BERLIN – Eight-time defending champions Bayern Munich held on to beat Cologne 2-1 in the Bundesliga on Saturday

The goals of Thomas Muller and Serge Gnabry in the first half were enough for Bayern to gain the upper hand over the goal difference of Borussia Dortmund, who beat Arminia Bielefeld 2-0

Bayern coach Hansi Flick opted to give star striker Robert Lewandowski a rest ahead of Tuesday’s visit to Salzburg in the Champions League Lewandowski had scored 10 goals in five Bundesliga games, setting the pace for the replacing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting to follow

A penalty kick gave Bayern a breakthrough in the 13th minute Gnabry’s header was inadvertently blocked by Marius Wolf’s arm and referee Frank Willenborg pointed to the spot Muller duly converted the penalty

Joshua Kimmich made the difference ahead of the break by winning the ball with a perfectly timed challenge in midfield and putting Gnabry on the right Gnabry cut inside to score his fourth goal of the season

Cologne remained competitive, however, and a late goal from Dominick Drexler set up a nervous final for the visitors

Two goals from an unexpected source – defender Mats Hummels – were enough for Dortmund at Bielefeld

Dortmund struggled, as they often do, to score the first goal The ball bounced off Hummels left thigh and in the corner of Jadon Sancho in the 53rd Hummels was more aware of his second goal, a head on the center of Marco Reus in the 71st

In addition, Eintracht Frankfurt and Werder Bremen drew 1-1, with US forward Josh Sargent scoring for Bremen
