After defeating Hertha Berlin 2-0 on Sunday, Bayern Munich returned to the top of the Bundesliga. Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry both scored goals.

In the 69th minute, Gnabry broke the deadlock with a diving header to Joshua Kimmich's cross, and 10 minutes later, Coman put the game away with another assist from Kimmich.

With four rounds remaining, it was sufficient to move Bayern one point ahead of Borussia Dortmund. Dortmund must now rely on help from Bayern's remaining rivals, Werder Bremen, Schalke, Leipzig, and Cologne, if it hopes to break the Bavarian powerhouse's 10-year rule as German champion. Bayern was held to a 1-1 draw in Bochum on Friday.

Oliver Christensen, the Hertha custodian, is to be credited for preventing a worse defeat. let that they had let up 10 goals in their previous three games, all losses, the visitors weren't anticipated to provide Thomas Tuchel's team with too many difficulties.

Hertha is still the front-runner to be relegated. It is six points away from a playoff berth for relegation and is last in the league.

As anticipated, Bayern controlled the first half but struggled to get past the tenacious defence of the visitors.

Christensen denied Gnabry the greatest opportunity, while Sadio Mané was unable to connect on a few enticing crosses from the vivacious Coman.

Bayern had 14 shots compared to Hertha's one, but many home supporters whistled at halfway because they anticipated a better result.

Ibrahim Maza, a highly regarded young player, made his Hertha debut in the 65th minute, but Bayern's breakthrough came four minutes later when another striker scored at the opposite end.

The home crowd joined the players in singing, “German champion will only be FCB (FC Bayern),” after the game.

DROUGHT ENDS WIND

Jonas Wind of Denmark scored twice as Wolfsburg defeated Mainz 3-0 to snap their 10-game Bundesliga winning streak.

Wind scored in the fifth minute to snap an 11-game goalless streak, then two minutes later, after Sebastiaan Bornauw had made it 2-0, he scored again.

The victory moved Wolfsburg up to seventh position, one point ahead of Mainz.
