Werder Bremen draw a 1-1 draw. In the standings Bayern Munich remains leader.

Bayer Leverkusen thought they were doing the hard part by opening the scoring thanks to Leon Bailey (27th) against Arminia Bieleld, but a ball from Lukas Hradecky allowed the promoted to equalize (47th). Ultimately, it was the Austrian Aleksandar Dragovic who snatched the victory late in the match for Bayer (88th). In the standings, Leverkusen moved up to second place one point behind Bayern Munich. Borussia Mönchengladbach missed out on Augsburg. Long in the lead thanks to a goal from Florian Neuhaus, the Fohlen were joined on a goal from Daniel Caligiuri (88th).
