Wolfsburg 0 Bayern 3

It took Bayern about 20 minutes to get a grip on the match. Wolfsburg were disorganised and hesitant after their heavy defeat at Bochum two weeks ago and the Bavarians realized this from early on. Bastian Schweinsteiger put Bayern
ahead after a cross by Torsten Frings and then a bizarre goal made it two nil after the ball came back off goalie Simon Jensch to ricochet off defender Kevin Hoflands legs. Shortly after half time it was Schweinsteiger this time to supply the cross for Torsten Frings to make it 3-0. An easy win for Bayern ahead of their tough Champions League tie at Chelsea next week

Schalke 4 Nürnberg 1

Schalke who had lost to Mainz two weeks ago were eager to make up for their slip in front of 60 000 home fans. Maik Hanke came on as an early substitue for Ebbe Sand who went off with a broken nose and it turned out to be a significant substitution for Schalke as it was Hanke who scored two early goals to settle the home side's nerves.
Brazilian Ailton then made it 3 but a slip by Schalke goalie Frank Rost allowed Nürnberg to pull one back through Samuel Slovak. But Asamoah and Lincoln then combined well for the Brazilian to wrap things up with Schlake's 4th.
