Franck Ribery made it 3-0 in the 79th with a breakaway goal,
Kaiserslautern 0-0 Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg were held to a fifth consecutive draw in the hostile Fritz-Walter-Stadion. The visitors were better in possession, but Kaiserslautern created chance after chance, and were very unlucky not to take all three points. For all their opportunities, the hosts only forced two saves from Diego Benaglio, and had to settle for a draw.
Hoffenheim 1-1 Nuernberg
Hoffenheim and Nuernberg shared the spoils in a rather evenly played match. Marvin Compper's 55th minute header put the hosts ahead, but Nuernberg drew level three minutes from full time as Christian Eigler finished following an intricate passing sequence.
Koeln 1-0 Eintracht Frankfurt
Koeln earned a rare victory over Ricardo Clrak's Eintracht Frankfurt side despite seeing very little of the ball. The hosts earned three points through youngster Christian Clemens, who finished well on 56 minutes. Frankfurt pressed for a late equaliser, but were unable to draw level before the final whistle.
