Watch Matchday 26 highlights between Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt.

NARRATOR: Borussia Dortmund and Eintracht Frankfurt was the marquee fixture around 26. It lived up to the billing and started ever so well. Pulisic set down the right-hand side, drops that shoulder, tries to pick up Andre Schurrle, who's [INAUDIBLE] surely should have made it 1-0. Unfortunately, Germany International steers it wide.

However, one minute later, same setup. Dahoud picks out Pulisic. He grabs his fourth assist, sets it up, nearly for Reus, but it's the wrong Reus. Marco Russ, putting it in his own net.

Marco Reus was there to tap it in, nevertheless. Dortumd will take it one goal to nil. What a start it was. Frankfurt befuddled.

We fast forward to the second half. This was a game that was-- really had a huge impact from substitutes, the free kick, and Jovic, eight minutes after coming on, grabs a huge goal. The on-loan Benfica man, a hint of an off side there, and [INAUDIBLE] 21 steers it in, his first goal in five games, his fifth of the season. That would make it 1-1.

It was looking like it was six months ago in Frankfurt, but Pulisic lays it off. Batshuayi belts it home, and 14 minutes after he came on, Big Belgian, what an imprint he is leaving in Dortmund. That would make it 2-1, and things looking good.

Dortmund take their foot off the gas, and they pay the price. Da Costa picks out Danny Blum for his second goal of the season at that far post. It looks as though Frankfurt had its share of the points, but then it was a super take.

And watch this goal from Michy Batshuayi. No mistake-- terrible defending from Frankfurt. The late game letdown, and Dortmund cruise to victory. And you can see what it means for them as they take sole possession of third place.

Here's a recap of the way things have transpired thus far. Mainz losing out to Schalke on that Caligiuri goal. Bayern Munich continued to roll, as Hannover-- they were upended by Augusburg.

We look at the bottom half of the table, and Mainz find themselves in the relegation zone. Koln, on the outside looking in. We look to the top half of the table where we find our participants today. It's Frankfurt staying in that fifth position, but Dortmund leapfrogged [INAUDIBLE] by [INAUDIBLE]. One point clear, now with eight game remaining.
