Talking Fussball – Dark horses on the gallop: Growlin’ Ro-grr Schmidt among the trampled (MD8 Review)

Match day eight in the Bundesliga brought more wins for most of the ‘surprise’ top teams in this young season of change. RB Leipzig, Hertha BSC and Hoffenheim all kept pace with FC Bayern München by collecting three points. The odd man out was 1.FC Köln, and you get the feeling they’d have found a way to win if they hadn’t been playing Hertha themselves.

Among the teams to suffer defeat at the hands of one of that group was Leverkusen, whose coach Roger Schmidt was a bit too aggro in his dispute over a foul call with opposite number Julian Nagelsmann for the DFB’s taste. Schmidt is now set to miss two games with a touchline ban.

Matt and Terry discuss Schmidt’s ban, preview the upcoming DFB Pokal second round, and wrap up the storylines from MD8. Hope you enjoy it!
