Marc Brasnic will be a key player for Leverkusen this season.

Leverkusen remain top of the western group as they returned to winning ways after beating bottom of the table Theesen 4-1.

The win comes after three consecutive draws for Leverkusen, who still remain unbeaten with 18 points, one ahead of second place Schalke.

Marc Brasnic netted Leverkusen’s opener after some good work by Maximillian Wagener and Brasnic set up the second as his corner found Paterson Chato. Leverkusen scored twice in the space of two minutes to grab their third and fourth. Wagener or Francesco Gibaldi netted the goals to secure Leverkusen’s win.

Next up for Leverkusen is Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Youth League midweek. Leverkusen coach Nils Drube described them as: “A physically strong team with a really good offensive people.”

After that it is a top of the table clash against Schalke next weekend, which should be a feisty encounter.

Schalke 5-2 Fortuna Dusseldorf, Leverkusen 4-1 Theesen, Borussia Moenchengladbach 3-2 Wuppertaler, Koln 1-1 Rot Weiss Essen, Bochum 1-1 Dortmund, Oberhausen 1-3 Arminia Bielefeld, MSV Duisburg 2-1 Bonner SC.


Wolfsburg continued their perfect record and have made it eight wins out of eight after they won 3-1 against Holstein Kiel this weekend.

Philipp Mueller opened the scoring on 59 minutes as he got on the end of Tolcay Cigerci’s cross.

Paul Seguin made it 2-0 when he beat several players then the goalkeeper in a wonderful move.

Mueller was assisted by Cigerci again to seal the victory so Leonard Kirschner’s goal for Theesen was a mere consolation.

Wolfsburg coach Dirk Kunert said: “I was very pleased with our performance today. Kiel was a very unpleasant and strong opponent.

They had a good order and were always dangerous backlash.

But we have determined the game always remained calm and then achieved the goals in the second half.”

Carl Zeiss Jena 2-1 Lubeck, Hertha Berlin 2-2 Dynamo Dresden, Osnabruck 0-1 Hamburger, Wolfsburg 3-1 Holstein Kiel, Rot Weib Erfurt 2-6 St Pauli, Werder Bremen 3-1 Hansa Rostock, Hannover 2-0 Union Berlin.


With just two points separating the top eight sides in the south/southwest division, it is anyone’s league after eight games played.

Hoffeinheim missed the chance to go top after they lost 3-1 to Freiburg.

Adel Daouri (2) and Raul Sick grabbed the goals for Freiburg to lift them up to third place and equal on points with leaders Augsburg.

Augsburg will feel lucky to have kept their place at the top though after they only narrowly beat Astoria Walldorf 3-2.

Greuther 1-4 Mainz, VFB Stuttgart 3-0 Kaiserlautern, Eintracht Frankfurt 0-0 1860 Munich, Bayern Munich 5-2 Karlsruher, Astoria Walldorf 2-3 Augsburg, Unterhaching 6-0 Wacker Burghausen, Freiburg 3-1 Hoffenheim.
