Player Ratings: Robben and company cruise against Hoffenheim

Bastian Schweinsteiger marked his comeback from injury by setting up Bayern Munich's final goal as the defending champions stretched their Bundesliga lead with a 4-0 win over Hoffenheim.

Bayern Munich moved to seven points clear at the top of the Bundesliga with a routine 4-0 victory against hapless Hoffenheim.

If you thought Bayern would struggle after the loss of captain Philipp Lahm due to injury, think again. Two goals in each half sealed a never-threatened ninth league win, with the added bonus of Bastian Schweinsteiger's long-awaited return to the fray. Bayern's goal difference stands at a not-too-shoddy 28. Pep Guardiola's charges will be crowned champions; the only question...

Reus injury adds to Dortmund despair in draw with Paderborn

The injury bug has struck Borussia Dortmund again, with Marco Reus forced to leave Saturday's 2-2 draw against Paderborn.
The injury bug has struck Borussia Dortmund again, with Marco Reus forced to leave Saturday's 2-2 draw against Paderborn.

Borussia Dortmund's crisis can't be stopped, it seems. It's another weekend to forget for the black and yellows, after they threw away a 2-0 lead in a match that ended 2-2 against Paderborn and saw the loss of Marco Reus to another ankle injury.

The situation gets more worrying with every match, and though Dortmund gained a point on the Champions League places, it's still a big opportunity fluffed.

For manager Jurgen Klopp, the impression of Reus' injury outweighed the bitter result, and in hindsight,...

Philipp Lahm's fractured ankle forces Bayern Munich to look at depth

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has been ruled out for three months with a broken ankle.

Losing someone of Philipp Lahm's caliber would be a crushing blow to every single club on the planet. Even to this buoyant Bayern Munich side, unbeaten in all competitions this season, losing their skipper and talisman is more than a slight inconvenience.

The 31-year-old went under the knife on Thursday morning after his untimely ankle fracture suffered in training on Tuesday which will rule him out for three months. He will spend a few days in hospital after having a surgical plate and screw...

Borussia Dortmund look to begin winning streak at Paderborn

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth recaps Dortmund's third Bundesliga win in what was still a not-so-stellar performance.

The international break is over, but Dortmund's crisis is not.

The win against Borussia Monchengladbach propelled the Black and Yellows only as far as 15th, still 10 points off the desired Champions League qualification spot. Next up on schedule is SC Paderborn, and in the context of Dortmund's precarious situation, it's the mother of all must-wins.

The two-week pause was worth the wait, as Marco Reus had enough time to recover from his ankle injury and will be fit to play against the newly promoted...

The Bundesliga: Why We Watch Football

The ESPN FC team share their favourite leagues to watch and explain why they feel certain leagues are superior to others.

With the latest international break coming to a close and the frenzy of the club season about to resume, we asked some of our writers to chronicle what they love, both past and present, about the leagues they follow. It's #WhyWeWatchFootball. Here's Iain Macintosh on his awe of the German Bundesliga.

There has always been more uniting England and Germany than dividing them. Beer, for example. And sausages. Drinking beer, eating sausages and then singing very, very loudly. Frankly, it's astonishing...

Bayern will be able to cope without Lahm

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has been ruled out for three months with a broken ankle.

Philipp Lahm surprised many by retiring from Germany just five days after lifting the World Cup. In an opening gambit for ESPN FC, I pondered the positive effect Lahm's sudden international retirement would have on Bayern Munich, and it certainly has proved a blessing for the Bavarians.

A fit, fresh and firing Lahm has started every competitive game this season, and the Reds march on in their customary fashion, unbeaten in all competitions. Naturally, Bayern will also safely winter in the final...
