Borussia Dortmund seems to constantly be in a state of change. Augsburg figured they had a win on their hands and on came for his debut Erling Braut Haland and what looked to be a loss for BVB turned into a memorable 5-3 victory.

Augsburg has always been a bit of a trouble for BVB. Dortmund looked in the first half to be lost and within blinking they found themselves down in the 55th minute 3-1. Com meth the hour com meth the teenager as Haland entered the match and from there single handed turned the tide of the match. A hat-trick later and Borussia finds themselves in fourth and seven points behind leaders Leipzig.

RB Leipzig has been a team that cannot be underestimated. They’ve made enemies of many fans, especially those from the old East Germany. A come from behind win over Union Berlin shows the league that they might be down for a moment but never out.

Leipzig was helped along by the return of American Tyler Adams. His holding role has been missing for a while from RB. currently there is a lot going on for Union Berlin as they take each match in hand as a moment to save their season. There is a chance that they will survive but more interestingly Leipzig and all that they do which rubs the fans the wrong way could be made champions come end of season.
