The nail biting match was held at Westfalenstadion and was a close game – it looked like either team could come out on top at many points during the game – eventually though Bayern Munich managed to win.
Like a greyhound out of the gates, The game started off full of action, with the German Julian Brandt putting one past Bayern Munich to put Dortmund ahead within 6 minutes. There was hardly time for Dortmund to rest on their laurels though – Robert Lewandowski managed ot bang one past Dortmund keeper Kobel almost straight after Brandt’s goal, equalising.
For almost 40 minutes the action was frantic and end to end, But Kingsley Coman managed to snag one for Bayern Munich in the 44th minute, sending Dortmund into the locker room at half time a goal down.

But Bayern Munich ended up having the last laugh when they were awarded a penalty in the 77th minute for a hand ball. Lewandowski stepped up to take it and didn’t disappoint, sending the visiting Bayern ahead 3-2.
This great result for Bayern means that they stayed at the top of the table. That’s all well and good – but what can we take away from this incredible game?
- Robert Lewandowski is an absolute force to be reckoned with.
Lewandowski’s impressive performance against his former team has helped cement him as one of the best strikers in the world at the moment. Whilst he is feared for his positional play and technique, his finishing is also on par with his other impressive talents (Not surprising with his over 500 professional goals so far and the second highest amount ever scored in the Bundesliga.)
Lewandowski is one of the most feared players in the Bundesliga and this game just helped reinforce that statement.
- Jude Bellingham is only going to get better
Whilst he’s only 18 years old, the English player has had an almost frightening level of consistency. There’s only good things in store for the youngster as his style of football is something like that of a more mature player.
What the future holds for Bellingham no one knows, but we certainly imagine it’s going to be bright – According to rumours apparently Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are interested in him!
- The Bundesliga is heating up
Whilst this match is just one of the many in the league, it proved just how exciting the race for the title is. At the moment, it’s really only between the two top teams – Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund – but with only 14 matches played so far, no one can call how the table is going to play out!
This game was one of the reasons why many people view the Bundesliga as one of the top leagues to watch in terms of action and unpredictable finishes. Whilst Bayern cleaned up last year, the second to fifth position was an absolute battle of wills between the teams and incredibly close, with some incredible players bound to produce some truly memorable moments. With games like this one between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich you can be sure that the season is going to be an interesting one!
