Didn’t have a chance to watch all five early Bundesliga games this Saturday? Not to worry, Jack Grimse has a comprehensive recap here.
Bayern Munich 3-1 FC Ingolstadt:
The Matchday started with a shock as Ingolstadt took an 8th minute at the Allianz Arena. Bayern haven’t lost during Oktoberfest in 6 years, and that streak remains in tact thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s equaliser five minutes later, Xabi Alonso’s thunderbolt. Rafinha put the exclamation point on the victory with six minutes to go, meaning Ingolstadt still haven’t won away since 19 September of 2015.
Borussia Dortmund 6-0 SV Darmstadt 98:
Thomas Tuchel’s Borussia Dortmund seem to be in top gear already. On Wednesday in the Champions League they scored six goals in Warsaw, and scored another six today at the Signal Iduna Park. Gonzalo Castro netted twice in a Man of the Match performance, and Adrián Ramos, Christian Pulisic, Sebastian Rode and Emre Mor had one apiece.
Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 Bayer 04 Leverkusen:
Chicharito scored his first Bundesliga goal of the season, but also struck the post in the 87th minute from the penalty spot after Julian Brandt was brought down. Frankfurt were the stronger side, with goals from Alex Meier and Marco Fabian making the difference.
Hamburger SV 0-4 RB Leipzig
It’s all coming together for Leipzig early in the season, with more encouraging play coming from new signing Timo Werner, who was at the double. Emil Forsberg had opened the scoring, and Davie Selke added a late goal to make it 4-0.
TSG 1899 Hoffenheim 0-0 VfL Wolfsburg
Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg was the only match of the day that failed to provide a goal. Despite the lack of entertainment, Julian Nagelsmann will be happy with his side’s ability to get another point from yet another draw, their third in as many games. Wolfsburg remain unbeaten after drawing for the second time of the season.
