Berlin (dpa) - The championship can hardly be taken from Bayern. A high victory for chaser Borussia Dortmund on Sunday (6:00 p.m. / Sky) at the bottom of the Paderborn base would change little.
It is more exciting in the table cellar - Werder Bremen is back at the non-relegation places. Union Berlin therefore urgently needs a sense of achievement for Champions League contender Borussia Mönchengladbach in the afternoon (3.30 p.m. / Sky) in order to widen the gap again.
MASTERFUL: FC Bayern has impressively emphasized that the champions can only come from Munich for the eighth time in a row. At 5-0 (3-0) on Saturday evening, Fortuna Dusseldorf's opponents didn't stand a chance. "At Bayern Munich, you have to become a champion, and we have the goal," said coach Hansi Flick. For his team, it was important to show after the win at BVB during the week that “the team would not let up”. His players couldn't have done much better. "We are very hungry, we want to win every game and we want to be at the top in the end," said David Alaba.
BIG POINTS: Werder Bremen is far from being relegated. Due to the hard-won 1-0 (1-0) at FC Schalke 04, the North Germans reduced the gap to 15th to three points. "We still have six games, we have to stay in the tunnel and stay focused," said coach Florian Kohfeldt, to whom Werder has held on despite massive criticism from outside. "We defended ourselves against this pressure and have now all been rewarded to some extent as a club," said supervisory board boss Marco Bode in the program "Wontorra - the football talk" on the TV channel Sky Sport News HD.
BIG CITY CLUB: With the new trainer Bruno Labbadia, Hertha BSC can finally feel like a top team. Four games since the restart, three wins, ten points - the Berlin Bundesliga club has long since stopped playing as a relegation candidate. "All in all, we are incredibly happy, but we really had to suffer," said Labbadia after the 2-0 (1-0) against FC Augsburg. With only four points behind in sixth place, Hertha fans can even dream carefully about qualifying for the European Cup. The club brakes: "We are well advised to take one step at a time," said manager Michael Preetz before the Augsburg game.
FIGHTING: Adi Hütter looked extremely relieved, and he had good reason for it. Due to the secured 2-1 (1-0) victory at VfL Wolfsburg in the final phase, Eintracht Frankfurt now has 32 points and is 12th in the table. no longer firmly in the fight against relegation. "We achieved an absolute liberation today," said Hütter. "It is very good for us." The Japanese Daichi Kamada made the decision in the 85th minute. "But what I liked best: I saw from the first to the last minute of every player that he was combative in the service of the team," said Hütter.
Unfortunate: FSV Mainz 05 made a good game against TSG Hoffenheim, goalkeeper Florian Müller also saved a penalty from Steven Zuber. The goal was scored by the guests: Ihlas Bebou scored in the 43rd minute to make it 1-0 (1-0). "We dominated Hoffenheim in the second half and pushed them into our own half," said coach Achim Beierlorzer and said: "We need points. We have to make the goals already. » And even guest trainer Alfred Schreuder said: «Maybe today they deserve more. Today we were the lucky ones. »
