Philippe Coutinho scored his first goal from open play to help Bayern Munich clinch a 3-2 win at Paderborn as they knocked RB Leipzig off the top of the Bundesliga.
Bayern took advantage of Leipzig’s 3-0 home defeat to Schalke on Saturday to leapfrog their rivals and go a point clear at the top.
Serge Gnabry opened the scoring for Bayern with an angled finish at the back post before Coutinho tapped home from close range just after half-time.
Goals from Kai Proger and Jamilu Collins gave Paderborn hope, but Robert Lewandowski’s strike that sandwiched those efforts ultimately proved decisive.
