League mainstays Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach eased minor relegation fears with Wednesday wins.

Darmstadt 0-2 Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer did what Darmstadt hasn’t done all season and won on the road. Julian Brandt and Kevin Volland scored on either side of half time, while USMNT forward Terrence Boyd played 65 minutes for the hosts.

Borussia Monchengladbach 1-0 Hertha Berlin

Nineteen year-old Slovakian midfielder Laszlo Benes scored his first Bundesliga goal for the win, while Hertha was without injured USMNT center back John Brooks.

Augsburg 2-3 Ingolstadt

It looked academic when Israeli striker Almog Cohen completed his brace to put the visitors up 3-0 in the 67th minute, but Ingolstadt had to hold on for dear life following goals from Paul Verhaegh (76') and Halil Altintop (81'). The visitors move to within four points of 16th place Augsburg.

Wolfsburg 0-1 Freiburg

Make it nine goals on the season for Florian Niederlechner, as Freiburg leapt into seventh place.

Mainz 2-3 RB Leipzig

Naby Keita stayed hot, scoring the match winner to give him seven goals and seven assists this season as Leipzig moved four points clear of third-place Hoffenheim. Mainz is now just goal differential away from the relegation playoff match.
