Bundesliga Talking Points: Goetze Lifts Bayern and Youngsters Save Schalke

The Bundesliga has picked up right where it left off before the international break with exciting play around Germany's top flight. Following Leverkusen's controversial win over Hoffenheim on Friday, Marco Reus' early penalty was enough to see Dortmund draw level on points with the Werkself in second place.

BVB and B04 were both leapfrogged by leaders Bayern, however. The Roten were a goal behind in the first half, but Mario Goetze came off the bench after the half-time break to inspire the hosts to a 4-1 victory.

Elsewhere, Schalke saved it late to take three points in Braunschweig, with Roman Neustaedter's injury-time strike lifting the Koenigsblauen into second place. Meanwhile, Bremen vs. Freiburg was the first match of the season to end in a scoreless draw.
