"You cannot think about Christmas yet," Lewandowski is quoted as saying by Sport Bild.

"We have to be careful about the final [match of the year] against Dortmund. We know that we have played and lost twice here [in Munich] in the cup against Dortmund in recent years.

"We've already beaten [RB] Leipzig in the cup, and now comes Dortmund, so the two best opponents in Germany. We have to stay focused and physically give everything we have."
