After a midweek 2-1 win over Dynamo Kyiv, Bayern Munich took another narrow win as they returned to Bundesliga action against Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday.
Leroy Sane’s attack in the 71st minute was the only difference between the Bundesliga leaders and 17th place Bielefeld, as Bayern seemed once again to be stuck in second gear.
Thomas Müller set up Sane, who gave the home side the lead with a beautiful shot from just outside the box, but the goalscorer was immediately sent off for Serge Gnabry.
The win saw Julian Nagelsmann’s side reach for the top of the table as they were one point ahead of Dortmund, while Bielefeld was sentenced to remain in the regulation spots.
