Bayern wins, chases sixth Bundesliga title

Monday, February 05, 2018

BERLIN - Schalke 04 squandered a chance to go second in the Bundesliga when they conceded twice late in the game and lost 2-1 at home to lowly Werder Bremen on Saturday on a nightmare afternoon for the goalkeepers who were at fault for all three goals.

Bayern Munich, chasing a sixth successive title, duly won 2-0 at Mainz 05 with first-half goals from Franck Ribery and James Rodriguez to extend their lead at the top to 18 points. It was their tenth successive win in all competitions.

Mario Gomez scored his first goal since his return to VfB Stuttgart to give them a 1-1 draw at VfL Wolfsburg -- the club he left in December -- and Ademola Lookman scored on his debut to give RB Leipzig a late 1-0 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Lookman, 20, signed on loan from Everton on Wednesday, came on in the 78th minute and scored the winner 11 minutes later.

Bayern have 53 points from 21 games, 18 ahead of second-placed Bayer Leverkusen, who were held 0-0 at Freiburg, and Leipzig. Borussia Dortmund are fourth on 34 after their 3-2 win at Cologne on Friday, and ahead of Schalke on goal difference.
