Bayern crushed Mainz to keep themselves at the summit of the log. They got an all mighty scare though going into the second 2-0 down courtesy of goals from Jonathan Burkhadt and Alex Hack. The first one caught the home side cold(expecting a foul).Ref was not giving belated christmas gifts.Quick fire goals from Kimmich and Sane after the break leveled things up at the Allianz Arena. The lead came when Niklas Sule had all the time to chest and half volley home from close range on 70 minutes.Serge Gnabry went off injured in winning the penalty that Lewandolski converted to make it 4-2 Bayern after 76 minutes. The last goal was all about Muller’s vision to pick out the prolific Pole. Business as usual for Bayern going into the new year.
Leipzig kept in touch with the leaders with a narrow win over mid table Stuttgart thanks to a goal by Spanish International Dani Olmo. The cross from Angelino was both delicate but difficult to defend against. Kobel’s penalty save with his outstretched foot had kept the home side in the contest on 20 minutes. Dortmund are 4th on the standings following a hard fought 2-0 win over Wolfsburg. Defender Akanji with a majestic header on 66 minutes and Jadon Sancho in injury time made the points safe for BVB. Sancho did so well to read the offside script(you cant be in your own half) and making the Wolfsburg defender look rather inept in dancing around him in circles. In another game,Matteo Guendouzi showed what Arsenal are missing with a brilliant goal in Hertha Berlin’s 3-0 win over basement club Schalke 04
