Franck Ribery scored the first goal in Bayern's 2-0 victory against a gritty Frankfurt side. The result wasn't secure until the second half when the Bavarians were on the receiving end of a very, very soft penalty. The win extends Bayern's record start to the season.
Second-place Schalke looked a bit exhausted after their midweek Champions League match and fell behind early to visitors Bremen. But Roman Neustädter and Julian Draxler both scored in the second half to seal a razor thin 2-1 win and keep pace with Bayern.
Coming off a draw with Real Madrid in the Champions League, Dortmund were not at their best in Augsburg. But the hosts are the worst team in the Bundesliga, and Robert Lewandowski barely broke a sweat in bagging a brace. The result: a comfy 3-1 win for the defending champs.
There weren't many highlights in Augsburg, as Hamburg had a man sent off in the first half, while the hosts were unable to make any capital of their advantage. Given that they were short-handed for more than an hour, Hamburg were probably happier with this one.
After the two treams traded goals in the first half, Hoffenheim's Marvin Compper - here in the background in blue - got a bit too frisky and received his marching orders. But the Hoff were able to keep newly promoted Düsseldorf at bay, and the match ended 1 all.
Make it four straight at home for Mainz. They kicked off round 11 on Friday with a 2-1 victory over Nuremberg. Nicolai Müller and Andreas Ivanschitz were the goal scorers for Mainz. At this point, Mainz are a candidate for a spot in international competition next season.
Wolfsburg playmaker Diego put on the sort of show he used to when he was winning trophies with Bremen. The diminutive Brazilian scored twice within the first quarter of an hour to spark his team to an easy 3-1 victory. Oh what firing coach Felix Magath has done for the Wolves!
Hanover haven't been a good away team this season, so Stuttgart probably felt safe when they went up 2-0 in the first half. But what was that about premature chicken-counting? Hanover roared back in the second half, benefitting from two penalties. Mo Abdellaoue bagged a brace in the 4-2 win.
Greuther Fürth were celebrating at half-time after taking a 2-1 lead into the dressing room against Mönchengladbach. And that was despite going down a man with only twelve minutes played. Unfortunately for their fans, though, Fürth ran out of gas and ended up losing 4-2. So they remain the worst home time in the Bundesliga.
Bayern Munich needs time and a bit of luck but managed to beat Frankfurt 2-0.
