Most neutral Bundesliga viewers have agreed that this fixture is going to be very tight. Well, most neutral Bundesliga viewers were arguably right till Bayern proved them wrong. Not only did Borussia Dortmund play their worst defensive game of the season, but they were also very absent in the midfield and attacking departments. Thus, Bayern Munich punishes the Black and Yellows at the Allianz Arena 5-0.
Bayern More Organized than Borussia
Despite an early promising chance by Mahmoud Dahoud for Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich scored in the 16th minute thanks to a Mats Hummels header.
After that, the visitors and previously Bundesliga leaders started making expensive defensive mistakes. Therefore, the Bavarians take advantage of these oversights to score not one or two, but three more goals. Then both teams go to the lockerrooms 4-0, advantage Bayern.
A Shy Second Half for Marco Reus and co.
The second half starts with Weigl replacing Zagadou in the center back position. This helped bring back the balance to Borussia Dortmund’s defense, but it didn’t help with the scoreboard.
After that, the second half was mostly more chances for Bayern while the Black and Yellows kept defending against an unwanted fifth goal. However, Robert Lewandowski didn’t agree and scored his second goal and fifth for Bayern in this fixture. The game ended 5-0.

The Title is Yet to be Settled
A very wise thing for Borussia Dortmund’s players to do is to forget this one. It’s true that Bayern are going 1 point clear in the table, but there are 6 more fixtures to go before the title is decided. Therefore, Marco Reus & co must focus on winning every upcoming fixture and hopefully realize a long-awaited dream.
From the 2005 Borussia Dortmund, till the title winning squad in 2011 and UEFA Champions League runner up era, Mostafa was always a very passionate Black and Yellow supporter. You would often see him in Coffee shops and Bars on Matchdays. He will be wearing a BVB jersey and sipping on a German beer and most likely swearing at the referee.
