Bayern capitalise on defeat for Dortmund

VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach earned a 2-0 win at Borussia Dortmund, who surrendered their place atop the table after FC Bayern München drew 1-1 at Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

Goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen shone as VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach won 2-0 against Borussia Dortmund, who surrendered their unbeaten streak and subsequently their place atop the Bundesliga table after FC Bayern München's 1-1 draw at Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

The 21-year-old ter Stegen showed why he is regarded as one of German football's brightest prospects by repeatedly repelling BVB's attacks. His brilliance between the sticks shifted the momentum and, with nine minutes to go, Mönchengladbach took an unlikely lead. Mats Hummels conceded a penalty – earning a red card in the process – and Max Kruse tucked it away.

The buoyant hosts then salted Dortmund's wounds through in-form Raffael four minutes from time as Jürgen Klopp's charges finished without a goal for the first time in 32 league outings.

The script was a similar one at the BayArena, where Toni Kroos' emphatic finish was the only one of Bayern's 18 on-target efforts to produce a goal against Leverkusen. It was wiped out by Sidney Sam within two minutes as the hosts earned a share of the spoils, although Bayern fans still saw their team build a one-point lead at the summit.

Elsewhere, Ádám Szalai hit a double to shape FC Schalke 04's 4-1 defeat of ten-man FC Augsburg, while TSV Eintracht Braunschweig picked up their first win of the season by prevailing 2-0 at VfL Wolfsburg.

Also on Saturday, VfB Stuttgart drew 1-1 with SV Werder Bremen and the game between 1. FSV Mainz 05 and TSG 1899 Hoffenheim ended 2-2.
