Borussia Dortmund's victory over Wolfsburg earlier on Saturday afternoon had put pressure on Bayern Munich going into the evening match, with the Bavarian club temporarily losing their grip on top spot of the Bundesliga.
Dortmund, buoyed by the return of Erling Haaland, had moved into the top spot with their three points, and it looked for a time as if they would head into the mammoth Klassiker meeting on December 4, with Bayern Munich being held at home by Arminia Bielefeld.
The visitors had been plucky all game, defending well as a unit and keeping the usually free-scoring German champions at bay.
With that being said, Bayern tested the opposing goal multiple times, having 11 shots on target by the time the full-time whistle was blow.
Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane were both denied inside the first 11 minutes, whilst Stefan Ortega in the Bielefeld goal had the game of his life, saving close-range headers from Muller and Alphonso Davies.
Bundesliga top-scorer, Robert Lewandowski, couldn't repeat his goalscoring feat from the midweek Champions League trip to Moscow, as he had two attempts missing the net before half-time.
It wasn't until the 71st minute of play when Leroy Sane scored the only goal of the game, firing a left footed strike curling into the roof of the net beyond Ortega.
This was yet another record-breaking moment for this Bayern Munich team, as they overtook the FC Koln team of 1977 who scored 101 goals in a calendar year, with the current Bavarian charges hitting their 102nd goal since the turn of 2021.
The result brought to an end what had been a tumultuous weekend for the Bavarian club, who had endured a difficult meeting with fans over their continued link with Qatar in sponsorship terms.
Sane's strike relaxed Julian Nagelsmann and put his team back on top of the table ahead of next Saturday's meeting with Dortmund, which promises to be a mouth-watering affair with Haaland back to full fitness.
