BERLIN (AP) Bayer Leverkusen's fine start to the season continued with a 3-1 Rhine derby win at Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
Leverkusen, which opened its league campaign with a 3-2 victory over Paderborn last weekend, produced a spectacle of attacking football with three first-half goals. Alfredo Morales' late strike was too little for the home side.
Promoted Union Berlin claimed its first Bundesliga point with a 1-1 draw at Augsburg despite having Keven Schlotterbeck sent off late for a bad challenge. Sebastian Andersson had just scored the cult club's first goal in the league.
Hoffenheim defeated 10-man Werder Bremen 3-2 to give new coach Alfred Schreuder his first Bundesliga win, and Borussia Monchengladbach coach Marco Rose also enjoyed his first league victory thanks to quick-fire late goals from Breel Embolo and Alassane Plea in a 3-1 win at Mainz.
Freiburg won 3-1 at promoted Paderborn.
Bayern Munich plays at Schalke later.
