Thomas Muller had two goals ruled out for offside.
Bayern lead the German topflight by 10 points from second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who have two games in hand.
It was Bayern’s second 1-1 league draw in a row – after taking a point against Bayer Leverkusen last weekend – and came even though the champions enjoyed 62% possession and had 22 shots.
Bayern could still have won it, but Serge Gnabry failed to convert gis shot as it hit the post 22 minutes from time.
