Dortmund added three after the interval with goals from Reus, Mario Gotze and Paco Alcacer with a penalty.

In the day's other game, Hertha Berlin was held 0-0 at home by bottom side Hannover, which ended an eight-game losing streak.

On Saturday, Bayern beat Werder Bremen 1-0.

With four rounds left, Bayern leads with 70 points, Dortmund has 69 and Leipzig is third with 61.
