Heynckes also scored in 11 consecutive home games for Borussia Moenchengladbach in 1972/73.

Runaway German Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich continued their relentless progress towards a sixth successive title with a 2-1 win over Schalke 04 on Saturday, extending their unbeaten run against the Gelsenkirchen side to 15 meetings.

With barely five minutes gone, Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann blocked Mueller's fierce shot, but Lewandowski was on hand to tap in his 19th league goal of the season to equal the record.

He sprinted onto a Arjen Robben pass in the area, but instead of passing inside as the defence expected, fired home from the tightest of angles past the despairing Faehrmann.

Well earned. It's good to have you back. I had the feeling that the lads really put a lot in to get into the lead, even if not everything worked.

Dortmund moved up to third, but Bayern, who have 56 points from 23 games, stayed 18 clear of second-place RB Leipzig, who have 38 - one more than Dortmund.

Dortmund needed two second half goals from new boy Michy Batshuayi and the returning Mario Götze to secure all three points, and speaking after the game Stöger praised the work ethic that his players showed in what was a "difficult match" for die Schwarzgelben, as quoted by the club's official website.

Eight months ago the 28-year-old partnered Ousmane Dembele and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front.

"We're happy we won", Stoeger said.

Ahead of this afternoon's home game against Hamburger SV, the Chelsea loanee admitted that he will copy their former striker's goal celebration.

Eintracht Frankfurt stormed up to fourth with a 4-2 thrashing of bottom side Cologne.

The hosts created their first opening midway through the first half as Batshuayi steered Andre Schurrle's cross wide of the near post, while Lukasz Piszczek had to be alert at the other end on 29 minutes with a block to deny Bobby Wood at point-blank range from Aaron Hunt's cross and the rebound was blasted over by Walace.

Dortmund leapt up to third after Bayer Leverkusen surprisingly lost 2-0 at home to Hertha Berlin to slip to fifth.
