Bundesliga result: Bayern struggle without Neuer – champions blow two-goal lead

Bayern Munich 2 – 2 Wolfsburg

Bayern Munich blew a two-goal lead at home as they were held by Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga.

Wolfsburg, in new coach Martin Schmidt’s second game in charge, survived a couple of early corners, but frustrated their hosts for much of the first half.

After 10 goals in their three games following their shock loss to Hoffenheim, a Bayern side featuring Robben, Thomas Muller, Franck Ribery and Lewandowski struggled to continue that free-scoring form.

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring with a penalty, his 11th goal in nine games this season, and Arjen Robben made it 2-0 with a deflected strike.

Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich – deputy for the injured Manuel Neuer – fumbled Maxi Arnold’s 25-yard free-kick into the net.

Daniel Didavi headed in a late equaliser as Bayern stayed second.
