Robert Lewandowski netted twice as Bayern Munich returned to the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday with a 5-0 win over Wolfsburg after RB Leipzig lost their unbeaten record.
Leipzig’s shock 1-0 defeat at bottom side Ingolstadt, who finished with ten men, ended their three-week stint as leaders after Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern cut the three-point gap and regained top spot on goal difference with both teams on 33 points.
Second-placed RB had their 13-match unbeaten run ended, a record for a club at the start of their first Bundesliga season, as coach Ralph Hasenhuettl was stunned on his return to Ingolstadt, who he left after last season.
Bayern will host Leipzig at Munich’s Allianz Arena on December 21.
