No one on the web has swagger like the corner

Wolfsburg breathed life into the Bundesliga's title race with a shock 4-1 hammering of leaders Bayern Munich, who suffered their heaviest German league defeat for six years.Buy cheap fifa15 coins on FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Coins.

Pep Guardiola's Bayern also lost their first league game of the season as second-placed Wolfsburg trimmed their lead to eight points. Bayern leaked as many goals in Wolfsburg as in the entire first half of the season as the home side ruthlessly exploited Bayern's numerous errors.

Netherlands striker Bas Dost gave the hosts a deserved 2-0 lead at the break as his thunderbolt volley crashed off the post just before the half-time whistle following an earlier goal. Belgium international Kevin de Bruyne made sure of the three points with two second-half goals while defender Juan Bernat scored Bayern's consolation goal.

For the first time in three years, Bayern found themselves 2-0 down at half-time on their way to their heaviest league defeat since losing 5-1 at Wolfsburg in April 2009 -- when Wolves won the Bundesliga title. There were emotional scenes before kick-off at the Volkswagen Arena with a minute's applause for Belgium U-21 international Junior Malanda, who was killed in a car crash earlier this month.

The hosts went ahead on their first venture into the Bayern half. Daniel Caligiuri's long-range cross from the sidelines was squared by De Bruyne and Dost drove his shot past the diving Manuel Neuer with four minutes on the clock. Wolfsburg's Maximillion Arnold tried to knock Xabi Alonso off the ball from a free-kick on 43 minutes and both players were booked.

The hosts doubled their lead when Bayern's Robert Lewandowski headed a Wolfsburg free-kick into space. Dost latched onto the loose ball and volleyed home in spectacular fashion from the edge of the area. Wolves went 3-0 up just after the break when Arnold's pass put De Bruyne in behind the Bayern defence and he rifled his shot home.

Bernat gave Bayern some hope when he stabbed his shot past Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio with 35 minutes left. The Swiss shot-stopper protected Wolfsburg's lead when he palmed Arjen Robben's shot over the bar with 70 minutes gone as the hosts held on for a deserved victory over Bayern, who are bidding for a third straight league title.
