Bundesliga News

Bayern Munich 4-0 VfB Stuttgart

Robert Lewandowski netted a hat-trick as Bayern Munich thumped VfB Stuttgart 4-0 at Allianz Stadium on Saturday despite being reduced to ten men after just 12 minutes.

Alphonso Davies was given his marching orders in the 12th minute but it did little to put the Bavarians off their stride.

Lewandowski netted a scintillating first-half hat-trick and Serge Gnabry also got on the scoresheet with all their goals coming in the opening period.

Hans Flick's side are four points ahead of RB Leipzig at the top while Stuttgart are in eighth.

FC Koln 2-2 Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund were held to a surprise 2-2 draw by Bundesliga strugglers FC Koln at RheinEnergie Stadion as Erling Braut Haaland grabbed a brace.

Haaland opened the scoring in the third minute before Ondrej Duda equalised from the penalty spot for the hosts in the 35th minute.

Ismail Jakovbs edged Koln back in front in the 65th minute and just when it looked as if the Borussians would be condemned to defeat, the Norwegian marksman once again popped up in the 90th minute to claim a share of the spoils for his side.

Dortmund are still in fifth, while Koln are down in 14th.

Werder Bremen 1-2 Wolfsburg
