The defending champions are a point ahead of Leverkusen, who face Union Berlin on Sunday. Reigning runners-up Dortmund lost 1-2 in Stuttgart and have only taken a point from their last three matches. The victory for the home team was ensured by a recovered Guirassy, who with 15 goals is the second highest scorer behind Kane.
Bayern led 2-0 at half-time thanks to Kane, but Heidenheim equalized. But substitute Guerreiro quickly sent the favorites back into the lead and five minutes from time sealed the still unbeaten team’s fifth straight win in Choupo-Moting. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer beat the 36th league opponent, equaling Lothar Matthäus and Miroslav Votava’s record.
Stuttgart could have taken the lead against Dortmund in the 11th minute, but Führich did not convert the penalty kick ordered for a foul by goalkeeper Kobel. Dortmund opened the scoring in the 36th minute by Füllkrug. Undav equalized shortly before the break. In the 67th minute, Guirassy came into the game after a two-week medical break and in the end converted the penalty, which was ordered again for a foul by the visitors’ goalkeeper.
Stuttgart has thus moved away from today’s opponent by a difference of three points and is third. Dortmund are already eight points behind leaders Bayern.
The match between Augsburg and Hoffenheim was interrupted for approximately five minutes in the 57th minute by a cannonball thrown from the visitors’ sector towards the corner flag. “I have never heard such a loud bang in a football stadium,” said veteran international referee Felix Brych. “I clearly said that if something like this happens again, we have to leave the field,” he added.
