  • RasenBallsport Leipzig 4 – 5 Bayern Munich

German champions Bayern Munich came from behind to beat second-placed RB Leipzig in a high-scoring encounter.

In a game with little riding on it, Marcel Sabitzer headed Leipzig ahead, before Robert Lewandowski levelled.

Timo Werner and Yussuf Poulsen scored for Leipzig, with Thiago pulling one back before Werner made it 4-2.

Lewandowski scored in the 84th minute, with David Alaba and Arjen Robben netting in injury time to turn it around for Bayern.

The visitors sealed their fifth consecutive Bundesliga title last  month.

  • ​Augsburg 1 – 1 Borussia  Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund slipped up in their chase for third spot as Hoffenheim hammered Werder Bremen to go level on points.

Dortmund were held 1-1 by Augsburg, who picked up a valuable point in their battle against relegation, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalised Alfred Finnbogason’s opening goal. Julian Weigl was also taken off early, and the team confirmed he suffered a broken ankle.

  • Werder Bremen 3 – 5 Hoffenheim

Hoffenheim’s 5-3 win over Bremen — with goals from Adam Szalai, Andrej Kramaric (2), Steven Zuber and Ermin Bicakcic — saw them move level on 61 points, but four behind on goal difference.

The third-placed team will earn a spot in the Champions League group stage, while fourth must go through the playoff round.

  • Bayer Leverkusen 2 – 2 FC Cologne

Bayer Leverkusen came from two goals down to draw with Cologne and effectively put an end to any lingering relegation worries in a compelling Rhine derby.

Needing the points to avoid being drawn into the thick of the relegation quagmire, Leverkusen started the stronger. 

Cologne could not live with visiting striker Stefan Kiesling, who forced a pair of fine saves from Timo Horn. 

Bayer were made to rue those missed chances, however, as Milos Jojic drove home the opener with aid of a huge deflection off Tin Jedvaj.

Cologne doubled their lead after a superb solo run and finish from 20-year-old Lukas Klünter.

Stefan Kiesling reduced the deficit for Leverkusen, before substitute Joel Pohjanpalo met Kai Havertz’s dinked cross to level and all but secure Bayer’s top-flight status for another campaign.

  • Mainz 05 4 – 2 Eintracht  Frankfurt

Mainz are effectively safe from relegation after coming from 2-0 down to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 4-2.

Goals either side of half-time from Branimir Hrgota and Haris Seferovic looked like handing Frankfurt victory but Jhon Cordoba, Stefan Bell, Yoshinori Muto and Pablo de Blasis all struck in the final half-hour for Mainz.

  • Freiburg 1 – 1 Ingolstadt

Ingolstadt have been relegated following a 1-1 draw at Freiburg, bringing an end to their two-year stay in the Bundesliga.

Maximilian Philipp gave Europa League hopefuls Freiburg the lead on 31 minutes before Dario Lezcano headed in an equaliser just before the break. However, Hamburg’s last-gasp 1-1 draw at Schalke leaves Ingolstadt four points adrift of safety heading into the final weekend.

  • Schalke 04 1 – 1 Hamburger SV

Pierre-Michel Lasogga scored an injury-time equaliser for Hamburg at Schalke- the goal which sealed Ingolstadt’s fate. 

Hamburg remain in the relegation play-off place going into the final day – where they host Wolfsburg, the team two points above them.

Die Rothosen have not been demoted from the German top flight since the Bundesliga’s inception in 1963 but they are now two points adrift in the relegation playoff place. 

Guido Burgstaller’s first-half goal for Schalke had left them all-but guaranteed to finish 16th but Lasogga’s equaliser gives them hope of catching either Mainz, Augsburg or Wolfsburg.

  • Wolfsburg 1 – 1 Borussia Moenchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach drew 1-1 with Wolfsburg.

Mario Gomez  levelled for Wolfsburg  after Jannik Vestergaard first half lead for Monchengladbach. 

Wolfsburg have until the final day to be sure of their  safety.

  • Darmstadt 0 – 2 Hertha Berlin

Already-relegated Darmstadt lost 2-0 at home to Hertha Berlin.

Salomon Kalou and Torunarigha first half goals ensured the three points for Hertha.
