As Bayern Munich stayed four points clear, Robert Lewandowski scored his 22nd Bundesliga goal of the season, aided by a late penalty miss from Alfred Finnbogason in Wednesday’s 1-0 victory at Augsburg.

The 13th-minute penalty from Lewandowski was necessary for a victory that held the reigning champions away from second-placed RB Leipzig, who, thanks to an Emil Forsberg goal, edged out Union Berlin 1-0.

In the Bavarian derby, however, Bayern survived a late scare as Finnbogason could only reach the post from the spot with 14 minutes to go.

We have won the last two of our games now, and that’s a sign for our rivals, “We’ve now won our last two games and that’s a sign to our rivals,”

Polish striker Lewandowski has scored 10 more goals this term in the Bundesliga than his closest competitor, Dortmund’s Erling Braut Haaland.

However, after treatment for a leg knock, he was substituted halfway through the second half, but Bayern coach Hansi Flick said it was only as a precaution.

With 15 first-half shots, Bayern battered the hosts’ goal, while Augsburg did not bother the European champions with a single attempt in the first 45 minutes.

After the break, it was a different story as Augsburg wasted a string of chances, including Finnbogason’s miss after handling Benjamin Pavard in the field.

The Augsburg clean sheet saw Bayern goalkeeper Neuer tie the 196 Bundesliga record of Oliver Kahn.

Earlier, after falling to a 2-1 home loss to fellow strugglers Cologne, Schalke remained rooted to the foot of the table, despite the fifth goal for American teenager Matthew Hoppe in three matches.

Cologne defender Rafael Czichos gave the visitors a first-half advantage, but before the hour mark, Hoppe equalized.

As Jan Thielmann shot past Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Faehrmann in injury time, Cologne stole a late victory.
