In the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich has so far had a beautiful weekend and that while the listman only comes into action on Sunday. Number two RB Leipzig lost points on Saturday in the away match against VfL Wolfsburg (2-2) and the fifth place Borussia Dortmund did not pass at home by FSV Mainz: 1-1.
Leipzig arrived early on 0-1: after a nice attack, Nordi Mukiele left goalkeeper Koen Casteels without a chance. Wolfsburg gradually got better in the duel and Wout Weghorst made 1-1, his eleventh hit of this season with a nice headball.
A changed direction of Renato Steffen meant the 2-1 in the 35th minute.
Shortly after rest, Willi Orban entered the 2-2 after a big misunderstanding in the back of Wolfsburg. Leipzig was then stronger and got the best chance: substitute Justin Kluivert showed up for open purpose in the 84th minute, but didn‘t get his foot against the ball.
Weghorst was also close to a hit in the final phase, but he missed a few shoe sizes to put his toes against the ball.
Giant Misses Penalty
fact that Borussia Dortmund did not score against Mainz for peace was a small miracle. The home team got great opportunities, but found goalkeeper Robin Zentner or the pole on his way.
After rest, it was Mainz, where Jean-Paul Boëtius had a base place, which opened the score: Levin Öztunali curled the ball in the corner. With a headball on the bar Alexander Hack was close to the 0-2. Dortmund sought the attack and was rewarded with a hit shot by Thomas Meunier. A little later, Marco Reus missed a penalty on behalf of Dortmund.
Borussia Mönchengladbach, which started the sixteenth round with nine points behind Bayern Munich, thought to have found some connection with the subtop at VfB Stuttgart until the 96th minute. But the arbitrator pointed to the penalty tip in the last minute; Congolese Silas Wamangituka took advantage of the opportunity for Stuttgart: 2-2.
Due to Leipzig’s loss of points, Bayern Munich is also assured of the leading position in the Bundesliga after the 16th round. And the record champion, who also saw the number four Bayer Leverkusen squandering points on Friday, has yet to take action himself. On Sunday number eight Freiburg is the opponent in the Allianz Arena of Munich.
Little playtime for the Dutch
On the other fields there was little playing time for the Dutch. At Hoffenheim – Arminia Bielefeld (0-0) three Dutch people were only allowed to watch: Joshua Brenet and Melayro Bogarde at the home team and Mike van der Hoorn at the guests.
At FC Köln-Hertha BSC (0-0) there was a five-minute attack for Daishawn Redan at Hertha, which left Deyovaisio Zeefuik in the dug-out. Also Tahith Chong did not get any playing minutes at Werder Bremen, which won at home with 2-0 middlemoter FC Augsburg. At Augsburg there was a base place for Jeffrey Gouweleeuw.
