Bayern tune up for Real with victory at Hanover

– Sancho shines –

Later Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus inspired Borussia Dortmund to a 4-0 romp at home to Bayer Leverkusen.

Even with striker Michy Batshuayi sidelined by an ankle, the pair shone in front of goal.

Sancho, 28, a former Manchester City winger, leapt for joy after becoming the youngest Englishman to score in the Bundesliga when he hit the bottom corner with 13 minutes gone.

Reus had a goal disallowed and a penalty saved before grabbing the second, moments after hitting the bar, from a superb pass from World Cup winner Mario Goetze.

Sancho set up Maximillian Philipp to tap home Dortmund’s third on 63 minutes.

The English teenager then supplied a cross for Reus to head home his second on 79 minutes to cap a superb display.

The result means Dortmund consolidate third place and stay three points ahead of Leverkusen.

Ten-man RB Leipzig crashed to a 5-2 home defeat by Hoffenheim in a key clash for the Champions League places next season.

– Forsberg sees red –

Swedish international Emil Forsberg was sent off for a foul on Florian Grillitsch just after the break with Hoffenheim already 3-0 up.

Mark Uth, Serge Gnabry and Pavel Kaderabek all scored as Leipzig’s defence buckled in the opening 45 minutes.
