Three more matches of the 30th round of the Bundesliga were played after Bayern defeated Bayer 4-2 at Leverkusen. Mainz secured a major victory in the struggle for survival, beating Eintracht Frankfurt with 2-0 goals from Mousse Niakhaté (43) and Pierre Malong (77).
Hoffenheim was a Fortune Düsseldorf guest and he was left with a lesser player only in the 9th minute because defender Benjamin Hübner received the red card. Despite this and the hosts’ early lead through Rouen Hennings (5), Hoffenheim succeeded in turning things around with goals from Moanes Dabour (16) and Steven Zuber (61).
Still, Fortuna Düsseldorf came to a 2-2 draw, and Rouwen Hennings was the scorer again from the penalty spot in the 76th minute.
Leipzig took the lead at home against the last-placed Paderborn with a goal from Patrik Schick (27), but he was left with a player less in the 43rd minute since the French defender Dayot Upamecano was given the second yellow card. The guests equalized with a goal by Christian Strohdiek (90 + 2) in the referee’s compensation.
The day before, Freiburg beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 1-0 at home in the first game of the 30th round. Tonight will face Borussia Dortmund – Hertha, and Sunday Werder – Wolfsburg, Union Berlin – Schalke, and Augsburg – Cologne.
