Only a weak capital letter would separate Bayern from add his eighth Bundesliga in a row. The ‘Klassiker’ seemed like a ‘final’ to measure Dortmund’s real aspirations in the domestic championship. A local win would have brought Borussia closer to just one point from the lead, but dreams are dreams. The reality is that the Bavarian team was superior and he relied on a lonely but precious both of Kimmich to practically sentence the league. Haaland, today less protagonist, ended up being replaced by physical discomfort.

Signal Iduna Park. Behind closed doors.

Of course, just half a minute had passed and Boateng already had to take a shot from the Norwegian on the same goal line. The German did not have to sweat, since the shot was tame after overcoming a Neuer who left to abort a dangerous send in depth. They were happily promised by Lucien Favre’s team, who continued to insist in the first few minutes where Bayern seemed not yet to be on the green.

Gradually Flick’s pupils balanced the duel and the danger began to be borne by Bayern. This time it was Piszczek the one who lowered a shot from Gnabry from the small area. Only five minutes later, Eat Bürki demanded with a powerful shot. Both ends did not share ownership since the exhibition at Stamford Bridge. And boy did it show.

Borussia managed certain moments of respite and over the half hour of meeting they managed to see Manuel Neuer up close. Unlucky. Hazard imprecise, little of Brandt and desperate Haaland without being able to scratch the ball excessively. Not at least in situations like the ones you like.

To the rhythm of Kimmich

The first part was beginning to take a long time for the ‘borusser’ & mldr; and when Bayern smells blood he doesn’t forgive. Goretzka warned with a shot to boat soon that Bürki repelled but the goal could not repeat in a Kimmich Vaseline two minutes to rest. Subtle touch from the front to seal a flag goal. He did not have enough to manage the team at his whim from the core but he initialed his performance seeing goal. Total footballer.

After the break Favre introduced Sancho and Emre Can by Brandt and Delaney to shake up the team a bit. Far from achieving it, Bayern continued to oil their machinery and each play was synonymous with danger. Bürki avoided Goretzka’s 0-2 with a great stretch down while his companions, demoralized, chased shadows. Of course, in the first combination with face and eyes of Dortmund, Haaland was close to a draw. Crossed left-footed shot that deflected Boateng on the ground with some controversy, because the central defender did it with his arm. No one complained and the VAR did not enter. Go on.

However, the action helped Dortmund gain a few meters and put an end to Bavarian dominance. Haaland’s injury, who left the field with knee discomfort, did not prevent the ‘borusser’ team from putting some fear in the body of those of Flick, too sunk behind and with a minimum income on the scoreboard. With more heart than head, just Dahoud tried Neuer from afar.

Bayern was able to finish the match but Lewandowski sent his left-footed shot to the post and the subsequent actions lacked precision. It was not necessary, since the electronic was no longer altered. There are 17 victories in the last 18 games for a Bayern that seems not to have accused the stop due to the coronavirus. Only Leipzig has managed to scratch two points for a team that remains undefeated in this 2020.
