Local rivals Borussia Dortmund and Schalke played out a goalless draw in the Ruhr derby, as Bayern Munich cantered to their 24th German Bundesliga title. Pride and second spot was up for grabs in the 144th Revierderby, but neither team could make a breakthrough.
In-form Wolfsburg enhanced their own top four hopes with a 3-1 win at Werder Bremen. Junior Malanda and Ivan Perisic scored in the first ten minutes to give the visitors control. Sebastien Prodl pulled a goal back six minutes later, but Maximilian Arnold made the points safe for Wolfsburg ten minutes from time.
At the other end, bottom club Eintracht Braunschweig picked up a crucial three points with victory over European hopefuls Mainz - again by 3-1. Dominick Kumbela's 18th minute goal gave Braunschweig the lead but Nicolai Muller levelled two minutes later.
However, Havard Nielsen restored the home side's advantage just before the break, before Kumbela got his second and his team's third 13 minutes from time to move Braunschweig to within three points of safety. Mainz, who would have gone joint fourth with victory, remain seventh as a result of this setback.
