Champions Bayern Munich won 2-1 at Cologne on Saturday with goals from Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry returning them to the Bundesliga summit as coach Hansi Flick rested top scorer Robert Lewandowski.
They earned a 13th-minute penalty when Gnabry headed the ball onto Marius Wolf’s arm.
In Lewandowski’s absence Mueller stepped up to score his fourth goal of the season with a well-placed spot kick.
Gnabry then got onto the scoresheet himself with a strong run down the wing and a powerful left-footed effort in first-half stoppage time.
The hosts did score with Dominick Drexler’s deflection to cut the deficit in the 82nd minute but couldn’t challenge for an equaliser.
