Werder Bremen tactically defeated Mainz 05.

Hertha Berlin                          1-1                      Bayern Munich

Vedad Ibisevic 21’                                                                    Robert Lewandowski 90’+7’

 

Bayern will score if you give them the time.

Robert Lewandowski scored a really late equalizer in stoppage time for Bayern Munich to leave Berlin with a point. It was a well-deserved point for the display of the current Bundesliga champions.

After Vedad Ibisevic got on the end of the ball to give Hertha Berlin an early lead through a free kick that should have probably not been awarded, Hertha stayed organised through the match and limited Bayern Munich’s chances of getting an equalizer.

A rebound of Arjen Robben’s shot was toe-poked into the net by Lewandowski to get Bayern the late equalizer that came from a free kick that was almost from the same spot as the one that gave Hertha Berlin the lead.

 

Hoffenheim                                2-0                       Darmstadt

Hamburger SV                               2-2                       Freiburg

RB Leipzig got a victory to put a stop to consecutive defeats. Five points separate them and Bayern Munich at the top of the league standings.

At a ‘1-0’ scoreline, Thorgan Hazard missed a penalty that could have brought Borussia Monchengladbach on level terms. The penalty missed became more expensive when Timo Werner doubled the lead for RB Leipzig and at the final whistle when Borussia Monchengladbach lost by a single goal.

 

FC Koln                                      1-1                     Schalke 04

Anthony Modeste 43’                                                                 Alessandro Schopf 2’

 

Schalke could hold on to a very early lead against FC Koln. On the balance of play, both teams deserved the point they got from this fixture.
