What happened in the Bundesliga this weekend

Bundesliga round-up: Surprise results galore across the board on MD 12

November 22, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
There were definitely some surprise results in the Bundesliga over the course of this weekend, especially from the Augsburg-Bayern clash.

Along with the other members of Europe's "Big Five" leagues, the Bundesliga got underway this past weekend, with reigning champs Bayern kicking off proceedings with an away clash against Augsburg.

Given how Bayern have pretty much crushed all their opposition this season as they look to make it an unprecedented tenth straight Bundesliga title, pretty much everyone figured that Friday's game would be all one-way traffic in favor of the Bavarian titans.

Well, one thing that really does make the "beautiful game" so beautiful is its unpredictability, and by the time that game finished, fans and neutrals left alike were left quite shocked - and in some cases, impressed - by the result.

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

Top Bundesliga headlines, stats, and other facts

Bayern suffer surprise loss: Given that Augsburg had won just twice all season, pretty much everyone felt that it was going to be another straightforward three points for Bayern. The only question was how many goals die Roten would score and if Robert Lewandowski will continue to add to his rapidly going tally.

Well, Lewandowski scored once again to make it 14 goals for the season. Unfortunately, however, it wasn't enough to ensure that his side didn't slump to a shock 2-1 loss, as Augsburg fought back to pick up a well-deserved and crucial win. That win now sees them narrowly hovering above the drop zone, but they'll have to do more to really start putting some distance between themselves and the bottom two. Will they use this vital win over Bayern as the spring board to achieve just that?

Bayern's loss also sets a rather unwanted marker: In addition, Bayern have now lost two consecutive matches against teams sitting in the bottom half of the table for the first time since March/April 2007. It's safe to say they'll be looking to avoid making it three in three when they take on relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld this weekend.

Dortmund set a new record: Bayern's loss was good news for Dortmund, who, prior to the match, were in danger of slipping even further behind had die Roten won. Die Schwarzgelben secured a hard-fought 2-1 win over struggling Stuttgart on Saturday to now narrow the lead to just one point - meaning that they'll overtake Bayern if Julian Naglesmann's side don't pick up all three points in their match.

In addition, it marked a seventh straight home league win for Dortmund, which is the first time they've achieved this in club history.

Top Bundesliga matches: November 26 - November 28, 2021

Bochum vs Freiburg: Freiburg were the last unbeaten side in the Bundesliga, but now have lost back to back games. Will they be able to rediscover their form when they travel to face a Bochum side who are doing their utmost best to claw their way up the table?

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund: A win here would see die Schwarzgelben overtake Bayern - at least temporarily - until die Roten play later on Saturday. However, they'll have to be careful of Wolfsburg, who've had their ups and downs this term but appear to be slowly getting back on track, with two wins and a draw from their last three games.

Bayern vs Arminia Bielefeld: After their surprise loss to Augsburg, many eyes will be on how Bayern respond - and how their relegation-threatened visitors will have to contend with a team who will certainly be looking for someone to take out their frustrations on.

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen: Two sides who've had some tough patches will go head to head. Leipzig will be keen on getting back to winning ways after seeing their four game unbeaten streak snapped last round, while Leverkusen will aim to make it back to back wins after ending their four game winless streak with a vital win last time out.
