RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund missed the chance to mount title pressure on reigning champions Bayern Munich, after being held in their respective games.

Julian Nagelsmann’s Leipzig took the lead five minutes into the game thanks to a Nordi Mukiele strike, but the lead was canceled out after Wout Weghorst headed home to equalise for the hosts in the 22nd minute.

Wolfsburg then went ahead after Renato Steffen’s shot deflected off Willi Orban to put Wolfsburg in front in the 35th minute.Nine minutes after the break, Will made amends as he slotted in a rebound from an Amadou Haidara effort.

The draw leaves RB Leipzig just a point behind League toppers Bayern Munich but that margin could be increased if the latter secures victory tomorrow.

Elsewhere, Dortmund were in search of their fourth win under new manager Edin Terzic but were left frustrated after a 1-1 draw at home.

Thomas Meunier was instrumental as he equalised for Dortmund after going down by a goal, but 16-year-old striker Youssoufa Moukoko also deserves some credit for keeping the ball alive in the area and providing the crucial pass.

Meunier was then fouled in the penalty area by Hack, giving Reus an opportunity to score from the spot but the Dortmund captain sent his kick outside of the left post.

In the other fixtures, Werder Bremen recorded their first home win since October with late goals in a 2-0 win at home to Augsburg.
