Bundesliga match report Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund 06 April 2019


Dortmund were denied an early lead after Mahmoud Dahoud’s side-foot shot struck the base of the post seven minutes in.

The breakthrough sprung three minutes later when Mats Hummels dodged a few bodies to head down the middle of the net to Bayern ahead.

Bayern’s lead was doubled on 17 minutes after Robert Lewandowski capitalised on a defensive error to dink the ball over an on-rushing Roman Burki.

The Polish hitman wanted more, as he evaded past his marker to power a shot on goal which Burki pushed away moments later.

Burki was finally beaten, as Javi Martinez picked his spot from a sea of bodies following a well-worked move four minutes to halftime.

The lead grew bigger for the Bavarians two minutes later, as Serge Gnabry was left with time and space to head home Muller’s delivery.

With their tails between their legs, Dortmund unsurprisingly made a change at the restart in Julian Weigl for Dan-Axel Zagadou.

Bayern responded with a change of their own on 68 minutes after a slow start to the second half, with Kingsley Coman sacrificed for Franck Ribery.

The first chance of the second half fell after 79 minutes, with Lewandowski firing high and wide of a loose ball inside the area.

Bayern wrapped up the match with an 89th minute tap-in from Lewandowski following Gnabry’s cross to leapfrog Dortmund at the top of the league standings.
