Lewy strikes, Muller drought continues as Bayern Munich beat Mainz

Robert Lewandowski scored early and late as Bayern beat Mainz.
Robert Lewandowski helped turn the match around as Bayern Munich recovered to beat Mainz.

Bayern Munich moved back to the top of the Bundesliga with an impressive 3-1 win in Mainz on Friday, recovering from the shock of falling behind to Jhon Cordoba's breakaway goal after only four minutes.

Robert Lewandowski equalised four minutes later before Arjen Robben nodded Bayern ahead on 21 minutes, before the Poland striker put the result beyond doubt in the final minute with a sublime free kick.

Robben could return to Bayern XI in place of goal-shy Muller for Mainz trip

Bayern Munich won a narrow match against Leverkusen, but Carlo Ancelotti says gaining points makes up for their poor play.

Goal-shy Thomas Muller could drop to the bench to allow a fully fit Arjen Robben to return for Bayern Munich's trip to mid-table Mainz on Friday.

Muller has become "Doubting Thomas," drained of confidence and a shadow of his former self. He certainly didn't enjoy the cold November rain, and he's in the midst of his longest-ever Bundesliga goal drought, which now stands at 837 minutes over seven months. Of course, he has found the net for Germany and notched a couple of times in the Champions League,...

Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller sings 'Silent Night,' now officially Christmas

Jerome Boateng backs Thomas Muller to rediscover his form, calling him an important player for Bayern Munich.

With the big day now just around the corner, Bayern Munich came together on Monday evening to usher in the festive period with a Christmas party.

Of course, it was left to Thomas Muller to provide the entertainment, with the happy-go-lucky striker treating the rest of the Bayern family to a haunting rendition of one of his favourite carols.

Indeed, Muller was hauled up on stage and duly began warbling his way through "Silent Night" -- or, more specifically, the German version, "Stille Nacht."


Uli Hoeness' return will bring friction, energy back to listless Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich won a narrow match against Leverkusen, but Carlo Ancelotti says gaining points makes up for their poor play.

MUNICH -- Ten momentous days for Bayern Munich have brought two important defeats (away to Rostov in the Champions League and Borussia Dortmund in the league), one fortunate win (at home to Bayer Leverkusen), the return of president Uli Hoeness, and above all, a sense of impending, drastic change. Things will be very different in the coming months.

The main, if not sole, reason for upheaval is the shift in the centre of gravity that Hoeness' comeback will facilitate after serving half of a 42-month...

Hummels saves blunt Bayern attack from blushes against Leverkusen

Bayern Munich pulled within three points of Bundesliga leaders Leipzig with a 2-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen.
Bayern Munich won a narrow match against Leverkusen, but Carlo Ancelotti says gaining points makes up for their poor play.

Bayern Munich bounced back from two straight defeats to edge Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 courtesy of goals from Thiago and Mats Hummels, sandwiched between Turkey midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu's equaliser.


Winning ugly is the hallmark of champions and this nervy victory definitely falls into that category. Bayern broke a two game losing run and remained unbeaten at home, slotting nicely into Leipzig's slipstream by virtue of Hummels' debut goal for the club.

After a bad week, Boateng and Bayern Munich look to turn the corner

Despite growing frustrations with Bayern's recent results, Carlo Ancelotti stresses improving the team aspect of the squad.
The ESPN FC crew analyse how Bayern Munich have changed under Carlo Ancelotti.

It's fair to say Jerome Boateng has enjoyed better weeks in football but, for inspiration, the Bayern Munich defender can use one of his mate's Jay-Z's biggest hits to emerge from his current dip in form. 

"Dirt Off Your Shoulder" was the answer of Boateng's buddy to any "negative" situation. You know how it goes: Had a bad game Jerome? Brush your shoulders off. Slammed by the club CEO? Brush your shoulders off. 

Boateng, Bayern's rock at the back and normally so steadfast and secure,...
