You were spoiled for surprise results in the Bundesliga this weekend with the likes of Freiburg, Augsburg and Hamburg picking up wins at the bottom of the table.
And there was some incredible drama at the top of the table as April 11th's title clash between the top-two is perfectly poised.
Here is the best of the action from Week 28.
Borussia Dortmund 4-4 Stuttgart: Friday night's match is up there with some of the best matches in the history of the Bundesliga with eight goals scored – seven of them inside the second half.
Shinji Kagawa continued his rich vein of form with the opener on 33 minutes with Jakub Blaszczykowski adding a second just four minutes after half-time.
After squandering a host of chances, Stuttgart responded finally with 20 minutes remaining as Vedad Ibisevic produced a composed finish from 10 yards. Within the space of two minutes, the Swabians went 3-2 ahead thanks to two strikes from Julian Schieber.
The champions were rattled on their own patch by the Bundesliga's in-form side but fought back through defender Mats Hummels on 82 minutes with a thumping drive from the edge of the box.
The drama wasn't over yet as Marcel Schmelzer's corner-kick was volleyed home emphatically from super-sub Ivan Perisic with four minutes remaining. Inside the second minute of injury time, Stuttgart took advantage of a mix-up inside the Dortmund defence with Christian Gentner slamming home a left-foot shot from eight yards.
Jurgen Klopp's men could only extend their lead to six points for 24 hours – with FC Bayern up against FC Nurnberg.
Bayer Leverkusen 0-2 SC Freiburg: The south-western club made it 18 points collected since the start of the ruckrunde with a win against off-form Leverkusen.
It would eventually cost Robin Dutt his position at the BayArena with Ralf Rangnick the favourite to succeed the former Freiburg man.
His old team rubbed salt into the wounds with Julian Schuster heading in the opener on eight minutes.
Midfielder Daniel Caligiuri has been in sensational form in the second half of the season and he continued his excellent scoring-spree with a fantastic right-foot effort from 20 yards which sailed past Bernd Leno.
FC Augsburg 2-1 Cologne: Another team on the rise is Augsburg who have collected 14 points since the start of the second half of the campaign.
They kept up their excellent home record of eight unbeaten at the expense of Cologne – themselves in a difficult situation in the promotion/relegation play-off position.
Korean midfielder Koo drilled home a long-range effort on 19 minutes before Lukas Podolski added his 17th goal of the season from the penalty spot.
At the other end, Augsburg striker Rafael slotted home from 12 yards on the stroke of the interval to hand the Bavarians another crucial win in their battle for survival.
Kaiserslautern 0-1 Hamburg SV: Thorsten Fink's men are at the heart of the relegation battle but picked up a massive win at the Betzenberg.
Kaiserslautern haven't won in 18 games and look certain to drop into the 2.Bundesliga next season – despite the recent appointment of Krassimir Balakov.
And Hamburg scored the decisive goal, in front of 10,000 travelling supporters, with Marcell Jansen converting from close range after Ivo Ilicevic's effort was controversially blocked on the line.
Nurnberg 0-1 FC Bayern: In the local derby between Nurnberg and FC Bayern, the visitors were aiming to punish the league-leaders for dropping two points on Friday.
They certainly did with Dutch winger Arjen Robben scoring on 69 minutes thanks to neat work from Franck Ribery in the build-up to the goal.
Jupp Heynckes' side cut the gap at the top to five points with the two teams meeting on Wednesday April 11 at the Westfalenstadion.
Werder Bremen 0-3 FSV Mainz: The Carnival Club enjoyed a fine party at the Weser Stadion with Werder Bremen dropping out of the European places.
Mainz took the lead on 19 minutes through Hungarian striker Adam Szalai who scored his second goal of the season.
Thomas Tuchel's side secured their incredible leap up into 10th with two second-half strikes of Eric-Maxim Choupo Moting who made it double figures for the campaign.
But it means that Werder drop into eighth with just one win in six matches and only two victories in the whole ruckrunde.
Hertha BSC 1-4 VfL Wolfsburg: Felix Magath's improving side moved just one point away from a Europa League place with a superb win in Berlin.
The hosts took the lead on 13 minutes when Nikita Rukavystya's shot was parried only as far as Lenad Kobiashvilli who bundled home from a few yards out.
It was level just 16 minutes later when Hertha defender Christoph Janker converted Ashkan Dejagah's low cross into his own net.
Wolfsburg's Iranian international was involved again with another assist for striker Patrick Helmes to thump home on 33 minutes.
Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic added his 11th goal of the season in the second half to extend the lead and Helmes completed the rout late in the match.
Hannover 2-1 Borussia M'Gladbach: Europa League Quarter-Finalists put an abrupt end to Gladbach's title chase with a narrow home win.
Lucien Favre's men have been on the edge of the top-two for most of the season but look almost certainly out of contention after Sunday's defeat.
Hannover went two goals ahead inside 11 minutes of the second half with Dider Ya Konan and Mame Biram Diouf hitting the net. Gladbach's Havard Nordtveit pulled a late consolation back for The Foals.
The hosts move into fifth with European football looking possible for next season.
Hoffenheim 1-1 Schalke 04: Schalke could only manage a draw in Sinsheim after a hectic few weeks on both the domestic and continental front.
Their recent form has been fantastic but they went a goal-down when Sejad Salihovic slotted home from the spot on the half-hour mark.
Schalke keeper Lars Unnerstall had a busy first 45 minutes but the Royal Blues were in the ascendency in the second period with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar making it 41 goals for the season from 12 yards.
Player of the week:
Patrick Helmes (Wolfsburg): The former Leverkusen and Cologne striker has had a torrid time with injuries at Wolfsburg but has bounced back with a bang under Felix Magath with eight goals in 12 matches this season. The striker had been linked with a move to Rangers and Celtic in January but has become a regular under Magath with Wolfsburg chasing a European place.
