Berlin (dpa) – The favorites are not naked: the top trio of the Bundesliga prevailed in the second part of the twelfth match day. The tension at the top remains for the last league games of the year.
NOT THREATENED: Bayer Leverkusen has defended his lead in the standings, as befits his position. Before the Bundesliga struck against FC Bayern Munich on Saturday, Werkself scored four goals at 1. FC Köln and did not give their Rhineland neighbors a chance. Mitchell Weiser, who slipped into the starting team at the last minute, said confidently: “If we’re already at the top and have a duel like this, we want three points.”
GALA: The day before the world football player’s honor, Robert Lewandowski was already in gala form. With a double in a 2-1 win against his favorite opponent VfL Wolfsburg, which is synonymous with his Bundesliga goals 250 and 251, the Pole once again demonstrated his class. Will the peak of his career now follow? “I am not under pressure. I am happy to be there and to have the opportunity to receive a great honor,” said Lewandowski. According to the numbers and successes in 2020, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi should have no chance on Thursday.
UNDERSTANDING: Julian Nagelsmann looked down after RB Leipzig’s eighth victory in the Bundesliga. RB now has a bit of a gap with the non-Champions League places, the table third coach said. After the lackluster 1-0 at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, the Leipzigers are already five points ahead of VfL Wolfsburg in fifth place. However, the top of the table is also close with just one point behind leader Bayer Leverkusen.
END: Before the game against SC Freiburg, coach Manuel Baum was confident that FC Schalke 04’s winless streak would end soon. After the 2-0 draw against Freiburg, Baum was served. “We will have to be very clear about this game,” he said after his team’s shockingly weak performance once again. Harmless on the offensive, defective in the back. The Royal Blues have not won 28 games – Tasmania Berlin’s negative record (31 games without success, 1965/66) is getting closer.
