Berlin (AP) — Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich draws Werder Bremen 1-1 with nine wins …
Berlin (AP) — Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich drew 1-1 with Werder Bremen after winning nine games in all tournaments that ended Saturday.
Maximilian Eggestein fired Bremen before the break, but visitors have been unable to maintain their first victory over Bavaria since the 5-2 victory in Munich in September 2008.
Leon Goretzka was tied by Kingsley Coman in the 62nd minute.
Bayern have won the last 19 games against Bremen since the 0-0 draw in September 2010. Hans-Flick put Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich on the bench, and 17-year-old Jamal Musiara made his first start.
Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who scored six goals in the German Nations League after losing to Spain on Tuesday, denied Josh Sargent and blocked Ludwig Augustinsson from a rebound on the 16th.
Bayern defender Lucas Hernandez had to leave shortly afterwards with what looked like a back injury. Goretzka arrived, Javi Martinez returned to defense, and David Alaba moved in place of Hernandez on the left side.
Sargent postponed Martinez’s challenge and just before half-time Egestein pulled the ball back to break the deadlock.
Milot Rashica missed the chance to be 2-0 after the break and before Bayern finally reacted.
After Douglas Costa hit the crossbar and Coman and Robert Lewandowski tried their luck, Goretzka crossed and Coman caught up with the near post.
Bayern substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Bremen was fired when the scoring seemed easy before he had a chance to win the second half through Sargent. Neuer made their one-on-one better.
Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Lucas Hradeky can’t forget that Arminia Bielefeld achieved an own goal without aiming for the goal.
Hradecko slipped as he tried to kick out the backpass of Daily Sinkflaben. He only brushed the ball as Bielefeld continued to reach his goal of catching up with the tie early in the second half.
Fortunately for the Finnish goalkeeper, Alexander Dragovich scored late as the undefeated Leverkusen won 2-1.
Tenman’s Augsburg also drew 1-1 to Borussia Mönchengladbach.
Schalke’s unwinning streak extended to 24 games after losing to Wolfsburg 2-0, with Hoffenheim drawing 3-3 to Stuttgart.
Leipzig was held 1-1 in Eintracht Frankfurt, giving Borussia Dortmund a chance to move up to second place with a win in Hertha Berlin in the second half of the game.
