Bayern Munich geared up for a rampaging Barcelona visit with a 2-2 drab draw against Stuttgart at home, their third in the last three games in Bundesliga.
Mathys Tel put the heavily rotated hosts in front in the 36th minute from an Alphonso Davies cutback, becoming the youngest player to score a Bundesliga goal for Bayern at 17 years and 136 days old.
Sttutgart had their first goal chalked off for a foul on Joshua Kimmich before Chris Fuhrich netted the equaliser from close range in the 57th minute only for Bayern to retake the lead minutes later through Jamal Musiala.
The hosts seemed to have done enough for a win only for Matthias de Light to concede a penalty in the dying stages with Serhou Guirassy beating Manuel Neuer to make sure the points were shared.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side still tops the chart ahead of Hoffenheim due to goal difference with both on 12 points from six games this season.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund was steamrolled 3-0 by RB Leipzig as Marco Rose came back to haunt the side who sacked him in the summer.
Willi Orban, Dominik Szoboszlai and Amadou Haidara got on the scoresheet as Dortmund slumped to their second defeat of the young season.
Things may only get worse for them as they next face Manchester City in the Champions League.
