Bayern Munich has failed to win against Werder Bremen for the first time in twelve years. ‘Der Rekordmeister’ surprisingly did not get further than 1-1 at home. Despite a huge blunder from his keeper, Peter Bosz won with Bayer Leverkusen and Wout Weghorst helped VfL Wolfsburg to a victory.
Weghorst scores, Schalke’s bizarre series continues
In Munich, thanks to a goal just before half time from Maximilian Eggestein, Werder could even hope for the first victory over Bayern since 2008, but it did not come to that. Kingsley Coman took care of the tying run after the break.
On September 11, 2010, Bayern-Werder ended goalless and in the nineteen subsequent mutual Bundesliga meetings, the victory was always for the German record champion.
Bayern lost points for the second time this season. Coach Hansi Flick’s team is still in the lead, but can be passed later this weekend by RB Leipzig, which needs a big win for that.
Bosz’s Leverkusen is doing well at the top for the time being. ‘Die Werkself’ beat Arminia Bielefeld 1-2 at the last minute – Aleksandar Dragovic scored just before time – and has one point less than Bayern.
Lukás Hrádecky in particular will be happy with Dragovic’s goal, as the Leverkusen keeper was responsible for the 1-1 early in the second half with a huge blunder. He went completely wrong on a back pass.

Behind the summit, Wolfsburg is in fifth place. Spits Weghorst put his team against the errant Schalke 04 with his fourth season goal at 0-1 in the third minute and saw teammate Xaver Schlager ensure the 0-2 final score.
The result means that Schalke has been waiting for victory for 24 Bundesliga matches. It is the longest defenseless series ever at the highest German level.
Furthermore, the meeting between Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Augsburg did not result in a winner (1-1) and Hoffenheim-VfB Stuttgart also ended in a draw: 3-3.
