Bayern Munich's charge for an 11th consecutive Bundesliga title was dealt a heavy blow as resurgent challengers Bayer Leverkusen put the Bavarians to the sword at the BayArena.

A nightmare Bundesliga outing for Thomas Tuchel and his boys saw them stumble to a shock 3-0 defeat to the Black and Reds. It was one of the best performances of Bayer Leverkusen so far this season. The hosts effectively lorded the game over their star-studded and dominated proceedings from the start.

Bayern Munich struggled to flow with their usual possessive and attacking style of play and could only manage just a shot on target in all 8 attempts. Bayer Leverkusen covered swaths of defensive and attacking distance throughout the game and were on the ascendancy from the start.

Bayern Munich loanee to Bayer Leverkusen Stanisic was on target for the hosts as he puts his parent club to the sword with an opening goal in the 18th minute.

Upamecano allowed a cross to slip through his legs to an unmarked and onrushing Stanisic, who comfortably fired it into the back of the net pass Neuer.

Grimaldo doubled the lead for the hosts after a counter attack before another late counter saw Jeremy Frimpong make it 3-0 for the Black and Reds.

It ended 3-0 for the high-flying Xabi Alonso's Leverkusen, who are aiming for their first-ever Bundesliga title. Bayern Munich needed at least a draw to stay put in the race for the title, hence they could literally be written off the race as they have gone down five points below Leverkusen.
