Win puts Dortmund 15 points clear at top

Borussia Dortmund are now a massive 15 points clear at the top of the German Bundesliga after a 1-0 victory over Cologne on Friday -- their 19th win from 25 games this season.

The only goal came a minute before half-time when Polish striker Robert Lewandowski chested down a long pass, before slamming the ball into the corner of the net.

The home side schould have added a second goal in the closing stages but striker Lucas Barrios fired against the crossbar.

The result leaves Juergen Klopp's side on the verge of their first league title since 2002, with just nine games still to play.

"This was probably one of the most deserved 1-0 wins of all time," Klopp told reporters. "The boys created so many chances over the 90 minutes."

Second-placed Bayer Leverkusen have a chance to close the gap when they host Wolfsburg on Saturday, while champions Bayern Munich -- who are fourth -- take on third-placed Hanover in the match of the weekend.

Meanwhile, in Italy's Serie A, Roma needed a last-minute penalty to claim a 2-1 victory at Lecce.

David Pizarro made no mistake from the spot as Roma remain sixth in the table, while Lecce are fourth bottom.
