Bundesliga round-up: Surprise leaders after two rounds

August 23, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
After matchday two, there's only one team who still have a perfect record, and it'll probably surprise most to know that it's not Bayern.

After two rounds, only one team have won both their opening fixtures to kick off the current season. And no, it's not Bayern, with die Roten only picking up their first win after stumbling in a surprise 1-1 draw with Borussia M'Gladbach last round.

Here's all you need to know following this weekend's Bundesliga action.

Top Bundesliga headlines

Wolfsburg take an early lead: They may not have scored the most goals, but Wolfsburg have something that others don't have - a perfect record after two games. Last season saw die Wolfe also experience an uptick in form, such that they, along with Frankfurt, were not only the most in-form sides in the Bundesliga but also in Europe at large. Will the team, currently under the guidance of Mark van Bommel, be able to retain this kind of form for the long-term?

Dortmund brought crashing back down to earth: It seemed like die Schwarzgelben, who are currently managed by former Borussia M'gladbach manager Marco Rose, had gotten off to a flying start following their 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. However, Dortmund suffered a setback as they were beaten by perennial nemesis Bayern in the DFL-Supercup, and failed to recover as they slumped to a surprise 2-1 loss to Freiburg.

Hertha Berlin still yet to get off the mark: Hertha Berlin, who notably brought back former player Kevin Prince after over a decade, still have yet to really get up and running. They're the only side who haven't picked up a single point and will face a tricky test when they travel to face Bayern in this upcoming round, that's for sure.

Leipzig and Marsch draw first blood in "All-American" derby: Leipzig vs Stuttgart was a historic match, featuring two American managers for the first time in German football history. And this time, the spoils went to Jesse Marsch and Leipzig, who cruised to a very comfortable 4-0 victory over Pellegrino Matarazzo's Stuttgart.

Top Bundesliga matches: August 27 to August 29, 2021

Dortmund vs Hoffenheim: After back to back losses in the DFL-Supercup and against Freiburg, it's safe to say that the onus will be on Rose and his men to get back to winning ways as they host Hoffenheim on Friday, August 27th to kick off matchday three.

Bayern vs Hertha Berlin: With Hertha struggling, this game should present a good chance for Bayern to try to close the gap on league leaders Wolfsburg. Die Roten have picked up four points from their first two games and will hope to start to break away from the group of teams who are all sitting on four points.

Wolfsburg vs RB Leipzig: The league leaders will face their most challenging test yet as they're set to host a Leipzig side who will come into this game having put four past Stuttgart in the last round. Will they be able to hold them at bay to make it three wins in three games?
