Bayern Munich extend lead in German Bundesliga

Nov 10 2013, 3:16am CST | by IANS

Berlin, Nov 10 (IANS) German Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich extended their lead on top with a 3-0 win over Augsburg as Dortmund dropped points after a 1-2 loss against Wolfsburg and Leverkusen crushed Hamburg 5-3 at the 12th round.

Berlin, Nov 10 — German Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich extended their lead on top with a 3-0 win over Augsburg as Dortmund dropped points after a 1-2 loss against Wolfsburg and Leverkusen crushed Hamburg 5-3 at the 12th round.

Goals by Jerome Boateng, Frank Ribery and Thomas Mueller smoothed Bayern's 10th win in 12 matches Saturday, reports Xinhua. The triumph at the Bavarian derby gives the defending champions a five-point lead in the table.

At Munich, Bayern ensured a perfect start against Augsburg as Boateng scored the fastest goal for his team this season. The German international utilised a rebound following a corner to slot home into the roof of the net from sharp angle at the fifth minute.

Ribery put the win beyond doubt three minutes before the interval as he chipped a dead ball goal into the top right corner to double the lead. Mueller rounded off the 3-0 victory in the dying minutes of the match to break Hamburg's old record with 37 unbeaten games in row.

Thus, Bayern capitalised on Dortmund's 1-2 loss to Wolfsburg. It is the second loss of Juergen Klopp's squad whereas Wolfsburg recorded their seventh win. The Wolves came from behind thanks to two second-half goals by courtesy of Ricardo Rodriguez and Ivica Olic.

Third placed Leverkusen hold the pace as they are equal on points with Dortmund following their 5-3 win over Hamburg.

Elsewhere, Schalke turned the tides against Bremen to win 3-1 thanks to the Kevin Prince Boateng's double striker

Berlin secured a hard earned 3-2 victory over Hoffenheim that staged a hard fight and, winless bottom team Nuremberg squandered a 1-0 advantage to lose 3-1 to Monchengladbach.

Jul 28 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Holger Badstuber made his long-awaited return to football a week-and-a-half ago, appearing for Bayern for the first time in 594 days. The match was a preseason friendly against Memmingen, the local club of his hometown, in which the 25-year-old played as captain until his substitution on 58 minutes. Since his return, Badstuber has caught the eye of Pep Guardiola. His performance in training, perhaps combined with Bayern's inability to sign any of a number of replacement center backs th ...

Robert Lewandowski Scored a Casual Chip Over Five Opponents for Bayern Munich

Jul 27 2014 12:02pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Robert Lewandowski moved to Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund this summer on a free transfer – another example of soccer’s rich getting richer. Saturday in a friendly vs. Borussia Monchengladbach — Fabian Johnson’s new club — the Polish striker scored a goal that even Dmitar Berbatov would label casual. Lewandowski collected a deflected shot at the top of the penalty area and calmly lobbed it over four defenders and the Gladback keeper. Sure it’s only a meaningless ...

World Cup 2014 Final: Top Performers from Germany vs. Argentina

Jul 16 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Mario Gotze's stunning extra-time goal in the 2014 World Cup final in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday was enough to see Germany to victory against Argentina in a tense encounter. After beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals, Joachim Low's side were far better restricted by a dogged Argentine side who had their own chances to win the game. However, Germany's quality showed through eventually, and they claimed a 1-0 victory to win their fourth World Cup—and first since 1990. Let's ta ...

Germany vs. Argentina: Most Disappointing Performers from World Cup 2014 Final

Jul 15 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the first time in their history as a unified nation, Germany corrected the mistakes of four years ago to win a 2014 World Cup title on Sunday, triumphing over Argentina with an extra-time victory. The manner of such a tight victory would have one understand that no player in the fixture was altogether unimpressive, but there were those who coped with the Maracana's pressure better than others. Die Mannschaft took home the gold, but even they contributed their share ...

Schweinsteiger: A bloody mess of a powerhouse

Jul 15 2014 7:44am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

After the battle, Bastian Schweinsteiger needed a moment to himself. Having run further, tackled harder and touched the ball more times than anyone else in the 2014 World Cup final, the 29-year-old midfielder took a much-deserved breather. He was empty. And he remarked, “My legs are gone.” So there he sat, alone, on the Maracana grass, a winner’s medal around his neck, a gash under his right eye, dried blood on his cheek. And a smile on his face.
