The former Arsenal man tapped in from a Thomas Muller cross with a VAR check confirming that Lewandowski did not interfere with play.

But Sky in Germany has reported that the Frenchman is out of the race following a telephone discussion with Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Wednesday.

However, speaking with beIN Sports on Friday night Wenger claims he remains very much in the frame to replace Nico Kovac in the Allianz Arena hot seat.

Arsene Wenger remains in the running to take over as Bayern Munich head coach after revealing he will hold talks with the German club next week.

Former assistant Flick took over after the sacking of coach Niko Kovac last week following Bayern's 5-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt.

While the result will help Hansi Flick's hopes of staying in charge of Bayern until at least the end of the season, Lucien Favre's position at Dortmund is now beginning to look uncertain. We'll call him and clear things up. This is the true story'.

Round-up of what bruised Italian media are saying after glorious Celtic victory
Two Celtic followers have been stabbed by Lazio supporters and hospitalized forward of the teams' Europa League match. The home side took a seventh-minute lead through Ciro Immobile before pushing for more.

"He was in his auto going to the game against Olympiacos".

"We talked for four to five minutes maximum and he told me that they had assigned Flick to be the coach".

Asked whether he would also be in charge in their next game at Fortuna Duesseldorf on Nov 23 after the worldwide break, Rummenigge said: "One should assume so".

Asked about the speculation, he said: "I never refuse to talk to Bayern Munich because I know these people who lead the club for 30 years". I told him I didn't have any thoughts about it, it needs some time to have a think about it.

The emphatic victory has lifted Bayern up to third in the standings, one point adrift of leader Borussia Moenchengladbach, which can extend the advantage at home to Werder Bremen Sunday.
