BERLIN (AP) — Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich produced another uninspired performance in beating Werder Bremen 2-1, while Leipzig kept pace by defeating previously unbeaten Hoffenheim on Saturday.

EINDHOVEN, Netherlands (AP) — Robert Lewandowski scored both his team's goals Tuesday and hit the woodwork three times as Bayern Munich beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1 to secure a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.
