Bayer end Bayern's record win streak

Bayer Leverkusen earned a shock 2-1 win at Bayern Munich on Sunday to claim their first win at the Bavarians for 23 years as the Bundesliga leaders’ record winning streak came to an abrupt end.

Having set a German league record last weekend with their eighth straight win since the start of the season, Bayern were left stunned as defender Jerome Boateng scored a late own goal to give Leverkusen the three points.

Despite the defeat, Bayern still enjoy a four-point lead at the top of the table, while Leverkusen are fifth.
