Bundesliga Bulletin: Bayern bounce back, BVB lethal, Schalke toothless

After a difficult month, Bayern Munich resumed normal service. Borussia Dortmund can't stop scoring, unlike rivals Schalke, whose lack of firepower is becoming a big problem. Bremen and Gladbach continue to impress.

Deutschland Bundesliga | FC Schalke 04 - Werder Bremen | (0:2) Good week for: Bayern Munich, Maximilian Eggestein, Dortmund, Luka Jovic, English teenagers

Bad week for: Schalke, Markus Weinzierl, Fortuna Düsseldorf, Heiko Herrlich

The lowdown

- After Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness had launched a scathing attack on the German media off the pitch, Bayern Munich answered a few questions on it with a 3-1 win away at Wolfsburg.

Hoffenheim also ended a poor run with a Reiss Nelson-inspired victory over Nuremberg, their first win in almost a month. It couldn't have come at a much better time, with two critical Champions League clashes with Lyon and a trip to RB Leipzig in the German Cup coming up in the next 17 days.

Borussia Dortmund's scintillating start under Lucien Favre continued with a 4-0 win over Stuttgart, meaning they have scored four goals or more in four consecutive home games for the first time ever and remain unbeaten at the top. Marco Reus, Paco Alcacer and Jadon Sancho started together for the first time in the Bundesliga and all three scored within 25 minutes.

- Paco Alcacer has scored two more goals than BVB's rivals Schalke. The Royal Blues finished above Dortmund last term but despite tightening up their backline (see Stats) they've scored just five goals in eight league games, no player has scored more than once in the league and Domenico Tedesco's men haven't scored two in a Bundesliga game. Troubling times for the league's second-youngest coach.

Schalke's latest blank came against Werder Bremen, who move up to third on the back of Maximilian Eggestein's impressive brace. Just a few years older than Tedesco at 36, coach Florian Kohfeldt has made a huge impact in a short time with a win percentage of 47 per cent at Bremen, who had become accustomed to relegation battles in recent years. It looks to be different this time round, with Eggestein, Davy Klassen and Max Kruse among those thriving in a strong attacking outfit.

Borussia Mönchengladbach are in similarly good spirits, with their win over Mainz confirming their strongest start to a league season for 30 years. They finished that season in seventh, but the Foals may hope for more this time round.

- After winning their first two games, Wolfsburg are dropping like a Volkwagen's share price in the wake of the emissions scandal. Bruno Labaddia's men are bottom of the form table over the last six games, haven't won since September 1 and have kept just one clean sheet in the league. Is Labaddia genuinely just a late season fire fighter after all?
