Are Stuttgart are on the rise? Are Hannover doomed? After Bayern Munich's win but before Borussia Dortmund's visit to Mönchengladbach, DW's Jonathan Harding and Stefan Bienkowski digest matchday 18 in 60 seconds.
Bayern Munich defeated 10-man Hamburg to remain perfect under their recently reappointed coach, Jupp Heynckes. They are now tied on points with Borussia Dortmund, who let a two-goal lead slip in Frankfurt.
Borussia Dortmund threw away a two-goal lead in Frankfurt to make it just one win in five. Peter Bosz has built a brilliant attacking unit but they have a glaring defensive weakness. A better balance is essential.
Another touch of class from Leon Goretzka lit up an otherwise forgettable game. The Germany midfielder’s delightful dink made it four goals in nine league games for him and set Schalke on the way to a 2-0 win.
On Matchday 9, there is one standout game and it isn't a battle at the top, or even for a European place. The Bundesliga's worst two teams face off, with both hoping to finally find that first win.
