Bayern Munich failed to win for only the third time in 20 Bundesliga games this season but their draw with Bayer Leverkusen keeps them eight points above second-placed Borussia Dortmund.

Pep Guardiola brought Thomas Muller off the bench but he missed two great chances when unmarked inside the box.

Julian Brandt had a chance to win it for Leverkusen but fired wide.

Bayern ended with 10 men after midfielder Xabi Alonso was sent off in the 84th minute for two bookings.

The visitors had only one fit centre-back, with midfielder Joshua Kimmich having to play at the back, but it was a game in which defences were on top.

Guardiola's side missed the chance to go 10 points above Dortmund, who drew 0-0 at third-placed Hertha Berlin earlier in the day - a game watched by potential Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.
