The defending champions celebrated with a 7-0 penalty shootout at VFL Bochum in the fifth round on Saturday in front of their home fans and lead by one point over Wolfsburg, who will return to first place by defeating visitors Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday. Bielefeld against Hoffenheim and Mainz against Freiburg ended 0-0, Augsburg beat Gladbach 1-0.
The Munich team, where Marcel Sabitzer entered the field in the 62nd minute, had an easy match against the rising team that everyone beat. Leroy Sane (17 / free kick), Joshua Kimmich (27, 65), Serge Gnabry (32), Vasilius Lampropoulos (goal 43 / own), Robert Lewandowski (61) and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (79)) caused the most Bochum. Defeat in the history of the Bundesliga. Lewandowski has now scored in 15 consecutive league games and could thus set the record for Gerd Muller from the 1969/70 season in the next round.
In addition, the Polish has scored goals in his last 13 home games, something that no one has achieved in the German Bundesliga yet. Lewandowski previously shared the record in this regard with Muller and Jupp Heynckes.
Like Bayern, Augsburg also achieved a home win – but by a narrow 1-0 margin. Florian Niederlechner scored the decisive goal in the 80th minute for the hosts, who started the match without the patient Michael Gregoric. The poor Gladbachers, coached by Addie Hutter, have held just four points from five games. Hannes Wolff came during the break.
There were no injuries in the remaining two games Saturday afternoon. At the number zero between Mainz and Friborg, Karim Onisio in the 46th minute and Kevin Stoeger in the 88th minute was exchanged at FSV. Philip Linhart was on duty for the guests along the distance.
In the 0-0 draw between Armenia Bielefeld and Hoffenheim, Alessandro Schopf and Manuel Brettel played in the Arminen, as did Florian Grelic on the other side. Christoph Baumgartner left the field in the 71st minute.
