RB Leipzig spurned the chance to move top of the Bundesliga after a 2-2 draw at Wolfsburg.

Julian Nagelsmann's men were out to recover from last weekend's loss to Borussia Dortmund and went ahead in the fifth minute through Nordi Mukiele.

Wolfsburg frontman Wout Weghorst headed in an equaliser in the 22nd minute and Renato Steffen's deflected shot put the home side in front before half-time.

Defender Willi Orban, though, levelled things up again in the 54th minute, slotting in a rebound after Amadou Haidara's effort had been saved.

Bayern Munich remain a point clear ahead of their home match against Freiburg on Sunday.

Borussia Dortmund missed the chance to close up ground after they were held to a 1-1 home draw by relegation-battlers Mainz.

Jude Bellingham struck the woodwork during the first half, but it was Mainz who broke the deadlock through a fine individual effort from midfielder Levin Oztunali just before the hour.

Thomas Meunier equalised in the 73rd minute, scoring a first goal for Dortmund, and then Marco Reus spurned the chance to complete the comeback as he dragged a penalty wide.

Danny Latza almost hit a late winner for Mainz, but his shot struck the post and rolled along the goal-line.

Silas Wamangituka's stoppage-time penalty helped Stuttgart secure a 2-2 home draw against Borussia Monchengladbach.

Lars Stindl had the Foals – who beat Bayern Munich last time out – in front from the spot in the 35th minute, but Stuttgart forward Nicolas Gonzalez equalised just before the hour with a fine diving header.

Denis Zakaria, though, swiftly made it 2-1 in the 61st before there was late drama after VAR confirmed a penalty for Ramy Bensebaini's push on Sasa Kalajdzic – and Wamangituka stepped up to grab a point with what was the final kick of the match.

Werder Bremen scored twice in the final six minutes to beat Augsburg 2-0, with Theo Gebre Selassie (84) and Felix Agu (87) completing the late show at the Weserstadion.

Elsewhere, relegation-battlers Cologne were held to a 0-0 home draw by Hertha Berlin, while it also finished goalless between fellow strugglers Hoffenheim and Arminia Bielefeld.

Relegation-battlers Nimes climbed off the foot of the table with a shock 2-1 win at Marseille.

The home side, beaten by PSG in the midweek Trophee des Champions, missed a first-half penalty when Florian Thauvin shot wide.

Niclas Eliasson turned in the opening goal at the near post 10 minutes after the restart, and then knocked in a second from close range in the 58th minute.

Dario Benedetto pulled a goal back with five minutes left, but there was to be no late drama as Les Crocodiles held on for a first win in nine games.

In the Copa del Rey, Segunda Division promotion hopefuls Almeria thumped LaLiga strugglers Alaves 5-0.

Umar Sadiq scored twice as Alaves saw midfielder Tomas Pina sent off in the 35th minute.

Sevilla won 1-0 at Leganes with an extra-time goal from Lucas Ocampos, while in Saturday's late game Rayo Vallecano beat Elche 2-0.

Real Valladolid needed extra-time to win 4-1 at Pena Deportiva, where Roque Mesa scored twice.

Girona beat Cadiz 2-0, with a second-half double from Valery Fernandez.

Levante needed penalties to get past Fuenlabrada, progressing 4-2 from the shoot-out after the tie ended 1-1 at Estadio Fernando Torres.
