The former Borussia Dortmund forward netted a brace in Bayern's 6-0 win over Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena on Saturday, in a game which saw him leapfrog Claudio Pizarro as the Bundesliga's all-time leading foreign goalscorer.
"We could have scored even more goals".
Having been told on Tuesday, along with Bayern team-mates Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels, that his Germany career is over, Mueller took out his frustration, setting up the first goal and scoring Munich's second. But the hosts kept scoring as Thomas Muller capitalized on Franck Ribery's assist before Joshua Kimmich headed the 5-0 lead in the 82nd minute.
The Ruhr valley club had earlier in the season enjoyed a nine-point advantage over the Bavarians, who were last top of the table back in September.
Christian Pulisic's introduction with just over 10 minutes remaining made the difference for Dortmund, which was pegged back after Castro whipped in a free kick for Marc Oliver Kempf to equalize with a header in the 71st. The Poland global added a late second to take his Bundesliga tally to 197 goals.
"I don't care about who is top now", said Dortmund captain Marco Reus.
Substitute Pulisic settled the Dortmund nerves in the 90th to lift his team to 57 points, level with Bayern, who went top after their 6-0 demolition of VfL Wolfsburg.
"It only matters who is top at the end and everything is still open". It might yet go right down to the wire but with Bayern now leading the table, few would bet against the champions winning what would be their seventh title in a row.
The strike was Lewandowski's 16th Bundesliga goal of the season, extending his incredible record against Wolfsburg.
Despite some dogged Stuttgart defending, Dortmund took the lead at Signal Iduna Park when Reus netted a penalty on 62 minutes.
Hertha Berlin lost to Freiburg as Vedad Ibisevic's own goal sealed the 2-1 defeat in front of home crowd.
