Hamburg's 2-1 loss to Wolfsburg saw Thorsten Fink's men drop into the relegation zone, while Augsburg took a point from their trip to Werder Bremen

Wolfsburg 2-1 Hamburg
Hamburg's nightmare run of form continued as they slipped to a 2-1 loss away to Wolfsburg.

The first half was a scrappy affair, with both teams failing to deliver, but within seconds of the restart, the hosts found themselves a goal up through a Mario Mandzukic header. The lead did not last long, however, with Marcus Berg's smart finish getting the visitors back on level terms less than a minute after falling behind.

Marcel Schafer edged his side in front again with 15 minutes remaining, and Felix Magath's men were able to hold on to keep their slim hopes of Europa League qualification alive.
Bayern Munich 2-1 Hannover
Freiburg 2-0 Kaiserslautern
Freiburg grabbed a vital win in a bid to retain their top-flight status, overcoming fellow strugglers Kaiserslautern 2-0 at home.

The hosts started the game at breakneck speed, and got their due reward after eight minutes when Karim Guede put his side in front. Minutes later, they doubled their lead through Cedrick Makiadi, and Freiburg were able to cling on to their advantage until the final whistle to move out of the relegation zone.

For Kaiserslautern, however, matters look increasingly bleak as they remain bottom of the table with a seven-point gap between themselves and safety opening up.
Gladbach 1-2 Hoffenheim


Monchengladbach's indifferent run of form continued, with Lucien Favre's side surrendering a one-goal lead to crash at home to Hoffenheim.

The hosts got off to a good start, with Marco Reus' strike giving the surprise package a half-time lead. It seemed as though the Dortmund-bound forward's strike would be enough to give his side all three points, but Roberto Firmino put the visitors back on level terms with full-time looming, before Boris Vukcevic completed the stunning comeback minutes later.

Despite the loss, Gladbach still look likely to qualify for the Champions League, while Hoffenheim remain comfortably in mid-table.
Werder Bremen 1-1 Augsburg


Augsburg grabbed a crucial point to keep them out of the drop zone, gaining a credible draw away to Werder Bremen.

Young striker Niclas Fullkrug's strike looked to have given Thomas Schaaf's side all three points, but in the final minute of stoppage time, Paul Verhaegh netted an unlikely equaliser.

This result keeps the Bavarians just outside the relegation zone, while Bremen remain in the final Europa League spot.
Mainz 1-3 Hertha
Hertha Berlin kept ground on their fellow relegation candidates, recording a 3-1 victory over a resurgent Mainz side.

Otto Rehhagel's men had approached the clash in appalling form, but took the lead on the stroke of half-time through Anis Ben-Hatira. Adrian Ramos doubled the visitors' advantage just after the break, but they were soon pegged back by a Maxim Choupo-Moting effort.

However, all hopes of a home comeback were staved off when Ramos netted his second of the match as the visitors ran out 3-1 winners.
