Lewandowski, Aubameyang and the race to reach 30 Bundesliga goals

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Dan Thomas discuss Robert Lewandowski's agent's comments on Premier League interest.

On Friday, Borussia Dortmund put in their worst league performance since April and suffered a deserved 3-1 defeat at Hamburg, their new bogey team. Dortmund were erratic at the back, gifting the opposition all three goals, and uninspired in attack, not least because striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a nondescript game.

Yet even on this dismal night, the Gabon international underlined why he might be the biggest marvel of the season so far. In fact, maybe on this night more than ever.

David Alaba, Thomas Muller guide Bayern Munich past Schalke

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola isn't worried by a reported fallout between Arjen Robben and Robert Lewandowski.

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany -- Bayern Munich resumed normal service after a fortnight's international break with an edgy 3-1 away win against Schalke 04 on Saturday.

David Alaba's deflected shot put Bayern ahead after only nine minutes before Maximilian Meyer equalised for the Royal Blues eight minutes later on the break.

Bayern were sluggish for long periods after conceding before record signing Javi Martinez restored the team's lead after 69 minutes with a fine header. Thomas Muller sealed the...

Xabi Alonso scores angle-defying goal in Bayern Munich training

There is an acceptance that Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso has ridiculous technique. 

The Spain international's passing is a thing of beauty and he's even been known to score from inside his own half.

To make us mere mortals feel even worse, Alonso has done this ...

The swerve! The nonchalance! Oh, Xabi, you excellent...

Borussia Dortmund poor across the board in Hamburg defeat

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on Borussia Dortmund's form and wonder if Thomas Tuchel will be able to keep the team together.

It was a Friday night to forget for Borussia Dortmund. They suffered a 3-1 loss to Hamburg, who have become BVB's bogey team by now, with the Black and Yellows only managing one win in their last six encounters against the Northerners.

Manager Thomas Tuchel was surprised by the showing of his team. "I didn't see such a poor performance coming after the final training on Thursday. The body language, the attitude, the way we played were far away from our own ambitions. With a performance like this...

Dortmund look to Shinji Kagawa to help maintain pre-break form

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on Borussia Dortmund's form and wonder if Thomas Tuchel will be able to keep the team together.

As the international break comes to an end, Borussia Dortmund resume play with a trip to Hamburg to play HSV in the sold-out Volksparkstadion on Friday night. It's the first Bundesliga match since the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and despite heightened security, those involved see the match as a step back to normality.

"It once again became obvious in the most gruesome way that there will always be more important matters than the next football match.", Thomas Tuchel said in Thursday's news conference....

Germany's World Cup scandal could have a major impact on Bundesliga

ESPN FC's Raphael Honigstein weighs in on allegations that Germany bribed FIFA officials to host the 2006 World Cup.
Corruption allegations have claimed another scalp in world football, German FA president Wolfgang Niersbach resigns.
Politician Ozcan Mutlu has said Beckenbauer 'buried his head in the sand' by not talking about the German football scandal.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has defended fellow countryman Franz Beckenbauer amidst the 2006 World Cup allegations.

For German football, it has been a veritable nightmare of an international break. One friendly, against France in Paris, was overshadowed by the horrors of the terrorist attacks at the Stade de France and the city centre. The next one, against the Netherlands, was called off due to "concrete evidence of a threat", as local police in Hannover put it.

Business as usual will hopefully resume when the Bundesliga returns this weekend but, for the German FA, the coming weeks will continue to prove testing....
