Player Ratings Bayern Munich-Leipzig 3:3

Bayern Munich remained top of the league in Germany after a hard fought 3-3 draw against RB Leipzig. RBL certainly had their chances in a game where they went ahead twice, only for Bayern to fight back on both occasions.

Player ratings for Bayern-RBL from the German Bild newspaper. A good day at the office for Messrs Lewandowski and Coman, but not so much for the rest (6 is a bad rating, 1 is excellent)

Leipzig fell to third in the table as a result of the draw, with Bayer Leverkusen overtaking them in the table following their 3:0 win over S04.

Player Ratings Bayern Munich Werder Bremen 1:1

A disappointing result for German champions Bayern Munich, who had to settle for a 1:1 draw over the weekend against Werder Bremen. Interestingly, this was SvW’s fifth consecutive 1:1 Bundesliga result- they seem to be making a habit of that scoreline.

This was a pretty tight game in terms of xG (Bayern 1.57-1.69 Werder), with Bremen actually edging FCB on that stat as well.

Here are the player ratings from Bild- not often that you see Robert Lewandowski get a 5, but this was one such occasion.

(6 very bad, 1 very good in the ratings scale)

Hat tricks conceded by Manuel Neuer | Occasions where 3 or more goals have been scored against Bayern & Germany goalkeeper Neuer

Which players have scored hat tricks against Manuel Neuer in club and international football?

Bayern Munich and Germany international Neuer is widely regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers, but here is the list of players who have scored hat tricks against Neuer.

Robert Lewandowski for Dortmund (BVB 5-2 Bayern, 2011/12 DFB Pokal final, 12 May 2012)

Sergio Aguero for Man City (MCFC 3-2 Bayern, 2014/15 UCL group stage, 25 November, 2014)

Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid (RMA 4-2 Bayern, 2016/17 UCL QF second leg, 18 April, 2017)

Dodi Lukebakio for Dusseldorf (Bayern 3-3 Fortuna, 24 November, 2018- 18/19 Bundesliga)

Ferran Torres for Spain (Espana 6-0 Germany, 17 November, 2020, 20/21 UNL Group 4)

Interestingly, the Lukebakio hat trick is the only time when Neuer has conceded three at home- all the others have been away or at neutral venues.

6’s everywhere as Germany are trounced 6-0 by Spain!

Germany’s 6-0 loss to Spain in the Nations league in Seville sent shockwaves back in the country, and the player ratings from the country’s biggest media outlets (see pics below) reflected that.

6 is actually the lowest score in the German grading system, and somewhat aptly, most of the German players in the 6-0 loss got that grade, bar keeper Manuel Neuer.

Will this lead to Jogi Low getting the sack? Most Germans seem to want him gone, but the federation is sticking with him, atleast for the time being.
