Bayern Munich may have clung on by their fingertips for a goalless draw at Hertha Berlin but they retained top spot going into the German Bundesliga´s winter break.

Werder Bremen´s 5-2 win against Bayer Leverkusen allowed the northerners to pull level but Bayern´s superior goal difference allowed them to defend a once-commanding lead that has been gradually whittled down in the run-up to Christmas.

Exactly halfway through the season, Bayern have held onto the lead but coach Ottmar Hitzfeld will be perturbed at that his club has won only twice in seven Bundesliga fixtures while there have been hints of dressing room unrest.
