Runaway leaders Bayern made it 45 Bundesliga games unbeaten as they saw off Nuremberg in the Bavarian derby.

The hosts went close through Josip Drmic and Daniel Ginczek but moments later Mario Mandzukic put Bayern ahead with an aerial side-footed effort from eight yards out.

Arjen Robben hit the bar with a free-kick and Thomas Muller headed the rebound off the woodwork.

Philipp Lahm sealed it with his first goal since Euro 2012.

Can they remember what a league defeat is like?

Pep Guardiola

Boss Pep Guardiola has not lost a league match since 21 April 2012, when Barcelona were beaten 2-1 by Real Madrid.

Bayern's last Bundesliga reverse was in October 2012, a 2-1 home defeat by Bayer Leverkusen.

The captain had not scored a goal for his club in over three years and he almost squandered the opportunity to end the drought by firing at keeper Raphael Schafer, who fumbled the ball into the net.

The victory took reigning champions Bayern back to 13 points clear of second-placed Bayer Leverkusen, with 14 games remaining.

Bayern were without winger Franck Ribery, who had buttock surgery on Thursday.

They will discover on Monday how long he could be sidelined for, with their Champions League tie against Arsenal coming up in 11 days.

Nuremberg, who dropped into the relegation play-off spot with the defeat, were historically one of Germany's most successful teams.

They won nine league titles, the last of which came in 1968 - a time when Bayern had only won one of their 23 titles.
