The forthcoming top of the table clash at Signal Iduna Park has absorbed the country and even this weekend's fixtures failed to live up to the drama of Wednesday.
There were four draws; wins for FC Bayern and Dortmund, as well as, another four-goal rout for Stuttgart.
Here is the best of the action from Week 29:
SC Freiburg 2-2 FC Nurnberg: Christian Streich's Freiburg continued to pick up points in the ruckrunde after coming from two goals down to draw 2-2.
Nurnberg's young midfielder Daniel Didavi curled home a splendid strike on eight minutes before Tomas Pekhart reacted first from a corner-kick to bundle the ball home on the stroke of half-time.
But the Swabians fought back early in the second half with midfield talent Daniel Caligiuri continuing his excellent scoring run from the penalty spot on 53 minutes.
And the equaliser came through Freiburg skipper Cedric Makiadi who volleyed home from 15 yards with 17 minutes remaining.
Kaiserslautern1-2 Hoffenheim: Krassimir Balakov's men are certainly on their way to the second division after losing 2-1 at home to Hoffenheim.
Bosnian Sejad Salihovic rarely misses from the penalty spot and on 26 minutes he added another to his collection with an emphatic finish.
Boris Vukcevic, a rising star of German football, added his fifth goal of the season on 72 minutes before Kaiserslautern picked up a late consolation through Alexander Bungera.
FC Bayern 2-1 FC Augsburg: In the Bavarian derby, Augsburg put up a spirited fight against Bayern with the 2010 champions coming out on top.
Talisman Mario Gomez was off the mark inside 60 seconds with a good finish from close range to take his tally to 24.
But Jos Luhukay's side were in impressive form of late and hit back after Axel Bellinghausen capitalised on a mistake from Holger Badstuber to set-up South Korean Koo who drilled past Manuel Neuer for his fourth goal since joining from Wolfsburg.
Augsburg goalkeeper Simon Jentzsch was a busy man between the sticks but he couldn't stop Mario Gomez rolling home from a few yards out after good wing-play from Arjen Robben.
FC Bayern remain three points behind Borussia Dortmund ahead of that all-important clash in the Ruhr on Wednesday.
Wolfsburg1-3 Borussia Dortmund: The league-leaders and champions were in effective form in lower Saxony with a 3-1 win at the Volkswagen Arena.
After a quiet spell on the scoring front, Polish striker Robert Lewandowski increased his scoring record to 19 in 29 games with a brace on 29 minutes and in injury time.
But Ilkay Gundogan stole the show with a superb long-range effort with his second goal in three weeks as Dortmund cruised to victory –despite, conceding to Mario Manduzkic's 12 goal of the campaign on 62 minutes.
VfB Stuttgart 4-1 FSV Mainz: Bruno Labbadia's men have been in excellent form and they added another four goals to their impressive goal record against Mainz.
But they had to come from behind when Andreas Ivanschitz slotted home from the spot on three minutes after a foul on Baumgartlinger.
Hungarian midfielder Tamas Hajnal equalised just five minutes later with a curling left-foot effort from the edge of the box.
Stuttgart had to wait until four minutes after the break when Gokotu Sakai's charged down the right-hand side and crossed for the flying Vedad Ibisevic who bulleted home a header from a few yards out.
A quarter of an hour later, Serbian Zdravko Kuzmanovic showed composure to score from the penalty spot and Ibisevic took his tally to 7 in 10 with another goal on 86 minutes.
Cologne1-1 Werder Bremen: Over 45,000 turned up at the Rhein-Energe-Stadion in Cologne to show support to under-fire coach Stale Solbakken.
But they went behind to Werder Bremen, another club in a horrific patch of form, through Markus Rosenborg who headed home from Marko Marin's cross.
Cologne looked the stronger of the two sides and equalised on 39 minutes through Ammar El Jammal's first goal of the season.
Borussia M'Gladbach 0-0 Hertha BSC: After an incredible 12 months under Lucien Favre, The Foals have been miles off the pace in recent weeks and could only manage a draw against struggling Hertha.
Gladbach will likely qualify for the Champions League next season but vast improvements will be required in the coming weeks with Stuttgart hot on their heels.
Schalke 04 3-0 Hannover 96: Both teams were disappointingly knocked out of Europe to Spanish opposition with no German teams able to reach the last eight of the UEFA Europa League.
And Schalke rubbed salt into the wounds of Hannover with a thumping 3-0 win at the Veltins Arena on Sunday.
Spanish striker Raul scored his 77th European goal in midweek and added another brace in the Bundesliga with his 13th of the campaign.
There was no way 'Die Konigsblauen' would score three goals without 'The Hunter' adding his name to the scoresheet, taking his tally for the season to 43.
Hamburg1-1 Bayer Leverkusen: Struggling HSV picked up their fourth point from the last two matches with a 1-1 draw against Bayer.
Sami Hyypia and Sascha Lewandowski were in charge after Robin Dutt parted company with sporting director Rudi Voller in midweek.
But Hamburg looked the better team in a lacklustre match with Mladen Petric putting the hosts a goal up at half-time from the penalty spot.
Rothosen's season was effectively summed up in Leverkusen's equaliser with three clearances falling straight to a Bayer player and Andre Schurrle finally got the ball over the line.
Player of the week:
Vedad Ibisevic (Stuttgart) –The Bosnian international striker has proven to be an absolute bargain for Stuttgart after a £5m transfer from TSG Hoffenheim in January. The hitman has seven goals in 10 games and has slotted perfectly into Labbadia's 4-2-3-1 system. He scored another two at the weekend for the Swabians.
