Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp feels that Bayern Munich's financial strength and squad depth makes it hard for any other German side to compete with them.
Jupp Heynckes's side trounced Kaiserlautern on Wednesday night in the DFB Cup despite making eight changes to his starting eleven.
Klopp highlighted that even reigning champion Dortmund is not as spoiled for choice as the Bavarians currently are.
"We all do not have the opportunity to change eight players like Bayern Munich just did in the DFB Pokal and still dominate the opponents," he told reporters.
"In this point, Bayern Munich are a giant step ahead of us. They also have more opportunities, we have to bite a bit more, but until now this is working fine. We dont want to change anything. This is our philosophy, to be successful with the team we have."
Dortmund currently finds itself in fourth place in the Bundesliga, nine points off league leader Bayern Munich.
