The Saturday wrap: how the dice fell

The 2015/16 Bundesliga season is coming to a head and there was plenty to celebrate for a number of teams on Matchday 31.

Title on hold for another week

After a busy day of action on Saturday, bundesliga.com rounds up the key events that influenced matters at both ends of the table.

FC Bayern München could have secured the Bundesliga Meisterschale on Saturday, but only if they beat Hertha Berlin and Borussia Dortmund lost to VfB Stuttgart. As BVB won, Bayern will have to wait until Matchday 32 to make sure the title is mathematically safe, and will do so if they overcome visitors Borussia Mönchengladbach. A draw or defeat would even do for Bayern to rubberstamp an historic fourth successive championship, as long as Dortmund do not post a better result at home against VfL Wolfsburg.
