What happened in the Bundesliga this weekend

Bundesliga round-up: Schalke's humiliation, Bremen halted, Bayern move clear

March 15, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
Have Bayern finally gotten the break they needed as they chase another consecutive league title?

Plenty of interesting happenings from the latest round of matches in the current Bundesliga season. As usual, there was joy for some teams, and for others, well, more disappointment.

Let's have a look at what took place over this weekend's round of fixtures.

Top five teams in the Bundesliga up to March 15

RB Leipzig's draw with Eintracht Frankfurt could ultimately prove to be their downfall, as now die Roten Bullen have slipped four points behind Bayern...and anyone knows that once Bayern start to gain a lead, they're pretty hard to stop

Who are the top three scorers in the Bundesliga?

Robert Lewandowski took yet another step closer towards hitting 40 goals this season as he netted Bayern's third against Wolfsburg, but neither Erling Haaland nor Andre Silva were able to add to their respective totals

Top Bundesliga headlines

Schalke's misery looks to have no end: Even if one isn't a Schalke fan, one really can't help but feel a bit of sympathy for die Königsblauen and their fans. Dimitrios Grammozis is now the fifth manager on the tactician's bench, and we still have nine games to go until the 2020/2021 Bundesliga campaign ends. Grammozis's first game in charge saw the team fail to pick up a crucial win over fellow relegation candidates Mainz, but if observers thought that was awful, they were in for even worse last weekend.

Wolfsburg showed Schalke absolutely no mercy as they crushed the struggling side in a 5-0 rout, and thus continues yet another miserable month for die Königsblauen, who to date, have won just one match all season. At this point, it pretty much seems like they'll be playing in the 2.Bundesliga next term, and one couldn't blame any of the players if they already have thrown in the towel.

Gladbach's horrendous run: Die Fohlen slumped to their fourth straight league loss - and sixth across all comps - this past weekend. They're just two away from matching a rather unwanted record, when they went eight games sans a win during the 1989/1990 season. Fortunately for them (perhaps), they'll be getting what seems like a break in their upcoming fixture, as Schalke are in even more dire straits than they are.

A young star rising: Do Dortmund have another young star in the making? Looks like it. In a squad with players like Erling Haaland, Gio Reyna, Jadon Sancho, and Jude Bellingham, Youssoufa Moukoko is starting to make a name for himself. The 16-year-old grabbed his third goal of his senior Bundesliga career as Dortmund eased to a 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin. In addition, Moukoko is third on his team in terms of league goals scored, ranking only behind Sancho (six), and of course, Haaland (who's netted 19 so far). 

Top Bundesliga matches: March 19-21, 2021

Arminia Bielefeld vs RB Leipzig: After dropping points in their one-all draw with Eintracht Frankfurt, Leipzig will need to get things right as they travel to face Arminia Bielefeld. Given that they're playing on Friday, a win here will help die Roten Bullen pull within just one point of Bayern - but that's of course before the Bavarian titans take to the pitch on Saturday. Anything but a win could see Bayern move as much as seven points clear by the time this round ends, and could thus put Leipzig's hopes of winning their first top-flight title in serious jeopardy.

Bayern Munich vs Stuttgart: The newly promoted side have been arguably one of the biggest revelations of this season, and will come into this upcoming tie with an impressive three wins from their last five games. What makes Stuttgart especially interesting is the fact that Pellegrino Matarazzo's side have actually done better on the road than they have at home. Yes, that's right: die Schwaben boast a record of W6 D3 L4 in their travels, versus W3 D6 L3 on their home turf.

Food for thought, then, for Bayern as they prepare to welcome them to the Allianz Arena on Saturday...

Schalke 04 vs Borussia M'gladbach: We all know Schalke has been in awful form all season, but what's really shocking is Gladbach's slide down the table. Not too long ago, die Fohlen, who finished in fourth place last season, were looking good to again challenge for a European football spot. They notably beat Bayern 3-2 after coming from two goals down, as well as picked up all three points in a six goal thriller against Borussia Dortmund.

However, since failing to score in a 0-0 draw with Wolfsburg, it's been all downhill for Marco Rose's side. They will come into this game having lost four on the trot, and will naturally be desperate to avoid making it a fifth straight defeat. Meanwhile, Schalke have earned two points from their last five games and time is running out if they want to have any glimmer of hope at avoiding playing in the 2.Bundesliga next season.
