THE Berlin Union she was the winner of her 17th matchday Bundesliga (curtain of the first round), as they were the only one of the teams chasing Bayern and managed to prevail and take advantage of the Bavarians’ loss to Cologne!
For the fourth match in a row, Union Berlin celebrated against Werder Bremen and with a 2-1 win at the “Wezerstadion” they came close to -3 from the leader Bayern and are fully justified in hoping to win the title.
The “Proteusians”, in fact, had to make the turnaround, as they found themselves behind in the score early (13′) from Pieper’s goal. They equalized after six minutes (Haberer), and scored a second goal in the 42′ with Becker, which ultimately did not count after examining the phase in the VAR (hand), something that did not happen in the 46′ after Behrens’ finish.
The hosts, after the “heavy” 7-1 defeat by Cologne, experienced their 4th consecutive defeat in the league and continue in 2023, exactly as they ended in 2022.
Bayer Leverkusen extended their unbeaten streak against Bochum. The “aspirins” prevailed 2-0 at the “Bay Arena”, made it 5X5 in the Bundesliga and, now, in the last 7 matches against the Lets group, they have 4 wins, while another three have ended without a winner. Vassilis Lambropoulos was in the starting line-up of the visitors, who came from three consecutive victories.
With a buzzer beater by Giovanni Reyna in the 93rd minute Dortmund escaped from the Mewa Arena, with 2-1 over Mainz and re-entered the battle of the Bundesliga title, after yesterday’s “gela” of Bayern.
Borussia closed the first round with their second straight win since the resumption of the league (leading 4-3 over Augsburg) and at the same time maintained their unbeaten run against their current opponent for the 8th consecutive match at their “home”, while reaching the 7 wins in the last matches between them!
The hosts, who took the lead very quickly with Lee Yae-Sung, failed to take advantage in another match at home, where in the current season in 8 games they played there, they have just one win!
Augsburg returned to the “three points” after 8 matches (three draws and five defeats) and with its huge victory over Gladbach (1-0) managed to be out of the relegation zone.
Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt they stayed at 1-1, a result that “hit” only Bayern!
