Bayern edge Paderborn 3-2 to go top, Leipzig slip up
Wasteful Bayern Munich were made to sweat for a 3-2 win at Paderborn that sent them top of the Bundesliga on Saturday after RB Leipzig went down 3-1 at home to Schalke 04 for their first loss of the season.
The Bavarians, who squandered a bagful of chances, hit the woodwork and conceded two goals in the second half, took the lead through Serge Gnabry in the 15th minute.
He set up Philippe Coutinho 10 minutes after the restart for their second but Kai Proeger's powerful volley cut the deficit in the 68th.
Bayern are top on 14 points, one ahead of Leipzig who were joined on 13 by Schalke in third after a fourth straight win.
