The Top 5 Players in the Bundesliga This Weekend

Round 22 of the Bundesliga saw little change in the top half of the table, as Bayern Munich, Dortmund and Leverkusen all recorded wins while Freiburg and Hamburg edged closer to fourth-placed Frankfurt in their bids for a spot in the 2013-14 Champions League playoffs.

Further down the table, dreams that Schalke and Gladbach had of finishing in the top four took another hit as both sides failed to capitalize on Frankfurt's loss by dropping points. They both stand seven points behind Die Adler, with Freiburg, Hamburg and Mainz between them and the coveted fourth spot.

Individually there were some excellent displays in the Bundesliga over the weekend. While Bayern's win in Wolfsburg was more of a team effort, Dortmund benefited from a Marco Reus hat trick and strong performances from a select few others.

Leverkusen's victory also required a bit of individual flare, as Stefan Kiessling played a part in both his team's goals in their narrow 2-1 win against Augsburg. Elsewhere, Michel Bastos and Nils Petersen both were on target twice, although the Brazilian's Schalke were only held to a draw while Petersen's Bremen succumbed to defeat at the hands of Freiburg.
