Wolfsburg – Borussia Dortmund 1: 3 (1: 1)And Goals: 1:0 Weghorst (2), 1:1 Can (35, penalty kick), 1:2 Malen (55), 1:3 Haaland (81)
Erling Haaland hit the ball through it several times while sitting on the Dortmund bench in the first half. Haaland struggled, he would have loved to attack, take the penalty … but the Norwegian has just returned to the team after tore his muscles. It wasn’t enough for 90 minutes, so wait for it to be replaced.
Haaland came in the 73rd minute, when his teammates had already done most of the work under captain Marco Reus. An early inability led to a penalty being converted to take the lead – thanks to Donyell Malen, who put Bayern under pressure in the table, who can only advance against Arminia Bielefeld in the evening. Oh yeah, of course, Haaland still scored eight minutes after being substituted by a tackle. You can of course do this after a thigh injury.
1. FC Köln – Borussia Mönchengladbach 4:1 (0:0)And Tore: 1:0 Ljubicic (55.), 1:1 Hofmann (74.), 2:1 Uth (77.), 3:1 Duda (78.), 4:1 Anderson (93.)
Of course, congratulations to the Department of Health in Cologne! The fact that the authority agreed to fill the stadium for 1. FC Köln – despite a fourth wave – for the derby against Mönchengladbach on Saturday sparked a lot of outrage. But the saying “Et het noch jot jejange” also applies to fighting epidemics in Carnival City. and then? Dejan Ljubicic, Mark Uth, Ondrej Duda and Sebastian Anderson scored a 4-1 win for Cologne! For a short while, Funny Office also had a mask requirement on the pitch, but of course that’s no longer feasible given the course of the game. No one would have guessed that things would be so loud on the court. To what extent, officials can say later, when the virus has infected a few more.
Greuther Fürth – TSG 1899 Hoffenheim 3: 6 (1: 2)And Tore: 1:0 Leweling (22), 1:1 Bebou (32), 1:2 Rutter (40), 2:2 Tillman (46), 2:3 Rutter (58), 2:4 Bebou (62), 2:5 Meyerhofer (66, Aigentor), 3:5 Hargutta (67), 3:6 Bebo (80)
After the word ‘Tasmania’ and ‘Schalke’, which were used a lot last season, you now have to get used to the duo of ‘Tasmania’ and ‘Forth’. With the eleventh defeat in a row, the Franks took the eternal negative record holders from Berlin, and it is not at all excluded that there will be more.
The match against Hoffenheim was indicative of Fürth’s problems. He deserved the lead, then Timothy Tillman hit the post and missed the score 2-0. Instead, Hoffenheim equalized on the counter-attack, then immediately after a nice cross from national player David Raum to the lead. Second half, same picture: Tillmann equalized, Branimir Harjuta missed Fürth’s third goal, and instead Hoffenheim scored four goals, of which 2:4 again with an amazing space. Forth didn’t seem able or even unwilling to defend a lead or point over time. The results are weird results like this – but there are no points.
Hertha BSC – FC Augsburg 1: 1 (1: 0)And Goals: 1-0 Judge (40), 1:1 Grigorić (90 + 7)
It was obvious that it would be difficult for the Augsburgers in the capital. They finally won their home game against Bayern Munich a little over a week ago, and every kid now knows what coach Markus Weinzerl said: “Many teams didn’t succeed after beating Bayern.”
Weinzerl did not think that his players would be strangely late: the 40th minute, an unfortunate back pass, FCA goalkeeper Rafal Jekevich scrambled his goal, and FCA defender Robert Gomny wanted to clarify the situation himself and dribble the ball into the danger zone. Hertha player Marco Richter intervened and pushed the ball into the empty goal. Richter who played for Augsburg until the summer. It took a long time to equalize, until the 97th minute, but then Grigorić was there. The strike was preceded by loud scenes of Davy Silk falling slightly to the ground.
VFL Bochum – SC Freiburg 2:1 (0:0)And Goals: 0:1 Lienhardt (51), 1:1 Poulter (54), 2:1 Pantovich (82)
Is SC Freiburg a big team or not? If so, a strike like a tie at VfL Bochum should never go down. Freiburg had just taken the lead, with a shoulder header from Philippe Lienhardt – and then: repelled, away, just three minutes later. And Freiburg could not even save a point, losing the match in the final stages: with the next superb long-range goal by Milos Pantovic of Bochum (but this time, it was just under 66 meters against Hoffenheim). Of course, if Freiburg weren’t a top team, none of that would be tragic. Then the Supreme Committee can continue to look to third place in the table.
VFP Stuttgart – 1. FSV Mainz 05 2:1 (1:1)And Tore: 1: 0 Ito (21.), 1: 1 Hack (39.), 2: 1 Sosa (51.)
Stuttgart haven’t won six matches, grieving relegation – and now? In Friday’s match against Mainz there were two success reports in the 90 minutes. On the other hand, it turned out that two VfB pros seemed fit to score goals: in the 21st minute, Hiroki Ito slid the ball into the far corner to score his first Bundesliga goal. And also for Borna Sosa, this was the first goal in the Bundesliga when he shot from an acute angle in the 51st minute.
The second good news for the Swabians: Silas is back! After a 251-day break due to a ruptured cruciate ligament – and with a new one, this time the right identity. After scoring goals for two seasons as Silas Wamanjituka, the Congolese revealed himself as the victim of a criminal agent in June and now plays under his real name, Silas Katumba Mvumba. The 23-year-old played only a short period in the 2-1 win over Mainz, but his return gives hope to VfB: “Not only because of his quality, but also because of his personality and the positive spirit he brings with him,” says coach Pellegrino Matarazzo.
