Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski believes that arch-rivals Bayern Munich are going to hit a poor run of form at some point during the season, reports Goal.com.
The Pole also remains confident that Borussia can catch the Bavarians in the Bundesliga.
Currently, Pep Guardiola's team is sitting atop of the Bundesliga, four points ahead of Bayer Leverkusen, while BVB are seven points adrift from Bayern and sitting in third.
Lewandowski, 25, told Bild: "It's still too early right now to hand out the title." ahead of Borussia's match with Saarbrucken on Tuesday for the DFB-Pokal.
"It may still be that Bayern have a little crisis as sometimes happens ( to the top teams). I have not lost hope at all, in any case. But we must see to it that we win our games."
Lewandowski is expected to join Bayern Munich next summer, when his contract runs out, but he seems determined to leave on the high and currently sits on top of the Bundesliga's goalscoring charts with 11 goals.
"Of course I would like to finish as a top-scorer, but the important thing is that we have success as a team," the Pole added.
Lewandowski also had a look at upcoming Champions League clash against Olympique de Marseille on December 11.
"After the game with Napoli, we hold the advantage. Our progress is back in our hands.
"But it would be fatal for us to take Marseille lightly. Although the have taken zero points in the group, in most games they have only just been defeated. This again will be a tough tie."
A win against Marseille will guarantee Dortmund a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
