FC Ingolstadt 04 v. 1899 Hoffenheim

Ingolstadt are still without a win this season, so it’s the pressure is on Markus Kauczinski and his men to sort out their poor start. Hoffenheim are 1 of the 4 Bundesliga sides undefeated so far in the campaign.

A brace from Vedad Ibišević sunk the Hamburg ship, scoring in the 29. minute and in the 70. minute. Despite the hard work of Lewis Holtby in the Hamburg midfield, Hamburg weren’t firing on all cylinders. American, Bobby Wood needs to look to start scoring for the port city, before it’s too late.
Final Score: 2-0
Bayer 04 Leverkusen v. Borussia Dortmund
This match would’ve made any Bundesliga fans mouth water, as these two Bundesliga supergiants paired up in Saturday’s late match. Goals from Admir Mehmedi and Chicharito gave BVB a rare defeat.
