Lucien Favre has refused to rule Bayern Munich out of the title race despite Borussia Dortmund side sitting seven points ahead of them. The Dortmund chief was delighted as his side twice came from behind in Saturday’s Der Klassiker, with Marco Reus’ brace cancelling out Robert Lewandowki’s double for the visitors at Signa Iduna Park, before Paco Alcacer snatched all three points with a 73rd-minute winner.

Dortmund lead Borussia Monchengladbach by four points after 11 games, while Bayern are down in fifth after three defeats this season.
However, Favre is well aware that the quality in the Allianz Arena outfit’s squad could see the reigning champions go on a sustained winning run. “We’re on top of the table in the Bundesliga and Gladbach are second,” he told a news conference after the 3-2 win. “Who is number three again? Bayern. It’s very close.
“There is [RB] Leipzig, Gladbach and of course Bayern Munich, [especially] when they play like they did [against Dortmund].”
