As Bayern Munich came from behind to defeat Wolfsburg 2-1 and sustain the pressure on Bayer Leverkusen, Robert Lewandowski scored his 250th Bundesliga goal.

On Wednesday, Maximilian Philipp put Wolfsburg ahead at the Allianz Arena with a clinical finish after Leroy Sane’s mistake.

However, Lewandowski went in to cross the landmark just before the break and then added a decisive second early in the second half with a controlled finish.

So far this season, visitors Wolfsburg were unbeaten, but saw that streak ended as Bayern endured a late onslaught to stay a point behind leaders Leverkusen, Cologne’s 4-0 champions.

As Sane tried to manipulate the box rather than clear his lines, Wolfsburg took the lead, allowing Kevin Mbabu to cross for Philipp, who hooked the ball into the net.

Just past the post, Josip Brekalo soon whistled a shot that eventually sparked Bayern into life as Lewandowski saw a close-range effort held out by Maxence Lacroix’s superb last-ditch block before Serge Gnabry headed over from a good spot.

After 29 minutes, when Philipp’s volley was deflected into the side-netting, Wolfsburg held a hazard of their own and almost had a spectacular second.
