The matchday kicked off with the most interesting match of the round, as RB Leipzig hosted champions, Bayern Munchen. At the end, the two in-form teams shared the points, as the match ended 1-1. Former leaders, Union Berlin are back to winning ways, as they beat Hoffenheim, 3-1. The same cannot be said about former top 3 team, Freiburg, as they surprisingly lost against Wolfsburg, 6-0. FC Koln also managed to beat their opponents by 6 goals, as they beat Werder, 7-1.

Probably the most exciting match of the round happened in Dortmund, as they hosts, Borussia beat FC Augsburg 4-3, with both teams trading punches. Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen are finally back in the top 10, as they beat Gladbach 3-2, after leading at half-time.

Bayern are leaders, again and they have already gathered a 5 point lead. We do have 3 teams on 30 points, as Frankfurt, Union Berlin and SC Freiburg will all be hoping to finish top 4. Star-studded RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are all hoping for the opposite though, as they are the closest followers, on 29, respectively 28 points.

At the other side of the table, it is looking very bad for Schalke, as they are yet to hit double digits. 5 points above them, with 14 points, we have Hertha, however the likes of VfB Stuttgart and FC Augsburg are also close by.

Nkunku is first in the Top Scorers chart, he is on 12 goals. Despite Werder losing badly, Fullkrug did manage to get on the score sheet, he is now on 11, one more than Gladbach’s Marcus Thuram. Bayern’s Musiala and Freiburg’s Grifo ae both on 9.

Team of the Week

Unsurprisingly we have more than one player from the dominating teams of the round, namely FC Koln and Wolfsburg. From Koln we have Tigges, with the highest rating of the round, 9.3, Tunisian midfielder Skhiri on 9.2 and Maina on 8.7. From Wolfsburg we have midfielder Wimmer and defender van de Ven.

The team is completed by 2 players from Union Berlin, Giesselmann and Doekhl. Bochum’s Hofmann, Gladbach’s Stindl, Stuttgart’s Mavroponos and Kevin Trapp complete the team.
