Bayern 4 Wolfsburg 2

FCB seal points with thrilling comeback

Bayern staged a stunning comeback from two goals down to beat Wolfsburg 4-2 and go fourth in the Bundesliga table with nine games played.

The 69,000 full house at the Allianz Arena saw the strangely lethargic men in red concede two goals in as many minutes to Grafite and Edin Dzeko after barely more than half-an-hour, but Franck Ribery netted before the break and Mark van Bommel equalised ten minutes into the second half, first goals of the season for both Bayern men.

The champions completed a stirring turnaround when sub Tim Borowski blasted his side into the lead just after the hour, and although there were chances at both ends in an increasingly absorbing battle, Bastian Schweinsteiger wrapped up the points with a tap-in ten minutes from time.

Two changes for FCB

Jürgen Klinsmann made two enforced changes to the side which beat Fiorentina in midweek. Christian Lell and Lukas Podolski took over at full-back and striker respectively from injury victims Philipp Lahm and Luca Toni, allowing the champions to continue with their winning 4-4-2 formation.
