Bundesliga Matchday 22 Roundup: Eight of the Best for Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich had a spectacular weekend as they utterly trashed Hamburg at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.

The Bavarian giants put eight goals past a torrid Hamburg defence courtesy of the club’s key players including Robert Lewandowski.

Arturo Vidal opened the scoring in the 17th-minute before Lewandowski went on to score a sublime hat-trick. David Alaba added his name to the scoresheet in the 56th-minute, a brace from Kingsley Coman then saw Bayern’s tally go up to seven goals.

Arjen Robben scored the game’s final goal as Bayern proved to be too much to handle for relegation strugglers Hamburg.

Bayern set the bar high for Leipzig, but the league’s second-placed side managed to keep pace with Ancelotti’s men following a 3-1 win over Cologne.

Emil Forsberg and Timo Werner were amongst the goals once again. Timo Werner set Forsberg up in the 5th-minute to put Leipzig in front.

Dominic Maroh scored an own goal which doubled Leipzig’s league. Cologne were met with a glimmer of hope as Yuya Osako clawed one back for the away side.

Cologne’s effort’s at a comeback, though, proved futile as Timo Werner closed the scoring for RB and ultimately earned his side the three points.

Bayern now sit five points clear of Leipzig, a decent lead, but one that can be overturned.

Bayer Leverkusen suffered a 2-0 defeat at home to Mainz with Stefan Bell and Levin Mete Oztunali getting their name on the scoresheet for Mainz.

Leverkusen’s inconsistency is worrying as they’re seemingly unable to put a string of fine results together which has resulted in their sporadic form. They’re set to miss out on a place in Europe seeing as other teams are better than them.

Friday’s fixture saw Wolfsburg suffer a 2-1 defeat against Werder Bremen which ultimately resulted in the sacking of Valerien Ismael.

Serge Gnabry scored a brace within eight minutes to put his side in front whist Wolfsburg grabbed a consolation goal courtesy of Borja Mayoral.

Wolfsburg sit close to the relegation zone with the team experiencing on-pitch and behind the scenes problems.

Hertha Berlin triumphed in what may turn out to be a top four decider as Frankfurt suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Pal Dardai’s men.

Goals from Vedad Ibisevic and Vladmir Darida saw Hertha Berlin grab the three points which saw them claim 5th-place at the end of the weekend. Frankfurt now sit in sixth, after previously sitting amongst the top four.

They’re just three points behind 4th-placed Hoffenheim, thus, they still have ample time to climb into the Champions League places.

Hoffenheim had to settle for a draw as they were left chasing the game following Schalke’s early goal which came via Alessandro Schoepf.

Sebastian Rudy scored the equaliser for Hoffenheim in the 79th-minute.

Elsewhere, Borussia Monchengladbach hammered Ingolstadt at the Audi Sportpark on Sunday.

Despite dominating most of the possession and registering a similar amount of shots as Gladbach, Ingolstadt still fell to defeat due to their inability to create decent goalscoring chances.

Lars Stindle and Andre Hahn were on the scoresheet as Gladbach earned the three points on the road.

Freiburg were thumped 3-0 by Dortmund courtesy of a brace from an early goal from Sokratis and a sublime brace from Pierre-Eimerick Aubameyang.

The win saw Dortmund move into 3rd-place on the league standings, they now look to cement their place within the top four.

Augsburg travelled to Darmstadt and grabbed the three points. Marcel Heller opened the scoring for Darmstadt in the second half before Paul Verhaegh converted a penalty to draw the visitors level.

Raul Bobadilla scored the winner for Augsburg in the 85th-minute which saw Augsburg steer seven points clear of Wolfsburg in 13th-place.
