No defeat is like the other. Time is scarce, times hard, and sometimes hurtful, but what was the, what had to experience Borussia Dortmund in Munich on Saturday? As a table leader of the BVB travelled to Bayern, as the victims of a publicly celebrated the humiliation he went back home. The top game in the Bundesliga was only in the tabular sense. 5:0 (4:0) won the Bavaria in front of 75 000 spectators in the sold-out Munich Arena. They are now one point ahead of the Dortmund, which sounds more exciting than it should be after this demonstration of power. Six games are still to come – but he who doubts since Saturday that the German champion will be called once again in may, Bayern Munich?
"congratulations to my team," said Bayern coach Niko Kovac. "That was a sensational game, the first half outright. The victory is well deserved in this amount.“ Next to him, his Dortmund colleague, Lucien Favre was sitting, he nodded, partly in the affirmative, and partly in mourning. There was something else. Shy Favre said, "it might have been a different game if..." Yes, if his team had scored the first goal. So quickly the story of the hapless Dortmunder was written, it needed but the mention of a preamble.
It may sound silly, but perhaps the most beautiful turn to this one-sided evening of the Dortmund showed. To imagine after just five minutes, as for a moment, as Dortmund had made it to the top. According to Jacob Bruun Larsen's Pass in the deep Marco Reus ran back on the left wing to the baseline, fit wise, directly at the feet of Mahmoud Dahoud. The shot directly, but not in a two thirds empty goal, but the post. "Since we already had a bit of luck," admitted Kovac.
The Dortmund shook in vain
as for this lock of the Dortmund football works, so it should also work in Munich. It is idle musing about what would have happened after a quick 1:0. Dahouds Chance remained a unique piece, an empty promise. Not a single Time they lost the Dortmunder after promising in the Munich penalty area. BVB are remembered only because of its bright yellow bibs to the team that it once was. A mysterious fatigue that gripped the Dortmunder legs and heads. Bayern did not give a shit drum and shot quickly to the first goal, and though in a rather profane way. Thiago lifted a corner kick from the left into the penalty box, Mats Hummels held his head and refused to then the goal celebration. As you do so, if it goes against the former club.
Dortmunder shook, she tried to be normal, to calm the situation. In vain. It was Dan-Axel Zagadou made a fateful concentration error. Far in front of the own goal he wanted to shift the game in the middle, but this is precisely what Robert Lewandowski had speculated. Bavaria's top scorer, in between, went with Dortmunder immigrant, lifted the Ball over goalkeeper Roman Bürki and met the cross in the air, lying for the second Time to the Dortmund goal. That was after not even 20 minutes early preliminary decision. And Dortmund? The giant of a man Zagadou was overwhelmed in a duel with Lewandowski so hopelessly as the outside defender Diallou, with Serge Gnabry and Lukasz Piszczek with Kingsley Coman. In Central midfield you have not seen Thomas Delaney and Axel Witsel rare, so without any ideas, the front Jadon Sancho took place at all. The 3:0 was just before the break through Javier Martínez beautiful flat shot is more than worthy of – and over the next 4:0, scored by Gnabry in a header from Thomas müller's great flank, and wondered no more.
To break to love in the arms Zagadou in the cabin and left Julian Weigel his place in the centre of defence. The Dortmund is no longer made quite as much in the wrong, and the Bavarians were happy with your muscle game. Nearly bodiless both teams brought the game over time. It was an event without serious competition. The one wanted to enjoy a little bit of the sweet glory of an easy victory, the other counted the minutes down until it was finally over. After all, the have done the Dortmunder almost, until shortly before the end of Lewandowski is a cross-pass from Gnabry to 5:0 over the goal line wurschtelte.
