Bundesliga: Borussia Dortmund draw lets Bayern Munich take first place
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Borussia Dortmund dropped its first points of the season in a 1-1 draw at Hoffenheim on Wednesday and fell behind Bundesliga leader Bayern Munich.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the 55th to cancel out a first-half goal by Hoffenheim's Sebastian Rudy.
Bayern's 5-1 victory over Wolfsburg on Tuesday, thanks to the five-goal performance of Robert Lewandowski, left the defending champion with a perfect 6-0 record and a two-point lead over Dortmund.
Borussia Monchengladbach and Stuttgart both posted their first wins of the season to move from the bottom of the table, while Schalke beat Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 and Bayer Leverkusen edged Mainz 1-0 with a first Bundesliga goal for Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.
Monchengladbach won 4-2 at home against Augsburg under interim coach Andre Schubert. Stuttgart won 3-1 in Hannover to send the home team to the bottom.
Rudy slotted inside the far post in the 42nd and Aubameyang capped Dortmund's dominance with his seventh goal of the season after Gonzalo Castro chested the ball down to the striker, who drove home from close range.
But his team saw its 11-match winning streak across all competitions come to an end.
"We were dominant, but not consequential enough," Dortmund's coach Thomas Tuchel said. "We were just missing something today."
Hernandez ended Leverkusen's three-match losing streak when his shot from just outside the box was slightly deflected in the second half.
Schalke moved into third after late goals from Joel Matip and Leroy Sane. Matip headed in a corner, while substitute Sane rounded the Frankfurt 'keeper to secure the victory. Schalke is three points behind Dortmund.
In Monchengladbach, the home side struck four times inside the first 21 minutes through Fabian Johnson, Granit Xhaka, Lars Stindl and Mo Dahoud. Paul Verhaegh converted two penalties after the break for Augsburg.
Stuttgart also got its first points despite falling behind to an early goal from Kenan Karaman. Christian Gentner leveled in the 16th, Timo Werner made it 2-1 two minutes later and Alexandru Maxim completed the victory in injury time.
Hannover coach Michael Frontzeck is beginning to feel the heat only six matches into the season.
