Bundesliga Matchday 19 Roundup: Bayern Given A Free Pass by Leipzig

Bayern Munich’s winning run was halted by Schalke as the Bavarian giants played out a 1-1 draw which put them in danger of being overtaken by Leipzig in the coming weeks. Leipzig, though, failed to capitalize on Bayern’s slip as they lost 1-0 to Dortmund.

Lewandowski opened the scoring for Bayern at the Allianz Arena with a fierce strike in the 9th-minute which appeared to have given them the edge at that point. Schalke, though, were unfazed and held their own against the Bavarian giants with Naldo scoring a sublime free-kick.

Leipzig’s failure to win against Dortmund saw the league leaders extend the gap at the top of the table to four points after a 1-0 loss in a game RB Leipzig looked poised to win.

Gabon international, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game for Dortmund in the 35th-minute. The speedy forward latched on to a cross from Ousmane Dembele and put the ball in the back of the net.

Dortmund were also presented with clear-cut chances to make their victory more comfortable, but Aubameyang and Marco Reus failed to convert.

Augsburg grabbed a dramatic win over Werder Bremen as Raul Bobadilla scored a stoppage time goal to earn his side a 3-2 win.

Bremen were in front in the game on two occasions, with Gebre Selassie and Max Kruse getting on the scoresheet for the free-scoring visitors.

Augsburg on the other hand had to dig deep in a bid to overcome the threat posed by Bremen and they had Jonathan Schmid, Jacheol Koo and Bobadilla to thank on Saturday as they trio spurred them on to an emphatic win which saw them go level on points with 9th-placed Leverkusen.

Friday night saw Leverkusen’s sporadic form continue as they suffered a shocking defeat away at relegation strugglers Hamburg. Kyriakos Papadopoulos scored the game’s only goal as his side edged closer to Bundesliga safety with the surprise win.

Hamburg are now level on points with Weder Bremen who sit right above them in 15th-place on the league table. A win in their next game could see Hamburg climb out of the dropzone.

Hoffenheim bounced back from their loss against Leipzig in the previous weekend as they secured a 4-0 win over Mainz 05 with a superb display of attacking football.

The Rhein-Neckar Arena witnessed the thumping of Mainz with Mark Uth scoring the opening goal through a sublime volley in the 4th-minute. The game stayed 1-0 up until its closing stages when substitute Marco Terrazzino doubled the home side’s lead.

Adam Szalai rounded things off with a late brace which sealed the 4-0 win for Hoffenheim. They may have lost their unbeaten streak, but they’re still on course to qualify for European football next season.

Hertha Berlin secured a slender 1-0 win over Ingolstadt with Genki Haragouchi scoring the game’s only goal in the 2th-minute.

Salomon Kalou whipped in a cross which Haragouchi put past goalkeeper Martin Hansen in the game’s early stages. It was the Japan international’s first goal of the season and it saw Hertha edge closer to fourth place.

Wolsburg’s dismal sequence continued as they lost 1-0 to a Cologne side intent on making it into the Europa League next season.

Valerien Ismael’s men are three points above the relegation zone, thus they could be in danger of dropping into the league’s lower echelons if results don’t come their way. Anthony Modeste scored Cologne’s lone goal from the penalty spot late in the game.

Borussia Monchengladbach ran riot against Freiburg as they secured a 3-0 win over the mid-table side. Goals from Lars Stindl, Raffael and Patrick Herrmann saw Dieter Hecking’s side pick up the win.
