News : Bundesliga – Bielefeld celebrates three times – sport
Against VfB Stuttgart, the newly promoted team has the highest Bundesliga win since 2006. RB Leipzig can win again against Union, with four goals in Freiburg.
Arminia Bielefeld – VfB Stuttgart
Arminia Bielefeld clearly won the duel between the promoted and finished the first half of the season on a non-relegation place. The team of coach Uwe Neuhaus prevailed 3-0 (1-0) against VfB Stuttgart, has two points ahead of the relegation rank after 17 matchdays – and is a full ten points ahead of 17th place. Captain Fabian Klos (27th) first scored for the hosts, VfB defender Marc Oliver Kempf extended Bielefeld’s lead with an own goal (47th), before Ritsu Doan (86th) made Arminia’s highest Bundesliga victory since November 2006 perfect. For Stuttgart, who are in the middle of the table with 22 points, it was only the second away defeat.
RB Leipzig – Union Berlin
With a lot of effort, RB Leipzig defeated the big favorite scare Union Berlin and kept the pressure on front runner Bayern Munich. At the end of the first half of the season, the Champions League round of 16 won against the surprise team 1-0 (0-0) and returned to the road to success after two games without a win. Leipzig remains the first pursuer of FC Bayern. The Berliners, who had previously remained undefeated against Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen and Munich, lost to a top team in the league for the first time this season. The Köpenicker are still in the race for the European Cup places.
SC Freiburg – Eintracht Frankfurt
Nils Petersen turned around the square in his black winter jacket and laughed. With his incredible nose for goals, the super joker ensured that Eintracht Frankfurt’s winning streak was broken. After four three-pointers in a row, the Hessians did not finish the first half of the season with a 2-2 (1-1) at SC Freiburg. Substitute Petersen (63rd) and Roland Sallai (32nd) scored for Freiburg (24 points), who had five wins in a row before their defeat at Bayern Munich (1: 2). A goal by Amin Younes (6th) and an own goal by Keven Schlotterbeck (75th) made for the draw, which gave Eintracht 27 points.
