The top of the table clash between Bayern Munich & RB Leipzig was a great advert for the Bundesliga.
These two played out a end to end 3-3 thriller. Javi Martinez pulled up in the 25th minute & Hansi Flick put his trust into 17 year old Jamal Musiala. He scored minutes later. If he continues progressing like this he has the world at his feet.
Hertha Berlin beat FC Union Berlin in a derby game steeped in history & politics. Minutes after taking the lead Union went down to 10 men after Robert Andrich was sent off for a dangerous high foot. Urs Fischer’s side held out to halftime & Bruno Labbadia introduced Krzysztof Piatek & Javairô Dilrosun to pile on the pressure in the second half.
Hertha equalized in the 51st minute & they took the lead in the 74th minute after the two substitutes combined. Piatek grabbed his brace minutes later to run out 3-1 winners. It was a disappointing evening for Union made even worse when Max Kruse hobbled off with a knee injury. The former German international has torn a muscle bundle & will be out for 8 weeks.
It was a memorable day for Silas Wamangituka but all the wrong reasons. His brace earned VFB Stuttgart a 2-1 win over Werder Bremen. For his second the 21 year old capitalized on a defensive mistake & delayed putting the ball in the back of the net. The referee booked him for unsportsmanlike conduct & Pellegrino Matarazzo subbed him off straight away.
I can’t remember any other player who has been booked for scoring a goal.
