Fresh from setting a UEFA Champions League record with their tenth consecutive win on Wednesday, Bayern went ahead against the division's bottom team inside the second minute. Robben headed in after his initial shot had been deflected onto a post by goalkeeper Daniel Davari, and the Dutch international secured the hosts' sixth consecutive Bundesliga success with a left-footed strike on the half-hour.
Second-placed Leverkusen made sure to keep pace with the frontrunners as they dispatched 1. FC Nürnberg 3-0, Son Heung-Min registering either side of a goal for Stefan Kiessling. As for Dortmund, three points behind the Werkself, they prevailed 3-1 at 1. FSV Mainz 05 to halt a run of two Bundesliga losses, Robert Lewandowski scoring twice from the penalty spot.
Elsewhere, Philipp Bargfrede secured a point in added time for SV Werder Bremen in a rollercoaster 4-4 draw at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, the hosts letting slip 2-0 and 4-2 leads. The game between Hertha BSC Berlin and FC Augsburg finished goalless, meanwhile, and FC Schalke 04 climbed up to fifth by seeing off VfB Stuttgart 3-0 in the late kick-off. On Friday, VfL Wolfsburg drew 1-1 with Hamburger SV.
