Schalke up to fourth
It wasn't all plain sailing for the Royal Blues at the RheinEnergieSTADION on Saturday, but goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Max Meyer and Franco Di Santo earned Andre Breitenreiter's charges a 3-1 victory against the Billy Goats.

Claudio Pizarro's goals could go a long way to preserving SV Werder Bremen's top-flight status this season. The Peruvian notched his 100th for the club in the 4-1 win over rock-bottom Hannover.

Ja-Cheol Koo became the first Augsburg player in the Bundesliga to score a hat-trick against Leverkusen on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to earn Markus Weinzierl's side all three points at the WWK ARENA.
Somehow, the visitors recovered from 3-0 down to claim a dramatic 3-3 draw, with Hakan Calhanoglu's late penalty completing the comeback for Die Werkself. Find out what Koo and Co made of the encounter here.
Even with BVB's goalless draw with Bayern, there were 26 goals scored in Saturday's games in Germany's top flight. Three of those came at the Volkswagen Arena, where Wolfsburg boosted their European push with victory over Mönchengladbach.
