Berlin: Bayern turned the tides against Mainz to recapture the lead in Bundesliga while Schalke and Dortmund wrapped up narrow wins in the ninth round.
Arjen Robben's equaliser against Mainz initiated Bayern's 4-1 comeback win at the outsold Allianz Arena Saturday. Mainz were able to hold the pace until the 50th minute but were unable to fight off the fifth loss of the season, reports Xinhua.
The courageous visitors kept the German giants at distance. They were able to surprise Bayern with the opener just before the break. Shawn Parker shocked the hosts when he rounded goalkeeper Manuel Neuer following a failed clearance attempt by Jerome Boateng.
