Hoffenheim ends Bayern’s winning Bundesliga run
Question of the Day
BERLIN (AP) - Hoffenheim dampened Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga title celebrations by grabbing a 3-3 draw to end the champions’ 19-game winning run on Saturday.
Hoffenheim goalkeeper Jens Grahl preserved the draw, denying Bayern substitute Arjen Robben with three minutes remaining.
“It was a great day for us but Bayern are still beyond reach for us,” Hoffenheim coach Markus Gisdol said.
It was only the third time in 28 games that Bayern - which clinched the title with a record seven games to spare on Tuesday - dropped points this season. However, Bayern still managed to extend its record 53-game unbeaten run.
“Compliments to Hoffenheim,” Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. “We always had a solution in the first half, not in the second half. We had no control, it went here and there, and when that happens the other 17 teams are better than us.”
Marco Reus scored a hat trick for Borussia Dortmund to come from behind and win 3-2 at 10-man Stuttgart to reclaim second place from rival Schalke.
“The second half was great. We deserved to win,” said Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp, whose side visits Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Bayer Leverkusen could only draw 1-1 with bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig.
Mainz enjoyed a 3-0 win over Augsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt lost 2-1 at Wolfsburg.
In the late game, Felix Klaus’ wonderful 65th-minute strike to the far top corner clinched a 3-2 come-from-behind win for Freiburg over fellow relegation candidate Nuremberg.
Emanuel Pogatetz, who opened the scoring for Nuremberg in the sixth, was sent off with his second yellow card in injury time.
“We won a game, nothing more. We’re in a fight against the drop,” said Freiburg coach Christian Streich, whose side moved five points clear of the relegation zone.
Pep Guardiola rewarded his side for winning the Bundesliga by making several changes from the side that won 3-1 at Hertha Berlin. The Bayern coach also likely had one eye on Tuesday’s Champions League quarterfinal first leg at Manchester United.
