(CNN) -- Bayern Munich's record winning start to the Bundesliga season came to an abrupt end Sunday as they were stunned 2-1 at home by Bayer Leverkusen.
Going into the match at the Allianz Arena, Bayern had racked up eight straight wins, but a late own goal by their German international defender Jerome Boateng saw them slip to defeat.
They still have a four-point lead at the top from Schalke, while Leverkusen have moved up to fifth.
The visitors took the lead when Andre Schuerrle left striker Stefan Kiessling with a close range tap-in after 42 minutes.
Bayern drew level with 13 minutes remaining as striker Mario Mandzukic headed home, but Leverkusen were to enjoy their first win in Munich since 1989.
Boateng's attempted to head away a shot but it just flew past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer on 86 minutes.
In other action, Eintracht Frankfurt missed the chance to move back above Schalke when they lost 2-1 at Stuttgart.
