Borussia Dortmund settled with Bochum 3-0 on Saturday afternoon after a strong first half. Bayern also won, although it was a bit more difficult. It became 2-3 at Hertha BSC. In addition, there were 3 more games in the Bundesliga. Check out the reports below!
Borussia Dortmund – VfL Bochum 3-0
The low-ranking Bochum was no match for Borussia Dortmund, where Donyell Malen started in the starting lineup. But it was mainly the big Youssoufa Moukoko show during the first half. The only 17-year-old German made the 1-0 and 3-0 before halftime. Giovanni Reyna, two years older, took the 2-0.
Dortmund believed it after the break. The big change started halfway through the second half, allowing Marco Reus to make playing minutes again after an injury. The score remained the same as the halftime score: 3-0.
Hertha BSC – Bayern Munich 2-3
What a crazy first half in the match between Hertha and Bayern! The visitors from Munich already had a comfortable 0-3 lead in the 38th minute thanks to a goal from Jamal Musiala and 2 hits from Eric Choupo-Moting. But at halftime the team from Berlin, with Jean-Paul Boëtius in the base, was completely back in the game: via goals from Dodi Lukebakio and Davie Selke it was suddenly 2-3.
The record champion got off to a strong start in the second half, but that soon faded. Hertha still scored an own goal, but it was disallowed for offside in the run-up to the goal. The Berliners also claimed a penalty in the dying seconds, but the arbiter quickly waved that off. That’s how it stayed 2-3.
Hoffenheim – RB Leipzig 1-3
It was of course the absolute star player of RB Leipzig who gave his team the lead on a visit to Hoffenheim. Christopher Nkunku shot the ball right into the left corner. Later Dani Olmo thought he could also add a goal to his total, but the VAR saw that someone was offside in the attack on the way to the goal. His goal was therefore disallowed.
Shortly after the break, Georginio Rutter signed for the equalizer for Hoffenheim. Leipzig had to step it up a notch, so they put their secret weapon to use again. Nkunku made the 1-2 and moments later Olmo was also able to score a valid goal. He determined the final score at 1-3.
FC Augsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt 1-2
Augsburg started energetically against Eintracht. Within a minute, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw’s team put the 1-0 on the scoreboard through a goal by Mergim Berisha. But more than 10 minutes later Sebastian Rode scored the equalizer and both teams could in fact start again. Augsburg and Frankfurt both had chances, but they didn’t become very dangerous.
In the end it was Frankfurt that attracted the competition. Ansgar Knauff made the decisive 1-2 for last season’s winner of the Europa League.
1. FSV Mainz 05 – Wolfsburg 0-3
Although Mainz had the most chances together, it was Wolfsburg that opened the score somewhat undeservedly. Patrick Wimmer was able to finish easily on a pass from Felix Nmecha. Micky van de Ven was back in the starting line-up for the away team. At halftime the score was 0-1.
After the break, Wolfsburg was able to lead to an easy 3-0 victory thanks to goals from Maximilian Arnold and Ridle Baku.
