The shock defeat left Bayern coach Hansi Flick insisting the European champions "must do better" having also thrown away a two-goal lead in last Friday's 3-2 league loss at Moenchengaldbach.

Germany worldwide Gnabry sat out last weekend's loss to Borussia Monchengladbach with a shin problem but played 90 minutes in the shock penalty shoot-out loss to Holstein Kiel in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday.

Adding that Bayern's remarkable treble-winning efforts of last season were "not normal", Flick said: "I did expect us to experience a bit of a slump a little earlier but my team showed incredible mentality and we made it to the top of the table before the winter break".

With a game in hand, Lewandowski has broken Gerd Muller's record of 20 goals in 17 matches for the first half of a German league season set in 1968/69. Shortly after, Freiburg won a corner and substitute Nils Petersen scored with his first touch of the game at the far post with a diving header. His Bundesliga record for goals after being subbed on now stands at 28.

Eight Injured When NYC Bus Goes over Railing, Dangles from Overpass
A bus in New York City which careened off a road in the Bronx neighborhood of New York is left dangling from an overpass. As of 11 a.m. on Friday, January 15th, the bus was still hanging off of the overpass, Newsday reported .

Gnabry hobbled off injured himself on half an hour, and Sane replaced him, but Bayern retained their energy and creativity, despite a mid-game drop-off that saw Petersen exploit a continued weakness at set-plays for the league leaders. "He proved today that he is always good for an assist or a goal".

The win, however, lifted them to 36 points, four ahead of RB Leipzig who drew 2-2 with VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday, and seven clear of Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund in third and fourth places. They're scoring a lot of goals, ' Flick said.

But it would be in vain: Thomas Muller, ever-reliable for the champions, profited from a Leroy Sane knockdown off a Kingsley Coman cross, and the experienced attacking midfielder fired the Bavarians back into the lead, and more pertinently, to the three points.

Lewandowksi scored 34 times in the league last season, six shy of Muller's Bundesliga record of 40 (1971-72), but the Poland star now looks well on course to challenge that tally.
