Things almost got worse for Leverkusen a few minutes later, but Vidal nodded just wide.

Kevin Volland pulled one back for the hosts when his left-footed strike from the edge of the penalty area took two deflections off Martinez and Niklas Sule before finding its way into the net.

However, Bayern were in control throughout and that particularly pleased their veteran coach as they march on towards a sixth successive league title.

Bayern was the first to craft an opportunity as Arjen Robben led a break and picked out Ribery at the back post, but Bellarabi recovered to block the Frenchman's eventual effort.

Leverkusen picked up points in 12 straight games, helping the club move from 14th in the table to fourth. Neither of them are in the squad, " said Heynckes, before adding that German worldwide Wagner is the "first option" to replace Lewandowski in attack but far from certain to start.

Another positive for Mueller is the arrival of Germany striker Sandro Wagner from Hoffenheim, with the burly centre-forward recruited to serve as back-up to the prolific Lewandowski.

But Martinez pounced to open the scoring for Bayern off the rebound after Sven Bender had blocked Arturo Vidal's header from a corner.

The in-form Leon Bailey went close to a stunning equaliser when he struck the crossbar nine minutes after the break and Bayern soon made the most of that, as Ribery rounded off a swift break with his first Bundesliga goal of the season.

He dribbled his way through the defence then unleashed a thunderbolt of a shot which gave Leverkusen's Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno no chance.

Just when the hosts were on the front foot, Bayern doubled the scores out of the blue as Rodriguez passed into the path of Franck Ribery, who had all time and space to place the ball into the bottom near corner in the 59th minute.
