Dortmund should have scored again as Sancho terrorised the Leverkusen defence with his speed and skill, but Reus saw his penalty saved and the host wasted several more scoring opportunities. Reus and Maximilian Philipp added two more goals in the second half before Reus got a deserved second after a superb cross to the far post from Sancho. Dortmund moved up to 54 points, three ahead of Leverkusen, who stay fourth, with three games left in the season. The top four teams qualify for next season's Champions League group stage. Schalke, in second on 55, travel to Cologne Sunday.
Mark #Uth's brace takes him up into joint second ?Oh, and @lewy_official also scored (again) ? pic.twitter.com/ZzOA56A2Yx — Bundesliga English (@Bundesliga_EN) April 21, 2018
Struggling Hamburg SV battled past Freiburg 1-0 in their relegation derby to earn a lifeline in their desperate bid to stay up with three matches left. The former European champion, who are the only Bundesliga team to have played in the top division in every season since the league's creation in 1963, are in 17th place on 25 points, five behind Freiburg who are in the relegation playoff spot in 16th. Bayern Munich, already crowned champion, never hit top form in their 3-0 victory at Hanover 96 as they prepare to face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final next week. They had to wait almost an hour to break the deadlock with substitute Thomas Mueller firing in from a Juan Bernat cross. Fellow substitute Robert Lewandowski added another with a header in the 73rd and Sebastian Rudy completed a comfortable afternoon for the champion.
