EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS BAYERN Munich remained top of the Bundesliga despite being held on Saturday to a 1-1 home draw by Werder Bremen, who were only denied a shock win by a string of excellent saves from Manuel Neuer.
But Kingsley Coman drew it level, nodding in at the far post in the 62nd.
Bayern had won its last 19 games against Bremen since a 0-0 draw in September 2010, and coach Hansi Flick began with Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Joshua Kimmich on the bench, while the 17-year-old Jamal Musiala made his first start.
Germany goalkeeper Neuer produced great stops to twice deny USA forward Josh Sargent as Bremen earned their first point at Bayern for a decade.
Any team that stopped Bayern Munich's victory at home would need to defend well and Werder definitely did, with Marco Friedel picking the three at the back.
The hosts' rhythm was no doubt damaged by the early loss of Theo Hernandez to injury, a blow that saw Leon Goretzka introduced and both Javi Martinez and David Alaba change position.
Sargent held off Martínez's challenge and pulled the ball back for Eggestein to break the deadlock just before halftime.
Milot Rashica missed a good chance to make it 2-0 after the break, before Bayern finally responded.
Bayern substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting fired over when it appeared easier to score, before Bremen had a chance to grab a late victor through Sargent. Neuer got the better of their one-on-one. Bayer Leverkusen are provisionally second on 18 after their 2-1 win over Arminia Bielefeld.
Hradecky slipped as he attempted to kick out Daley Sinkgraven's back pass.
Fortunately for the Finnish goalkeeper, Aleksandar Dragovic scored late as unbeaten Leverkusen prevailed 2-1.
A Daniel Caligiuri equaliser two minutes from time gave 10-man Augsburg a 1-1 draw at Borussia Moenchengladbach.
A day after his 16th birthday, Youssoufa Moukoko could become the youngest player in Bundesliga history if he plays for Borussia Dortmund at Hertha Berlin.
