The Bundesliga (German pronunciation: [ˈbʊndəsˌliːɡa], Federal League) is a professional association football league in Germany. At the top of Germany's football league system, it is the country's primary football competition. It is contested by 18 teams and operates on a system of promotion and relegation with the 2. Bundesliga. A total of 50 clubs have competed in the Bundesliga since its founding. Since the 1970s, FC Bayern Munich has dominated the championship, winning the title 21 times. However, the Bundesliga has seen other champions with Hamburger SV, Borussia Dortmund, Werder Bremen, Borussia Mönchengladbach and VfB Stuttgart being the most prominent ones. The Bundesliga is one of the top national leagues, currently ranked 3rd in Europe according to UEFA's league coefficient ranking, based on recent European performances. It is the number one football league in terms of average attendance and its average of 41,802 fans per game during the 2009-10 season was in fact only beaten by the Indian Premier League and the National Football League (NFL).

Germany was unusual, in that, unlike in most other countries, a unified national league structure was quite late in developing. The Bundesliga was not formed until 1963 and the structure and organisation of the nation's football leagues have undergone frequent changes right up to the present day. The league was originally founded by the German Football Association, but is now operated by the Deutsche Fußball Liga.

Bayern battle back for victory

Bayern Munich came back from a first-minute goal from TSG Hoffenheim to win 2-1 courtesy of a last-gasp effort from Daniel van Buyten.

Vedad Ibisevic had put the hosts in front and they held on for an hour before Thomas Muller levelled, with Van Buyten getting the winner in the 90th minute.

Elsewhere, Hannover continued their strong start to the new Bundesliga season with an impressive 4-1 win at home against struggling Werder Bremen.

Clemens Fritz's own goal in the 11th minute gave Hannover the lead before a Torsten Frings penalty after 36 minutes levelled things up. Didier Ya Konan restored Hannover's lead in the 53rd minute before Christian Schulz (79) and Mohammed Abdellaoue (90) added gloss to the scoreline.

Lewis Holtby scored twice to keep surprise package Mainz on top of the Bundesliga with a 2-0 home win over Cologne.

Bayern look to prevent Mainz record

Bayern Munich host Mainz this weekend with the record for the best start to a Bundesliga season in history under threat, although it is not the Bavarian giants who are chasing it.

Mainz have won their first five matches this season and they head to the Allianz Arena needing just two more wins to go down in the history books along with their hosts Bayern, who started with seven wins in 1995, and Kaiserslautern, who repeated the feat in 2001.

"It's absolutely incredible," Mainz coach Thomas Tuchel said after his side's 2-0 win over Cologne in midweek took them to 15 points for the season. "The way we played in the first half is the best football I have seen since I was coach here.

"I was really excited by it. With that kind of performance, we could play in the Premier League. The fans were fantastic and then we were rewarded with two late goals."

Mainz have developed a habit for surprises, as Bayern will remember from last season when they were beaten at the Bruchwegstadion, so that starting record really could be under threat.

Should Mainz beat Bayern, they would have to win against Hoffenheim and Hamburg to set a new record of eight straight wins.

Elsewhere in the Bundesliga this weekend, struggling Werder Bremen host Hamburg on Saturday evening and Stuttgart, who have also made a poor start to the season, are at home to Bayer Leverkusen.

Schalke won for the first time in midweek and they will be aiming to follow that up with victory against Borussia Monchengladbach at the Arena AufSchalke.

Wolfsburg have finally started winning with two victories in a week and they host Freiburg on Sunday with Kaiserslautern's match against Hannover rounding off the weekend's fixtures.

On Friday night, Cologne are in action against Hoffenheim with Eintracht Frankfurt's clash with Nurnberg and St Pauli's home game against Borussia Dortmund completing the sixth round of Bundesliga matches on Saturday.

Bayern chief demands improvement after loss

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has warned his club's players that they "must turn the corner'' after witnessing their second defeat of the season on Saturday.

Bayern were beaten 2-1 at home by league leaders Mainz to fall ten points behind the visitors and leave Rummenigge reminding the players of their responsibilities.

"You have got to say that we never got into the game from the very beginning,'' he said. "Mainz had a great willingness to run, they were aggressive and they played with passion. We did none of this.

"After the win in Hoffenheim we had hoped that we could get three more points today and climb the table. Now we have got to ensure that we turn the corner because ten points are certainly a lot. We really cannot be happy with our performance.''

Rummenigge is demanding an improvement on Tuesday when Bayern travel to Basle in the Champions League and then at Borussia Dortmund next weekend.

"The beautiful thing about football is that you can put things right again in three days' time,'' he said. "And we have to put things right because with a performance like that you will go nowhere in the Champions League, that's for certain, and not in the Bundesliga either.

"It is all about the players, not the coach. He is doing a fantastic job every day here. It is exclusively the team which is now required to move up a gear.''

