Bundesliga round-up: Thilo Kehrer earns Schalke point in Revierderby
Last Updated: 01/04/17 9:41pm
Academy graduate Thilo Kehrer earned Schalke a share of the spoils from the 150th Revierderby as Borussia Dortmund were held to a 1-1 draw.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 24th Bundesliga goal of the season put Thomas Tuchel's Champions League hopefuls on the right track after the break at the Veltins-Arena.
But 24 minutes later 20-year-old Kehrer, making only his 11th senior start for the Gelsenkirchen club, ensured honours were even with a near-post finish to open his account in blue.
Carlo Ancelotti showered praise on Robert Lewandowski after the striker's hat-trick in Bayern Munich's 6-0 thrashing of Augsburg left him level in the race to be the Bundesliga's top scorer.
The home win ensured runaway league leaders Bayern remained 13 points clear at the summit while Augsburg dropped into the relegation places.
Lewandowski, last season's Bundesliga top scorer, has 24 league goals this campaign, just like Aubameyang.
The Poland international has now scored 36 goals in all competitions for Bayern, including four hat-tricks, this season.
Lewandowski also proved he can provide goals by setting up Thomas Muller for Bayern's second, his backheel then let Thiago Alcantara stab home their fourth.
"Lewandowski did what he normally does," said Bayern coach Ancelotti, with his team now unbeaten in their last 20 games dating back to November.
"He scored three goals and set up two more, what more can I say about him?
"I am happy to have a striker like that who scores in more or less every game."
After back-to-back defeats before the international break, second-placed RB Leipzig emphatically returned to winning ways with a 4-0 romp against bottom side Darmstadt, who had midfielder Sandro Sirigu sent off.
Guinea midfielder Naby Keita, who collapsed after last month's shock 1-0 defeat to Wolfsburg, marked his return with two goals.
After Keita's opener on 12 minutes, playmaker Emil Forsberg and captain Willi Orban both netted before Keita added the fourth with 10 minutes remaining.
Denmark midfielder Thomas Delaney netted a hat-trick for Werder Bremen in their 5-2 drubbing of Freiburg to lift them up to mid-table.
Hamburg climbed out the bottom three with a 2-1 victory at home to Cologne as Lewis Holtby netted the winner in the 92nd minute.
In the evening game, Marco Fabian missed a penalty as Eintracht Frankfurt were frustrated by 10-man Borussia Monchengladbach.
When Oscar Wendt handled the ball in the Foals' box in the 78th minute, Fabian had an opportunity to score from the spot, but goalkeeper Yann Sommer guessed correctly.
Tobias Strobl was later sent off for receiving a second yellow card and the game finished goalless.
