Bayer victory and Havertz achievement
The 29th round of the Bundesliga started on Friday in Freiburg. Fighting for the Bayer medal, having suffered a major defeat at Wolfsburg this week, scored the most important three points and temporarily rose to third place.
The victory was brought to the team by incredibly fit Kai Haverts. At the beginning of the second half, the midfielder, despite the resistance of two opponents at once, managed to send the ball exactly between the legs of the goalkeeper from a fairly sharp angle.
This goal for the football player is the sixth in the last five matches of the championship and the 11th in the current season. Moreover, Kai became the Bundesliga top scorer among players under 21 in the history of the tournament. He has already won 35 goals in the national championship. Haverts rewrote the achievement of former Schalke forward Klaus Fischer, who scored 34 times.
Winning goal in the 85th minute and a red card after a substitution
But “Wolfsburg”, after a triumph in Leverkusen, unexpectedly lost at home to “Eintracht” - 1: 2. A team from Frankfurt managed to snatch a victory in the 85th minute - Daiti Kamada scored in the second match in a row. The guests caught the opponent in a counterattack and won their first victory in the Bundesliga in seven meetings.
True, in the end, Eintracht remained in the minority. Replaced shortly before the final whistle, Lucas Torro already in the time added by the referee managed to earn two yellow cards for breaking the attack and left the field.
Five accurate shots of Bayern and Jorgensen's own goal
The only rout of these two playing days was recorded in Munich, where Bayern did not leave the slightest chance to the modest Fortune. The leader of the Bundesliga sent five unanswered goals into the opponent’s goal.
The start of the beating was put by the defender of the guests Matias Zanka Jorgensen, who corrected the ball into his own net after an unsuccessful blow from Benjamin Pavar. But soon the Frenchman distinguished himself without outside help.
Then came the time of Robert Lewandowski. The Pole, confidently leading the tournament scorers race, scored a double. Moreover, both goals of the striker turned out to be beautiful. In the first case, he completed the elegant multi-way attack of Bayern, and in the second, heel sent the ball to the target with his heel.
Now on the account of the attacker 29 goals appear.
Forward for the first time in his career to score more than 30 goals per season in the Bundesliga. In the recent history of the tournament, only Pierre-Emerick Obameyang managed this. The performance record still belongs to Gerd Müller, who scored 40 times in the 1971/72 season.
Todibo’s blunder and Bittencourt’s beautiful ball
Of the outsiders, after the resumption of the season, Werder looks the best. The Bremen are not going to fly out and are desperately fighting for survival. A week ago, the team beat Freiburg, and then parted ways with the Mönchengladbach Borussia.
On Saturday, the wards of Florian Kofeldt took a minimal victory from Gelsenkirchen. Schalke, unlike the opponent, is not in good shape and has lost four games in a row with a total score of 1:10. And the collective has not known the joys of victories since January.
The fate of the fight was decided by the self-confidence of Jean-Claire Todibault. In the middle of the field, he began to beat several opponents at once and lost the ball. The guests instantly punished Schalke for the mistake. Leonardo Bittencote dealt a beautiful circling strike from outside the penalty area. Todibo himself was replaced during the break, but the hosts did not sleep.
Gelsenkirchenians were remembered only by the gesture of Weston Mackenie's midfielder, who entered the field with a bandage on his forearm with the words "Justice for George." Thus, the football player is almost a memory of George Floyd, who died while being detained by US police.
“Werder Bremen” not only won, but also waited for the misfire of “Mainz”, thanks to which the Bremen reduced the gap from the saving 15th place to just three points.
The victorious tread of the Hertha and the joker Pyentek
Great after the resumption of the season and looks "Hertha". Under the leadership of Bruno Labbadia, the Berliners literally gained a second wind and simply do not notice their rivals. At the gate of “Hoffenheim” and “Union” visited a total of seven unanswered goals.
Then the metropolitan team took away points from the Leipzig fighting for medals, and on Saturday returned to the victory trail. At the Olympiastadion, Hertha twice struck the gate of Augsburg - 2-0.
It is noteworthy that in the second match in a row, the star newcomer of the hosts Krzysztof Pöntek managed to distinguish himself, and he again came out only for a replacement. The Pole appeared on the field in the 65th minute and managed to distinguish himself in the time added by the referee. “Gerte”, the third victory in the last four meetings helped rise to ninth place - there are only four points to the Eurocup zone.
