Bayern Munich made it three wins out of three in the Bundesliga this season and six out of six in all competitions, but they were made to work hard to beat Bavarian rivals Ingolstadt 3-1.
Dario Lezcano gave Ingolstadt a surprise lead at the Allianz Arena, but goals from Robert Lewandowski and Xabi Alonso turned things around for Carlo Ancelotti’s men. Ingolstadt had the better chances to score in the second half before Rafinha settled Bayern’s nerves and sealed their win late on.
Borussia Dortmund claimed their second successive 6-0 win of the week as Darmstadt were dispatched comfortably.
Gonzalo Castro gave Thomas Tuchel’s men an early lead and two goals early in the second half from Adrian Ramos and Christian Pulisic effectively ended any hopes. Darmstadt ended the game with 10 men when their captain Peter Niemeyer picked up a second yellow card with over half an hour left and further goals from Castro, Sebastian Rode and Emre Mor completed the scoring.
RB Leipzig continued their excellent start to their first season in the Bundesliga with a 4-0 triumph at Hamburg moving them up to second in the standings, behind Bayern Munich.
Eintracht Frankfurt picked up their second win of the season to move three points clear of opponents Bayer Leverkusen with a 2-1 triumph at the Waldstadion.
Alexander Meier put the Eagles in front early in the second half, but Mexico international Javier Hernandez levelled soon after.
Hernandez’s compatriot Marco Fabian restored Frankfurt’s lead, and they managed to hold on to all three points, thanks also to a missed penalty from Hernandez at the death.
