German Bundesliga- Bayer Leverkusen beats Mainz and regains leadership

Bayer Leverkusen managed to get back in the top position of the German Bundesliga after beating Mainz 05 4-2 this last Saturday, on what was the eighteenth date of the German football. A day earlier, in the same round of games, the Leverkusen lost their lead when Bayern Munchen beat Hoffenheim with a score of 2-0. The win gave Munchen another two points of advantage and placed them temporarily at the head of the German league. Affected by Munich’s sudden ascent to the top, the Leverkusen locals began Saturday’s match distracted and uncertain. The visiting team was quick to take advantage, entering its opponent’s area. Once in their rivals’ area, the O-Fives needed only eight minutes, with Tim Hoogland scoring the first goal of the game, to put the scoreboard at 1-0. This score was the spark that ignited the locals, who reacted quickly, developing a strong game plan. The Neverkusen, determined to regain a position of privilege, began a parade of great plays. They acted as a rock wall to their opponents, who were unable to make any progress. But Mainz’s joy was short-lived; 15 minutes later, a great header from Czech defender Michal Kadlec put the score at 1-1. Four minutes later, Swiss midfielder Tranquillo Barnetta scored the second goal in favor of Bayer. With an advantage in the scoreboard, Leverkusen increased their tempo. Mainz players found it difficult to stop the heavy attacks they suffered from Bayer. Leverkusen looked unstoppable, and their opponents just couldn’t match their level of play. Bayer’s offense was becoming more effective with every attempt. At minute 30, midfielder Toni Kroos sent in the team’s third goal. The first half finished with Bayer in a clear position of superiority. But their overconfidence held them back at the start of the second half, with the Werkself slowing their rhythm. They devoted themselves to performing simple plays, trying to maintain their advantage on the scoreboard. Aware of the change in atmosphere, the Mainz players were able to create better plays. The team managed to put the score at 3-2, thanks to a goal from defender Niko Bungert at minute 67. The goal shocked the Bayer out of their sluggishness, returning them to their intense level of play from the first half. From that point on, the game became a real challenge; neither of the teams was willing to give up. The intensity made it difficult to score. A few minutes before the end of the match, Leverkusen had another opportunity quickly seized by Swiss striker Eren Derdiyok; he sent the ball into the net at minute 88, bringing the score to 4-2 and guaranteeing the final victory for his team. The win gave Bayer Leverkusen two points and put them at the top of the German Bundesliga flight with 38 points. The team is followed closely by Schalke 04 with 37 and with Bayern Munich in third with 36 points.
