The 6th fixture of the German Bundesliga made some changes on the table. Bayern took the top spot after their victory at Paderborn with 2-3, dropping rivals RB Leipzig on the 2nd place after their defeat to Schalke. Borussia Dortmund grabbed only one point against Werder Bremen on Signal Iduna Park, dropping Bayern’s main rivals to the 7th place. 

Bayern earned a hard-fought win away in Paderborn with 2-3. Serge Gnabry scored for Bayern in the 15th minute, with Philippe Coutinho providing the assist. The Bavarians maintained total control of the ball and had 18 shots towards Paderborn’s goal. 

In the second half, Coutinho scored his 2nd goal in Bayern’s shirt, with Gnabry returning the favor and assisting the goal scored in the 55th minute. The home team decided to open their game and that resulted in a goal scored by Kai Proger in the 68th minute. Bayern pushed harder after the goal and returned a 2-goal lead through Lewandowski in the 79th minute. 

Jumilu Collins shocked the German recorders in the 84th minute, making it 2-3 and forced Bayern to pull back and focus on their own goal. With no chances in the last 8 minutes, the final score was 2-3.
