Bayern Munich made ten changes from their UEFA Champions League win over Barcelona but still won to break the record for the number of points in a Bundesliga season, while Bayer Leverkusen won to remain in third.
A hat-trick from Marko Arnautovic was enough to see Werder Bremen leave Hoffenheim with all three points courtesy of a 4-1 victory in the Bundesliga.
Hoffenheim claimed a come-from-behind 3-1 victory at home over Hannover to grab their first win of the Bundesliga campaign.
Hoffenheim have today extended the contracts of Sejad Salihovic and Tobias Weis until 2016.
Schalke maintained their third-placed position in the Bundesliga with a 1-1 draw at Hoffenheim, who led through a Sejad Salihovic penalty but were pegged back by a Klaas Jan Huntelaar spot-kick.
Hertha Berlin are without a win in six matches, however, made sure they had a share of the points as Roman Hubnik scored in added time to clinch a 1-1 draw with Hoffenheim.
