Bayern Munich opened up a two point lead at the top of the Bundesliga standings, while RB Leipzig’s winless run continued as they were beaten by Union Berlin on matchday three.

Bayern Munich enjoyed a dream weekend on matchday three of the Bundesliga season as they continued their record breaking start to the season with a 7-0 thrashing of VfL Bochum. New signing Sadio Mané scored a brace, and Matthijs de Ligt, Leroy Sané, Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry were also on target for the defending champions.

Borussia Dortmund somehow managed to turn a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 defeat in the final six minutes of their game against Werder Bremen. Lee Buchanan, Niklas Schmidt, and Oliver Burke were on target for the newly promoted side, as the Black and Yellows imploded after the 89th minute.

RB Leipzig are still searching for their first win of the season after they were handed a shock 2-1 defeat by Union Berlin. Goals from Jordan Siebatcheu and Sheraldo Becker helped the Berliners continue their impressive start to the season.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are up to second place after beating Hertha Berlin 1-0 thanks to Alassane Plea’s first half penalty. While Mainz 05 are up to fourth after a 93rd minute winner from Jae-Sung Lee helped them beat FC Augsburg 2-1.

Eintracht Frankfurt’s winless run in the Bundesliga extended to eleven matches as they could only manage a 1-1 draw against FC Köln. Daichi Kamada opened the scoring with an excellent free-kick in the 71st minute, only for Jan Thielmann to equalise with a stunning volley eight minutes from time.
