Bayern with a goal parade, but BVB keeps pace

With the biggest win under coach Thomas Tuchel, FC Bayern is staying on course for the next title win in the German Bundesliga. But Dortmund upped the ante in the evening game.

Led by starting eleven returnee Thomas Müller and the strong double goal scorer Serge Gnabry, the Munich team celebrated a 6-0 goal parade on Saturday against FC Schalke 04, who are in serious danger of relegation. With two rounds still to go, the Munich team are striving towards the eleventh German championship in a row.

Müller gave Bayern a deserved lead in the 21st minute. After Schalke's Cedric Brunner fouled Jamal Musiala in the penalty area, Joshua Kimmich (29th) increased from the penalty spot. After the break, Gnabry (50th, 65th) was successful twice, and substitute Mathys Tel (80th) and Noussair Mazraoui (92nd) also scored. Schalke, who were almost non-existent offensively, slipped into relegation place.

Borussia Dortmund is still just one point behind Bayern, the pursuer won against Borussia Mönchengladbach 5-2. Donyell Malen (5th), Jude Bellingham (18th/penalty) and Sebastian Haller (20th, 32nd) made things clear in Dortmund in just over half an hour. After the restart, Ramy Bensebaini (75th/penalty) and Lars Stindl (86th) made cosmetic gains before Dortmund's Giovanni Reyna (95th) brought about the final point.

Without outgoing coach Oliver Glasner, Eintracht Frankfurt ended its months-long earnings crisis. The Hessians clearly defeated Mainz 3-0. Glasner, who was suspended after a red card, watched from a box as his team achieved their first league success since mid-February. Daichi Kamada (19th/penalty), Aurelio Buta (40th) and Randal Kolo Muani (59th) scored for the cup finalists, who kept their hopes of a European place through the league.

In the race for the Champions League places, Union Berlin pulled away from rivals Freiburg with a 4-2 home win. Kevin Behrens (5th) got Union on track in the million-dollar game for the premier class, Sheraldo Becker (36th) increased and then celebrated his goal with a mask of the superhero Spiderman. He received a yellow card for this.

Just two minutes later, the offensive player scored again. Manuel Gulde (56') and Vincenzo Grifo (70'/penalty) gave Freiburg hope again before Aissa Laidouni (80') scored for Union.

VfL Bochum won three important points in the relegation battle with a 3-2 win against Augsburg. After the 1:2 defeat in Wolfsburg, Hoffenheim has to worry about staying in the league again.
