Kiessling puts Bayer Leverkusen back on top

Germany striker Steffan Kiessling sent Bayer Leverkusen back to the top of the Bundesliga on Sunday with a first-half equaliser which sealed a 1-1 draw at Bayern Munich

The single point allows Leverkusen to regain top spot from temporary leaders Werder Bremen who hammered Freiburg 6-0 on Saturday, while Bayern is now seventh in the table.

"If we had had more confidence in ourselves, we could have played to win," said a disappointed Kiessling. "In the second half, we were too focused on defending and we didn't produce as much up front as we had done in the first-half. It is not easy to play against (Bayern defenders Daniel) Van Buyten and (Martin) Demichelis, but I think I did well."

Kiessling made his first appearance for Germany in nine months in last Wednesday's 2-2 draw with the Ivory Coast.

His goal against Bayern Munich was his third in as many league games.

Bayern drew its last three league games and coach Louis van Gaal is under increasing pressure as the winter break approaches.

Was so nice on Sunday to watch with you together the match at the same time, even we are for the moment in different parts of the world. Really enjoyed sharing through our messages our thoughts on the match. Really reminded me of watching soccer at FCC on our engagement day. Lovely memories! ILYSM IMYSM
