German Bundesliga Soccer Game Week 24 Review

german bundesliga soccer week 24 review 2015

Borussia Dortmund loses the chance of reaching the top half of the table after a draw at Hamburg. Jurgen Klopp’s men failed to find a breakthrough goal, despite a total of 12 shots. Both the teams had two shots on target as the match ended in a 0 – 0 stalemate.

Meanwhile, the German champions Bayern Munich continue their wonderful run at the summit of the league table. Hannover’s Kiyotake drew first blood but it was soon canceled out by Xabi Alonso. The match remained undecided until Thomas Muller’s second half brace sealed three points for the Bundesliga giants. Pep Guardiola’s side have amassed 61 points in 24 matches and are now eleven points ahead of their competitors, VfL Wolfsburg.

The main challengers for Bayern’s Bundesliga throne were stunned at Augsburg on Saturday. Kohr’s 63rd minute strike was enough to sink the second placed team. Wolfsburg face Freiburg on Sunday and if they drop points in that match, the title race would certainly be over. Borussia Monchengladbach didn’t take advantage of Wolfsburg’s fall at the weekend, as they were held by Mainz in a 2 – 2 draw.

Bayer Leverkusen got an impressive victory at Paderborn’s home. All the goals came in the second half of the game as Papadopoulos found the first goal in the 73rd minute and Son Heung-min’s brace before full time ensured a comfortable victory for Leverkusen. Schalke also didn’t falter in this game week as they earned a 3 – 1 victory at home against Hoffenheim. First goal of the game was scored by Schalke’s Fuchs and the next two goals came from Meyer. Volland’s late second half goal was too little too late to make any impact.

Werder Bremen narrowly defeated Freiburg away from home. Former Premier League player, Franco di Santo’s 35th minute strike was enough to separate the two sides. Werder Bremen have stern test next week when they entertain the champions on Saturday. Holding Guardiola’s team to a draw will be a big achievement for them as they are sprinting to lift their 24th Championship.

This game week’s action was kicked off on Friday, when Stuttgart played host to Hertha BSC. The game ended in a goalless draw with 97th minute red card for Hertha’s Schulz. FC Cologne’s match with Frankfurt was a real goal fest. The hosts scored four goals, while Frankfurt’s Meier’s two second goals did no good to his team’s point tally. Cologne’s Wimmer was shown the red card in the injury time and he’ll the trip to Dortmund next week.
