Bayern crushes Cologne with three goals from Lewandowski, Leipzig recovers and Union Berlin topples Hoffenheim

After Borussia Dortmund’s big win over Freiburg (5-1), the nineteenth day of the German League continued, on Saturday, with the traditional multiplex and five posters at 3:30 pm. At the Rhein Energy, Bayern Munich, the strong leader in the championship despite the setback he suffered against Gladbach the day before, crossed with Cologne (6, 28 points), the winner in the last three meetings. A meeting that started in the best possible way for the Bavarian since the inevitable Lewandowski quickly opened the scoring (0-1, 10) to sign his 21st goal of the season. Bayern dominated the ball in a big way, and offered themselves a break, before the end of the first half hour of play thanks to a superb half-ball signed by Tolisso (0-2, 25). Unstoppable, the Bavarian players can kill all the suspense, but Müller, though alone in front of goal, stumbled upon Schwepp (28). An exciting match where Colin thought well of reducing the score, but Uth, who had run deep, finally saw his goal disallowed for an offside position at the start of the event (31). Returning from the locker room, Rekormeister took shelter well thanks to two new achievements by Lewandowski (62, 74), author of the trilogy. Thanks to this great success (4-0), Julian Nagelsmann’s men consolidated their lead by six lengths ahead of Dortmund. Cologne drops to eighth place.

The other contender for the podium this season, Hoffenheim (3rd, 31 points) has moved to Union Park Berlin (7th place, 28 points). Unbeaten since the eleventh day and the defeat at Bochum Park (0-2), TSG wanted to continue its march forward at An der Alten Försterei. Ambition facilitated shortly after a quarter of an hour of play when a miserable Baumgartel netted an own goal and allowed the visitors to lead (0-1, 16). But Stung’s men were able to respond with a step thanks to Vogelsamer, who scored the equalizer (1-1, 22). Turning back at the break, the two formations presented a balanced scene as the capital club also found the center. Shortly before the final quarter of the hour, he did better and Brommel gave the league the lead (2-1, 73). Valuable success allowed Berlin, fourth, to return to their opponent today. In other meetings, Stuttgart (15, 18 points) had a tough time facing RB Leipzig (9, 25 points), wide winner from Mainz last weekend (4-1). An orphan of victory for more than a month, VfB also found itself quick in the lead when Silva scored a penalty (0-1, 11) after a foul by Koulibaly. Scrambled by locals, Domenico Tedesco’s men kept clean sheets and Nkunku finally completed the RBL win (0-2, 70). Seventh, Leipzig confirms its good momentum. Also note the goalless draw between Hertha Berlin and Wolfsburg, respectively 13th and 14th in the Bundesliga. Finally, Mainz won a short header over Bochum – who missed a penalty in the first term – thanks to Jeremiah Saint-Just, the only scorer in this encounter (1-0).
