Bayern Munich 2-2 Mainz 05

Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich face Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup semi-final on Tuesday

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

The German champions - who were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid this week - are nine points clear of RB Leipzig, who have five games left to play.

Bojan scored an early opener for Mainz, his first goal since his loan move from Stoke, after some sloppy defending, before Arjen Robben smashed home a leveller.

Daniel Brosinski put Mainz ahead again with a penalty, but Thiago equalised after being picked out by Robben.

Borussia Dortmund beat Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2 to move up to third in the table.

Marco Reus gave Dortmund the lead with a penalty but Lars Stindl and Marcel Schmelzer's own goal put Gladbach ahead.

Substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised, before Raphael Guerreiro's 87th-minute winner.

Elsewhere, Max Kruse scored four goals as Werder Bremen came from behind to beat second-from-bottom Ingolstadt 4-2.

Augsburg remain in the relegation play-off place after blowing a 1-0 lead with 12 minutes to go to lose 3-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bottom club Darmstadt's relegation will not be confirmed for another week at least after they beat Hamburg 2-1, their second win in a row.

Wolfsburg are only one point above the play-off place after losing 1-0 to Hertha Berlin.
