Bundesliga Matchday 26 Roundup: Bayern Put Six Past Augsburg

Robert Lewandowski bagged a superb hat-trick as he fired Bayern Munich on to a 6-0 victory over relegation strugglers Augsburg.

Lewandowski opened the scoring for Bayern in the 17th-minute before Thomas Muller found the back of the net in the 36th-minute.

The Bavarian giants took a 2-0 lead into the half time interval, and when they returned for the second 45, their lead multiplied.

Lewandowski scored his second goal of the game in the 55th-minute. Thiago Alcantara also got his name on the scoresheet in the 62nd-minute.

Bayern were cruising to victory when Lewandowski completed his hat-trick in the 79th-minute, and Thomas Muller completed his brace with 10 minutes of normal time left to be played.

Bayern’s 13 point gap at the top of the table was upheld as the Bayern breeze proved to be too strong for lowly Augsburg.

RB Leipzig, who have now turned their focus to finishing 2nd in the league due to their recent rut which saw them lose touch with Bayern in the title race beat Darmstadt on Saturday.

Darmstadt travelled to Leipzig in an attempt to grab a favourable result against the Bundesliga’s second-placed side, but they ended up succumbing to a disappointing 4-0 defeat as Leipzig put out a statement to their top four rivals.

The in-form Emil Forsberg scored a goal and assisted another as he put up yet another influential display for RB.

Naby Keita opened the scoring before goals from Forsberg, and Will Orban took Leipzig’s tally up to three goals. Naby Keita scored his side’s fourth goal (and also his second of the game) in the 80th-minute.

Friday Night’s fixture saw Hertha Berlin and Hoffenheim lock horns with the latter taking the spoils at the Olympiastadion.

Peter Pekarik opened the scoring for Hertha in the 32th-minute before Andrej Kramaric drew Hoffenheim level with a 39th-minute penalty.

Bayern-bound Niklas Suele had doubled Hoffenheim’s lead before Kramaric completed his brace in the 86th-minute.

Free-scoring Werder Bremen beat Freiburg 5-2 away at the Schwarzwald-Stadion. A hat-trick from Thomas Delaney coupled with goals from Max Kruse and Fin Bartels led Bremen to the victory.

Nils Petersen and Vincenzo Grifo scored Freiburg’s consolation goals.

Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Monchengladbach both failed to score as their tightly-contested clash ended goals whilst relegation-threatened Hamburger SV secured a surprise 2-1 victory over Cologne.

Nicolai Muller opened the scoring for Hamburg in the 13th-minute, but Milos Jojic managed to pull one back for his side with a 25th-minute goal.

Hamburg had to wait till the very last minute of normal time to seal the victory as Lewis Holtby found the back of the net in the 90th-minute thus giving Hamburg’s chances of Bundesliga survival a huge boost.

Elsewhere, Schalke held Dortmund to a 1-1 draw as Thomas Tuchel’s men travelled to Veltins Arena in a bid to close the gap between them and second-placed Leipzig.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring for Dortmund in the 53rd-minute after a goalless first half, but Thilo Kehrer’s 77th-minute strike helped his side secure a massive point against one of the league’s best attacking outfits.

Ingolstadt beat Mainz 2-1 at the Audi Sportpark on Sunday as Romain Bregerie and Florent Hadergjonaj scored to give Ingolstadt the three points.

Marvin Matip’s own goal proved to be Mainz’ lone strike. Mainz are level on points with 16th-placed Augsburg who remain likely to feature in this season’s relegation playoff game.

The BayArea hosted the best Bundesliga match of the weekend as Leverkusen and Wolfsburg shared the spoils after a scintillating 3-3 draw.

Karim Bellarabi sent Leverkusen into the second half with a goal advantage, which was subsequently doubled by Kevin Volland in the 65th-minute. Wolfsburg found their way back into the tie through Mario Gomez who opened the scoring for Die Wolfie in the 80th-minute and closed it in the 86th-minute.

The former Bayern striker bagged a hat-trick for Wolfsburg in seven minutes, but Kai Havertz managed to score the equaliser for Leverkusen as the game ended in a stalemate.
