Robert Lewandowski scored his 29th Bundesliga goal this season on Saturday as his club Bayern Munich secured a 1-1 draw at Hoffenheim.

The Poland forward netted a header at the stroke of halftime to cancel the hosts’ opener by Christoph Baumgartner in the 32nd minute.

Lewandowski’s equaliser came from a Joshua Kimmich corner, and it was enough for Bayern to take home a point from the game.

The reigning FIFA Best player of the year also had a goal ruled out ahortly after halftime, as Bayern dominated play.

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.
