Hoffenheim dampened Bayern Munich's Bundesliga title celebrations by grabbing a 3-3 draw to end the champions' 19-game winning run on Saturday.

Anthony Modeste's 23rd-minute opening goal only seemed to rile Bayern, which responded with three goals in nine minutes from Claudio Pizarro (two) and Xherdan Shaqiri.

But Sejad Salihovic pulled one back with a brilliant free kick in the 40th and Roberto Firmino equalized in the 75th.

It was only the third time in 28 games that Bayern, which clinched the title Tuesday, dropped points this season.

Marco Reus scored a hat trick for Borussia Dortmund to come from behind and win 3-2 at 10-man Stuttgart.

Bayer Leverkusen could only draw 1-1 with bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig.

Mainz enjoyed a 3-0 win over Augsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt lost 2-1 at Wolfsburg.
