The race for the Bundesliga title is getting very interesting with each passing week as Bayern Muinch, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke all notched up wins to ensure that there was no let up in the league standings.
All three teams are level on 40 points with fourth place Borussia Mochengladabch only a point behind. Though Bayern remain top on goal difference, the pressure on Jupp Heynckes is not about to die out soon.
With such competition, it is no wonder that the Bundesliga is the most watched league in the world. That said, Bayern’s 2-0 home win Wolfsburg was thanks in part to top scorer Mario Gomez who scored in the 17 minute to ease tense nerves in the stadium.
A 92nd minute fluke goal from Robben ensured the Bavarians comfortably picked up all points on offer. Robben later acknowledged that the teams overall performance was not their best.
“Maybe it wasn’t the best game from us, but we were aggressive today and now it all begins,” he said.
Also adding his views to the game was defender Philip Lahm.
“The fact that we can play the better football is beyond question,” said Lahm.
“But we didn’t score at the important points of the game.
“In the first half we created three good scoring chances against a very defensive team.
“If you take the lead, the opponent normally cracks, but that isn’t what happened.
“Nevertheless, we can be satisfied with a 2-0 at home, we kept them to zero.
“Things are alright.”
Bayern prepare to face Hamburg away this coming weekend, while Schalke host Mainz and Dortmund travel away to Nurnberg. A slip up for either of these teams could spell doom on their title campaign.
Meanwhile, former Bayern star Lothar Matthaus is set to star in his own reality show. Mattaus who is constantly making headlines in Germany for his turbulent personal, has decided to open up his private life to the public in a a documentary/soap type story about his life.
Speaking to Bild Newspaper, Matthaus was quoted as saying that he wanted to show people who he really is.
“I want to show people how I really am. Most people are only familiar with some of the headlines. I think there will be a lot of positive surprises for me.”
