Borussia Dortmund's saw off Bayern Munich on Saturday to put them in control of the Bundesliga, but Lucien Favre said the champions cannot be written off.
Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre insisted the Bundesliga title race was still wide open after his side overcame Bayern Munich 3-2 in a thrilling Der Klassiker.
Marco Reus twice cancelled out goals from Robert Lewandowski at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday before Paco Alcácer scored a 73rd-minute winner for Dortmund.
While Dortmund are still only four points clear at the top – with Borussia Monchengladbach second – they pushed seven ahead of Bayern.
But Favre refused to rule out Bayern and said the Bundesliga title race was still well and truly alive.

"We're on top of the table in the Bundesliga and Gladbach are second," he told a news conference. 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]."
