Bayern held to draw, Dortmund seizes Bundesliga lead

BERLIN — Paco Alcacer scored twice in injury time for Borussia Dortmund to reclaim the Bundesliga lead with a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg while Bayern Munich was held in Freiburg to 1-1 on Saturday.

Robert Lewandowski, who scored Bayern’s equalizer after Freiburg shocked the visitors by taking a third-minute lead, missed a great injury-time chance and Leon Goretzka struck the post for Bayern.

It was the end of Bayern’s six-game winning run in the league, and it allowed Dortmund to seize the lead by two points ahead of the sides’ potentially league-deciding clash in Munich next weekend.

Nuremberg rekindled hopes of escaping relegation by beating Augsburg 3-0 at home to end its 20-game run without a win.

Borussia Moenchengladbach is in danger of losing its hold on fourth place and the last qualification spot for the Champions League after losing the derby with Fortuna Duesseldorf 3-1. The visitors were rocked by three early goals, all set up by Benito Raman in a 10-minute spell.

Max Kruse scored twice to help Werder Bremen overcome visiting Mainz 3-1.

Leipzig was hosting Hertha Berlin for the late game.
