Created on 08 Dec., 2012 8:19 PM GMT

Bayern Munich extended their lead at the top of the Bundesliga, while Wolfsburg stunned Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Goals from Thomas Mueller and Mario Gomez handed Bayern a 2-0 away victory over lowly Augsburg, who slumped to their 10th loss of the season.

Bayern are 11 points clear of second-placed Bayer Leverkusen, who have a game in hand to play against Hannover on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Wolfsburg came from behind before accounting for champions Dortmund 3-2 away from home.

Dortmund opened the scoring through Marco Reus in the sixth minute and seemed in control of the match until Marcel Schmelzer was sent off for a deliberate handball in the area on 35 minutes.

Brazilian midfielder Diego netted the resulting penalty before countryman Naldo put Wolfsburg in front five minutes later.

Dortmund midfielder Jakub Blaszczykowski restored parity from the spot in the 61st minute, but the undermanned hosts were unable to salvage a point as Wolfsburg forward Bas Dost found the net with 17 minutes to go.

Meanwhile, goals from Sebastian Polter and Markus Feulner clinched a 2-0 victory for Nuremberg at home to Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Stuttgart climbed to fifth on the table with a 3-1 win over visiting Schalke, while Daniel Caligiuri's 15th-minute goal guided Freiburg to a 1-0 home win against Greuther Fuerth.
