BERLIN -- Mario Mandzukic scored against his former side as Bayern Munich maintained its Bundesliga title charge with a 2-0 win at Wolfsburg on Friday.

Mandzukic claimed his league-leading 15th goal of the season in the 36th minute with a fine overhead kick after Bastian Schweinsteiger played back Toni Kroos' free kick.

With Wolfsburg chasing an equalizer that never looked likely, Arjen Robben came off the bench to seal the victory in stoppage time with the injury-plagued winger's first goal of the season.

Wolfsburg fought hard but ultimately failed to trouble Manuel Neuer until the 78th minute, when the Germany goalkeeper stopped Diego's dangerous free-kick.

Bayern, which plays Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday, moves 18 points clear of defending champion Borussia Dortmund, which hosts Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
