Football: Schalke shock Leverkusen to leave Bayern top
BERLIN (AFP) - Bayer Leverkusen blew their chance to go top of the Bundesliga on Saturday as they lost their 100 percent record with a 2-0 defeat at resurgent Schalke 04.
Defending champions Bayern Munich stay top of the league despite dropping their first points of the season with a 1-1 draw at Freiburg on Tuesday before their dramatic 5-4 win on penalties over Chelsea in Friday's Uefa Super Cup final.
In the battle between the Bundesliga's other two Champions League representatives, Schalke hauled themselves up into mid-table and left Leverkusen joint-third behind Bayern and second-placed Dortmund, who are at Eintracht Frankfurt on Sunday.
Both Germany left-back Dennis Aogo, who has joined Schalke on loan from Hamburg, and Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng, who signed a four-year deal from AC Milan on Friday, started as the Royal Blues picked up their first league win of the season.
