Bundesliga Roundup: Bayern cruise past Wolfsburg; RB Leipzig’s disappointing start continues

RB Leipzig could only manage a 2-2 draw against FC Köln on Timo Werner’s return to the Bundesliga, while Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund made it two wins in two.

Matchday two of the Bundesliga season was full of goals and thrilling matches. Borussia Dortmund began the matchday by pulling off a stunning comeback against SC Freiburg and winning the game 3-1.

Christian Stretch’s side took the lead in the first half through Michael Gregoritsch, but Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, Youssoufa Moukoko and Marius Wolf scored in the final 15 minutes to secure a dramatic turnaround win for the Black and Yellows.

Joining Borussia Dortmund at the top of the table are Bayern Munich, who clinched a comfortable 2-0 win over Wolfsburg on Sunday. It was an unhappy return to the Allianz Arena for Niko Kovac, as goals from Jamal Musiala and Thomas Müller helped the defending champions maintain their strong start to the season.

Timo Werner found the back of the net on his return to the Bundesliga, but RB Leipzig were held to a 2-2 draw by FC Köln. Florian Dietz canceled out Werner’s first half opener, before Christopher Nkunku restored Leipzig’s lead. But an own goal from Josko Gvardiol saw the Billy Goats spoil Leipzig’s party.

Bayer Leverkusen’s poor start to the season also continued, as they were beaten by FC Augsburg in their first home game of the season. Fredrik Jensen gave Enrico Maaßen’s side the lead, only for Charles Aranguiz to make it 1-1. But Augsburg weren’t to be denied, and Andre Hahn scored in the 83rd minute to seal a memorable win.

A 93rd minute equaliser from Marius Bülter helped Schalke 04 earn their first point of the season, as they played out a 2-2 draw with Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Royal Blues took the lead in the first half through Rodrigo Zalazar, only for Jonas Hofmann and Marcus Thuram to turn the game on its head. But Schalke were awarded a penalty late on, which Bülter converted to ensure a share of the spoils.

TSG Hoffenheim came from two goals behind to beat VfL Bochum and claim their first win of the season. Bochum raced to a two goal lead thanks to a brace from Simon Zoller, but goals from Christoph Baumgartner and Ozan Kabak quickly helped Hoffenheim get back on level terms. Munas Dabbur then completed the turnaround in the 87th minute with a fine header.

There was also late drama in Bremen, as Oliver Burke scored in the 95th minute to rescue a 2-2 draw for his side against VfB Stuttgart. Werder Bremen took the lead early on through Niclas Füllkrug, but Stuttgart turned the game around thanks to goals from Wataru Endo and Silas Katompa Mvumpa. Burke then came off the bench and clinched a point for his side.

Eintracht Frankfurt and Hertha Berlin played out a 1-1 draw, and there were no goals in Union Berlin’s clash against Mainz 05.
