Davies starts again but 10-man Bayern lose big to Eintracht

BERLIN — Eintracht Frankfurt routed 10-man Bayern Munich 5-1 in the Bundesliga to give visiting coach Niko Kovac an unhappy return to his former side on Saturday.

Kovac, who coached Frankfurt to a German Cup win over Bayern in 2018, saw his former side end its 16-game winless run against the Bavarian powerhouse.

Bayern’s Jerome Boateng was sent off in the 10th minute for bringing down Goncalo Paciencia as the last defender. Referee Markus Schmidt initially awarded the home side a penalty after Paciencia fell in the area, but changed it to a free kick after consulting video replays.

Filip Kostic scored in off the far post in the 25th, and Djibril Sow made it 2-0 after more speedy Frankfurt play nine minutes later.

But Bayern can still count on Robert Lewandowski. The Poland striker showed all his prowess to elude two defenders with a turn before prodding the ball past Frederik Rönnow in the 37th.

With that, Lewandowski extended his Bundesliga record of scoring in the first 10 league games.

It was as good as it got for Bayern, however, with David Abraham, Martin Hinteregger and Paciencia all scoring in the second half to deal the defending champion its second defeat of the season.

Also, Leipzig routed hapless Mainz 8-0, Borussia Dortmund beat previously unbeaten Wolfsburg 3-0, Werder Bremen drew with Freiburg 2-2, and Borussia Mönchengladbach maintained its one-point lead with a 2-1 win at Bayer Leverkusen.

Union Berlin was hosting Hertha Berlin in the first Bundesliga derby between the city’s biggest clubs later Saturday, one week before it marks 30 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

The chief of the United Auto Workers union announced Saturday he would take a paid leave of absence amid an ongoing federal probe into alleged corruption at the top of the organization.

“The UAW is fighting tooth and nail to ensure our members have a brighter future,” UAW President Gary Jones said in a statement, which did not specify a reason for the decision. “I do not want anything to distract from the mission. I want to do what’s best for the members of this great union.”

The union said Rory Gamble, the second-in-command at UAW who led recent efforts to reach a labor deal with Ford Motor Co, would serve as the interim president effective Sunday. Gamble has been a member of the union since 1974, according to its website.

The announcement came after a vote by the UAW executive board to grant a leave of absence to Jones, whose home was raided by the FBI in August as part of an investigation into fraud and misuse of funds at the union. Jones has not been charged in the four-year probe.
