An eventful Bundesliga matchday saw Borussia Dortmund slip to fifth place, while Union Berlin dropped to the bottom of the standings.
Borussia Dortmund made it three games without a win in the Bundesliga, as they suffered a 2-1 defeat away to VfB Stuttgart. It was an utterly dominant performance from the home side, and Serhou Guirassy marked his return from injury by scoring the winning goal after Deniz Undav had canceled out Niclas Füllkrug’s opener.
RB Leipzig replaced the struggling Borussia Dortmund in the top four after late goals from Loïs Openda and Christoph Baumgartner helped them claim a 3-1 win over SC Freiburg. Merlin Röhl had earlier equalised for Freiburg after Xavi Simons’ opener.
Union Berlin extended their losing run in the Bundesliga to nine matches as they were handed a 4-0 defeat by Bayer Leverkusen. Goals from Alejandro Grimaldo, Odilon Kossounou, Jonathan Tah and Nathan Tella helped the high-flying league leaders send Union Berlin to the bottom of the Bundesliga standings.
Harry Kane made history as Bayern Munich survived a scare to beat Heidenheim 4-2. The England captain scored a brace to become the first player to score 17 goals in the first 11 games of a Bundesliga season, before Tim Kleindienst and Jan-Niklas Beste scored to bring the newly promoted side back on level terms in stunning fashion.
But Raphael Guerreiro restored Bayern’s lead soon after, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting added a fourth to make sure of the three points.
Eintracht Frankfurt managed to come from two goals down to rescue a 2-2 draw away to Werder Bremen. Goals from Marvin Ducksch and Rafael Santos Borré helped Bremen open up a two goal lead, before Ellyes Skhiri and Hrvoje Smolčić rescued a point for the Eagles.

FC Augsburg maintained their unbeaten run under new head coach Jess Thorup, as Ermedin Demirović cancelled out Wout Weghorst’s opener to rescue a 1-1 draw against TSG Hoffenheim.
Davie Selke helped FC Köln earn a 1-1 draw away to VfL Bochum, who had taken the lead through Lukas Daschner in the first-half. Mainz 05 began life after Bo Svensson with a goalless draw against Darmstadt.
