Peter Bosz also helped Bayer Leverkusen with the second league match of the season. The team won 1-3 at Fortuna Düsseldorf. Alfred Schreuder won his first game with TSG Hoffenheim by beating Werder Bremen 3-2 at home.

Leverkusen comes in second place due to the victory, with just like leader Borussia Dortmund six points but a less goal difference. SC Freiburg also has six points, after a 1-3 win at SC Paderborn.

Bayer took the lead after six minutes in the regional derby, thanks to an own goal from former Vitesse midfielder Lewis Baker. Even before half-time, the team ran into a 0-3 lead. Charles Aránguiz and Karim Bellarabi were accurate.

In the final stage, Düsseldorf came on 1-3 through Alfredo Morales, but the victory was not at risk for the Bosz team, which kept Daley Sinkgraven on the bench for ninety minutes.

Schreuder also had reason to cheer with Hoffenheim, although the victory against Werder Bremen was only secured in the final phase. Pavel Kaderábek was responsible for the 3-2 three minutes before the end.

Davy Klaassen had a base place among the guests. He was at the basis of the 2-2 of Yuya Osaka with an assist. The Japanese scored just after Werder with ten men came after red for Johannes Eggestein.
