And for those of us who thought this could be a banner year for Borussia Dortmund, we’re only weeks away from telling Bayern Munich that we won’t get fooled again.

Niko Kovac’s Bavarians rode four first-half goals to a 5-0 hammering of their Der Klassiker rivals on Saturday at the Allianz Arena, moving back atop the Bundesliga table by a point.

Mats Hummels started the scoring with a powerful header off a corner kick, and Robert Lewandowski scored a pair before it was all said and done. Javi Martinez and Serge Gnabry cemented the halftime score line at 4-0.
