Bayern shared the spoils against Leipzig on Friday night, ending a 10-game winning run across all competitions. Cameroonian striker Eric Maxim-Choupo-Moting broke the deadlock eight minutes before the break, but left-back Marcel Halstenberg leveled the score for Leipzig, seven minutes into the second half. Despite dropping points for the sixth time this season, Julian Naglesmann’s side comfortably sit at the summit of the standings. The Bavarians have recorded ten wins, five draws and one defeat in their league campaign thus far.
Koln, on the other hand, secured a seven-star victory in their last outing against Werder Bremen on Saturday. Steffen Tigges and Ellyes Skhiri both bagged a brace alongside efforts from Linton Maina, Denis Huseinbasic and a Marco Friedl own, while Bremen scored a consolation goal through Niclas Fulkrug. It was the Billy Goals’ fifth league-win of the season, and first one in their last six top flight outings.
