Lienhart also scored the 1-0 lead in the 2-1 defeat of SC Freiburg in Bochum, as did Ljubicic, whose 1. FC Köln won a stormy Rhine derby against Mönchengladbach 4-1. Gregoritsch saved FC Augsburg from a 1-1 draw at Hertha BSC in the 97th minute.
Lienhart scored his third goal of the season more with his shoulder than his head in the 51st minute. In the final phase, however, the central defender slipped at a crucial moment and thus gave Milos Pantovic from the center circle the remarkable goal to make it 2-1 for Bochum.
Haaland hits on comeback
The deficit of third Freiburg on Borussia Dortmund grew to eight points, because BVB turned a 0-1 deficit at Wolfsburg into a 3-1 victory. Erling Haaland scored the final goal on his comeback after an injury break in the 80th minute in the style of a karate fighter.

From the 73rd minute, goal machine Erling Haaland made his comeback in the BVB dress – eight minutes later he made the final score from close range.

After Ljubicic’s premier goal, which hit the top corner with a volley, it was only Jonas Hofmann (74th) who equalized for Adi Hütter’s “foals”. Mark Uth (77th) and Ondrej Duda (78th) turned the sold out RheinEnergie Stadium with 50,000 spectators into a madhouse.
Louis Schaub came on a short assignment for Cologne and prepared the 4: 1 by Sebastian Andersson in stoppage time. Florian Kainz had already been replaced in the 70th minute. At Gladbach, Stefan Lainer was back on the pitch for the first time from the 81st minute after a long injury break.
