BAYERN MUNICH STAYED four points clear at the top of the Bundesliga helped by a late penalty miss from Alfred Finnbogason in a 1-0 victory at Augsburg on Wednesday.

Robert Lewandowski’s 22nd league goal of the season, a 13th-minute spot-kick, was enough for a win which kept the reigning champions clear of second-placed RB Leipzig, who edged out Union Berlin 1-0.

But they survived a late scare as Finnbogason could only hit the post from the spot with 14 minutes to play.
