A seven goal thriller in the BayArena as Bayer and BVB push each other all the way. BVB came away with all 3 points after a 4:3 victory, and another fantastic performance for Erling Haaland. Dortmund have recovered from their loss to Freiburg to win either side of the International break, but the amount of goals they have been conceding is troubling.
Dortmund and rivals Bayern are the top scorers so far with 13 goals scored, however Bayern have only conceded 4. Dortmund have allowed 9 goals so far, only three others in the division have conceded the same or more so far. Stuttgart with 9, Hertha and Fürth with 11. Wolfsburg continued their winning start to the campaign with a 2:0 away victory to Fürth, the only team in the German top flight yet to drop a single point.
Saturday also saw the return of new Bayern head coach Julian Nagelsmann to his former club Leipzig. Joining him was new signing Marcel Sabitzer, who also left the Red Bull franchise this summer. Sabitzer nearly scored on his Bayern debut against his former club but was denied, in the end FCB won pretty easy with a 4:1 win. Konrad Laimer’s consolation goal, however, was quite an exquisite one.
Sunday wound down the action with a 1:1 draw between Frankfurt and Stuttgart, Hertha’s first points of the season after a 3:1 win away at Bochum and Monchengladbach winning 3:1 at home to Bielefeld.
