Bundesliga Gathers Pace – Bayern, Dortmund With 3 Points

It stands as Bayern, Dortmund and Schalke at the top of the table in Bundesliga, with Bayern Munich 9 points clear of Borussia Dortmund after game week – 13. 

Bayern hosted Hannover at the Allianz arena yesterday and scored 5 past a sorry looking Hannover goalkeeper Zieler. New signing Martinez opened the scoring just after 4 minutes to start the rout. Toni Kroos added the second one before Ribery made three before the half time struck. 

Defender Dante headed in another on the hour and Gomez slipped past one defender to slot in seconds after coming on for his first league appearance this season – a memorable return for the German. It took just 67 minutes for Bayern to score all the 5 goals and Hannover couldn’t get one past the tight lipped Bayern Defense. 

Returning to the game after spending months in the injury beds and scoring a goal would please any player and Gomez was no doubt delighted with his effort. 

“It’s a great feeling. It was a long time without football,” Gomez said. “For me personally it was a beautiful moment.”

Else where rivals Borussia Dortmund came from behind to secure three points against a spirited Mainz 05 thanks to a goal from Poland International Lewandowski. Jurgen Klopp facing his former club was delighted to see this team take all the three points to move up to the second place 9 points behind leaders Bayern. Mainz drew first blood just after 4 minutes going 1 – 0 up through a goal from Caligiuri. 

After several attempts from Dortmund, Marco Reus scored a perfect shot that made it 1-1 leaving Mainz to square one. Mainz looked to have turned it around when  Ivanschitz broke pass all the defenders only to lose his nerve at the crucial moment agonizingly striking wide of the goal. However at the other end Robert Lewandowski did not make any such blunders scoring a beautiful chip shot above the keeper. Dordmund got the crucial 3 pints they badly needed away from home leaving only Bayern ahead of them.
