Robert Lewandowski has scored six Bundesliga goals against Wolfsburg this season

Bayern Munich moved a step closer to their fourth consecutive Bundesliga title as they beat Wolfsburg.

Kingsley Coman steered Robert Lewandowski's deflected shot home midway through the second half.

And Lewandowski - who scored five goals in nine minutes in the reverse fixture in September - scored eight minutes later to seal the win.

Bayern are now 11 points above second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who play Hoffenheim on Sunday.

Elsewhere, former Bayern striker Claudio Pizarro scored a late equaliser as Werder Bremen drew 2-2 with relegation rivals Darmstadt.

The 37-year-old Peruvian's 183rd Bundesliga goal makes him the fifth top scorer in the league's history.

Bottom club Hannover earned a crucial 2-1 win at Stuttgart, with Christian Schulz scoring an 83rd-minute winner.

Saturday afternoon's other game saw Hamburg draw 1-1 with Ingolstadt.
