Five minutes after the interval, Joakim Maehle of the Wolves broke the tie when he found enough room in the box to beat goalkeeper Alexander Nuebel and curl a shot past him.

In the 54th minute, though, Guirassy scored from the spot kick when Maehle was found to have brought down Enzo Millot in the box.

Josha Vagnoman gave them a two-goal lead in the 77th minute, and six minutes later, Lukas Nmecha’s effort for Wolfsburg got them a goal back.

Stuttgart, four points behind Bayern, who faltered to a 2-2 draw at Freiburg on Friday, is in third place with 50 points.

With 44 points, six points behind in fourth place is Borussia Dortmund.

The top four teams go to the Champions League for the next season.
