Niko Kovac’s side are back at the top

Despite the win, Dortmund lost the league lead to Bayern Munich on account of the Bavarian powerhouse's 6-0 rout at home over Wolfsburg.

Lewandowski is also now the Bundesliga's top goalscorer having netted 17 league goals so far this season and gave a positive response when asked whether he could end his career with Bayern.

Dortmund who at one point had a nine-point advantage over Bayern, earned a narrow 2-1 win over VfB Stuttgart to stay level on points with the champions.

Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Mueller were all in the starting lineup of Bayern on Saturday, only days after they were dropped from the national team.

Lewandowski added a second in the latter stages on his 150th Bundesliga appearance for Bayern to continue his prolific form against Wolfsburg, taking his tally to 16 in eight games.

Christian Pulisic's introduction with just over 10 minutes remaining made the difference for Dortmund, which was pegged back after Castro whipped in a free kick for Marc Oliver Kempf to equalize with a header in the 71st.

"I don't care about who is top now", said Dortmund captain Marco Reus.

Now with nine games to go, Bayern are slight favorites, while the Black and Yellows are now the hunters, and being in that role is much more suited to them.

"Stuttgart defended really well and were organised".

The third goal came when Axel Witsel beat three defenders, played Mario Goetze into the box to set up Pulisic, who netted in stoppage time. "Overall it was a deserved win", Favre said.

Dortmund dominated for large parts of Saturday's fixture and eventually took the lead when VAR helped award them a penalty for Gonzalo Castro's foul on Jadon Sancho.
