FC Bayern advanced and the competition cannot keep up. Wolfsburg supporters granted the first bankruptcy of the season in Hoffenheim. Leipzig creates a liberation against Hertha.

VfL Wolfsburg loses connection with FC Bayern Munich. Lower Saxony conceded their first defeat of the season on Saturday 1: 3 (1: 1) at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim and are now three points behind the Munich side in the Bundesliga table.

Bayern had already presented a 3-1 win at SpVgg Greuther Fürth on Friday. Runners-up RB Leipzig took a step out of the crisis with a 6-0 (3-0) victory over Hertha BSC. It was only the second win of the season in the sixth game. The Rhenish clubs Bayer Leverkusen and 1. FC Köln also play a good role. Leverkusen won 1: 0 (0: 0) against FSV Mainz 05, Cologne, who almost fell, won 1: 1 (1: 1) at Eintracht Frankfurt, participants of the Europa League. 1. FC Union Berlin achieved a late 1-0 (0-0) victory over Arminia Bielefeld.

Wolfsburg cannot maintain leadership

Wolfsburg took the lead through international Ridle Baku (25th), but André Kramaric (45 ° + 2), Christoph Baumgartner (74th) and Pavel Kaderabek (81st) turned the game around. The scenery in Sinsheim was again disappointing. With 8,523 visitors, Hoffenheim once again remained well below the approved mark of 15,075 fans. In the first two home games, TSG did not exceed 10,000 spectators.

In Leipzig, after goals from Christopher Nkunku (16th), Youssuf Poulsen (23rd) and Nordi Mukiele (45th + 3), the game was almost decided at half-time. Then it was a terrible day for Emil Forsberg’s Berliners with a penalty (60th), again Nkunku (70th) and Amadou Haidara (77th). Hertha proved once again to be the favorite rival of the Saxons, who did not score more wins or more goals against any other Bundesliga team. For coach Pal Dardai’s team it was the bankruptcy of the fourth season and the second total failure after the 0: 5 in Munich.

Wirtz with a historic door

Leverkusen’s youngster Florian Wirtz scored a historic goal. The 1-0 win against Mainz makes him the youngest player in league history with ten goals. Wirtz turned 18 years and 139 days on Saturday. The previous record was held by world champion Lukas Podolski, who was 18 years and 353 days old when he scored his 10th goal in 2004.

Podolski’s former club Cologne were also a nasty opponent in Frankfurt and even took the lead through Ellyes Shkiri (14th), but new signing Rafael Santos Borré brought Eintracht back into play with his first goal (45th + 6th). At the time, Luca Kilian was no longer in the game after a collision with his own goalkeeper Timo Horn. It was one of many injury interruptions in competitive play.

Union player Timo Baumgartl was also hit more severely by injuring his head or neck. The 25-year-old defender had collided with Bielefeld’s forward Fabian Klos and had to be treated on the field for several minutes. It is even said that he was unconscious for a short time. He was then carried off the court on a stretcher with a collar around his neck. So he no longer got Kevin Behrens’ famous winning goal (88th).
