BORUSSIA DORTMUND REMAIN five points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich after a come-from-behind win away to Augsburg on Sunday evening.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are, statistically, the best team in the league right now and haven’t lost a game since 19th December. They’ve picked up 26 top-flight points from a possible 30 since the start of the year.

With seven games to go, there are still plenty of points on the table but Bayern remain in control, despite wobbling slightly throughout March.

They lost at home to Mainz, were held scoreless by Dortmund and were put through the wringer midweek against Juventus.

On Saturday, they squeezed past Cologne thanks to a 10th-minute strike from Robert Lewandowski.

Dortmund were without headline act Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang against Augsburg due to the recent death of his grandfather and they struggled for much of the first half.
