Bayer Leverkusen came from behind to beat St Pauli and close the gap on leaders Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga.
Bayer found themselves behind against second-from bottom St Pauli as Charles Takyi fired them ahead on the hour.
But Stefan Kiessling levelled just minutes-later before Lars Bender fired home the winner with 13-minutes left.
With Dortmund held to a draw on Saturday, Bayer are now just five points adrift.
Bottom of the table Borussia Monchengladbach gave their survival hopes a real boost as they defeated Cologne 5-1.
The Foals are now just two points off third from bottom Wolfsburg, and a further two adrift of total safety after their success at Borussia Park.
They went ahead on the half-hour when Venezuelan Juan Arango pounced, and then Marco Reus took charge as he grabbed two before the interval.
Milivoje Novakovic gave Cologne some hope with his goal on 50-minutes, but Borussia sealed a comprehensive win thanks to further efforts from Filip Daems and Havard Nordtveit.
