Bundesliga: Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg each battle to 1-1 draws

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Bayern Munich remained winless in the second half of the Bundesliga season after holding on with 10 men to earn a 1-1 draw with Schalke on Tuesday.

The defending champion retained its eight-point lead over Wolfsburg, which clinched a late 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt. Wolfsburg beat Bayern 4-1 on Friday but needed a late equalizer from Kevin de Bruyne to escape with a point.

Bayern lost Jerome Boateng to a red card in the 17th minute and was lucky not to fall behind as goalkeeper Manuel Neuer easily caught a poorly-taken penalty from Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Arjen Robben put Bayern ahead in the 67th but Benedikt Hoewedes equalized five minutes later.

Also, Borussia Moenchengladbach beat Freiburg 1-0 and Hannover and Mainz drew 1-1.
