Two of the most prolific strikers in the German Bundesliga were both on the scoresheet over the weekend for their teams.

Bayern Munich talisman Robert Lewandowski grabbed a brace as his side thrashed Eintracht Frankfurt 3-0 in a league game in Munich on Saturday afternoon.

On the same day, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted Borussia Dortmund's consolation goal as they lost 2-1 to Hertha Berlin in Berlin.

As a result Gabonese Aubameyang remains at the top of the league's scoring charts with 22 goals, while Polish Lewandowski is just a goal behind him.

"I'm always happy when I score goals and we win," Lewandowski told Bundesliga.com.

"The most important thing for me is that we’re in first place.

"What you achieve personally is not important as what you can manage as a team," he added.

"I don’t think about the goal race and whether or not I have a goal more or less.
"The team’s more important at the moment- We did well today and won another game."

Aubameyang's Dortmund will host Ingolstadt on Friday, while Lewandowski and his Bayern team-mates are away to Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday.
