BERLIN — Bastian Schweinsteiger marked his injury comeback by setting up Bayern Munich's final goal as the defending champions stretched their Bundesliga lead with a 4-0 win over Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Mario Goetze opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, Arjen Robben crossed for Robert Lewandowski to score in the 40th, and then sealed the result himself with a delicate chip in the 83rd.

Schweinsteiger, who hadn't played since the World Cup final, set up Sebastian Rode to score in the 87th, less than 10 minutes after coming on to a huge ovation.

Borussia Dortmund let a two-goal lead slip to draw 2-2 at Paderborn, Schalke defeated Wolfsburg 3-2, and Eintracht Frankfurt came from behind to beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 3-1 away.

Bayer Leverkusen won 3-1 at Hannover and Freiburg drew 2-2 in Mainz.
