Another away win at Fortuna Düsseldorf | Comfortbale 3-0 result | Schick, Werner and Mukiele on the scoresheet | Table-toppers for the time being

The Bulls got off to a flying start away from home when Patrik Schick opened the scoring almost immediately (2'). Julian Nagelsmann's team continued to create early chances but Marcel Sabitzer (4'), Christopher Nkunku (19') and Stefan Ilsanker (21') all failed to find the back of the net.

The score remained 3-0 until full time and the three points secured the Bulls a spot at the top of the Bundesliga table, at least for the night.
