Munich - FC Bayern München moved a step closer to securing a 23rd Bundesliga title, while Borussia Mönchengladbach recorded their first league win of 2014 at Borussia Dortmund, who suffered their fourth home defeat of the season.

As ever, is on hand to round up the main talking points from the latest weekend of top-flight action...

The runaway Bundesliga leaders continued their assault on the record books on Matchday 25. The Bavarians' 2-1 win over Bayer 04 Leverkusen was their 50th league game without defeat, and Pep Guardiola's troops could even become the first-ever side to wrap up the league title in March if they win at 1. FSV Mainz 05 next weekend and both Borussia Dortmund and FC Schalke 04 fail to pick up maximum points.

Borussia Dortmund are one of two teams who could - mathematically at least - still overhaul Bayern in the race for the championship, but the unbeaten leaders' relentless march towards the title was aided by BVB's 2-1 home defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach - their fourth loss in front of their own fans this season. Gladbach, however, enjoyed their first victory of 2014 in Westphalia on Saturday, while becoming the first team this season to do the double over Jürgen Klopp's side in the process.

FC Schalke 04 had only lost one league match since the turn of the year prior to their clash with FC Augsburg, but the Royal Blues got off to the worst possible start at the SGL Arena on Friday evening as Tobias Werner gave the hosts a deserved lead. However, two goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar sealed a 2-1 victory over die Fuggerstädter, whose home form has dropped dramatically in recent weeks: Augsburg's last win on their own patch came against SV Werder Bremen on Matchday 19.

After 1899 Hoffenheim had raced into a 2-0 lead at the Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Saturday afternoon, there seemed little hope of Mainz collecting their twelfth victory of the campaign in Sinsheim. However, goals from Maxim Choupo-Moting and Benedikt Saller brought the visitors level, before a Shinji Okazaki brace clinched a remarkable comeback for Mainz, who climb up to fifth in the Bundesliga table - just three points behind Leverkusen. Not that Thomas Tuchel's side will be getting carried away, though...

1. FC Nürnberg managed to keep fellow relegation candidates Hamburger SV at bay for 80 minutes of their clash at the Imtech Arena on Sunday, but two late goals helped clinch a narrow win for the hosts, who leapfrog Gertjan Verbeek's team into 14th in the Bundesliga table. VfB Stuttgart, meanwhile, drop into the relegation places after being held to 1-1 draw at SV Werder Bremen. SC Freiburg's win at Eintracht Frankfurt lifts Christian Streich's side into the relegation play-off spot in 16th.

Mainz's win in Hoffenheim wasn't only remarkable for the outcome on the pitch - there was an unsual coming-together on the sidelines too. Check it out on the Bundesliga's official YouTube channel:
