The VfB Stuttgart has ended his negative series in the Bundesliga and can hope to stay in the class again. On Saturday evening, the Swabians beat Borussia Mönchengladbach 3-2 (1-2) after being 2-0 down. With the first success after nine games without a win, the Stuttgart team moved up to one point to the relegation place 16. Despite the defeat, the Gladbachers remained in 13th place, but are also still in danger of relegation.
FC Bayern has only slightly extended its lead in the table. On the 25th match day, the record champions did not get more than 1: 1 (1: 1) in the top game against Bayern Leverkusen on Saturday – the lead over Borussia Dortmund is initially nine points.
Central defender Niklas Süle (18th) scored the lead for Bayern. Thomas Müller (36th), who returned to the starting eleven after a corona infection, scored an own goal – his first in the 407th Bundesliga game.
SC Freiburg missed the leap past the Saxons in fourth place in the 1-1 (1-0) win at RB Leipzig due to a late goal. Ermedin Demirovic (38th) scored for Freiburg in Leipzig. But Angeliño (90th) equalized in the last minute of regulation time.
In the lower half of the table, Hertha BSC suffered another setback in the 1: 4 (0: 1) against Eintracht Frankfurt. VfL Wolfsburg won 1-0 (1-0) against Union Berlin.
Bochum’s own goal gives Fürth hope for a short time

Anthony Losilla (71st) brought Bochum back into the lead.
