Freiburg defeated Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 and Borussia Dortmund was held 2-2 at home by Augsburg as Bayern Munich's main title rivals both faltered in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Felix Klaus scored in the last minute on a counter attack as Freiburg twice came from behind to climb provisionally out of the relegation zone.

South Korea midfielder Ji Dong-won, who will join Borussia Dortmund next season, scored Augsburg's equalizer in the 72nd, two minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Nuremberg defeated Hoffenheim 4-0 for its first win of the season, Hannover won 3-1 at Wolfsburg for its first away win, and Mainz earned a 2-1 win at Stuttgart.

Eintracht Frankfurt was hosting Hertha Berlin later Saturday.

Bayern leads second-place Leverkusen by nine points with a game in hand.
