MANCHESTER, England (AP) — After dominating the first legs of their Champions League semifinals, it's no surprise to see Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund leading the way in The Associated Press global soccer poll.

Bayern beat Dortmund to be voted the top team for the fifth straight week, with its 4-0 win over Barcelona impressing the AP's panel.

Dortmund had the player of the week though, with Robert Lewandowski coming out on top after his four-goal display in the 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid. Three more players from Juergen Klopp's side also made the top 10.

Cedric Rouquette, of Eurosport in France, says the Poland striker's performance will be "one that he'll tell his grandchildren about."
