Müller, Ulreich Lead Bayern to Win over Stuttgart in Bundesliga Action

STUTTGART, Germany – Thomas Müller and goalkeeper Sven Ulreich led league-leading Bayern Munich to a 1-0 win on Saturday over Stuttgart, a victory that widens the club’s advantage over Schalke to 11 points in the Bundesliga standings.

While Müller scored Bayern’s only goal in the 79th minute of the match at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart, Ulreich stopped a penalty from Stuttgart’s Chadrac Akolo five minutes into the second-half injury period.

Shortly before Akolo’s squandered penalty, James Rodriguez had missed a golden opportunity to double Bayern’s lead three minutes into stoppage time.

Stuttgart’s aggressive defense in the early going stymied Bayern, whose lone scoring opportunity came in the 20th minute when James set up a chance that Robert Lewandowski was unable to convert.

In the second half, Schalke net minder Ron-Robert Zieler prevented Corentin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman from scoring before conceding Müller’s late goal.

Bayern strengthened its grip on the Bundesliga top spot with the win.

The defending champions now have 41 points, 11 ahead of Schalke, which rallied to earn a 2-2 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday and is provisionally in second place.

Eintracht built a 2-0 lead thanks to a second-minute goal by Luka Jovic and a second score in the 65th minute by Sebastien Haller.

Schalke, however, fought back thanks to late goals by Breel Embolo in the 82nd minute and Naldo in second-half stoppage time.

In other Bundesliga action on Saturday, Augsburg drew 3-3 with Freiburg, while Cologne prevailed 1-0 over Wolfsburg. Werder Bremen, meanwhile, drew 2-2 against Mainz.
