Bundesliga: Bayer Leverkusen defeat Bayern Munich to go five points clear



Bayer Leverkusen have opened a five-point gap at the top of the Bundesliga, following a 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on Saturday.

The victory represents a big blow to Bayern Munich’s bid to defend their title.

Alejandro Grimaldo scored the second goal for Leverkusen, who remain the only unbeaten team in Europe.

Grimaldo made it 2-0 shortly after half-time after Bayern loanee, Josip Stanisic’s first-half opener.

Substitute Jeremie Frimpong added a third from range in stoppage-time with Manuel Neuer out of his goal.

Bayer Leverkusen continue their Bundesliga title challenge next Saturday as they travel to Heidenheim.

Bayern Munich travel to Bochum on February 18.
