Jupp Heynckes hails Bayern Munich's focus after hammering Hamburg

Tolisso in a lot of pain – Bayern boss Heynckes

Tolisso in a lot of pain – Bayern boss Heynckes

Bayern won 6-0 at the Allianz Arena to draw a stage nearer to the Bundesliga title, yet Tolisso must be offed the pitch only 15 minutes after his presentation as a half-time substitute.

Lewandowski notched two as Bayern raced 3-0 inside 19 minutes on the way, surely, to a record-extending sixth title in a row.

Commenting on this development, Qasim Elegbede, the Brand and Marketing Director at StarTimes said that "We are happy to have been able to impact the lives of over 300 young boys positively. The performance and result were very important for us", said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, whose side goes to Besiktas for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in midweek, leading 5-0 from the first leg.

A general view of the Allianz Arena is seen during the Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen at the Allianz Arena on March 22, 2008 in Munich, Germany.

"We have to keep going in the Bundesliga, no matter if we're 20, 10 or five points ahead".

Jerome Boateng, who was making his 250th appearance for Bayern, instigated the move to set up the home side's third goal in their next meaningful attack when a long ball to David Alaba was cushioned for Lewandowski inside the area to slot home his second.

Hamburg held out for just eight minutes before Franck Ribery rounded Christian Mathenia to open the scoring.

Bayern gained momentum and pressed Hamburg into defence before Lewandowski headed home Joshua Kimmich's cross to double the lead in the 12th minute. The Polish worldwide struck again in the 19th minute, after a pinpoint long ball from Jerome Boateng had opened up the Hamburg defence.

With 142 goals in competitive games, the Poland striker is Bayern's most prolific foreign player.

He overtakes the Brazilian Giovane Elber, who played for the club from 1997 to 2003.

Hamburg, the only ever-present team in the Bundesliga's 55-year history, are seven points adrift of Mainz who are in the relegation play-off spot.

And coach Hollerbach admitted their hopes of securing an unlikely result were gone after just 18 minutes. "There is no shame in losing in Munich, but I am not happy with the way we lost".
