Now all eyes are trained on a Top Four clash between John Brooks’ Hertha Berlin and Hoffenheim on Sunday.

Augsburg 1-3 Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowski scored his first league goals since Sept. 17 as Bayern led 3-0 by the 48th minute. Arjen Robben also scored for the reigning champs, with Ja-Cheol Koo scoring the lone goal for Augsburg.

Borussia Dortmund 0-0 Schalke

The 149th Revierderby was fairly even, with the hosts attempting one more shot on frame than the eight proffered by Schalke. Dortmund took a lot more passes and outcrossed Schalke 16-3, but a goal never arrived at Signal Iduna Park.

As for the Christian Pulisic report, the USMNT teenager was active again in his fifth 90-minute effort for BVB this season. The Bundesliga site credits him with the most “fast runs” of the game for BVB (79), as well as the most shots on goal for either team (3), but the diminutive winger again took a lot of physical abuse.

Darmstadt 0-2 RB Leipzig

Austrian attacker Marcel Sabitzer scored his second and third goals of the season as Leipzig continues to pester traditionalists with a top-end run during its first year in the Bundesliga.
