Bundesliga matchday 13 results of the 2022/23 season
Werder Bremen 2-1 Schalke 04
Schalke 04’s time in the 2. Bundesliga was just for one season, but the club’s return to the top flight has not been a complete success. On Saturday, the Miners tied a questionable record when they travelled to Werder Bremen.
Werder, like Schalke, was active in the second division last season. With seventh position, the northern club is doing much better. Niclas Füllkrug (part of Germany’s World Cup pre-selection) and Marvin Ducksch delivered the judgement on the visitors, who were defeated 2-1. The connecting goal by Dominick Drexler came too late.
Due to the setback, Schalke not only remains in second place in the Bundesliga, but the illustrious club also has a negative record. Schalke was denied a Bundesliga victory for the 35th time in a row at the Weserstadion. That series began on December 7, 2019, with a defeat to Bayer Leverkusen (2-1).
FC Augsburg 1-2 Eintracht Frankfurt
Jeffrey Gouweleeuw’s FC Augsburg did not get any points from Eintracht Frankfurt. The host team got off to a fast start, with Mergim Berisha scoring within a minute. Within fifteen minutes, Sebastian Rode had equalised, and Ansgar Knauff had declared the final score to be 1-2 after just over an hour.
Borussia Dortmund 3-0 VfL Bochum
Arguably one of the better Bundesliga matchday 13 results. Borussia Dortmund, another competitor, did well as well. BVB easily defeated Thomas Letsch’s VfL Bochum at home, scoring three goals in the first half. With an average age of 31 years, the former Vitesse coach fielded the oldest Bochum team ever. On the other side, it was a 17-year-old talent that made history.
Yousouffa Moukoko scored the opening goal, making him the Bundesliga’s youngest player ever with ten goals. Giovanni Reyna scored from the penalty spot to make it 3-0 to Moukoko. Dortmund finished with three less points than Bayern and one fewer than Union. On Sunday, the capitals can pass again.
FSV Mainz 05 0-3 VfL Wolfsburg
VfL Wolfsburg had an uneventful afternoon in Mainz. Die Wölfe didn’t have to concede goals in the MEWA Arena thanks to Micky van de Ven at the centre of the defence. The visitors scored three times through Patrick Wimmer, Maximilian Arnold, and Ridle Baku (0-3). That means Wolfsburg is getting close to Mainz and can look up again.
1899 Hoffenheim 1-3 RB Leipzig
RB Leipzig won against 1899 Hoffenheim (1-3) thanks to Christopher Nkunku. Two of the visitors’ three goals came from the French international. Dani Olmo scored the other goal for Leipzig. Georginio Rutter scored for the home team after receiving a ball from former PSV player Angelio.
