Bundesliga round-up: Bayern's surprise draw, Schalke FINALLY get a breakthrough

Is the Bundesliga title race finally done and dusted?

Well, a week ago, it seemed like it. Bayern had moved seven points clear. And if history is any precedent, die Roten were clear as no team have been able to come back after falling seven points behind.

But after this latest round concluded, Bayern had slipped up, allowing RB Leipzig to claw two points back. Does this mean die Roten Bullen have a shot?

Let's have a look at what happened over this weekend's round of fixtures.

Top five teams in the Bundesliga up to April 13

Bayern finally dropped points over the weekend...but will it be enough to give Leipzig any glimmer of hope of forcing their way back into the title race?

Who are the top three scorers in the Bundesliga?

Robert Lewandowski has reportedly returned to individual training as he seeks not only to defend his Torjägerkanone prize but also to beat Gerd Muller's long-standing record. He needs to score at least five more goals between now and May. Meanwhile, Frankfurt's Andre Silva continues to have a fantastic season, but he's not going to be able to catch the Polish ace this time around

Schalke FINALLY get a break...but is it too little too late: Schalke won a game over the weekend. That's right, after three months, die Königsblauen won a game. Suat Sedar's solitary goal was enough to give them all three points over Augsburg, but they're still bottom of the table. Is it too little, too late?

Top Bundesliga matches: April 16-18, 2021

RB Leipzig vs Hoffenheim: After their crucial win, Leipzig are now five points behind Bayern. Can they apply even more pressure on the reigning champions with a win on Friday?

Gladbach vs Frankfurt: The visitors continue to maintain their impressive form as they chase a historic Champions League berth. Currently in fourth spot, die Adler could rise into third if Wolfsburg lose to Bayern and they can beat Gladbach, who seem to have finally found their footing after a rough period.

Frieburg vs Schalke: Will the visitors, who finally won a match for the first time in three months, be able to do what they haven't been able to do all season - and win a game on the road?

Wolfsburg vs Bayern: Both teams had disappointing results last round, and both will be eager to get back on track. The visitors still have a five point lead, but could see this cut to just two by the time they take to the pitch on Saturday.
