German champions Bayern Munich missed out on the chance to go top in the league after they lost a two-goal lead to play a 2-2 draw with visitors VFL Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.
Robert Lewandowski gave the home side the lead from the spot in the 33rd minute to make it 11 goals in 9 games this season before flying Dutch winger Arjen Robben added a second goal from a deflected strike two minutes from the break.
Wolfsburg improved after the interval and eventually found a route back into the contest in the former of stand-in Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich who fumbled Maximiliano Arnold’s 25-yard freekick into the net. Daniel Didavi then equalised for the away team to give the former league champions a priceless point.
The point takes VFL Wolfsburg from 13th to 11th with 6 points while Bayern Munich stay in 2nd spot with 13 points thus handing leaders Borussia Dortmund the chance to go three points clear with a victory over Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday evening.
