Power Demonstration In The Classic: FC Bayern Goes To The Giant Duel With Real
In a strong initial phase, Franck Ribéry (4) and Lewandowski (10th) were quickly in the lead, but the substitute weak Dortmunders seemed astonishingly unaffected. Raphael Guerreiro (22nd), then the guests were equal and well in the game, before the excellent seal in their typical way a damper missed (49). Lewandowski made the final score with a foul elf meter, which was due to him (68), but had to be replaced with a shoulder injury a little later.
"It is important that we trust ourselves," emphasized Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel before the game at Sky. In fact, Ousmane Dembélé ran straight into the penalty area after just one and a half minutes - but pulled. A minute and a half later, the Bavarians signed up for the match: Ribéry hit the flank of Philipp Lahm one day after his 34th birthday from 13 meters. A little more than three minutes were played.
Dortmund? We're unimpressed, distrusted a little, bravely pushed forward - but did not come back behind. Ribéry was fouled by Marc Bartra, Lewandowski converted the free-kick - because Dembélé had turned away in the wall. A little more than nine minutes were played. The Dortmunders, with whom Bartra and captain Marcel Schmelzer was ready again, were overwhelmed by the start of the hosts.
And yet: Dortmund was still a little bit more confident. BVB looked a little like a match between men and guys, but he remained undaunted. Because Ribéry did not feel it necessary to pursue Felix Passlack, and Arturo Vidal did not clear enough, Guerreiro shortened with a tight shot from the penalty area. The Bavarians were now a bit lighter, Dortmund continued to play well.
The matchmaker gave the BVB more security in the defense, as easily as they could at the beginning on the gate of Roman Bürki storm, the Munich had now no longer. Only seals were not to be braked. With his sixth shot, he finally had success - his obligatory run had passed from the right side along the penalty area until the gap opened.
Once again, BVB had the chance to take the lead - the otherwise inconspicuous Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang tipped the ball past goalkeeper Sven Ulreich after a long pass from Sebastian Rode - Boatang but cleared just before the goal line (67). Almost in return, Roman Bürki took the lead in the Lewandowski penalty area, with penalties and number 26 for Poland. But also: Pain in the right shoulder pulled in the fall. The goalkeeper had to be replaced (72).
