Hans Flick made only one change from the win over Borussia Dortmund as Lucas Hernandez replaced Jerome Boateng at the heart of the Bayern defence.

It didn't take the Bavarians too long to get the breakthrough as Benjamin Pavard's shot took a deflection off Jorgensen and sailed into the back of the net after 15 minutes.

The lead was doubled in the 29th minute and Pavard was not to be denied this time around after nodding home a cross from Joshua Kimmich for his fifth goal of the season.

It was another dominant half from Flick's charges, who bagged a third goal two minutes before the halftime break through Robert Lewandowski after a well-worked team move.

Bayern continued the dominance after the restart as Lewandowski completed his brace with a simple finish from close-range after some good work by Serge Gnabry.

The fifth goal arrived on 52 minutes, with Alphonso Davies getting on the score-sheet by slotting home from close range after skipping past a few players.

With the hosts comfortably leading, Flick opted for a double switch as Ivan Perisic and Alvaro Odriozola replaced Kinglsey Coman and Pavard for the final 30 minutes.

Unfortunately for Dusseldorf it was one-way traffic for most of the contact, as Bayern shot-stopper Manuel Neuer barely had a save to make throughout the encounter.

Bayern saw out the remaining stages of the second half with relative ease as they edged closer to another Bundesliga title by moving 10 points clear of Borussia Dortmund, who are in action Sunday.
