Bayern Munich won 2-1 in Cologne on Saturday with goals from Thomas Mueller and Serge Gnabry sending their side back to the top of the Bundesliga as coach Hansi Flick rested top scorer Robert Lewandowski

The Bavarians, who are in action in the Champions League and will also face Borussia Dortmund in the league next week, are 15 points behind Dortmund on goal difference

RB Leipzig, with 13 points, can reclaim first place on his trip to Borussia Moenchengladbach later on Saturday

He was awarded a penalty in the 13th minute when Gnabry directed the ball to Marius Wolf’s arm In Lewandowski’s absence, Mueller stepped up to score his fourth goal of the season with a well-placed kick

Gnabry then climbed onto the scoresheet himself with a steep descent on the wing and a powerful left-footed effort in the first half

Cologne barely ventured forward after the break until Dominick Drexler’s deflection reduced the deficit in the 82nd minute

Defender Mats Hummels scored twice in the second half to help Borussia Dortmund beat Arminia Bielefeld 2-0 on Saturday and tie the points with Bayern Munich

It was the first time since 2010 that the 31-year-old center-back had scored two goals in a league game

With 73% possession in the first half, Dortmund, without injured striker Erling Haaland, had the upper hand but carved out some clear chances

It was only fitting that he scored with a scrappy goal from Hummels, who pushed the ball over the line with his knee at the far post in the 53rd minute

The 2014 World Cup winner took the lead in his second from a Marco Reus cross in the 71st before being pulled out with an injury 15 minutes later
