Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski, right, celebrates with teammate Douglas Costa after scoring during the German Bundesliga soccer match between FC Bayern Munich and VfL Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena stadium in Munich, Germany, Tuesday, September 22, 2015.
No team has ever made such a good start in the Bundesliga, where Dortmund has scored 18 goals and conceded three in its five straight wins.
The win also takes Pep Guardiola’s side, at least temporarily, three points clear at the top of the Bundesliga, and above Borussia Dortmund, who will have a chance to continue their ideal start to the season on Wednesday at Hoffenheim.
Indeed, the gap is now four points in the Bundesliga with Bayern picking up maximum points from their first five matches this season, while Wolfsburg have drawn twice. Can Wolfsburg up their game here against the Champions?
Meanwhile, Wolfsburg’s Bas Dost needs to improve his attitude in order to play against Bayern Munich on despite a match-winning performance against Hertha Berlin, according to his coach Dieter Hecking.
Despite steering Gladbach to third and Champions League qualification last season, the 57-year-old said in a statement that he feels he is no longer the man for the job.
“That we are in this negative run is unbelievably bitter”, said Gladbach’s director of sport Max Eberl. Later Darmstadt 98 battles Mainz and then Darmstadt 98 takes on Augsburg.
Despite starting with five straight defeats, Stuttgart has been showing signs of life under new coach Alexander Zorniger.
“Bayern are a club I have never admired, even though I have to say that they deserve my utmost respect for what they have achieved there”.
As it stands, Lewandowski’s goal drought now stands at nearly 15 minutes. Bayern in turn has four wins and one loss in their last five battles. Sporting director Rudi Voeller said the side was like a “sleeping beauty” after the loss in Dortmund.
It was like someone had given the home side a turbo boost at the break as Lewandowski rocked up in the 54 minute to complete his hat-trick and give Bayern a 3-1 advantage.
Another two minutes passed and we had a fourth goal.
