Bayern, Leverkusen exploit Dortmund draw

Borussia Dortmund's draw at 1. FC Nürnberg was exploited by FC Bayern München and Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who put four past FC Schalke 04 and 1. FSV Mainz 05 respectively.

FC Bayern München ended FC Schalke 04's winning run with an emphatic 4-0 victory in Gelsenkirchen to move level on points with early Bundesliga frontrunners Borussia Dortmund, whose disappointing week ended with a 1-1 draw at 1. FC Nürnberg.

Midweek victors both in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern were a class apart at Schalke. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mario Mandžukić headed two goals inside a minute, midway through the first period, to send the defending champions on their way. Franck Ribéry turned in a third, before substitute Claudio Pizarro joined the party late on. 

The win left Dortmund's leading the nascent table by goal difference, as Jürgen Klopp's side let slip a lead given to them by Marcel Schmelzer's fantastic free-kick. Per Nilsson crashed in an equaliser from close range.

A point further back are Bayer 04 Leverkusen, who overpowered 1. FSV Mainz 05 4-1. On his debut, Robbie Kruse scored either side of a Lars Bender effort in a one-way first half. Stefan Kiessling's fifth goal of the campaign arrived before Yunus Malli's late response for Mainz.

Raffael starred on Friday night, scoring twice in a 4-1 win as VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach inflicted a fifth defeat in six for TSV Eintracht Braunschweig.
