After Union Berlin achieved a respectable victory over Borussia Dortmund and before the main game between the leader and Berkusen and champions Bayern Munich, five games were played today (Saturday) in the 13th round of the Bundesliga. R.B. Leipzig stumbled against Cologne, Moanes Dabour and Hoffenheim defeated Mönchengladbach thanks to a dramatic turnaround and Frankfurt interrupted in a very long form of games without a win. In addition, Wederer Berman and Mainz parted ways at the end of a bottom fight and Schalke lost again, this time to newcomer Arminia Bielefeld.
RB Leipzig – FC Cologne 0: 0
Knowing that the two teams above her in the table meet head to head tonight, Julian Ngelsman’s team lined up for the home game from third place in the table and with a chance to put pressure on Bayern and Leverkusen, but failed to record a third straight win in the league and as a result. The visitors stayed above the red line thanks to the point they squeezed out of Leipzig. Amado Hydara scored for the hosts in the third minute, but the goal was rightly disqualified due to a dissent.
Borussia Mönchengladbach – Hoffenheim 2: 1
Dabour and his teammates came back to win after finishing the previous two rounds empty-handed, giving the German representative in the Champions League their first loss since the seventh round of the league. Hoffenheim moved away from the red line and improved positions to 11th place, though that may vary depending on the results later in the cycle. Gladbach, on the other hand, may deteriorate towards the middle of the table. The Israeli striker came off the bench in the 71st minute, after Lars Stindel put the hosts ahead with a penalty in the 34th minute. After minutes of Dabour’s entry, Andrei Krameric equalized. Marcus Toram was sent off in the 79th minute and left Marco Rosa’s side with less player, and seven minutes later, Ryan Cessnion scored Hoffenheim’s winning goal.
Augsburg – Eintracht Frankfurt 2: 0
Eddie Hooter’s team was very close to victory in the last round, but lost a double advantage and finished with a dramatic 3: 3 against Mönchengladbach. Tonight she met the team that is ranked only one place above her, and to her delight recorded its first victory in the Bundesliga since the third round against Hoffenheim and Davor, a dry spell that lasted two and a half months. After a half-zero at Augsburg’s home, the guest found the net following an own goal by defender Rafael Fremberger. In the 87th minute came the goal that sealed the winner’s identity, when the Austrian Stefan Ilsenker scored and sealed the game.
