Bayern Munich's four-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga table over Bayer Leverkusen at the start of Week 16 leaves them assured of entering Week 17 as the team on top. 

Of course, with a match against 13th-place Werder on tap, Munich shouldn't be walking away with anything less than three points anyway.

On top of that, the two teams directly behind Munich in the table will be busy battling each other. 

Borussia Dortmund will host Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday at Signal-Iduna-Park. Dortmund can't let this opportunity pass. Trailing Leverkusen by three points in the table, Dortmund must use the home pitch to help send Leverkusen to defeat. 

That match highlights a Saturday packed with action. Six matches are scheduled for Saturday, and they will be followed up by two on Sunday. 

On Friday, Nurnberg and Mainz got Week 16 action underway. Check out the latest table and then a recap for the completed action.

Nurnberg's Per Nilsson netted a goal in the fifth minute to delight the home fans at Grundig-Stadion. Those fans are certainly anxious for something to cheer about. 

Nurnberg entered this match still looking for their first win of the season. For most of Friday, it looked like they were going to get it. 

With aggressive and effective play, Nurnberg showed some of their best form all year.

At match's end, they had controlled 61 percent of possession, made two more tackles and had five less fouls. It was all for naught, however. Well, all for a single point, I suppose. 

Shinji Okazaki netted an equalizer in the 75th minute for the game's final score. 

The point wasn't enough to push Nurnberg out of the bottom two. It was enough to help Mainz overtake Hertha Berlin for seventh.
