Werder Bremen with the Czech football players Jiří Pavlenka and Theodor Gebre Selassi in the line-up drew in the 6th round of the German league 1: 1 with Frankfurt. Bayern Munich won 2-1 in Cologne and led the competition with 15 points, as did Dortmund, who won 2-0 in Bielefeld. Leipzig lost the first place, losing 0: 1 at Mönchengladbach.
Bremen took the lead in the neighbors’ duel in the first half of the table in the 51st minute after a shot by Josh Sargent, but in the 65th minute he overcame Pavlenka in the immediate vicinity of André Silva. A moment later, Bas Dost was able to complete the turn, but this time the Czech goalkeeper was saved by a pole.
Bremen was saved in the Bundesliga last season in the playoffs, but after six laps they are experiencing a successful entry into the new year. They did not lose for the fifth time in a row and so far left without a point only from the opening duel with Hertha Berlin.
Bayern started without the best Bundesliga scorer Robert Lewandowski, but in Cologne he took a two-goal lead in the first half. In the 13th minute, Thomas Müller converted a penalty kick and shortly before the break increased with a technical shot by Serge Gnabry.
The home crowd cheered when, after 82 minutes, Dominick Drexler’s charge up the middle resulted in the keeper making one of his best saves of the day. Kolín is still waiting for the premiere win of the season.
Dortmund also had to do without the biggest offensive star Erling Haaland, but the Norwegian gunner was replaced by Mats Hummels. The experienced stopper pushed through his head twice and followed up on the goal from the last league match in the derby with Schalke.
Leipzig lost in the Bundesliga for the first time this season after Wednesday’s 0-5 debacle in the Manchester United Champions League. The match in Mönchengladbach was decided after an hour of play with his first Bundesliga goal by Hannes Wolf, who has been a guest in Leipzig since summer. The winning team moved up to fourth place in the table by two points for their opponent today.
