Soccer-Dortmund stay third despite Augsburg draw

BERLIN, May 13 (Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund kept the upper hand in the battle for third place despite a 1-1 draw at Augsburg on Saturday as they stayed ahead of fourth-placed Hoffenheim on goal difference on a frantic penultimate matchday of the season.

Dortmund are level on 61 points with Hoffenheim, who crushed Werder Bremen 5-3, but have a better goal difference going into the last matchday next week.

Champions Bayern Munich showed who is boss in the Bundesliga, scoring three times late in the game to win 5-4 at second-placed RB Leipzig in a free-flowing game with the Bavarians having secured the title two weeks ago and the hosts certain of second place.

Hamburg SV continued their battle to avoid relegation by scoring a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Schalke 04. The result kept Hamburg in the relegation playoff spot but sent 17th-placed Ingolstadt into the second division, joining already-relegated Darmstadt 98.
