Bayern Munich went a point clear at the top, while Werder Bremen won 3-2.Bayern Munich moved a point clear at the top of the Bundesliga after a goalless draw at Hertha Berlin, while Werder Bremen edged a 3-2 win over Hansa Rostock.
Bavarian giants Bayern were handed the advantage in the title race on Saturday, as both Schalke and Stuttgart suffered surprise defeats.
Felix Magath's team were not able to take full advantage, however, and had to settle for a point from their trip to Berlin to face Hertha.
Bayern now go a point clear of Schalke in second and four points ahead of Stuttgart in third, although the Bavarians will feel they could have made more from their advantage.
German champions Werder moved up into fifth in the table with a 3-2 win over Hansa Rostock.
Ivan Klasnic (pictured) scored the first of his double after only four minutes, and Miroslav Klose doubled the home side's advantage just after the half-hour mark.
David Rasmussen pulled one back for Hansa on the stroke of half time, only for Klasnic to grab his second and restore Werder's two-goal cushion just after an hour.
Thomas Rasmussen again reduced the deficit just two minutes later but Werder managed to hold out to claim three vital points.
