Talking points from the Bundesliga weekend: PARTY POOPER

Bayern Munich's traditional visit to the city's Oktoberfest beer festival on Sunday was far from a celebratory affair following their 1-0 loss to Augsburg and their four-game winless run in the league -- the longest in 20 years. "The traditional Wiesn visit. I am always happy to come back to the Oktoberfest but today it is harder. We cannot be satisfied with the way the season has gone so far," Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn said. His team are fifth in the Bundesliga.

"The team must show different form against Leverkusen (on Sept. 30) in order to get back on the path to success." UNION RECORDS

The mood could not be more different in the capital where Union Berlin's runaway success has seen the Bundesliga minnows top the standings after seven matches, while their unbeaten record stretches to 14 matches and into last season. Forward Sheraldo Becker tops the scorers' list with six goals already while Urs Fischer's team also have the league's best defence.

KOVAC PRESSURE VfL Wolfsburg coach Niko Kovac is under mounting pressure with the Wolves in 17th place after seven matches.

Kovac, in his first season at Wolfsburg, still has the backing of club bosses who said there was currently no discussion regarding the coaching position. "Obviously it is a complicated situation," Wolfsburg sports director Joerg Schmadtke said. "We won't question the coach now and we won't hang him out to dry. We have to come out of this as a unit."
