December 01, 2013 11:27 IST

Robben double gives Bayern another winArjen Robben scored two first-half goals to give Bundesliga leaders and titleholders Bayern Munich a predictable 2-0 win at home to bottom club Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday.

Second-placed Bayer Leverkusen recovered from Wednesday's 5-0 home defeat by Manchester United in the Champions League to beat winless Nuremberg 3-0 with Son Heung-Min scoring twice.

Third-placed Borussia Dortmund also won as two Robert Lewandowski penalties helped them beat coach Juergen Klopp's former club Mainz 05 3-1 and Hoffenheim were involved in another high-scoring game as they drew 4-4 with Werder Bremen.

Bayern, who have won 12 and draw two of their 14 games, lead on 38 points, followed by Leverkusen (34) and Dortmund (31).
