Wolfsburg 1 – Borussia Dortmund 3 (Bundesliga, December 13, 2009) Dortmund had the perfect start at Wolfsburg as Lucas Barrios put the visitors in an 11th minute lead and the Barrios struck again just two minutes later. The reigning champs were then forced to put their collective tail between their legs as Patrick Owomoyela netted Borussia’s third before the interval. Grafite pulled a goal back for Wolfsburg early in the second half.
Mainz 1 – Stuttgart 1 (Bundesliga, December 13, 2009) A tidy near-post finish from Pavel Pogrebnyak handed Stuttgart an 11th minute lead over Mainz. However in the final minutes “Mad” Jens Lehmann found himself at the centre of the action as the goalie barged into Aristide Bance (who fell over like a wimp), giving away a penalty and getting himself sent off with Eugen Polanski netting from the spot.
