Kingsley Coman scored one goal and set up another as Bayern Munich came from a goal behind to beat VfB Stuttgart 3-1 on Saturday and defend its top spot in the Bundesliga.
Robert Lewandowski drilled in his 12th league goal of the season on the stroke of halftime from a Coman assist to turn the game around after Tanguy Coulibaly had put the host in front in the 20th minute and Coman had levelled.
It was the seventh consecutive game in which Bayern conceded a goal, and Philipp Foerster should have doubled Stuttgart's lead when he missed the target from three metres out.
But Coman then hit the home side on the break, confirming his fine current form when he scored from a tight angle to level the tie in the 38th.
Stuttgart kept carving out chances in the second half and Manuel Neuer did his best to keep the visitors in front. It was not until Douglas Costa's low shot in the 87th made it 3-1 that the Bavarians was able to breathe more easily.
Bayern, who faces Atletico Madrid in the Champions League next week, is on 22 points with RB Leipzig second on 20 after beating Arminia Bielefeld 2-1.
