Bundesliga Table 2013 Week 11: Updated Standings Following Matchday 10
Through nine matches, this year's Bundesliga season is already shaping up as a classic.
Last year, Bayern Munich had the title locked up by what seemed like November. The two years before that, Borussia Dortmund ended the season atop the table by eight and seven points, respectively.
But this year, the league that has lacked end-of-the-season drama appears on the verge of a compelling three-horse all the way into May (which sounds OK, whaddya say?).
Heading into this weekend's play, the Bavarians—following last season's assertive treble—have yet to lose and sit at the summit of the table with 23 points. But Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen have both looked just as impressive with 22 points apiece.
Here's a look at the complete table, set to be updated as Saturday and Sunday's fixtures unfold:
|18||TSV Eintracht Braunschweig||10||4||-16|
Week 10 results:
|Date||Home Club||Score||Away Club||Score|
|10/26||Bayer Leverkusen||2||FC Augsburg||1|
|10/26||Bayern Munich||3||Hertha Berlin||2|
|10/26||Hannover 96||1||TSG Hoffenheim||4|
|10/26||Mainz||2||TSV Eintracht Braunschweig||0|
|10/26||Schalke 04||1||Borussia Dortmund||3|
|10/26||VfL Wolfsburg||3||Werder Bremen||0|
|10/27||SC Freiburg||0||Hamburg SV||3|
|10/27||Borussia Monchengladbach||4||Eintracht Frankfurt||1|
VfB Stuttgart and Nurnberg got play started on Friday, battling to a 1-1 draw. Vedad Ibisevic scored his seventh goal in 10 games with a penalty in the third minute, but Nurnberg equalized just three minutes later when 21-year-old Josip Drmic curled one in off the inside of both posts.
Nurnberg remains in the relegation zone, but a draw away from home against a solid Stuttgart side is more than encouraging, especially in Gertjan Verbeek's debut as manager.
For the time being, Stuttgart moves into the top six with sights on qualifying for the Europa League after last season's 11th-place finish.
Who will finish at the top of the table?
Two matches this weekend threaten to shake up the pecking order at the top of Germany's finest league.
Bayern takes on Hertha Berlin, a tough squad that hasn't lost in its last four matches and is currently fourth on the table. At the Allianz Arena, however, Pep Guardiola's side shouldn't have too much trouble.
At the same time on Saturday (you can find the complete schedule here), Dortmund will travel to Gelsenkirchen to take on Champions League side Schalke 04, who have won four of their last six in the Bundesliga.
