BERLIN (AP) -- Bayer Leverkusen beat Bayern Munich 2-0 with two late goals Saturday to deal the visitors a serious blow to their Bundesliga title hopes.

Stefan Kiessling put the home side ahead in the 79th minute and Karim Bellarabi put the result beyond doubt in the last minute with his first ever goal for Leverkusen.

Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund was scheduled to host Mainz later Saturday, when the defending champion could open a seven-point gap in the standings with a seventh consecutive league win.

Elsewhere, Hertha Berlin ended its 12-game winless run with a 1-0 victory at home over Werder Bremen.

Stuttgart romped to a 4-0 win at Hamburger SV, Kaiserslautern and Wolfsburg drew 0-0 and relegation-threatened Augsburg drew 2-2 at Hannover.
