Heynckes signs off in style as Schalke seal fourth

Franck Ribéry inspired FC Bayern München to a 4-3 comeback win at VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach in Jupp Heynckes' final league game, while FC Schalke 04 cemented fourth.

Franck Ribéry was involved in all four goals as FC Bayern München overcame VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach in Jupp Heynckes' final Bundesliga match in charge – despite being 3-1 down after ten minutes.

Martin Stranzl, Mike Hanke and Havard Nordtveit had given the hosts a quick-fire lead, with Bayern's goal scored by Javi Martinez and laid on by Ribéry. Gladbach were ready to spoil Heynckes' party, but Ribéry took the game by the horns. The French international beat Marc-André Ter Stegen low at his near post to reduce the first-half arrears and then scored an outlandish volley before teeing up Arjen Robben. Bayern end the season with 91 points, ten more than the previous Bundesliga record.

Meanwhile, FC Schalke 04 cemented fourth place and a UEFA Champions League qualifying spot by beating SC Freiburg, Julian Draxler's stunner and a Julian Schuster own goal sandwiching Jonathan Schmid's strike.

Elsewhere, two Sejad Salihović penalties earned TSG 1899 Hoffenheim an unlikely win at Borussia Dortmund, offering a chance of survival via the relegation play-offs. Fortuna Düsseldorf, however, are down after dropping two places on the final day with a loss at Hannover 96. FC Augsburg eased past SpVgg Greuther Fürth to ensure survival.

In the pick of games elsewhere, Eintracht Frankfurt drew 2-2 against VfL Wolfsburg to finish sixth.
