Bundesliga MD11 – Bayern ride high into international break after Klassiker win, Hamburg take three points

This match day had everything – two top of the table clashes: One versus two in the one you know about (BVB-FCB), three versus four in the other one (RBL-H96). Both delivered thrills. You had a match in Wolfsburg that looked like it would be a mid-table snoozer morph into a six-alarm barnburner. You had a Hamburg team whose attack had been on life support score three and win for the first time in weeks.

James Thorogood and Alex Chaffer are strapped in this week to make sense of it. Aidan Rantoul produces. Enjoy!
