Bayern Munich struggled to a 1-0 win over cross-town rivals TSV 1860 Munich on Saturday, remaining in fourth place, six points behind VfB Stuttgart who extended their unbeaten record to 13 matches with their 10th win

Stuttgart scored a 3-1 victory over Hanover 96, and Werder Bremen rose to second ahead of Bayer Leverkusen with a 3-1 triumph over VfL Bochum. Leverkusen and fifth-placed Borussia Dortmund drew 2-2.

Four days before Bayern face Celtic in the Champions League in Glasgow, Bayern edged eighth-placed 1860 Munich with a 34th-minute goal from Netherlands striker Roy Makaay, his seventh of the season, from the champions' only first-half shot on target.

It took an impressive save by goalkeeper Oliver Kahn late in the match from a Benjamin Lauth shot to prevent 1860 from earning the draw.
