Bayern returns to top of Bundesliga with 3-1 win in Mainz

BERLIN (AP) It was far from convincing but Bayern Munich did enough to return to the top of the Bundesliga on goal difference with a 3-1 win at Mainz on Friday.

Robert Lewandowski scored two goals against his favorite Bundesliga opponent with Arjen Robben grabbing the other as Bayern joined promoted Leipzig on 30 points. The defending champions are three goals better off before Leipzig's game at home against Schalke on Saturday.

"I'll be relatively relaxed watching the game," Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said. "I mean it's up to Bayern. If we keep delivering then we've every chance of being Bundesliga champion."
