— FOX Sports Asia (@FOXSportsAsia) March 20, 2016
Dortmund were a goal to the good against Augsburg when Gonzalo Castro doubled Thomas Tuchel’s side’s advantage on 69 minutes.
A long ball over the top was brilliantly controlled by Adrián Ramos who laid the ball off to Castro as he rushed into the box, with the midfielder depositing the ball in the right-hand corner with precision and power.
Ramos would get on the scoresheet himself in the 75th minute as Dortmund wrapped up a 3-1 victory.
4. André Schürrle (VfL Wolfsburg) vs SV Darmstadt 98
Wolfsburg are desperately trying to remain in the running for a Champions League berth, and sitting at 0-1 down after 90 minutes they looked down and out against Darmstadt.
However, André Schürrle provided late, late drama by grabbing a much-needed equaliser in the third minute of injury time. The German World Cup-winner collected the ball on the edge of the area, took a quick look at the target and fired the ball into the corner.
3. Eduardo Vargas (TSG 1899 Hoffenheim) vs Hamburger SV

Hoffenheim are well and truly in the midst of a relegation dog fight, and three points against Hamburg lifted them out of the drop zone.
The men in blue were 2-1 up when former QPR man Eduardo Vargas received the ball on the right of the box, the Chilean unleashed a scorching effort with his right foot that gave Rene Adler in the Hamburg goal no chance.
2. Robert Lewandowski (FC Bayern München) vs 1. FC Köln
Bayern’s 1-0 victory on Saturday certainly wasn’t their best performance of the campaign, but champions need to be able to win ugly at times and that’s what the Bavarians did.
There was nothing ugly about Lewandowski’s goal though. The striker pounced on a poor clearance on the edge of the area and effortlessly thumped the ball into the corner of Timo Horn’s goal.
1. Anis Ben-Hatira (Eintracht Frankfurt) vs Hannover 96

This relegation battle was a must-win clash for Frankfurt. Hannover appear all but relegated, but Frankfurt are one five teams separated by just a point and desperately looking to avoid the second relegation berth.
It was Anis Ben-Hatira who stepped up when his team needed him. The Moroccan somehow managed to get this one into the back of the net from the most acute of angles, and what an important goal it could prove to be.
