Shinji Kagawa fired the winner for Borussia Dortmund to beat Mainz 2-1 and move closer to defending its Bundesliga title following Bayern Munich's earlier loss Saturday.
Kagawa scored in the 77th minute, three minutes after former Dortmund striker Mohamed Zidan had equalized for Mainz with his fifth goal in consecutive games since his winter transfer from the defending champion.
Jakub Blaszczykowski put the home side in front in the 26th, with an unstoppable shot to the top left corner from the edge of the penalty area.
Dortmund is seven points ahead of Bayern with 10 rounds left to play after Sunday's games.
Bayer Leverkusen beat second-placed Bayern 2-0 with two late goals from Stefan Kiessling and Karim Bellarabi to damage the visitors' title hopes.
