Bundesliga: Wolfsburg edge Gladbach to move up to fifth; Dortmund down Bochum

Wolfsburg 2 – Monchengladbach 1 (Bundesliga, October 18, 2009) Wolfsburg went ahead just before the interval when Alexander Madlung scored. Christian Genter doubled their advantage in injury-time and that proved crucial as Borussia went down the other end and scored through Michael Bradley but Wolfsburg took the victory.

Borussia Dortmund 2 – Bochum 0 (Bundesliga, October 18, 2009) Goals either side of the break from Lucas Barrios and Neven Subotic sealed the win for Borussia.
