Bayer Leverkusen back at the top of the VBL

The Bayer 04 Leverkusen side made effective use of match days 5 and 6 and regained the North West Division's lead. However, the top favourite from Bremen is still not in perfect sharp. Nevertheless, the gamers from the Weser were able to make up some places on the table.


For the Leverkusen players, the matchday started perfectly. In goal-laden duels, the Werkself Gamers Kai "deto" Wollin and 'Marc_LDW23' Landwehr defeated HSV 7-1. But in the second game, the Leverkusen team had to be content with 4 points. Against Vfl Bochum, the Bayer Gamer did not get beyond a 4-4 win. Especially Cihan 'Cihan' Yasarlar from Bochum played strongly. He could defeat deto with 5:1. Overall, was it a successful matchday for the Bochum side. Also, against Eintracht Braunschweig, they could score many points. Eintracht was defeated at 7:1. So the Vfl could secure third place.


The position between Bayer Leverkusen and Vfl Bochum is held by Borussia Mönchengladbach. The foals could score 12 points on Tuesday. First, they defeated Schalke 04 by 7:1, and, in the next match against SC, Paderborn Borussia Mönchengladbach could convince. The Borussia side defeated Paderborn by 5:2.


The defending champion from Bremen experienced a mixed matchday. First, Megabit and Co. had to accept a sensitive 7:1 lose against Vfl Wolfsburg. But against Eintracht Braunschweig, the Bremen team did not lose and thus secured 9 points. SV Werder Bremen continues to collect 10 points and is currently in 4th place with 26 points.


FC Cologne, which was still leading the table before the 5th matchday, has slipped to 5th place. The schedule can also explain this. The Cologne team only had to play one match, which means they have one match less than their competitors. But in this game, the FC Gamers could not convince. Against FC ST. Pauli, they had to be content with a 4:4. The FC ST. Pauli was able to forget his not very successful game against Holstein Kiel. Here the gamers had to give in to the Kiezkickers with a 7:1 defeat. The Kiel side, on the other hand, presented themselves in a strong form that evening. Because also in the second game, the "Störche" could collect 6 points. Hannover 96 had to admit defeat against Kiel with 6:3. Through this, they significantly improved their points account and, with 21 points, are now in 8th place in the Virtual Bundesliga table of the North-West Relay.


At the end of this table, we will find the HSV. The team from Hamburg caught a bad day on Tuesday. With two 1:7 defeats against Leverkusen and Vfl Wolfsburg, the Hanseatic team only managed to score 2 points. So they come last on the table with 15 points. One place ahead is FC Schalke 04 with 17 points. However, both teams still have one match to play. Eintracht from Braunschweig, on the other hand, has completed all games. The Braunschweig team currently occupies the last three places with 18 points.


SC Paderborn could make a massive step in the table on Tuesday. In addition to the two points from the 2:5 defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach, the Paderborn team scored six more points against Hannover 96. The VBL North-West Relay will continue on 1 December with the next double match day. Then the match days 7 and 8 will follow.
