Team of the Week – Match Day 27

by Cristian Nyari

It’s hard not to single out this weekend because of just Bayern Munich’s remarkable result against Hamburg.  That game, more than anything, symbolizes their dominance this season.  The rest of the matchday was as fascinating as that game was one sided, though.  Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen kept up the pace to solidify their Champions […]

  Matchday 21 both epitomized the excitement of the Bundesliga and the occasional doldrums.  Wolfsburg’s encounter with Freiburg on Friday saw an end to end action from kickoff to the final whistle in a match that most expected to be forgettable affair while Saturday saw two late comebacks from Bremen and Hannover.  It also included the usual blowout with […]

  After a lengthy period in hibernation, the Bundesliga returned this past weekend in all its glory. Perhaps not in the style that we’re usually accustomed to, Saturday being one of the lowest scoring days to date this season, but certainly not lacking in excitement.  Gladbach sprung the upset of the round by completing their […]

Team of the Week – Match Day 16

by Cristian Nyari

  Two goalless draws is a rarity in the Bundesliga so this was a unique weekend in German football.  Perhaps even more surprising was Augsburg’s win over high flying Gladbach which finally lifted the club out of last place in the standings.  At the other end of the table, Bayern cemented their place at the […]

Team of the Week – Match Day 14

by Cristian Nyari

  It was a weekend of derbies in the Bundesliga.  In the biggest of them all, Dortmund took top honors against their Ruhr rivals from Gelsenkirchen in a rather one sided derby and went top of the table while Gladbach too resoundingly defeated a harmless Köln.  Mainz provided the biggest upset of the weekend with […]
