Bundesliga round-up: Bayern Munich winning run halted by late Augsburg equaliser
Last Updated: 25/09/18 11:55pm
Bayern Munich dropped points for the first time this season after Felix Gotze's late equaliser for Augsburg at his old club.
Bayern were cruising to a home win, which would have left them four points clear, before Gotze nodded home the equaliser four minutes from time to leave the score 1-1.
Despite the draw, Bayern stay two points clear of second-placed Werder Bremen.
With star striker Robert Lewandowski on the bench, evergreen Arjen Robben gave Bayern the lead three minutes after the break at the Allianz Arena.
When Bayern winger Serge Gnabry chested down the ball, Robben, 34, snapped up his pass and rounded the defence to smash home a goal off his left.
But when Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer dropped a corner, Dutch defender Jeffrey Gouweleeuw smashed the ball across the goal and Gotze nudged it home to stun the hosts.
Schalke, last season's runners up, remain bottom of the league after suffering their fifth straight defeat, falling 1-0 to Freiburg.
Schalke had an early goal disallowed for offside and Freiburg striker Florian Niederlechner broke the Royal Blues' hearts with a goal just after the break.
Hoffenheim, who host Pep Guardiola's Manchester City next Tuesday in the Champions League, sealed a 3-1 away win at Hannover 96 thanks to goals by new signing Joshua Brenet, Pavel Kaderabek and Ishak Belfodil.
Striker Niclas Fuellkrug scored Hanover's consolation and had the ball again in the net with ten minutes left, but the video assistant referee spotted an offside.
Earlier, Werder Bremen moved up to second with a 3-1 win at home to Hertha Berlin, who dropped to third.
Not even a superb goal by Manchester City reject Javairo Dilrosun could prevent Hertha suffering their first defeat of the season and relinquish second place.
Strikes from Martin Harnik and defender Milos Veljkovic, plus a late Max Kruse penalty, saw Bremen climb into the top two.
Bremen join Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, who host Nuremberg on Wednesday, as the only unbeaten teams in Germany's top flight.
