Wolfsburg 2 - Hamburg 4 (Bundesliga, August 23, 2009) Hamburg stormed into a third minute lead at Wolfsburg as Guerrero’s shot rebounded off the post, onto the head on Wolves’ keeper Benaglio, and into the net. After seven minutes it was 2-0 to the visitors as Eljero Elia managed to barge his way through the backline to net number two. Wolfsburg rallied after the break, Zvjezdan Misimovic and Obafemi Martins brought the hosts back level, but a 75th minute goal from Mladen Petric and a last-gasp fourth from Romeo Castelen sent the points back with Hamburg.

Bochum 1 - Hertha Berlin 0 (Bundesliga, August 23, 2009) Bochum took the lead against Hertha early in the second half when Antar Yahia scored from a set-play.
