The weekend in Germany – Dortmund dominate… again
Dortmund defender Nuri Sahin broke the deadlock with a superb left-footed free kick to put the home side in front in the ninth minute. Japanese striker Shinji Kagawa doubled the lead just 20 minutes from time with a deflected shot which caught Bremen stopper Tim Wiese wrong footed.
Bayer Leverkusen grabbed all three points away at Hamburg in a 4-2 drubbing. The win saw them move into second place while Hannover remain just one point behind in third. Mainz had the opportunity to hold second spot but lost out when hosting Schalke on Sunday. In-form Jefferson Farfan struck the only goal on the half-hour mark, which allowed the blues to hold on for a rare away win.
Bayern Munich got back to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over St Pauli, moving them up to fifth. A thunderous drive from Hatim Alltintop opened the scoring, whilst goalkeeper Thomas Kessler’s foul on Thomas Mueller saw a straight red card and consequently allowed Phillip Lahm to convert from the penalty spot. Frenchman Frank Ribery wrapped things up with his third goal in his first two starts since returning from injury.
