Jonas Hector’s injury-time goal for Koln denied Schalke from getting a victory that would have carried then to the top of the standings.
Aware that win was going to see them end the round at the top of the league standings, Borussia Monchengladbach achieved the task on hand by going into the break with a 4-0 lead on Augsburg.
Wout Weghorst’s goal in the 69th-minute was enough to give Wolfsburg the win at home against Union Berlin. The result sent Wolfsburg to second-place in the league standings.
