Bundesliga Review: Bayern Stretch Lead At The Summit With Easy Mainz Win

German Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich continue to be the dominant force in the league after their latest win over relegation fighters Mainz extended the Bavarian giants’ lead at the top of the table to 18 points.

Frank Ribery and James Rodriguez were on target in the first half to give Bayern a 2-0 away win over their opponents.

Bayer Leverkusen are the nearest challengers to Bayern but they lost further grounds on Matchday 21 with a disappointing goalless draw at Freiburg.

RB Leipzig move up three places on the league table to 3rd spot after a late winner from on-loan Everton striker Ademola Lookman gave his side a 1-0 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach.
