Bayern Munich 3 – Borussia Dortmund 1 (Bundesliga, February 8, 2009) Bayern’s difficult start to 2009 in the Bundesliga continued in the early stages against Dortmund as Nelson Valdez took full advantage of Demichelis’ terrible slip to open after just 2 minutes. Bayern equalised 20 minutes later, Ze Roberto turning home Ribery’s parried shot. (First half highlights here.) But just as it looked like being another disappointing day for Munich, Miroslav Klose popped up with two late goals (first and second) to steal the points.
Energie Cottbus 3 – Hannover 1 (Bundesliga, February 8, 2009) Rangelov put Cottbus ahead in the first half, and after Andreasen had received his marching orders for Hannover, Rangelov quickly chalked up a second. Angelov bagged the third before Fahrenhorst scored a consolation.
