Week 21 of the 2015-16 Bundesliga season is in the books, and Pep Guardiola‘s Bayern Munich are inching closer to wrapping up their 26th league title. The week started with a Friday night match between Martin Schmidt‘s Mainz 05 and Andre Breitenreiter‘s Schalke 04 at the Coface Arena. Gaetan Bussmann (33′) and Julian Baumgartlinger (79′) powered Mainz to a 2-1 victory over Schalke. Younes Belhanda scored in the 46th minute for the visitors.

A large bulk of the action took place on Saturday. At the Weserstadion, Viktor Skrypnyk‘s Werder Bremen and Julian Nagelsmann‘s TSV 1899 Hoffenheim played to a 1-1 draw on goals from Andrej Kramaric (10′) for Hoffenheim and Papy Djilobodji (13′) for the hosts.  Jurgen Kramny‘s VfB Stuttgart shut out Pal Dardai‘s Hertha Berlin 2-0 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on goals from Geoffroy Serey Die (51′) and Filip Kostic (84′).

Also securing a 2-0 victory at home were Dieter Hecking‘s VfL Wolfsburg over Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s FC Ingolstadt 04 at the Volkswagen Arena. Julian Draxler (29′) and Robin Knoche (39′) scored for Wolfsburg. Henrikh Mikhtaryan was the only goalscorer for Thomas Tuchel‘s Borussia Dortmund in their 1-0 win over Thomas Schaaf‘s Hannover 96 at the Signal Iduna Park.

Roger Schmidt‘s Bayer Leverkusen scored a 2-1 victory away to Dirk Schuster‘s SV Darmstadt 98 at the Merck-Stadion am Bollenfalltor. Sandro Wagner gave Darmstadt an early lead 28 minutes in but an own goal by Aytac Sulu in the 62nd minute combined with the match winner from Julian Brandt in the 77th secured a huge win for Leverkusen. Peter Stoger‘s 1.FC Koln defeated Armin Veh‘s Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1 at the RheinEnergieStadion. Alexander Meier gave the visitors the lead on 24 minutes before Yannick Gerhardt (29′), Dominique Heintz (57′) and Anthony Modester (72′) rallied back for the hosts.

Valentine’s Day rounded out the round’s action. A goal festival at the Volksparkstadion in Hamburg saw Bruno Labbadia‘s Hamburger SV defeat Andre Schubert‘s Borussia Monchengladbach 3-2. USMNT regular Fabian Johnson gave Gladbach the early lead 13 minutes in before an own goal from Martin Hinteregger (38′) and goals from Artjoms Rudnevs (41′) and Ivo Ilicevic (80′) gave Hamburg an insurmountable advantage. Raffael scored a late consolation goal for Gladbach in the 88th minute.

Bayern were on the road and smoked Markus Weinzierl‘s FC Augsburg 3-1 at the WWK ARENA. A brace from Robert Lewandowski (15, 62′) and an insurance strike from German national team regular Thomas Muller (78′) were enough for Bayern, while Raul Bobadilla scored a consolation goal in the 86th minute for Augsburg.
