Werder Bremen 1-2 Bayern Munich

Arjen Robben
Bayern have won their past 13 Bundesliga games against Bremen - the longest winning streak against a team in the league's history

Bayern Munich remain three points clear at the top of the Bundesliga after beating Werder Bremen.

Arjen Robben opened the scoring for the champions when he drilled home after good work on the wing from Franck Ribery.

David Alaba made it 2-0 in first-half injury time when he curled a free-kick in.

Max Kruse pulled one back when he shook off Alaba before finishing, but the 15th-placed hosts could not equalise.

Bayern remain three points above RB Leipzig, who beat Hoffenheim 2-1.
