Borussia Monchengladbach were only able to hold on to the Bundesliga lead for 24 hours as FC Schalke 04 and Bayern Munchen won today, leapfroging into the lead. The two title contenders now top the tabel with ten points, one more than Gladbach. FC Nurnberg travel to Energie Cottbus tomorrow with both teams having the chance to go top with a win.
With Oktoberfest celebrations in the middle of their second weekend, the big match next week will be Weder Bremen hosting Kasey Keller and his mates on Saturday. Both will need the three points to solidify their standing in the top half of the table.
