Borussia Dortmund beat Freiburg 4-0, with a double from Erling Haaland, while Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Hoffenheim 2-1, taking the lead and took the lead after three games played.
Eintracht, however, could be displaced from the lead tomorrow by Augsburg if they beat Augsburg at home.
The Bundesliga has already had three different leaders in three days – Bayern, Hoffenheim and now Eintracht – although it is clear that at this point in the season that is little more than anecdotal.
After two consecutive defeats, in the Bundesliga against Augsburg and in the Super Cup against Bayern, Dortmund returned to winning ways with a clear victory against Freiburg.
In the 31st Haaland opened the scoring with a left-footed shot inside the box from Giovanni Reyna. It all started with a loss of the ball by Nicolas Höfler against Marco Reus when Freiburg.
Until that moment, Dortmund had had clear control but also difficulties to reach the goal, which changed after Haaland’s goal and Lucien Favre’s team became increasingly dangerous.
However, the second only came in the second half, with a header from Emre Can to a corner kick launched from the right by Reyna.
In the third, Reyna was the assistant again, putting a pass in the area to Haaland for him to define after stealing a ball in the middle of the field.
The fourth came already in discount, through Felix Passlack who defined an empty door to pass from Haaland.
With the victory, Dortmund provisionally climbed to second place, by a better goal difference than Augsburg and Hoffenheim.
Eintracht’s victory against Hoffenheim, which gives them the provisional lead, was tight but fair.
Hoffenheim opened the scoring in the 19th, with a left-footed shot from Andrej Kramaric inside the area, when Eintracht was the team controlling the game.
In the second half, Martin Hinteregger and Bas Dost signed the comeback amid permanent pressure from Eintracht.
Borussia Mönchengladbach, Real Madrid’s rival in the group stage of the Champions League, easily beat Cologne 1-3 with goals from Alasane Plea, Stefan Lainer and Lars Stindl on penalties.
Bayer Leverkusen drew 1 away goal against Stuttgart and Werder Bremen beat Arminia Bielefeld 1-0.
