Record: youngest professional with 10 goals
In Dortmund, the district derby was quickly decided. At 17 years and 350 days old, Youssoufa Moukoko scored the lead in the eighth minute and his tenth Bundesliga goal. He is now the youngest player to score that many goals, replacing Leverkusen’s Florian Wirtz, who was 18 years and 145 days old when he scored his tenth goal. After Giovanni Reyna (12′) made it 2-0 with a penalty kick, teenager Moukoko scored his eleventh goal (45′ + 2′).
Everything was ready for the return of captain Marco Reus in the second half. The 33-year-old suffered a ligament injury in his ankle in mid-September and suffered setback a month later after a brief comeback. Edin Terzic introduced the coach in the 67th minute.
set back after less than one Minute
Fans of the freshly crowned round of 16 of the Champions League from Frankfurt, who are used to success, had an initial dampening: after less than a minute, Eintracht were 0-1 down in Augsburg. Mergim Berisha scored for FCA. Eintracht captain Sebastian Rode equalized in the 13th minute before Ansgar Knauff scored to make it 2-1 in the second half (64th).
Away victory despite Werner’s failure
Timo Werner’s injury and the imminent departure of chief executive Oliver Mintzlaff have not made the professionals at RB Leipzig crazy. At Hoffenheim, Christopher Nkunku took the lead in the 17th minute with a goal to be seen. Twice as bitter for the hosts: World Cup candidate Grischa Prömel had to leave early, evidently having seriously injured his ankle. However: Georginio Rutter equalized for Hoffenheim in the 50th minute. It didn’t last: Nkunku (57th) and Dani Olmo (69th) secured Leipzig’s first away league win after eight games.
In Mainz, the 1. FSV actually determined the events. The goal was scored by guests from Wolfsburg. Patrick Wimmer took the lead in the 33rd minute. Maximilian Arnold (70th) lifted the ball against the struggling Mainz team with a fluttering ball. Ridle Baku (84th) set the final point, but as a former Mainzer he held back with cheering. Due to the victory, Lower Saxony finished one point behind Rheinhessen in the table.
