Bayern’s victory over Dortmund marked a turning point in this Bundesliga season. Since the Bavarian ogre seems unstoppable.
Another game this year – next Friday against Wolfsburg to close the first leg of the Bundesliga – and the Bayern will be able to go on vacation for three weeks. With the feeling of duty accomplished. This Tuesday on the greasy and damaged lawn of Stuttgart, the Munich residents opened the 16e lifting of the German championship on an offensive festival (0-5).
Ten days after their controversial success in the Klassiker against Dortmund (2-3), and while they have dominated in the meantime Barça in C1 (3-0) and Mainz (2-1), the Bavarians unfolded in hostile terrain, initially carried by a Gnabry well and truly found. Author of a hat-trick, the Mannschaft striker and native of Stuttgart, who had not found the loophole in the Bundesliga for almost two months, killed the suspense on both sides of the break (40e, 53e). Completing his personal work at the 74e minute.
The end point, then, of a real wave which saw the VfB concede three goals in the space of five minutes, Lewandowski, the essential Polish scorer of Bayern, having gone there with his double (69e, 72e) to give more substance to this great Munich victory. With this new success on the national scene – with an anecdotal and symbolic title of autumn champion – the Rekordmeister temporarily offers itself nine steps ahead of the German elite. Opposed Wednesday to the red lantern Greuther Fürth, Dortmund will then try to reduce this gaping gap.
