Bundesliga and Ligue 1 reigning champions, Bayern and PSG had to drop points at home last weekend as Union Berlin and Marseille continue their positive trend.

Die Rotten’s exciting start finally ended last weekend while playing host to Borussia M’Gladbach. Daniel Farke’s men managed to frustrate the home side almost throughout the game and hold them in a 1-1 tie. They even took the lead first as Marcus Thuram found the back of the net after taking advantage of the counter attack. Thomas Muller and Co had several chances in the six yard box but most of them were denied by Gladbach’s goalie, Yann Sommer. Sadio Mane’s goal was even disallowed at the first half. Bayern eventually managed to avoid their first defeat this season as Leroy Sane bagged an equaliser on 83rd minute.

It may still be at the early stage of the competition but Julian Nagelsmann’s side can not tolerate any unsatisfactory performance as last weekend. Interestingly, it is not Borussia Dortmund who entails them now but Union Berlin. They just trounced Schalke 6-1 on the road. Die Roten must be careful with their potential threat in the future.

In the meantime, Le Parisien was also held in 1-1 draw while welcoming AS Monaco. Christophe Gaultier’s men had to struggle to open the scoring from Messi, Neymar, Mbappe and the wing back, Achraf Hakimi. Unfortunately, none of their attempts could get past Alexander Nubel and three of them only hit the goalframe. PSG even conceded first as German international, Kevin Volland slotted home at the first half. On the verge of suffering their first loss, Neymar became the saviour as he converted the penalty successfully at the second half. Their classic rival, Marseille still entails them after crushing Nice in the away fixture last weekend. The former Neymar and Messi’s teammate in Barcelona, Alexis Sanchez netted a brace to help his team mount to the second on the table. Here are the results of matchday three in French top flight.
