Dortmund and Leverkusen end 2013 on a low

FC Bayern München received an early Christmas gift as Bayer 04 Leverkusen lost at Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund came unstuck at home against Hertha BSC Berlin.

Ahead of their FIFA Club World Cup final appearance, leaders FC Bayern München received an early Christmas present from their main Bundesliga rivals as Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund both lost.

Second-placed Leverkusen went down to 1-0 at SV Werder Bremen, Santiago García scoring the only goal on 74 minutes, while Dortmund lost a third successive home game, 2-1 against Hertha BSC Berlin.

When Sebastian Kehl picked out Marco Reus for his eighth goal of the season, Jürgen Klopp's side looked to be on to a winner, but Adrian Ramos and Sami Allagui struck before the break for the visitors, and Dortmund failed to make the most of their chances after the break.

Ten-man Hamburger SV went down 3-2 at home against 1. FSV Mainz 05, while, at the bottom of the table, SC Freiburg earned a 2-1 victory against Hannover 96, TSV Eintracht Braunschweig secured only their third win of the season – 1-0 at home against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim – and 1. FC Nürnberg drew 0-0 with FC Schalke 04.
