Borussia Dortmund 6-0 Darmstadt

The array of young talent assembled by Borussia Dortmund is astounding, as the German giants clobbered Darmstadt despite not using Andre Schurrle, Mario Gotze, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Marco Reus in the lineup.

American star Christian Pulisic prepared for his 18th birthday, which is Sunday, by coring and adding two assists in 90 minutes of work, while Gonzalo Castro scored twice and Adrian Ramos, Emre Mor, and Sebastian Rode added goals as well.

Bayern Munich 3-1 Ingolstadt

The reigning champs stayed perfect despite an early scare from Dario Lezcano and the visitors. Robert Lewandowski, Xabi Alonso, and Rafinha scored and Bayern possessed heavily, even if the Bavarians were out-attempted 13-10.

Hamburger SV 0-4 RB Leipzig

The new boys stayed undefeated as well, as Leipzig went into Hamburg and made sure USMNT striker Bobby Wood wouldn’t keep up his scoring ways. Young Germany prospect Timo Werner scored twice for Leipzig, and Emil Forsberg converted a penalty. Substitute Davie Selke also netted in the win.

Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 Bayer Leverkusen

Alexander Meier scored early before Mexicans traded goals with Bayer’s Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez equalizing before longtime CD Guadalajara man Marco Fabian found the winner in the 79th minute.

Borussia Monchengladbach 4-1 Werder Bremen

Thorgan Hazard and Raffael each bagged a brace before the game was half done, but neither found the hat trick. Olympic star and ex-Arsenal man Serge Gnabry scored his first Werder Bremen goal in the loss.
