Hoffenheim's Bundesliga fairytale continues

Bundesliga newcomers Hoffenheim stormed back to the top of the league with a display of attacking football that left their rivals dumbfounded. The small club from the village of Hoffenheim, playing their first season in the Bundesliga, have had a dream start, similar to that of high-flying Hull City in the English Premier League. A backheel from Demba Ba, a cracker from Carlos Eduardo and a penalty from Vedad Ibisevic sealed a 3-1 victory over strugglers Bochumand - yet another three points for Hoffenheim to put them back on top of the table.

Bayern Munich's recovery is continuing after a woeful start to the season, and they were thankful for star man Franck Ribery who capped a powerful display with a goal to seal a 2-1 away win against Eintracht Frankfurt. Martin Jol’s Hamburg, still smarting from their recent 3-0 defeat to Hoffenheim, also kept their title hopes alive with a 2-0 victory over Stuttgart thanks to a Piotr Trochowski penalty and a deflected goal from Joris Mathijsen to move within two points of the unlikely leaders. The game was marked by another angry outburst from Stuttgart keeper Jens Lehmann, who was furious that Jarolim had gone down too easily to win the spot kick.

The other game on Wednesday night ended 1-0 as Dortmund scraped an away win at Cologne. Hoffenheim fans will love waking up this morning and seeing their club at the top of the league. The question is, can they stay the distance?
