Berlin, Nov 19: Michael Ballack scored against his former club in a 2-0 win for Bayer Leverkusen at Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga on Friday.
Kevin Trapp's mistake allowed Ballack to score in the 54th minute, when the former Germany captain shot straight at the Kaiserslautern goalkeeper from 20 yards (meters), only to see the ball slip through Trapp's fingers and into the net.
Another former Kaiserslautern player, Sidney Sam, made the game safe in the 70th, when Lars Bender picked out the unmarked Leverkusen winger to score with a low shot.
Ballack played with a protective mask to cover a broken nose.
Leverkusen—which hosts Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday—climbs to sixth while Kaiserslautern remains 12th ahead of the weekend's games.
