Haaland double pack is not enough – Bayern beat Dortmund thanks to Lewandowski hat trick
Even an early 2-0 lead is not enough for Dortmund to end the negative series against Bayern Munich. The leader and champion prevailed 4-2 in the top game of the 24th Bundesliga round.
In the 88th minute, Borussia Dortmund’s world was still okay. It seemed as if the team would travel home from Munich with something countable for the first time since April 2014 in the championship. The Champions League winner kept his pressure up until the end and was rewarded with two goals in the final phase. Leon Goretzka first scored the 3-2 with a volley on the edge of the penalty area, before Robert Lewandowski hit the final score and thus overcame the Swiss goalie Marwin Hitz for the third time.
Lewandowski had already scored twice in the first half and not only made up for the early 2-0 deficit, but also countered Erling Haaland, the other outstanding striker in the Bundesliga. The Norwegian scored the first exclamation mark with two goals in the first nine minutes, but had to be replaced after an hour with a sore right foot. In the duel between the two exceptional strikers there are now 31:19 goals for Lewandowski. The difference between the clubs is just as clear. With 16 points behind, Dortmund is again outside the Champions League ranks.
