Borussia Dortmund 1-3 Bayern Munich: as it happened

FT: Borussia Dortmund 1-3 FC Bayern 

90'   A comfortable win for Bayern. The Bavarian outfit superior over the 90' with just brief glimmers of class from BVB. Pulisic outstanding for the men in yellow.    

90'   3 minutes pf time to be added as BVB almost make it 2-3, Castro missing the ball by inches. 

Excellent perserverance from Pulisic to win the ball back, the American feeds the Spaniard who fires a delightful right footed curler into the corner. A fine consolation goal....


Gol. A beauty from Bartra. BVB 1-3 FCB 

87'   Bayern fans enjoying the 0-3 score line at Signal Iduna Park

85'   Into the final 5'.. Could all have been so different had Yarmolenko taken his first half chances.

Change for Bayern: Vidal on with James making an exit. Decent performance from the ex-Madrid player.

81'   Strange one here ....Match official Tobias Stieler pulls up with a muscular injury.... gesturing towards the fourth official ....game held up momentarily

81'   Into the final ten we go ... still plenty of noise coming from both sets of fans despite the 0-3 score line 

Change for Bayern too as Javi Martinez exits with Rudy his replacement

Sancho come son for BVB, Yarmolenko making way

Bayern celebrate ! 3 points heading to the Bavarian capital ...

Next up for Bayern is a Bavarian derby with Augsburg as Dortmund head to Bavaria too to face VFB Stuttgart.

74'   More banners of protest from the Yellow Wall...

Martinez carded 

74'   Palls of smoke engulf the Signal Iduna Park from flares hailing from the Bayern end of the ground....

Change for FCB....Alaba off and Rafinha in 

72'   Where has it gone wrong for Dortmund... 5 points ahead of Bayern before Jupp Heynckes took over...now struggling and lacking identity .... 

Alaba's goal !!!

70'   Pulisic plus 10 for Dortmund tonight !  Alaba goes to ground pulling up with a muscular problem, looks like a calf issue..... 

68'   Debate on-going about the goal and if the Pole touched the ball or should the Bundesliga creidt the Austrian international with the goal.

Kagawa off-Goetze on (BVB)

Lewandowski make it 3 !!!! The Polish player getting the slightest of touches on an Alaba cross....

66'   Just as the ball breaks to the Japanese player who fires his shot goalbound and it richochets away   

64'   Goetze primed to come on with Kagawa the likely player to be subbed

Card for Alaba after a late challenge on Yarmolenko

64'   Dreadful miss from Lewandowski, plenty of space and time and screws the ball wide of the BVB post. 


Protest banner in Italian from the home fans ... 

Possession stat on the hour mark: 44-56%, the visitors still bossing the game ...

Toprak also into the book for a foul on Robben 


57'   BVB   sing the home fans 

56'   Why do the BVB defenders let Robben onto his left side ???  Keep him on the right side ! I can see that I'm a Sunday park player ; )    

53'   The Yellow Wall raise their voice making great noise as BVB win another corner...poor delivery from Kagawa....

51'   Bayern fans unfurl a banner pre match at the Signal Iduna Park.... 

51' Bosz looks to his bench... time for a change ?

49'   Pulisic pulls the ball back from the by-line with no yellow shirt able to fire home .... blunt looking in front of goal but all the danger for the home sidew coming from the boots of the American international 

48'   Where was the BVB defence? Lewandowski totally unmarked in the 6 yard area and heads straightat the BVB keeper...almost 0-3....

47'   Good play from BVB down the right flank as they earn a corner....Toljan fires the rebound high & wide

46' Second half about to start with the home side starting the action.... An early goal from BVB is ideally what the game needs ...

Bernat watching at home....

45'+1'   Any way back for BVB? Difficult to see from the first half performance .... stay with us and we'll be back imminently with all the second half action from the Signal Iduna Park.

45'+1'   There we go... Mr. Stieler calls time on the half.... Bayern very much in control...Two goals ahead thanks to Robben and  Lewandowski

45'   Into added time we go... Bayern very much in control ... Red and White flags still waving in the corner of the Nord Tribune ....

43'   Very poor evening from Aubameyang so far this evening...Pulisic and Kagawa looking like the danger men  for the yellow clad side. Yarmolenko free again and yet again fires his shot at the Bayern keeper....poor from the Ukraine international...   

Tolain in for the injured Sokratis ...another blow for the home side as the rain starts to fall in Dortmund....  

