Bundesliga Review: Bayern and Dortmund held to goalless draws

Bayern Munich were left to rue Thomas Muller's profligacy as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Bayer Leverkusen.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich were left to settle for a 0-0 draw at Bayer Leverkusen as Thomas Muller spurned two second-half chances.

Muller, brought on as a substitute for Arjen Robben, volleyed over after Kingsley Coman had set him up and then wasted the good work of Douglas Costa by firing wide.

Xabi Alonso was sent off six minutes from time on a frustrating day for Bayern, who remain eight points clear at the top as Borussia Dortmund were also held to a goalless draw.

A solid defensive performance from third-placed Hertha Berlin ensured the spoils were shared at the Olympiastadion as the league's leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was held in check.

Fourth-placed Schalke gained ground on Hertha with a 3-0 win over Wolfsburg, goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Johannes Geis and Alessandro Schopf sealing the points.

Stuttgart are now five points clear of the relegation play-off place following a thrilling 4-2 victory at Eintracht Frankfurt, which marked their fourth straight league win.

Christian Gentner and Daniel Didavi put Stuttgart 2-0 up in the first half before Alexander Meier pulled one back seven minutes after the restart.

Didavi was then sent off for a second bookable offence after Georg Niedermeier had restored Stuttgart's two-goal lead, which was turned into a three-goal advantage by Filip Kostic.

Kostic converted from the penalty spot following Carlos Zambrano's foul on Artem Kravets, which saw the Peruvian shown a second yellow card, with Szabolcs Huszti's late goal nothing more than a consolation.

Rock-bottom Hannover suffered a sixth consecutive league loss as they went down 1-0 at home to Mainz thanks to Jairo Samperio's 24th-minute effort.

Elsewhere, Moritz Hartmann's penalty five minutes from time sealed a 2-1 win over Augsburg for Ingolstadt.

I’m Bryan Roland by name, i want to use this medium to alert all loan seekers to be very careful because there are scammers everywhere.Few months ago I was financially strained, and due to my desperation I was scammed by several online lenders. I had almost lost hope until a friend of mine referred me to a very reliable lender called Mr Roy Smith ( A God fearing man) who lend me a loan of $45,000 under 72 working hours without any stress. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my shock I was given the loan, If you are in need of any kind of loan just contact him now via: barclaysloanservice247@yahoo.com, I‘m using this medium to alert all loan seekers because of the hell I passed through in the hands of those fraudulent lenders.

Thanks you Barclays Loan service for your help.
