Yes, the #VW scandal is sending shock waves around the world, in Germany and definitely in poor ‘ol #Volkswagon ‘s home town of #Wolfsburg but it must have felt like a slight tremor compared to the shock that the #Bundesliga team from Wolfsburg felt today in a 9 minute spell that one Mister #Lewandowski unleashed on them as he hit 5 goals (all well taken, especially the spectacular finish on the 5th goal) to give mighty #Bayern a 5-1 win at the #AllianzArena after being 0-1 down to a side that looked good for it’s lead and it’s 3rd position in the table. But once #Pep brought the Pole on as a half-time substitute, the game turned on it’s head as attack after attack that the Bavarians unleashed, ended in goal after goal at the feet of the incredible Lewa and Wolfsburg completely disappeared from the game. It’ll take them a while to recover from this – hopefully for them, a little less time and money than VW will need to mitigate the clean-diesel crisis they’ve got themselves into.
Over in the #CapitalOneCup, top of the table #ManchesterCity visited bottom of the table #Sunderland and showed exactly why both teams occupy the positions they do – City were electric while the Black Cats were pathetic and the eventual 1-4 scoreline was immensely flattering to the hosts. #LeicesterCity did the double over fellow high-flyers #WestHam beating them 2-1 and Championship side #HullCity upset #Swansea 1-0 in the other game that mattered.
In the #LaLiga #AtleticoMadrid beat #Getafe 2-0 thanks to their new goal-machine #AntioneGriezmann, sending them top of the table (for now) while the embattled #DavidMoyes (That seems to be his default state at all the teams he coaches, doesn’t it?) was given a reprieve as his #Sociedad side finally got a win in a 3-0 thrashing of hosts #Granada and in the #Ligue1 #PSG flexed their muscles as #Pastore #DiMaria and the #Zlatan scored to give them a 3-0 win over visitors #Guigamp and send them 4 points clear at the top of the table.
