European roundup: James Rodríguez inspires Bayern to Bundesliga summit

• On loan Real Madrid forward scores and assists in 3-0 win at Schalke
• Internazionale go top of Serie A despite surrendering 100% record

James Rodríguez made a stunning full debut for Bayern Munich as the Bundesliga champions returned to top spot for at least 24 hours with a 3-0 win at Schalke, while there was a change of leadership in Serie A, too, though Internazionale will be far less happy with only drawing 1-1 at Bologna, surrendering their 100% record.

For Bayern, Rodríguez scored one goal and had a hand in both the others as his side continued to ease the pressure on Carlo Ancelotti. The Italian coach came under fire after a recent loss at Hoffenheim but Tuesday’s result means Bayern have responded by scoring 10 goals without reply in their last three games.

Werder Bremen give Alexander Nouri breathing space … for now | Andy Brassell

Nouri was right to provide perspective after his side beat Mönchengladbach, calling it ‘a small step in the right direction. Many more,’ he added, ‘have to follow’

After the ride he’s had to endure since the Bundesliga restart, perhaps it’s unfair to expect Alexander Nouri to raise one eyebrow and drop a Mourinho-esque quote at the end of the game, even if it did bring victory. “You get perfection in the Chinese State Circus,” he reasoned after his team’s 2-0 win at Mainz gave everybody involved with the club a chance to exhale. Clunky, maybe, but most coaches who have been in a similar situation could probably empathise.

Either way, Saturday’s win was exactly what Werder Bremen needed – and exactly what Nouri needed, with the sporting director, Frank Baumann, ostensibly having backed him after last week’s loss to Borussia Mönchengladbach, even if he declined to go as far as to guarantee him a job on the other side of it, depending on the result. Baumann, a stalwart in the spine of the Bremen side that won the 2004 Bundesliga/Pokal double, called this “a real win,” and said it was, full of determination, “team spirit” (in Nouri’s words) and no little measure of enterprise.

Jaroslov Drobny sets tone in Hamburg and Bremen’s derby of dysfunction | Raphael Honigstein

Once they were northern powerhouses but the shambolic defending in the 2-2 draw highlghted just how far the two sides have fallen

“Drobo, Drobo,” the khal – sorry, the call – went from the stands. Hamburg fans took care to acknowledge a former favourite, goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny, on his return to the Volksparkstadion in the green and white of Werder Bremen. Before crossing the Nord-Derby divide this summer, the 37-year-old had spent the previous six years with die Rothosen, mostly left to his own devices by an array of bumbling defenders, forced to pick hundreds of balls out of his net with the dignified desolation of a man scouring piles of discarded betting slips for a forgotten winner.

On Saturday, though, Drobny was the enemy, a traitor for moving 128km down the A1 to the Weserstadion, and the “Drobo” chants were designed to hurt not please. Every nervous touch of the Czech stopper was accompanied by the gleeful, sarcastic repetition of his nickname by the home supporters. Markus Gisdol’s players knowingly targeted their former team-mate – “probably the worst footballing keeper of the league,” according to Welt – whenever he tried to kick the ball. The strategy paid off, instantly.
