Cologne - With the international break meaning no domestic matches for the next two weeks, the Bundesliga went into overdrive on Matchday 2, producing goals and talking points aplenty.

From the arrival of Xabi Alonso to the return to form of Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, via Bayer 04 Leverkusen's perfect start and Shinji Kagawa's transfer back to BVB, was on hand to round up the major events from the weekend's action...

Bayer 04 Leverkusen are the only side with a 100 per cent record and sit top of the Bundesliga table for the first time in five years. They took a while to find their feet in the 4-2 win over Hertha, but new coach Roger Schmidt's high-pressing philosophy has found willing disciples in the BayArena's crop of young stars. Karim Bellarabi excelled again, following up scoring the quickest goal in Bundesliga history on Matchday 1 with a sublime volley.

Xabi Alonso made an impressive start to his FC Bayern München career as Pep Guardiola's side drew 1-1 with FC Schalke 04. The 32-year old, whose debut came a day after he signed for the Bavarian giants, looked customarily assured in midfield, completing 61 passes, the second-most of any player, during his 68 minutes on the field. Alonso also provided Bayern with a cool head against a fired-up Schalke side, who took a share of the points after Benedikt Höwedes' equaliser.

Marco Reus celebrated his call-up to the German national side in fine style as Jürgen Klopp's men won 3-2 away to FC Augsburg for their first three points of the season. The 25-year-old scored one and created another as Dortmund made amends for their 2-0 home defeat to Leverkusen last week. BVB's weekend got even better on Sunday when they confirmed the return of Shinji Kagawa from Manchester United on a four-year deal.

If Hamburger SV are known as the Bundesliga dinosaurs by virtue of being the league's oldest, or rather only ever-present club, then SC Paderborn would be the Bundesliga babies, having only just played their second top-flight game. That has not prevented the newcomers from causing a stir though, as they are still unbeaten after a 2-2 draw with Mainz on Matchday 1 which they followed up with a maiden Bundesliga win in their 3-0 drubbing of HSV on Saturday to sit in second in the table.

Two games, two goals, and four points on the board is not a bad start for promoted side 1. FC Köln, who are the only Bundesliga club yet to concede this season. Last week's 0-0 draw with Hamburg laid the foundation for another solid defensive display away to Stuttgart, where they kept their hosts at arm's length with a disciplined performance, while making the most of their chances through and (pictured). The Billy Goats look so at home at this level it's as if they'd never left...
