Bayern beats Mainz 2-0 for 18-point Bundesliga lead

Bayern beats Mainz 2-0 for 18-point Bundesliga lead”

The French winger was mobbed by teammates in celebration.

Bayern's win at Mainz was much more straightforward as Ribery drove home from the edge of the area in the 33rd minute.

Jupp Heynckes' men gained momentum and doubled the lead moments later as James controlled Corentin Tolisso's cross with the chest to unleash a hammer from seven meters into the top right corner in the 44th minute. "But Mainz fought well and put us under pressure at times after the break, and we were too careless in attack", said Heynckes, who again before the game ruled out extending his contract beyond the end of the season.

It would get worse for Schalke in stoppage time, as Zlatko Junuzovic stabbed a loose ball past Faehrmann to claim a dramatic and invaluable victory for relegation-threatened Bremen.

Schalke 04 went ahead after 24 minutes when Werder Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka allowed a harmless-looking shot from Yevhen Konoplyanka to slip through his hands and into the net. Pavlenka let the ball slip through his fingers.

Bayern Munich reaped their eighth consecutive win in the football league after beating Mainz 2-0 meanwhile Zlatko Junuzovic's 2-1 victor helped Bremen turn the tides against Schalke in the 21st round of the Bundesliga.

One minute later, Ludwig Augustinsson curled a weak Bremen free kick over the wall, Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann failed to hold the ball and Max Kruse scored amid a goalmouth scramble.

Schalke suffered a setback after the restart as Matija Nastasic booked his second yellow card to receive his marching orders in the 78th minute.

Ademola Lookman scored on his debut to give RB Leipzig a late 1-0 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Lars Stindl nearly equalized in a heated finale but Leipzig held on to go third, behind Leverkusen on goal difference.

In the lower half of the table, Mario Gomez scored against his former club to rescue a point for VfB Stuttgart, as they welcomed new coach Tayfun Korkut with a 1-1 draw in Wolfsburg.

Wolfsburg had to settle for their 12th draw of the season despite going ahead in the 24th minute through Divock Origi who curled a superb finish wide of Ron-Robert Zieler after Stuttgart lost possession in midfield.

In Saturday's other game, Hoffenheim extended their winless run to five matches after throwing away a 1-0 lead to draw at Hertha Berlin.
