Bundesliga Matchday 12 Roundup - Bayern takes four point lead

Bayern increased its lead in the Bundesliga to four points  over Dortmund and Leverkusen with a 3-0 win over Augsburg in a local Bavarian derby.  Boateng, Ribery and Thomas Mueller scored for the defending champion, making it the 37th league game without a loss.  Borussia Dortmund lost narrowly, on the road, against VFL Wolfsburg, registering its second loss of the season.  Bayer Leverkusen went head to head with Hamburg, but Son's hattrick contributed to Leverkusen's 5-3 victory. The win puts Leverkusen even on points with Dortmund.

Schalke came back from a one goal deficit with two goals by Kevin-Prince Boateng.  Jefferson Farfan made it 3-1 for the Knappen, moving them into sixth spot. 

47,200 spectators attended the Bundesliga's Friday evening opener.  Braunschweig temporarily left the table tail with a hard fought scoreless tie in the first Lower Saxony derby in 37 years.  This was the one thousandth scoreless tie in the Bundesliga. For Hannover it was the seventh successive match without a victory.  Although Hannover was the driving force of the match, Braunschweig prevented a catastrophe with good defensive work and a few fabulous saves by its keeper Danie Davari.

Adrian Ramos scored twice and set up a third to give Hertha BSC Berlin a 3-2 win over Hoffenheim.  Freiburg, Braunschweig and Nuernberg continue in the relegation spots, with Eintracht Frankfurt just two points out of the zone.  VFB Stuttgart took home a valuable three points from Freiburg, with a 3-1 away victory.  Mainz narrowly won over Eintracht Frankfurt.  Borussia MoenchenGladbach's 3-1 victory catapulted the club into fourth spot, six points ahead of the top contenders.   

The Bundesliga now takes a two week break while the DFB team plays two international friendlies against Italy and England.  With the majority of the DFB team being provided by Bayern and Dortnund, these players will play as a team, prior to going head to head on matchday 13, when  the rubber hits the road when Bayern Muenchen and Dortmund meet in Dortmund.