BVB Twitter account suffering now .....

39'   It's the visiting fans making all the noise now ... A bitter blow for the home side who had managed to ride out the storm pre opening goal.

38'   Borussia Dortmund 0-2 FC Bayern 

38'   What audacity from the Polish international with a cheeky back hell that takes a ricochet from Weigl to loop into the BVB net .... 

37' Gol.... Bayern make it 2 !!!!1

Marcel Schmelzer recd. a yellow card in the 9th minute btw !

Hard to argue with this.... very much at the heart of all the FCB play

32'   Kagawa fed through and his shot drifts inches wide (it got a deflection from Coleman) ... the game really open now with BVB looking brighter....


30'   Yarmolenko fed through...one on one with the keeper and foitres his shot straight at Ulreich... Bayern break and the ball finds Lewandowski who fires his shot on target but is palmed over 

30'   An anxious looking Peter Bosz patrols the Dortmund area .. His side have lacked a creative spark so far this evening at the Signal Iduna Park. 

25'   Dortmund give the ball away and Robben finds Lewandowsli with a swift pass, the Polish international unable to find his shot with yellow shirt players swarming

Possession stats after 25': BVB 45% - FCB 55%

Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben celebrates scoring their first goal of the night

23'   Nice play from Pulisic releasing Kagawa who is well robbed by the men in red despite half hearted appeals for a penalty kick form the home fans. 

21'   Good chance for Dortmund as Ulreich saves well from Aubameyang... 

20'   Apart from a bright opening flurry, BVB have offered little....Bayern clearly in control now with the goal giving the Bavarian side added confidence 

View from the Dortmund side after the goal.... 

18' Nearly a second for Bayern as Javi Martinez almost latches on to aranging cross field ball but misses by inches...

16' Gol, Gol , Gol ...Robben fires Bayern ahead .... Delightful left strike from the Dutchman, picking his spot and leaving the BVB keeper with no chance 

View from the Bayern end at Signal Iduna Park  

12'   The game yet to burst into life with all the action taking place around the center of the pitch.... 

10'   Very comfortable for the visitors now with slick and controlled passing play from the men in red. 

Bayern Twitter feed in action already !!!!!

Here's the pic of the Yellow Wall again simply as it's so spectacular. Still on my bucket list of football weekend trips !   

5'   Bayern now establishing a degree of control on the game as whistles ring out from the home fans.

3'   Dortmund badly need the win with RB Leipzig winning earlier against Hannover 96, leapfrogging into second spot as the Bayern revival under Jupp Heynckes continues and the Bavarian outfit top the Bundesliga pile with 23 points.

2'   Bright and intense start here from the home side 

Off we go .... it's Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich ... the biggest domestic gamne in the Bundesliga ... 

Die Klassiker ... BVB in their traditional yellow and black...Bayern in all red.... as both sides take to the pitch .. a packed Yellow Wall awaits ...

Currently a cloudy evening in Dortmund with a 14% possibility of rain during the game... 

All set at the Signal Iduna Park ... 5 mins to go ...  

Can Dortmind's luck change this evening. The men in yellow and black managed 27 shots during Wednesday's Champions League tie against APOEL against the three of the visitors in a game which ended up 1-1.  

In the search for pace and width, here's a winger stat-off 
Bayern Munich XI:
Borussia Dortmund XI: 

Heynckes' last Der Klassiker came in the 2013 Champions League final as Bayern won 2-1 with goals from Mandžukić and Robben. Gündoğan scored for Dortmund on that occasion. 

This evening's game will be the battle of the strikers, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Robert Lewandowski both sitting atop the Bundesliga top scorers chart with 10 goals apiece. Both came to the Bundesliga at the same time (2013) and since then they have scored a combined total of 202 goals (Lewandowski 107 and Aubameyang 95). The Dortmund striker will be keen to break his four-game scoring drought, while Bayern's Polish marksman will be chomping at the bit after being rested in mid-week.

It most certainly is. 

Fret not! Here's how to catch this evening's game at Signal Iduna Park.

A Bayern-heavy dream team. Voters obviously don't trust the Dortmund defence! 
Can't argue with that, although Peter Bosz and his side will want to have something to say about it. 
  Dortmund plug it in and crank it up ahead of tonight's clash and will be hoping they are pretty, oh so pretty by the end of the evening. 

Hello and welcome to our Bundesliga belter as Borussia Dortmund host Bayern Munich. It's the current top two and the perennial big boys of recent years in German football.
