It is 'as you were' in the race for Bundesliga honours, but there were plenty of movers and shakers from the top two down on Matchday 28. reviews the five biggest talking points from another entrancing round of fixtures in the league of the world champions...

Ribery renaissance

Kingsley Coman's emergence at FC Bayern München helped ease the problems Pep Guardiola might have had with Franck Ribery's prolonged, injury-enforced absence. With Coman sidelined on Saturday, Ribery stepped into the fray, and reminded Bundesliga fans why he is a Bayern legend. The former France international was creative, combative and - ultimately - the difference between Bayern and Eintracht Frankfurt to keep the reigning champions five points clear at the top. And what a strike with which to do it...

The title-chase between Borussia Dortmund and FC Bayern remains alive with six games left to play. Despite BVB's relentless form, it is nonetheless difficult to see the Bavarians dropping five points in the run-in. Thomas Tuchel has a UEFA Europa League quarter-final against Liverpool FC on Thursday before a tricky Revierderby against FC Schalke 04 next week, and although Dortmund got away with playing Erik Durm and Sven Bender out of position against Bremen, Bayern's sheer strength in depth could tell over the final stretch.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen might be tempted to allow Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez to fly off halfway around the world more often, judging by his sensational performance from the substitutes' bench against VfL Wolfsburg. The 27-year-old had been to Canada and Mexico during the international break, but still had enough left in the tank to end his 282-minute Bundesliga goal drought and lay on an assist for Vladlen Yurchenko in a 3-0 win that fired Die Werkself right back into the top-four reckoning with six games to go.

Betting against 1. FSV Mainz 05 to secure a first European campaign since 2011/12 would not be safe. FC Augsburg played one of their best games this season, Die Nullfünfer only used recent star performer Julian Baumgartlinger for the final 16 minutes, and the hosts still prevailed 4-2. Three of Mainz's remaining six games are against teams in the bottom half of the table, and Martin Schmidt will be optimistic of securing a place in Europe before their mouthwatering final-day clash with Hertha Berlin.

Hazard lights up Foals

With Raffael laid low, Borussia Mönchengladbach needed someone to step up and fill the void left by their top scorer’s absence: cue, Thorgan Hazard. The Belgium international was a threat throughout, and would have had a hat-trick in the Foals’ 5-0 win over Hertha Berlin but for Rune Jarstein’s superb first-half save. If the former Chelsea FC prodigy can maintain the form he showed at BORUSSIA-PARK on Sunday, Gladbach will have a real chance of claiming the top-four finish they crave.
