Bayern after 4-0 in Cologne again six points ahead of Dortmund

FC Bayern restored the old gap to Dortmund in the German Bundesliga on Saturday. The leaders celebrated a 4-0 away win against 1. FC Köln and are still six points ahead of BVB, who beat Freiburg 5-1 on Friday. RB Leipzig won 2-0 in Stuttgart, Mainz beat Bochum 1-0 in their own stadium. Union Berlin put Hoffenheim in their place 2-1, Wolfsburg ended goalless against Hertha.

In Cologne, the hosts had no chance against Bayern, who played well. Robert Lewandowski became the man of the day with a triple pack (9th, 62nd, 74th), and Corentin Tolisso also entered the shooter list (25th). Bayern, who lost to Gladbach last week at the start of the year, have now scored at least one goal in 66 championship games in a row, improving their own record.

Marcel Sabitzer played for the winners up to the 75th minute and, as in the previous week, as a left-back. At Köln, Louis Schaub was on the field up to the 57th minute, Dejan Ljubicic came on in the 58th minute, Florian Kainz completed the game over the entire distance.

Kalajdzic without a hit

Their ÖFB teammate Christopher Trimmel and Union Berlin moved up to fourth place at least for a short time thanks to their success over Hoffenheim. Andreas Voglsammer (22nd) and Grischa Prömel (73rd) scored for the capital city, an own goal by Timo Baumgartl (16th) was not enough for TSG (Christoph Baumgartner played through, Stefan Posch until the 89th minute). Hoffenheim conceded the first defeat in a series of seven games. They scored 17 out of a possible 21 points.

There were also three points for FSV Mainz 05 to celebrate. A goal by Jeremiah St. Juste (48th) brought the decision in favor of the hosts against Bochum, where Karim Onisiwo was substituted in the 94th minute and Kevin Stöger came on the field in the 80th minute.

VfB Stuttgart lost 2-0 at home against Leipzig after goals from Andre Silva (11th/penalty) and Christopher Nkunku (70th). Sasa Kalajdzic played through for the Swabians, the injured Konrad Laimer was missing on the other side.
