Video Highlights: Bundesliga Week 20

Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund returned to winning ways with an impressive 3-0 victory at Wolfsburg. Jurgen Klopp's side, held to a 1-1 home draw by second-bottom Stuttgart last weekend, got off to the perfect start when Lucas Barrios put them ahead with just two minutes on the clock. Nuri Sahin added a second five minutes before half time and Mats Hummels rounded off the triumph in the 71st minute.

Bayern Munich came from behind to defeat Werder Bremen 3-1 and move up to third in the Bundesliga. Per Mertesacker scored at both ends, first putting Bremen ahead in the 47th minute and then putting Bayern in front in the 75th after Arjen Robben had equalised. Miroslav Klose then sealed the win for Louis van Gaal's side as they moved up to their highest league position of the season, still 14 points behind current leaders, Dortmund.

Schalke missed a chance to pull closer to the European spots in the Bundesliga as they lost at 1-0 home against Hoffenheim after a lacklustre showing. Hoffenheim bounced back from their 1-0 loss at Energie Cottbus in the German Cup quarter-finals with Isaac Vorsah scoring the game's only goal after just four minutes.

Charles Takyi scored two goals as St Pauli climbed out of the Bundesliga relegation places with a well-earned 3-0 home victory over Cologne. Takyi struck in the 30th and 36th minutes for a 2-0 lead and then substitute Florian Bruns added a third with a 76th-minute penalty.

Timmy Simons scored one goal and set up another as Nurnberg earned an impressive 2-0 victory at home over 10-man Hamburg to remain well clear of the Bundesliga relegation zone. The Belgian converted a penalty in the 59th minute and Almog Cohen made it 2-0 after 70 minutes. Gojko Kacar was sent off for Hamburg in the 69th minute.

Lewis Holtby's first-half goal was enough to push Mainz back into fourth place after they held on for a narrow win against Kaiserslautern. Holtby scored the game's only goal in the 23rd minute, giving Thomas Tuchel's team their first victory of the year.
