Bayern's Bundesliga rivals Leipzig, Leverkusen both losePTI | Berlin | Updated: 23-01-2021 22:37 IST | Created: 23-01-2021 22:33 IST
Bayern visits last-place Schalke on Sunday.
American midfielder Tyler Adams got Leipzig off to a great start with a goal in the 15th minute, but Moussa Niakhaté scored twice for Mainz, either side of Marcel Halstenberg's 30th-minute strike for the visitors.
Midfielder Ridle Baku's 35th-minute header was enough for Wolfsburg.
Leverkusen maintained its pressure but the defence took a break and left Baku to head in Renato Steffen's cross against the run of play.
Augsburg goalkeeper Rafa Gikiewicz saved a penalty to secure a 2-1 win over his former team Union Berlin. Gikiewicz denied Marcus Ingvartsen in the 56th, then produced a fine save to also thwart Taiwo Awoniyi.
Florian Niederlechner, who conceded the spot-kick, had already scored twice for the home side.
Freiburg beat Stuttgart 2-1.
Hertha Berlin hosted fellow struggler Werder Bremen later Saturday.
