Bundesliga Matchday 27: Bayern Falter against Hoffenheim

Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim shocked Bayern Munich in one of the Bundesliga's midweek ties as they secured a 1-0 victory over the league leaders.

The defeat was only Bayern’s second of the season and whilst it will have little effect on the league standings, Carlo Ancelotti’s men will certainly be keen on improving on the areas they faltered in against Hoffenheim.

Bayern kept most of the possession, but the likes of Lewandowski and Robben were unable to find the back of the net.

Former Leicester man, Andrej Kramaric, struck home in the 21st-minute to lead Hoffenheim to a victory that could very well have cemented their place in the top four.

Dortmund were clinical on Tuesday night as they welcomed Hamburg to the Signal Iduna Park.

Gonzalo Castro opened the scoring for der BVB as they carried a 1-0 lead into the second half.

Dortmund scored two goals in the final 10 minutes of the tie courtesy of Shinji Kagawa and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Hamburg are currently flirting with relegation as they sit just one point above the dreaded drop zone whilst Dortmund remain likely to secure a place in next season’s Champions League, albeit from a playoff spot.

Free-scoring Werder Bremen put up a remarkable performance at home on Tuesday as Alexander Nouri’s men made the most of their possession to grab a 3-0 victory over Schalke.

Theodore Gebre Selassie notched the first goal of the game in the 24th-minute before Max Kruse found the back of the net through a second half penalty.

Maximillian Eggestein closed the scoring for Bremen in the 80th-minute thus leaving the visitors with no chance of staging a comeback.

Schalke put up a decent display away from home, but they were unable to convert their chances.

Elsewhere, Milos Jojic produced the goods with a 53rd-minute strike as Eintracht Frankfurt succumbed to a disheartening 1-0 defeat away at Cologne.

Frankfurt are currently 3 points adrift of 5th-placed Cologne. With both sides evidently out of the running for a spot in the top four, they’ll be keen on securing Europa League qualification.

Wolfsburg failed to build on their stellar performance against Bayer Leverkusen as they suffered a slender 1-0 loss at home to Freiburg.

The game looked poised to end goalless before Florian Neiderlechner scored what proved to be the match-winner for Freiburg in the 78th-minute.

Wolfsburg continues to languish at the bottom end of the table with just 1 point being the difference between Die Wolfe and the relegation zone.

Leverkusen took their A-game to Darmstadt on Wednesday night as goals from Julian Brandt, and Kevin Volland saw them grab maximum points in the tie.

Leverkusen’s Bundesliga campaign has been full of ups and downs, but they now look set to put their dismal sequence behind them with the season now drawing to a close.

Borussia Monchengladbach ran out of Borussia-Park with three points in the bag as they put up an enthralling display to beat Hertha Berlin 1-0.

Hertha currently occupies the last Europa League spot, but they could drop down from 6th-place should their form go on a downward spiral.

Almog Cohen scored a brace, and Sonny Kittel got his name on the scoresheet as Ingolstadt won 3-2 away at Augsburg.

Augsburg's consolation goals came through Paul Verhaegh’s 76th-minute penalty and Halil Altintop’s 81st-minute strike.

Augsburg currently resides in the relegation zone but are just one point away from Bundesliga safety. It remains to be seen whether they can avoid relegation this term.

Marcel Sabitzer, Timo Werner, and Naby Keita all chipped in with the goals as RB Leipzig grabbed a 3-2 win against Mainz.

Jairo and Jean-Philippe Gbamin notched late goals in an attempt to get Mainz back in the tie, but their efforts failed to come to fruition as Leipzig ultimately claimed the three points.
