Freiburg – Dortmund 2-1
This early BVB setback in the title fight annoys Nati star Manuel Akanji: “If we have claims to play up for the Champions League places, that must not happen to us,” he says to “Sky”. “It can also happen that someone is really better than us. But we mustn’t lose the games like this. ”
Dortmund has more of the game – but the game in Breisgau begins with a bang from Freiburg: Vincenzo Grifo (28) circles a free kick from 25 meters past the outstretched arms of Swiss goalkeeper Gregor Kobel (23) into the crossbar. The ball not only touches the inner post, but also kisses the Freiburg fans awake. The audience in the Dreisamstadion is ecstatic. And what about BVB? He mostly has the ball, but doesn’t know what to do with it. The Freiburg show how it’s done. Ball win in midfield, lightning-fast switching game, overwhelmed back team and inside is the ball.
Akanji on the two goals conceded: «We make stupid mistakes, twice. It mustn’t happen that we invite our opponents to goals so easily. We can’t expect to score three or four goals every time. ” A sensation is emerging. BVB needs Freiburg help to arrive in this game. Yannik Keitel (21) deflects a flank into his own goal. Dortmund is gaining momentum. And Erling Haland (21)? It stays pale. The exceptional talent moves in a weaker day. The favorites miss his goals.
The goals: 6. Grifo 1: 0, 53. Sallai 2: 0, 59. Keitel (ET) 2: 1
The Swiss: Defender Manuel Akanji (26) and goalkeeper Gregor Kobel (23) play the full 90 minutes.
Leverkusen – Gladbach 4-0
An evening to forget from Gladbach’s point of view! Four goals conceded, were actually rolled over, several players (Ginter, Lainer, Pléa, Thuram) had to replace injured, scored an own goal and missed a penalty in the person of Lars Stindl – it could hardly have been worse for the foal eleven. The game is particularly bitter for keeper Yann Sommer, who was brilliant at the start against Bayern last week. As a guest at the Werkself, the national team goalkeeper is now drawing in a pitch-black day: Right at the beginning he watches a shot from distance by Bakker, sees the ball rolling into his own goal via the inside post and his own shin. When the last goal was conceded, Sommer let a shot slip through Amiris. In between he shows some strong parades, but also a lot of uncertainties – an unfortunate appearance of the veteran. His people in front are also overwhelmed – find no recipe against Leverkusen’s tempo attacks. Defensively stable, variable in attack and determined – coach Gerardo Seoane is tactically clever with his Werkself and is unbeaten with four points after two league games.
The goals: 3rd summer 1: 0 (own goal), 8th Schick 2: 0, 55. Diaby 3: 0, 87. Amiri 4: 0
The Swiss: Gerardo Seoane coaches Leverkusen to win against Gladbach with Yann Sommer and Nico Elvedi, who both play through – Zakaria and Embolo are meanwhile not in the line-up of the foals.
Hertha – Wolfsburg 1: 2
A Swiss person heats up the mood in the federal capital. A good thirty minutes have been played when Kevin Mbabu (26) goes down. There is no foul whistle. The ex-YB player no longer understands the world and immediately steps on the heels of Javairô Dilrosun (23). Dark yellow. That remains the only upsetting in this duel for a long time. Until shortly before the 60th minute. Suddenly Hertha striker Dodi Lukébakio (23) is on the ground in the opponent’s penalty area. The VAR steps in and reveals a kick from John Brooks (28). The fouled runs himself and hits safely. Wolfsburg has to convert its playful superiority into goals. Shortly before the last quarter of an hour breaks, Ridle Baku (23) redeems the green and white. He equalizes from an acute angle. In the final phase it gets even better. Mbabu with a long throw into the box. The Wolfsburg react in a flash and combine to win. The Swiss Renato Steffen (29) twirls diligently on the piano as usual. Admir Mehmedi (30) takes note of the late winning goal from the bench.
The goals: 60. Lukébakio (P) 1-0, 74. Baku 1: 1, 88. Nmecha 1: 2
The Swiss: Kevin Mbabu (26) and Renato Steffen (29) are on the starting grid. Steffen is removed from the seat after 70 minutes. Mbabu plays through and initiates the winning goal.
Bochum – Mainz 2-0
Good gracious! Nati defender Silvan Widmer and Co. look very old … The 1-0 for Bochum falls after a huge solo by Gerrit Holtmann! Served by Simon Zoller, he pulls from the left into the middle, leaves half the Mainz team standing – and then he also tunnels keeper Robin Zentner. Dream gate! And the Bochumers continue to power directly. Zollers 2-0 before the break is still canceled due to handball. In the 56th minute, however, the second hit still falls normally. Sebastian Polter nods off. And that’s it. First win of the season for the newcomer!
The goals: 21. Holtmann 1-0, 56th Polter 2-0.
The Swiss: Decarli is sitting on the bench near Bochum. Widmer plays through on the right defensive side of Mainz. Edimilson Fernandes is not on the line-up.
Greuther Fürth – Bielefeld 1: 1
Cédric Brunner and his Bielefeld team messed up the away three in Fürth! Despite the leadership of Arminia – and despite the great preparatory work of the ex-FCZ defender, who hits a mass flank on Klos. Fürth strikes back with a handheld. And when Alessandro Schöpf, who came from Schalke, flies off the field with a yellow-red in the 68th minute, it will be difficult for Bielefeld anyway. Second draw for Arminia in the second game.
The goals: 45. Klos 0: 1, 50. Hrgota (penalty) 1: 1.
The Swiss: Brunner played at Bielefeld until the 67th minute when he had to go out with suspected injury. Before that, the right-back delivers the assist to make Bielefeld 1-0.
Frankfurt – Augsburg 0-0
Frankfurt’s coach Oliver Glasner anticipated it. He and his team had to “find ways and means to break their compactness” against Augsburg. Spoiler alert: The Frankfurters have not found these ways and means. Augsburg are compact, as expected, and with Rafal Gikiewicz they have a keeper in goal that makes Frankfurt despair. So it stays with the logical 0: 0. Both Frankfurt and Augsburg have to wait for the first three of this season, both teams have lost their opening games.
The goals: –
The Swiss: Frankfurt with sow, without tub. Augsburg with Vargas.
RB Leipzig – Stuttgart 4-0
Hanging heads with the Red Bulls from Leipzig after the 0: 1 against Mainz a week ago. Mega cheers for it on Friday at home against Stuttgart! The frustration has to get away from the bull’s soul. And Stuttgart has to suffer. Leipzig shoots the guests back to Swabia with 4-0. Striker Szoboszlai in particular shines with a double, with a free-kick flank flying straight into the goal. The other goals are scored by the Swedish national team scare of the 2018 World Cup, Emil Forsberg, and newcomer André Silva per penalty. So first victory for Leipzig, first defeat for VfB.
The goals: 38th Szoboszlai 1-0, 46th Forsberg 2-0, 52nd Szoboszlai 3-0, 65th André Silva (Pen.) 4-0.
