Lewandowski's three-pack: Bayern turn a 0-2 against BVB

  • Title : Lewandowski's three-pack: Bayern turn a 0-2 against BVB
Date: 07 Mar 2021    


Bayern defended their lead with a 4-2 win against Dortmund on Saturday evening. The Munich team were down 2-0 early on, but then showed a very good reaction. In the end, the Munich team forced the threesome thanks to Lewandowski.


Bayern coach Hansi Flick made two changes to his starting XI compared to the 5-1 win against 1. FC Köln: Müller and Coman started for Musiala and Choupo-Moting (both bench).

Dortmund coach Edin Terzic plagued some injury concerns. So there were a total of four changes after the 1-0 cup win in Gladbach, two of which were forced: Schulz, Zagadou, Meunier and Hazard started for Guerreiro, Sancho (both muscular problems), Bellingham and Morey (both bench). In the case of black and yellow, the changes also went hand in hand with a system change, the guests acted with a chain of three or five and, last but not least, with four players at the back.

BVB and Haaland get going furiously

The game had barely started when Neuer had to get the ball out of his net: Kimmich lost the ball that hit Haaland - and the Norwegian hit from 18 meters slightly deflected by Boateng into the right corner (2nd). This start played the very handy Borussen in the beginning, of course, fully in the cards. And it should get better. Via Dahoud, Schulz and Hazard, the ball landed in the penalty area at Haaland, who only had to complete a fantastic move (9th). Incidentally, Bayern were only 0: 2 after nine minutes in a home game in the Bundesliga: in January 1977 against Duisburg.

2-2 between Lewandowski and Haaland

But with the early double strike, the Westphalia had irritated the Munich. The home side were now running, pushing for a quick connection. Sané missed it (17th), but Lewandowski made up for it when he pushed a low cross from Sané, who had let Schulz get off, over the line (26th).

The Munich then stayed tuned, pushing the black and yellow deep into their own half. BVB hardly had any relief in this phase, allowing themselves to be pushed in far too far back. Terzic then switched to a back four, but that didn't help either, because the equalizer should fall before the break. Dahoud met Coman in the penalty area, referee Marco Fritz initially let go, but decided according to the pictures on a penalty. Lewandowski solved this task safely as usual, marked the 2-2 halftime score and also equalized in the duel between the two strikers (44th).

Haaland has to go

BVB also started well in the second round, Hazard put the ball on the side netting (47th). In this phase it was an open game in which Dortmund also dared to be more confident again. After an hour, however, there was a setback for Borussia, because Haaland could not continue after a foul by Boateng, he was replaced by Tigges. The Norwegian had probably injured his right heel.
Two late Bayern goals

Bayern were superior in the field, but did not create any clear chances for a long time. The degrees of Lewandowski (62nd), Gnabry (74th) and Kimmich (81st) could at best be booked under the category half chance. But at the end of the game, the hosts simply wanted the victory more - and forced it. A failed Meunier defense landed at Goretzka, who met with a volley to make it 3-2 (88th). The cheers had barely faded away when Lewandowski made everything clear with his 31st goal of the season and made the final 4-2 (90th).
