With Manuel Neuer sidelined for a lengthy period, Bayern Munch needed to figure out a quick-fix plan for their goalkeeping department. A massive priority indeed. Fortunately for the Bavarian giants, they managed to acquire the signature of Swiss International Yann Sommer.

Sommer is no stranger to the Bundesliga, having spent close to a decade with Borussia Monchengladbach where he made over 270 appearances, which included impressive performances against Bayern.

Bavarians head coach Julien Nagelsmann stated that a new goalkeeper would only need a short period of time to fit in, and Sommer showed that he was ready to step up to the plate, securing his new club a 1-1 draw against Nagelsmann's former team RB Leipzig on Friday. 

Sebastien Haller, meanwhile, finally made his return to the Bundesliga after a hefty stint on the sidelines receiving treatment for testicular cancer.

He did so on Sunday in Dortmund's match against Augsburg, who gave them a real run for their money. A match of constant back and forth, which was closed off by USA international Gio Reyna's wonder strike to see BVB win 4-3. A fitting return for the Ivory Coast international.
