Video Highlights: The Bundesliga Is Back

Bayern Munich missed scores of chances, including a first-half penalty, before allowing Wolfsburg to snatch a late equaliser and claim a 1-1 draw that left the champions 16 points off the top. "We are all very disappointed. It should have been 3-0 at halftime for us but instead we made mistakes. You can't win if you make mistakes like that," said Bayern coach Louis van Gaal. Bayern are fifth on 30 points, way behind leaders Borussia Dortmund on 46.

Meanwhile, second-placed Mainz lost ground on runaway Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, as they went down 1-0 at struggling Stuttgart.

Borussia Dortmund stretched their lead to 13 points with a 3-1 triumph at Leverkusen on Friday. Dortmund struck three goals in six minutes to ease past Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 to extend their lead to 13 points as the Bundesliga restarted after a winter break.

A sixth league goal of the season by Ruud van Nistelrooy, gave Hamburg a 1-0 victory at Schalke that lifted them to seventh with 27 points.

Werder Bremen climbed to 12th after returning to winning ways by beating Hoffenheim 2-1 with a last-gasp goal from Torsten Frings.

St. Pauli twice relinquished the lead to draw 2-2 at home to sixth-placed Freiburg, Marius Ebbers and substitute Gerald Asamoah seeing their goals cancelled out by a Papiss Cisse's brace.

Bottom club Borussia Moenchengladbach grabbed a 1-0 win at Nuremberg to close the gap to two points on second from bottom Cologne.
