Hamburg 2-5 Borussia Dortmund

BVB is within six points of Bayern after thumping Hamburg behind the power of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who replied loudly after being suspended midweek for being late to training.

The Gabon national team star had four goals by the 48th minute, with USMNT teen Christian Pulisic assisting the fourth. Ousmane Dembele scored Dortmund’s other goal.

Bayern Munich 1-1 Hoffenheim

Both goals came off the visitors, as Bayern was misfiring after a midweek win in the UEFA Champions League. Bayern had a 21-5 advantage in shots and completed 280 more passes than the visitors, but Hoffenheim remains in the Top Four with 20 points.

Freiburg 0-3 Wolfsburg

The Breisgau-Brasilianer are no longer unbeaten in Bundesliga play after Mario Gomez bookended halftime with goals and Ricardo Rodriguez iced the game with a late penalty. The win pulls Wolfsburg out of the Bottom Three.