Meanwhile, Hamburg coach Armin Veh blasted substitute Piotr Trochowski for the mistake which led to Werder Bremen's winning goal in Saturday's Bundesliga clash.

Hamburg fought their way back from two goals down to make it 2-2 before Trochowski gave away possession in midfield and Hugo Almeida put Bremen 3-2 in front in the 85th minute.

"I was incredibly annoyed with him,'' said Veh on Sky afterwards. "When you lose the ball so easily, particularly when you have just come on - there can be no argument for that. He should not be losing a tackle like that.''

Steve McClaren full of praise for in-form Grafite

Wolfsburg coach Steve McClaren praised striker Grafite for rounding off a perfect week after the Wolves picked up nine points from three Bundesliga games.

Grafite scored both goals in the midweek win over Hamburg and his next two goals were enough to see off Freiburg 2-1 on Sunday.

"I am very happy with him and his reaction,'' said McClaren. "He has waited patiently and he made the difference,'' added McClaren of the 2009 Bundesliga top scorer. Grafite has taken his chance.''

Grafite, 31, was a substitute in the Wolves' first three games of the season, but has not looked back since being restored to the starting XI. The win lifted Wolfsburg up to sixth in the table, above champions Bayern Munich, and McClaren was happy with his side's team spirit after they were being written off only a week ago.

"The key to this win was our mentality,'' he said. "It was a tough game but, in the end, it was a very hard-earned but even more important victory. We know that we can play better and we have to play better, but my team showed character.''

Wolfsburg travel to struggling Borussia Monchengladbach this weekend before hosting Bayer Leverkusen after the international break.

Van Gaal set to sign new contract with Bayern

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge expects coach Louis van Gaal to sign a one-year contract extension this week, despite his side's poor start to the season.

Van Gaal's current deal is due to expire next summer and he has made it clear that he would like to manage a national team in the near future, but negotiations over a 12-month extension are close to being concluded.

"We are not going to change our minds after one defeat,'' Rummenigge told Bild. "Quite the opposite - we are going to extend his contract this week. That will be a clear signal of how highly Louis is regarded at FC Bayern.''

Bayern made a slow start to last season and Van Gaal's job was hanging in the balance until a 4-1 win at Juventus in the Champions League and a revival in the Bundesliga saved him. He went on to lead Bayern to a domestic double and the final of the Champions League, where they were beaten by Inter Milan in Madrid.

As a result of that success, Van Gaal chose not to make any new signings this summer and to keep his faith in a winning squad. Rummenigge does not regret the decision not to spend money on reinforcements.

"The coach has this philosophy and we are fully behind him,'' he said. "The coach is doing an excellent job and it is not he but the players who are now under pressure to deliver the goods.''

Bayern busters Mainz hail coach Tuchel

Mainz forward Karim Allagui insists coach Thomas Tuchel deserves all the credit for his side's perfect start to the season although he claims nobody at the club is getting carried away.

Mainz have won their first six league matches, beating Bayern 2-1 at the weekend thanks to a cheeky backheeled goal from Allagui. But the forward says all he and his team-mates are doing is following the orders of Tuchel to perfection.

"It is like he has a book and we are writing it for him," he explained. He gives us the task and we have to solve them. In the game against Bayern, we looked for the weakness that the coach had told us about and then we struck."

Mainz can equal Bayern and Kaiserslautern's record of seven straight wins at the start of a season by beating Hoffenheim at the weekend, but Allagui is not interested in any records and is instead keeping is feet firmly on the ground.

"To be honest, I did not know that we could equal this record," he told Sport1. "We will first let the Bayern game sink in and then the coach will prepare us for our next task.

"I don't think that we need to think about targets but rather on the next game, and that is at home to Hoffenheim. We have to carry on from where we left off. Why should we think too far and lose points?"

While Mainz may not be thinking seriously about their title hopes, 10 of their Bundesliga rivals have now tipped them to go all the way and win the league in a poll conducted by the Bild newspaper.

"Of course Mainz can win the league," said Hamburg's director of sport Bastian Reinhardt. "If they remain in this form, they can beat everybody."

Blame players for Bayern slump, says Lahm

Bayern Munich defender Philipp Lahm has urged fans to blame the players for the club's disappointing form.

Bayern have won only two of their first six Bundesliga matches and are already ten points adrift of league leaders Mainz, who won 2-1 at the Allianz Arena at the weekend.

Club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has defended coach Louis van Gaal and questioned the players and Germany full-back Lahm is in full agreement.

"We have too many players who are performing below their level," he told the Bild newspaper. "If you play like that, then you cannot beat such a euphoric team like Mainz."

Rummenigge has ordered the team to "turn the corner" in tonight's Champions League tie with Basle, a game which Lahm says is now the most important game of the season.

Defeat in Switzerland would increase the media intensity on a club not used to failure.

"We cannot allow that to happen," said Lahm. "We have got to ensure we find our true form immediately. It is going to be really tough for us now to make up this ten-point deficit on Mainz and that is not what we wanted."
