Bundesliga Matchday 24 review


Big match scorelines, match postponements, and big performances made up Matchday 24.

As the match ended 1-1, both Leipzig and Leverkusen could conclude that they both were intending to move up the league ladder and yet perhaps there were points left on the table.

After drawing Glasgow Rangers in the Round of 16 of Europa League, Leverkusen wanted to show they were good enough for more and Leon Bailey got that first goal, making that desire be more than a wish. Leipzig has been a team that has been able to make comebacks and quickly a response came as Patrik Schick got the equalizer. No more goals followed, but there was openness which didn’t result in any and each team will know they could have increased their standing within the Bundesliga.

In a six-goal thriller Hertha Berlin came from a whopping 3-0 deficit to get a 3-3 draw while just one point earned keeps Dusseldorf in the relegation playoff position.

With the Jurgen Klinsmann hiring and curious exit, coupled with a shotgun approach in player acquisition in winter, Interim coach Alexander Nuri has proven with Bremen that he isn’t a solution. Fortuna has earned three draws one defeat and one victory since their hiring of Uwe Rosler. This will sting ahead of four massive matches in the Pokal and Bundesliga and the season is still in the balance.
