  • ​Bayern Munich 3 – 0 Eintracht Frankfurt

Bayern Munich extended their lead at the top of the Bundesliga to 10 points with a comfortable win over Eintracht Frankfurt, as their title rivals lost.

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring on 38 minutes and Douglas Costa doubled the lead two minutes later.

The Poland striker scored his second of the game after half-time to reach 100 goals for Bayern in his 136th game.

Bayern, who beat Arsenal 5-1on Tuesday in their Champions League round-of-16 tie, lead the table on 59 points, with Leipzig on 49 and Dortmund on 43.

Niko Kovac’s Eagles, meanwhile, remain in contention for a Europa League place, but this was their fifth straight defeat and third by this scoreline in their last five away games.

Frankfurt captain Marco Russ came on as a second-half substitute to play in his first Bundesliga game of the season, after recovering from  testicular cancer.

  • RasenBallsport Leipzig 0 – 1 Wolfsburg

Leipzig went down 1-0 to lowly Wolfsburg at the Red Bull Arena.

Mario Gomez’s ninth-minute goal — his eighth this term — separated the teams and lifted the Wolves three points clear of the relegation places.

  • Hertha Berlin 2 – 1 Borussia Dortmund


Borussia Dortmund had an excellent opportunity to try and get closer to the top two, but they instead suffered a 2-1 defeat at Hertha Berlin.

Salomon Kalou’s opener in the 11th minute set the tone for a difficult afternoon for Thomas Tuchel’s men and it was not until the 55th minute that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang managed to equalise.

With 19 minutes remaining, defender Marvin Plattenhardt plundered a winner that took Hertha above Frankfurt and into fifth, where they are four points behind Hoffenheim.

  • Freiburg 1 – 1 Hoffenheim

Julian Nagelsmann’s Hoffenheim had to settle for a share of the spoils from a 1-1 draw at Freiburg.

Maximilian Philipp put the seventh-placed club ahead before the hour mark, on which former Leicester man Andrej Kramaric levelled to preserve Hoffenheim’s four-match unbeaten run.

  • Ingolstadt 2 – 2 FC Cologne

Modeste, the former Blackburn striker, boosted mid-table Cologne ahead with a 15th-minute penalty. But Dario Lezcano sent 17th-placed Ingolstadt inside on level terms when he stuck away Sonny Kittel’s assist.

Cologne restored their lead through Modeste on the hour mark, only for Romain Bregerie to score nine minutes later, thus clinching Ingolstadt’s first draw since November. Hamburg, in the relegation play-off spot, are now four points away.

  • Darmstadt 2 – 1 Mainz 05

Bottom side Darmstadt picked up just a second win in 16 attempts as Mainz fell to a 2-1 loss at the Jonathan-Heimes-Stadion.

Aytac Sulu and Sidney Sam — from the penalty spot — boosted the basement boys into a shock two-goal lead before Robin Quaison halved the deficit in first-half stoppage time.

Both teams lost a man to red cards following the break, with Mario Vrancic and Stefan Bell walking for the hosts and the visitors respectively.
