The top sides in the Bundesliga also all enjoyed wins. League leaders Bayern Munich came from behind at home to Hertha Berlin to win 3-2, with Mario Mandzukic scoring twice. The high-scoring encounter was predicted by our own Raphael Honigstein who tipped over 3.5 goals at 1.85.
Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen kept hold of Bayern’s coattails and are both just a point behind. Dortmund won impressively, with a 3-1 result away at Schalke. Bayer Leverkusen had a tougher time against struggling Augsburg, but came back from a goal down to win 2-1.
Monaco drew level on points with Paris St-Germain this weekend, as the reigning champions slipped up at St Etienne. PSG went 2-0 down but kept their unbeaten record intact, with goals from Edison Cavani and a last-minute strike from Blaise Matuidi rescuing a 2-2 draw.
Monaco had no such worries with a 2-1 win over misfiring Lyon, while Lille are just two points behind the big spenders after a 1-0 win at Nantes.
