During the Bundesliga week 23, Bayern almost lost their top spot to RB Leipzig after a close win against Paderborn. While RB Leipzig thrashed FC Schalke 5-0 to continue showing that there is a team in the making. The main highlights of Week 23 were:

  • Bayern Munich played a nail-biting game against Paderborn, where a late Lewandowski special made sure that the Reds stay on the top spot. The teams were level on 2-2 and Bayern seemed to have almost lost two crucial points, a late but great strike by Lewandowski gave Bayern a 3-2 lead over Paderborn. Bayern therefore retain the first place.
  • RB Leipzig beat FC Schalke all ends up winning the game by a whopping score line of 5-0. The most interesting thing about this contest was that none of the Leipzig’s goal scorers scored more than a goal. They, however, stay on the second spot yet again.
  • FC Koln also pulverized Hertha Berlin 5-0 in its endeavor to find a way back into the tournament. While, Wolfsburg too walloped FC Mainz 4-0, showing their class in this game as well and winning their second game consecutively too.
  • Fortuna, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund all won their games with a score line of 2-0 over FC Freiburg, Augsburg and Werder.
  • Monchengladbach vs Hoffenheim was a very tight game where after playing an evenly poised game against each other, both the teams could manage a goal apiece and the match drew at a score line of 1-1.
