We are usually used to having full rounds in the German league in goals and action, but today (Saturday) there was actually a much more solid round with seven goals in five games, in which stumbles of senior teams were also recorded. Those who can take advantage of this are Bayern Munich and Leverkusen in a battle between them later. Leipzig recorded a very disappointing 0: 0 against Cologne, while Mönchengladbach lost 2: 1 to Hoffenheim, where Moanes Dabour came off the bench in the 71st minute.
Leipzig – Cologne 0: 0
Julian Naglesman’s side have been unable to continue with their positive Bundesliga streak against the bottom team, thus allowing their top rivals to move away. Amado Heidara’s goal in the third minute was disqualified after a VAR check and a different identification. The host came in no less than 14 situations (six per frame), and was unable to find the network.
Mönchengladbach – Hoffenheim 2: 1
The Israeli striker’s team, Moanes Dabour, needed a win to get away from the red line after two consecutive league losses and a really bad period at the local factory. The foals on the other side with a fourth league game in a row without a win, after three draws, and the top team moves away.
After a very rhythmic half hour, the locals took the lead with a goal by Lars Stindel on an accurate penalty (34). In the second half the Blues woke up a little more and equalized thanks to a goal by Andrei Krameric (75). Four minutes later Marcus Toram was sent off with a direct red card, and Ryan Sassanion completed a makeover in the 86th minute with a superb kick to the net.
In other games, Frankfurt defeated Augsburg 0: 2 and the unfortunate Schalke also lost to Arminia Bielefeld with 1: 0 in the bottom battle. Also, Werder Bremen interrupted their four-loss streak with 0-1 over Mainz from a goal by 19-year-old Arn Dinchi in the 90th minute.
