FINAL WHISTLE AND LEVERKUSEN COACH MARKUS WEINZIERL CELEBRATING STORY: Three goals from Marco Reus gave 10-man Borussia Dortmund a 3-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday (February 16) that kept the Bundesliga champions in second spot, a point ahead of Bayer Leverkusen who defeated Augsburg 2-1. Midfielder Reus was the recipient of two defence-splitting passes early on and he sprinted clear both times to beat keeper Kevin Trapp as the hosts raced into a 2-0 lead by the 10th minute. Dortmund, without suspended striker Robert Lewandowski, had Julian Schieber sent off for a second caution in the 31st minute but felt he had been harshly judged for using his elbow on Bastian Oczipka. They then had to soak up some pressure before delivering the decisive blow in the 65th minute. It was Ilkay Guendogan's turn to slice open the Eintracht defence with a well-timed pass to Mario Goetze who advanced, lost possession but saw the ball fall to fellow Germany international Reus who converted to complete his treble and take his tally in the league this season to 11 goals. Numerical balance was restored when Eintracht's Takashi Inui received his marching orders in the 74th minute for a second yellow card for a challenge on Mats Hummels, who rolled theatrically after what appeared to be slight pull from the Japanese midfielder. Dortmund, who bounced back after last week's 4-1 defeat by Hamburg SV, have 42 points while Eintracht are fourth on 37. Runaway leaders Bayern Munich have 57 points after they won 2-0 at VfL Wolfsburg on Friday (February 15) thanks to a superb Mario Mandzukic bicycle kick and Arjen Robben's first goal of the season. The league's top scorer Mandzukic, unfazed by media reports Bayern are close to signing Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski for next season, snatched his 15th goal of the campaign in dazzling fashion in the 36th minute. Croatia striker Mandzukic climbed to score over his shoulder after Bastian Schweinsteiger nodded back Toni Kroos' freekick. Mandzukic did not celebrate his goal against the club he represented from 2010-12. Substitute Robben put the result beyond doubt when he ran into space before controlling Thomas Mueller's cross and drilling the ball in from six metres in stoppage time at the end of the game. Striker Stefan Kiessling scored one goal and laid on another as Leverkusen, third on 41 points, sank Augsburg. Kiessling headed in a Gonzalo Castro free kick in the 26th minute to join Mandzukic as the Bundesliga's top scorer this season on 15 goals. The forward, who has been regularly snubbed by Germany coach Joachim Loew, also set up Lars Bender for the second goal in the 75th minute as Leverkusen won for the first time in four games. Sascha Moelders grabbed a deserved consolation goal for the visitors in the 89th minute.
