 3-3 draw in Mönchengladbach takes FCB fully 15 points clear of champions BVB with 13 games remaining.
“Obviously it's been a wonderful weekend for us," said FCB president Uli Hoeneß following the leaders’ 17th win of the campaign. “It's looking good. The team is in very, very good form, as they proved again today," added chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, “we're unbelievably focused, but it's been that way all season. And we've shifted up another gear since the winter break. That's wonderful."
