The most prominent domestic matches of European Leagues

German Bundesliga

Bayern Munich 1-2 Bayer Leverkusen

Though Bayern’s loss itself was shock and unexpected, the more hurtful for the hosts was the goal it brought. The visitors took a 1-0 first-half lead via Stefan Kiessling splendid goal. After Xherdan Shaqiri and Robben entered the fray in the second half, Bayern began to dominate the game and their top scorer Mario Mandzukic fired the ball in the 77th minute. But the Bavarians raised eyebrows when Sidney Sam’s header deflected in off defender Jerome Boateng thus turning into own goal for Bayern. This shock defeat put an end to Bayern Munich’s eight-game winning streak.

SC Freiburg 0-2 Borussia Dortmund

Freiburg definitely ran riot during the first half having made several prominent goal attempts. However, Neven Subotic scored a brilliant header from Marco Reus curling free kick in the 54th minute. Mario Goetze doubled Dortmund’s lead in the 83d minute leaving little hope for the hosts to spurt into the lead. Due to the victory Dortmund climbed up to the fourth position with 15 points.

Schalke 04 1-0 FC Nürnberg

However, Wahbi Khazri curling free kick ended the game 3-1.
