Joker Musiala with the decisive moments – third bankruptcy for Leipzig
On Saturday afternoon the spectacle between Leverkusen and Dortmund (3: 4), on evening the intense top game between Leipzig and Bayern. The runner-up RB and the record champions from Munich fought a brisk exchange, which the guests from the Isar deservedly won 4-1. The Nagelsmann-Elf struck in the crucial moments – Lewandowski converted a hand penalty (12th), which Kampl caused frivolously. And they struck right after the break – a few seconds after the restart, Joker Musiala increased the score to 2-0 (47th), before Silva’s subsequent goal was denied because the Portuguese was offside (52nd). All the more bitter that shortly afterwards Sané went one better after Musial’s pass (54th). Now it could have been very bitter for the Saxons, but the march eleven came back again through Laimer’s hammer (58th). RB wanted to start catching up, but Bayern remained stable in the overall network – even with Sabitzer, who replaced Goretzka after an hour. In stoppage time, Choupo-Moting made it 4-1. For Leipzig it was the third defeat in the fourth game, while the Munich team are second for the time being.
Haaland has the last answer – Dortmund wins after three deficit at Bayer
The duel between Bayer 04 Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday afternoon kept what it promised due to the high-class cast of both teams. Leverkusen relied on lightning-fast switching football and was twice successful. First Wirtz took the pike to Bayer leadership (9th), shortly before the half-time whistle, the young international put through to Schick, who scored the second goal for the Seoane-Elf with a low shot (45th + 1). In the meantime, however, the Borussia had been able to equalize with Haaland’s precise header (37th) – and the Norwegian almost prepared the 2-1 for BVB through Bellingham, but the Englishman’s header was collected after checking in the review area. Immediately after the restart, the wild ride continued – Brandt took the ball with the heel and hit the leather from a slightly acute angle under the bar to equalize again (49th). But just six minutes later, Diaby had another answer ready and gave Leverkusen the third lead with his right (55th). BVB rallied briefly and came through Guerreiro’s fantastic free-kick to equalize again. Shortly thereafter, Bayer’s new signing Kossounou met BVB captain Reus in the face in the penalty area, and referee Daniel Siebert went to the review area again – a penalty worth discussing for BVB. Haaland started and enforced Borussia’s first leadership in this spectacle (77th) – and this lasted until the end of the six-minute stoppage time.
Nmecha and Weghorst ice cold – Wolfsburg keeps its clean slate in Fürth as well
VfL Wolfsburg keeps its clean slate, the Lower Saxony won their fourth league game and continue to lead the table. The Van-Bommel-Elf was ice cold in their exploitation of chances at the promoted SpVgg Greuther Fürth, because Nmecha took advantage of a confusion in the middle Franconians in the defense in the 10th minute and got the opening goal. As a result, VfL played the game to the end in a controlled manner from a very strong, but hardly required defensive. Although the Fürth team became a little more pleasant in their actions in the second section, the Leitl-Elf could not spray any serious danger – except for a spectacular overhead kick from Abiama, which Casteels parried. In stoppage time Weghorst closed the sack with a penalty and made it 2-0. Fürth is still waiting for the first win of the season.
Ten and by own goal: Cologne leaves points in Freiburg
1. FC Köln remains on track and is also celebrating at SC Freiburg, which has not been defeated to date. Modeste achieved the lead for the Baumgart-Elf with a precise header in the first section (33rd) – the Frenchman thus underpinned his upward trend from the past few weeks. The FC almost increased before the break, but Uth hit the post. Only in the second round did the Breisgauers get a little more peppy on the offensive, but ultimately the prank team remained too little compelling for a long time. Then, however, Kainz flew with the traffic light card from the square (74th) and the SC smelled the morning air for the last quarter of an hour. The Streich-Elf worked their way more and more in front of the goal of Cologne and was then rewarded by an own goal by Czichos, who unluckily pushed a cross from the newly substituted Weißhaupt into his own goal.
Burkardt’s hit from the turn is enough for the Mainz team
The Mainz team celebrated their third win of the season in Hoffenheim. FSV went into the front with a nice goal from Burkardt when the striker hit from the turn with a low shot (21st). The Kraichgauer acted too cumbersome on the offensive and barely had any deals in the first section. In the second round, TSG got a little better, but FSV didn’t allow much. Rather, the Svensson-Elf made the second goal for the zero five to 2-0 final score through Joker Ingvartsen.
Zero number between Union and Augsburg – Berliners hit Alu three times
