Late goals were the order of the day on Matchday 17's radio coverage, as the champions Bayern needed an Arjen Robben strike to help them to a 2-1 win against 1. FSV Mainz 05 at the Coface Arena in the weekend opener.
BVB's blushes spared
Hannover 96 followed the champions' lead in the weekend's curtain-closer, as two goals in the last ten minutes brought them a valuable point in a thrilling 2-2 draw with SC Freiburg, but kept Christian Streich's side bottom over the winter break.
One place above Freiburg in 17th are Dortmund, whose disastrous 2-1 defeat to SV Werder Bremen on Saturday afternoon ensured that for the first time in 30 years, BVB are in the automatic relegation places over the winter break.
