Bayern Munich fail to seal title after Leipzig stumble

Bayern Munich fail to seal title after Leipzig stumble”

To put some context, you have to remember that Bayern were starting this matchday, the penultimate one, four points ahead of Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern Munich failed to retain their Bundesliga title on Saturday with a game to spare as Niko Kovac's side were held to a goalless draw by RB Leipzig in the Red Bull Arena.

Bayern Munich, who needed a win to make sure of a record-extending seventh consecutive league title, are on 75 points. Dortmund led 3-1 in stoppage time but faced a few nervy seconds after Dawid Kownacki made it 3-2 in the 95th minute.

It was an even more nervous affair at Dortmund, where goals from Christian Pulisic, Thomas Delaney and Mario Gotze eventually sealed a win for the title contenders.

Hitz, replacing injured Roman Buerki, also brought down Dodi Lukebakio for a second-half penalty which the forward fired wide.

Kai Havertz broke the deadlock for Leverkusen in the 31st minute before Guido Burgstaller restored parity for Schalke two minutes after the break.

Already relegated Hannover enjoyed a 3-0 victory over Freiburg as they moved away from the foot of the table on Saturday afternoon.

Monchengladbach got all their goals in the second half through Josip Drmic, an own goal from Lukas Muhl, Thorgan Hazard and Denis Zakaria.

Yet Anastasios Donis, Gonzalo Castro and Daniel Didavi were on the mark for Stuttgart to condemn Hanover and Nuremberg to the drop.

Should they somehow manage to finally clinch another German title, then we are certainly in for quite a dramatic day.

The breakthrough arrived when Delaney nodded Raphael Guerreiro's looping cross back across the face of goal and Pulisic flung himself at the ball to beat Michael Rensing with a diving header.
