First reactions and observations
- Frankly, words are short. How did Bayern Munich lose that in the last minutes? That was the opposite of clutch.
- The less that is said about the referee, the better.
- Substitute Matthijs de Ligt was not good for the header at the end of the match.
- The fact that Manuel Neuer saved a scoreless attempt by Modeste that was a mishit means BVB was unlucky not to get all three points here.
- Bayern in crisis again? Could be?
90+4′ — Goal. Modeste makes it 2-2.
90′ — Kingsley Coman is shown a second yellow for a tactical error.
82′ — HOW DID NEUER KEEP THAT? HOW DOES MODEST MISS?
74′ – Goal. Youssoufa Moukoko makes it 2-1.
52′ — GOOOOOAL! Leroy Sane makes it 2-0! Another assist for Musiala.
45′ — Subtitles: Kimmich, Coman and Stanisic continue ahead of Sabitzer, Gnabry and Davies.
Halftime Observations and Analysis
- Bayern Munich has not been good at all. Is there another Madrid-esque performance coming up? The score is currently 1-0.
- Aside from his goal, Leon Goretzka’s performance spans a spectrum from fair to poor.
- Marcel Sabitzer it is not today.
- Neither did Benjamin Pavard.
- Jude Bellingham should have been sent off for kicking Alphonso Davies in the head. Absolute joke.
33′ — GOOOOOAL! Leon Goretzka makes it 1-0!
30′ — Neuer saves Guerreiro’s shot. This was a bad half of Bayern.
Kick-off: We’re on our way at Signal Iduna Park!
One hour until kick-off: We have lineups! Looks like Joshua Kimmich couldn’t make it after all, but that’s still a solid Bayern Munich lineup. Julian Nagelsmann has never beaten Edin Terzic before in his career, but he will change that tonight – all in front of Dortmund’s iconic Yellow Wall.
For the first time in thirteen years, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will face each other in a Bundesliga clash with neither side leading the way. For some, this could mean the game won’t be as high-quality as previous years, as neither side has had a particularly good season. For others, this means that the three points offered could have a huge impact on the outcome of the title race.
Bayern has been known in recent seasons for handing out huge deficits to BVB, but all those matches took place at the Allianz Arena. At the Westfalenstadion, in front of their famous Yellow Wall, Dortmund tend to give back as best they can. Julian Nagelsmann will miss the services of key players such as Thomas Muller and Lucas Hernandez, while Joshua Kimmich travels to Dortmund but remains in doubt. On the BVB side, they will have to do without Marco Reus.
For Julian Nagelsmann, this is an opportunity to prove that his team has completely shaken off the September blues and is ready to continue winning titles this season.
It’s Bayern time.
