Bayer Leverkusen 0-0 Bayern Munich

Tin Jedvaj is sent off
Bayer Leverkusen held on for the final 31 minutes despite being down to 10 men

Bayern Munich's lead at the top of the Bundesliga is down to eight points after a draw with Bayer Leverkusen.

Bayern - without suspended Robert Lewandowski - dominated but failed to take a chance against a side who had Tin Jedvaj sent off for two bookings.

David Alaba and Arturo Vidal had efforts cleared off the line, Kingsley Coman had a shot saved and Philipp Lahm missed from close range late on.

Bayern named a full-strength team despite facing Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Carlo Ancelotti's side trail 2-1 from the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final in Munich.

Second-placed RB Leipzig guaranteed a top-four finish thanks to a 4-0 win over Freiburg, securing at least the place in Champions League qualifying given to the fourth-placed finisher in the Bundesliga.

"Now the main aim is, of course, to reach the Champions League," said coach Ralph Hasenhuettl. "We will try to defend second place with all our might."

However, the club may have to wait until June to find out if they can enter the tournament, with Uefa rules prohibiting two clubs controlled by the same organisation being in the competition. Red Bull Salzburg are 15 points clear at the top of the Austrian league.

In the Bundesliga's game of the day, Hoffenheim beat Borussia Monchengladbach 5-3, with Adam Szalai scoring twice.

Borussia Dortmund beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 in the first home game since an attack on the team's bus before their Champions League game with Monaco.

The players held up the jersey of Marc Bartra, who broke his wrist in the incident and was released from hospital earlier in the day.

Wolfsburg boosted their chances of staying up with a 3-0 win over relegation rivals Ingolstadt.

Struggling Augsburg - who remain in the relegation play-off position - beat Cologne 2-1, although ended up with nine men after late red cards for Koo Ja-cheol and Alfred Finnbogason.

Mainz, who are also in relegation danger, beat Hertha Berlin 1-0.
