Champions Bayern Munich left it late to beat relegation-threatened Eintracht Braunschweig for their first Bundesliga victory in four games.

The European champions won the title by beating Hertha Berlin on 25 March but had failed to win a league game since then.

For 75 minutes it looked like that run might be extended, until Claudio Pizarro converted Mario Gotze's pass.

Coach Pep Guardiola sent out a strong side despite the fact they visit Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg on Wednesday.

And substitute Mario Mandzukic sealed the victory with four minutes left as he converted a long ball from goalkeeper Lukas Raeder, the first keeper to assist a Bundesliga goal this season.

Second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who will face Bayern in the German Cup final next month, beat Mainz 4-2.

Their goals were scored by Milos Jojic, Bayern-bound Robert Lewandowski, Lukasz Piszczek and Marco Reus.
