Bayern Munich 7-0 Bochum

No let-up from Julian Nagelsmann here. Not even relatively speaking.

Joshua Kimmich scored twice and Leroy Sane had a goal and two assists in a complete demolition of Bochum.

The visitors had just 30 percent of the ball and did not put any of their five shots on target.

As for the hosts, Bayern put 15 shots on target and was credited with 14 “big chances.” Nine of them were missed, so the score line may even be a little kind to Bochum.

An own goal joined Serge Gnabry, Robert Lewandowski, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on the score sheet, and Thomas Muller had a goal taken away by VAR.

Bayern goes atop the table until Wolfsburg plays Sunday.

Koln 1-1 RB Leipzig

How did Jesse Marsch’s men rebound from a 6-3 midweek loss at Manchester City? By conceding five less but also scoring two fewer goals than managed against the Premier League champions.

Anthony Modeste put the hosts ahead just after halftime and Emil Forsberg had a goal taken away by VAR before Leipzig officially got on the board.

Hungarian star Dominik Szoboszlai set up Amadou Haidara in the 71st minute but a winner did not arrive even after American midfielder Tyler Adams entered the fold with five minutes to play in Cologne.
