Bundesliga Matchday 20: More title turns


With title deciding matches each week, the fate of the Bundesliga shifts every week.

RB Leipzig were siting top of the table at the start of the week, but then played to a 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Foals, looking to stay in the title race galloped out to an first half two-goal lead and then a referee decision turned the match on its head. Alassane Plea thought he was fouled and within 90 seconds had complained to the referee, got booked, and kept it up and saw red. From there, Leipzig hit the overdrive button and with a last-minute equalizer from Christopher Nkunku and a share of the points were had.

Bayern Munich has found their seam and rich vein of form at the right time. A 3-1 win in Mainz and they find themselves back on top of the Bundesliga table.

Mainz coach Achim Beierlorzer said pre match, “If we get anything it is a bonus.” Mainz did their part in rolling over for FC Bayern as the Bavarian’s romped to a convincing 3-1 victory. With momentum in their favour, the big match vs Leipzig on matchday 21 looms and could be where the title can be decided to stay with Munich or go elsewhere.
