Lewandowski with a crazy record
FC Bayern let Bochum suffer very badly
Leroy Sané has now impressively demonstrated at Bayern why the German record champions signed him. Robert Lewandowski is brilliant anyway – against Bochum even with a new record. The newcomer is very bitter after the game. In the other places, goals are in short supply.
1. FSV Mainz 05 – SC Freiburg 0-0
SC Freiburg remains unbeaten in the Bundesliga. In a hard-fought duel between the surprise teams, coach Christian Streich’s team secured the next point with a 0-0 draw at FSV Mainz 05, setting a club record.
17 years ago, the Breisgauer were last on the first five match days in the Bundesliga without defeat. With nine points, the Freiburg team are on target, as is Bo Svensson’s team, who, after a strong start to the season, are higher up with ten points.
On the field, Mainz and Freiburg delivered the expected intense exchange of blows from the start. The 13,500 spectators in the Mainzer Arena saw high pressure from both teams, little space for the offensive rows and many contested duels in midfield.
FC Augsburg – Borussia Mönchengladbach 1: 0 (0: 0)
FC Augsburg celebrated their first win of the season thanks to a late goal from striker Florian Niederlechner. The team of coach Markus Weinzierl fought on the fifth match day against Borussia Mönchengladbach a 1-0 (0-0) and thus managed the hoped-for liberation. Niederlechner (80th became the match winner after a counterattack.
The Augsburgers managed to jump out of the table basement with five points and overtook the Gladbachers. The ambitious Borussia around coach Adi Hütter missed the second win in a row. With only four points in five games, the foals are far below expectations.
Arminia Bielefeld – 1899 Hoffenheim 0-0
TSG Hoffenheim is still not really getting going. In the 50th competitive game of coach Sebastian Hoeneß, the Kraichgauer did not get past a 0-0 at Arminia Bielefeld and have thus been without a win for four games. The Arminia is still waiting for the first success of the season.
Hoeneß reacted to Hoffenheim’s 2-0 defeat against FSV Mainz 05 last match day with five changes in the starting line-up. Sebastian Rudy, Stefan Posch, Dennis Geiger, Mijat Gacinovic and Georginio Rutter first had to sit on the bench. Pavel Kaderabek, Florian Grillitsch, Diadie Samassekou, Christoph Baumgartner and striker Ihlas Bebou, who had recovered from his corona infection, played for this.
FC Bayern Munich – VfL Bochum 7: 0 (4: 0)
Bayern Munich took the momentum from the Champions League and at least temporarily took the lead with another gala appearance. Three days after the dream start in the premier class at FC Barcelona, the defending champion didn’t give the unfortunate VfL Bochum the slightest chance at 7-0 (4-0).
The strong Leroy Sané (17th), Joshua Kimmich (27th), Serge Gnabry (32nd) and an own goal by Vasilios Lampropoulos (43rd) made everything clear before the break. After the restart, Robert Lewandowski once again set a Bundesliga record: He scored in the 13th home game in a row (61st) – no player in the German House of Lords has achieved that before. The former Gladbacher Jupp Heynckes was just as successful twelve times in a row in front of his own audience from June 1972 to February 1973, as was Bayern “bomber” Gerd Müller from October 1969 to April 1970.
Again Kimmich (65th) and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting (79th) made the final score. For Bochum, the lesson meant the highest defeat in Bundesliga history (previously 1: 7 in Mönchengladbach in 1994).
