Bielefeld:

Bayern Munich's title hopes suffered a setback on Sunday, when they were beaten 3-1 away from home at Arminia Bielefeld in the German Bundesliga.From the start, Bielefeld coped with the tricky conditions best before Italian midfielder Massimilian Porcello opened the scoring for the home side in the 28th minute from a free-kick. Bayern's only real chance in a stuttering first half display fell to Peruvian striker Jose Guerrero four minutes later, but his diving header from a Hasan Salihamidzic cross was blocked in fine style by home goalkeeper Mathias Hain. Doubling the leadBielefeld deservedly doubled their lead just after the hour mark. Rudiger Kauf set Delron Buckley on his way and he expertly beat Oliver Kahn at his near post. Bayern couldn't find a way through until 10 minutes from time, their Brazilian set-piece specialist Lucio producing a trademark free-kick. But in the 83rd minute Bielefeld made the game safe and ended a run of six matches without a win when Buckley took advantage of a poor header from Willy Sagnol and scored his 11th goal in the league this season. The 3-1 score also brought to an end Bayern's nine-match unbeaten run and missed out on the chance to go three points clear at the top of the table - just six points now cover the top six. (AP)
