Claudio Pizarro scored a hat trick as Werder Bremen came from behind to defeat Cologne 3-2 in the Bundesliga on Saturday, and defending champion Borussia Dortmund routed Wolfsburg 5-1.
Christian Clemens and Lukas Podolski put Cologne 2-0 up at the break. Pizarro pulled one back after a goalmouth scramble in the 49th, equalized with a penalty five minutes later _ after Cologne had a player sent off _ and sealed the win in the 86th.
Dortmund, Bremen and Borussia Moenchengladbach, which won 2-1 at Hertha Berlin, are all two points behind leader Bayern Munich. Bayern visits relegation-threatened Augsburg on Sunday.
Also Saturday, Freiburg won at Nuremberg 2-1 and Hoffenheim drew with Kaiserslautern 1-1.
Bayer Leverkusen hosted Hamburger SV later Saturday.
