Did Robert lewandowski break Gerd Müller’s scoring record?
He did not, but he did equal the record.
A calm penalty saw the Pole draw level with Müller’s record of 40 goals in a season. He had the chances to set a new record but somehow missed from close range. Perhaps Bayern Munich’s leading man will manage it next week?
What happened in the relegation battle?
In a feisty relegation scrap with a red card for each team, Augsburg got a win against Werder Bremen that keeps them safe, but plunges Florian Kohfeldt’s side into even greater danger.
Hertha Berlin are also safe after a draw against Cologne, who need a win on the final day against Schalke to stand a chance. Bielefeld are out of the relegation zone, but might need something against Stuttgart on the final day depending on what Werder Bremen do against Gladbach.
Saturday’s results also secured safety for Mainz, but for three teams it’s all to play for on the final day.
What was the game of the weekend?
Schalke’s 4-3 win against Frankfurt had everything. Schalke went ahead, were 2-1 down and then led 4-2.
