Goretzka led FC Bayern to the top of the table
Record champion had no problems with the 3-0 victory in Stuttgart. Coach Hütter lost with Frankfurt in injury time.
Stuttgart, Berlin – Start-up debutant Leon Goretzka has led FC Bayern Munich to lead the Bundesliga 3:0 (1:0) against VfB Stuttgart and a flawless result before the international break. The international scored 1-0 in the 37th minute of the 400th Bundesliga away win in the club’s history and prepared Robert Lewandowski’s 2-0 lead (62nd). Thomas Müller scored to 3-0 (76.). The Swabians, on the other hand, are celebrating their 125th birthday this coming weekend with a terrible interim result of zero points and zero goals at the end of the table in the Bundesliga and the first-round out in the DFB Cup. It was also the first home defeat for coach Tayfun Korkut.
“We are approaching the matter with a good seriousness.” You have to say: “Hats off,” said Bavaria’s national player Müller: “In our competitive situation, everyone has to deliver. You’re hot to show what qualities you have”. Goretzka said: “I’m glad that I succeeded well today and that I was allowed to play right from the start. I wanted to prove that I could help the team”. Stuttgart’s Mario Gomez summed it up: “It was an incredibly difficult game, the Bavarians played with a lot of verve. Then we lost a bit of patience.”
In front of 58,680 spectators in the sold-out Mercedes-Benz Arena in Stuttgart, national player Goretzka justified his place in the first eleven on Saturday with a convincing game, the first compulsory goal for his new club and a template. The ex-Schalker harmonized smoothly with his colleagues, including Franck Ribéry and Arjen Robben in Stuttgart. For Ribéry it was the 250th Bundesliga game.

Gregorian goal at 1:1 against Gladbach

Wolfsburg newcomer Pavao Pervan, the former LASK keeper, made a successful debut, replacing Koen Casteels, whose wife is expecting a child. Seven Cherries Casino is one of the youngest online casino.
Hütter with first league defeat
Frankfurt coach Adi Hütter and his team had to accept the winning goal Werder Bremen (Martin Harnik up to 59th) in injury time to 2:1 and the first defeat. The 1. FC Nuremberg (with Georg Margreitter) reached the first point with the 1:1 against Mainz.
Gregoritsch took after a mistake of defender Jantschke down the ball with the chest and shot in. With an additional shot of the Styrian in an urge period after the break Keeper Posch prevented with a reflex the 2:0. Both teams have after the second round four points.
