Bundesliga Title Race: Dortmund Reclaim Top Spot

Borussia Dortmund reclaimed top spot in the Bundesliga after netting late to secure victory against Wolfsburg, after Bayern Munich dropped points at Freiburg.

Freiburg 1-1 Bayern Munich
 
Bayern Munich were unable to create some distance at the top of the table after failing to secure maximum points at Freiburg.
 
The Bavarians entered the encounter without Manuel Neuer and David Alaba, who were both ruled out through injury.
 
Bayern did not get off to the best of starts as Freiburg took the lead inside three minutes through Lucas Holer's fourth goal of the season.
 
Parity was eventually restored on 22 minutes as Leon Goretzka picked out Robert Lewandowski who fired home the equaliser.
 
Niko Kovac's men threw everything in search of a winning goal in the second half, but Freiburg were drilled and held on for a point as Bayern drop to second spot.
 
Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Wolfsburg
 
Borussia Dortmund took full advantage of Bayern Munich's slip up and secured a late win over Wolfsburg on home soil.
 
Dortmund had to take to the field without their talisman, Marco Reus who missed the clash due to the birth of his child.
 
Despite Reus' absence, Dortmund still managed to threaten in the first half as the likes of Dan-Axel Zagadou and Paco Alcacer sqaundered chances inside the opening 20 minutes.
 
The visitors managed to carve out a sight at goal of their own when Wout Weghorst stung the fingertips of Roman Burki with a powerful effort from distance.
 
Dortmund were forced into a change shortly after the break when Abdou Diallo was forced to make way for Morocco international Achraf Hakimi.
 
The hosts left it late to secure the goals, as former FC Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer fired home in the first minute of second-half stoppage time, before he completed his brace three minutes later.
