Bayern held to give Leipzig faint hope

Share

Bundesliga leaders Bayern finished a awful week where they were knocked from the Champions League by Real Madrid having a unsatisfactory performance, the stalemate giving RB Leipzig the opportunity to cut the opening on top to six points by defeating Schalke on Sunday.

However, Mainz retook the lead five minutes before half-time as Brosinski converted from 12 yards.

The point leaves Mainz in 13th place, just a single point above the relegation place off position. Prior to that, it had been a poor performance from double-chasing Bayern ahead of Wednesday's German Cup semi-final at home to Borussia Dortmund.

"However, the most important thing is that we got a point and the fact that my first goal came against a great side like Bayern at a fantastic stadium like the Allianz Arena".

Bayern extended its advantage to nine points with four games remaining but Leipzig, which plays Schalke on Sunday, can still catch Carlo Ancelotti's defending champions.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich have now gone four games without a win after being held by struggling Mainz.

The hosts appeared to have a UEFA Champions League hangover when Mainz took the lead in the third minute through Bojan Krkic, his first goal since joining on loan from Stoke City.

Bayern's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is sidelined with a foot fracture for the rest of the season and his replacement Sven Ulreich could not stop Daniel Brosinski's penalty on 41 minutes to put Mainz 2-1 up at the break.

Mainz were immediately punished as Bayern countered and Franck Ribery set up Robben to fire home left-footed.
