It also saw Pep Guardiola's men hold a 13-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table with a record of 17 wins and two draws in 19 games.

And for Dortmund chief Watzke, Bayern Munich are destroying German football and reducing it to the competitiveness level of the Scottish game.


He told Die Welt: "At this moment there is no league other than the Bundesliga that is dominated so much by one club.

"We are not on terms with Spain, we have Scottish conditions.

"Bayern want to destroy us, we will never be a danger to them.

"They are taking our players. When Bayern offer to double the salary of players, we have no chance."
