Bayern Munich took over the lead in the Bundesliga from RB Leipzig on Saturday. 'Der Rekordmeister' won 2-3 against SC Paderborn, while Leipzig lost 1-3 against Schalke 04. Borussia Dortmund lost points at home against Werder Bremen: 2-2.
Serge Gnabry and Philipp Coutinho brought Bayern 0-2 to Paderborn, after which Kai Pröger provided the connection goal. Robert Lewandowski expanded the margin again a little later and thus also scored in his sixth league game in a row.
If the Polish striker also finds the goal in the next two Bundesliga games, he will match Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's record. Jamilu Collins brought the tension back six minutes before time, but Bayern did not relinquish the three points.
Leipzig was at halftime 0-2 behind Schalke by goals from Salif Sané and Amine Harit (penalty). Rabbi Matondjo increased the lead just fifteen minutes after halftime, after which Emil Forsberg returned a little on behalf of the home team.
Bayern leads the Bundesliga with fourteen points from six games. Leipzig is now second with thirteen points and Schalke occupies third place with just as many points as 'Die Roten Bullen'.

Assist Klaassen in the event of a loss of points in Dortmund
In the Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund came after seven minutes behind Werder by a hit by Milot Rashica. The former Vitesse striker scored after a nice pass from Davy Klaassen.
Two minutes later, Mario Götze restored the balance and a few minutes before the break, Marco Reus gave the home team the lead. Marco Friedl brought Werder alongside again ten minutes after half-time, after which no more goals were scored.
With the loss, Dortmund drops to seventh place. Coach Lucien Favre's team is three points behind Bayern.

Leverkusen wins with debut Sinkgraven
Peter Bosz and Bayer Leverkusen won at FC Augsburg: 0-3. Daley Sinkgraven, who came over from Ajax this summer, made his official debut for 'Die Werkself' and saw Florian Niederlechner (own goal), Kevin Volland and Kai Havertz score.
With the win, Leverkusen takes fifth place with thirteen points. Borussia Mönchengladbach also has thirteen points, but that team is fourth thanks to a slightly better goal difference than the Bosz team. Gladbach won 0-3 at the 1899 Hoffenheim against coach Alfred Schreuder, where Jürgen Locadia came in after the break.
Wout Weghorst and Jeffrey Bruma booked a 0-1 win over FSV Mainz 05 with VfL Wolfsburg. Jeremiah St. Juste and Jean-Paul Boëtius completed the ninety minutes in the home team. Wolfsburg is sixth with twelve points.
