Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund 3-1: Player Ratings

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund 3-1

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich took on DFB Pokal winners Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup on Tuesday night. Bayern prevailed in a 3-1 victory over their Der Klassiker rivals, courtesy of a Robert Lewandowksi brace either side of a Thomas Muller strike. 

In a closely contested first period, it was BVB’s Yousouffa Muokoko who had the ball in the net first, although the 16-year-old’s goal was ruled out for offside. Four minutes before halftime, Bayern eventually broke the deadlock. A cross from Serge Gnabry from the left hand side found striker Robert Lewandowski, whose powerful header gave the keeper no chance. 

Bayern doubled their lead four minutes into the second half with Thomas Muller tapping in from close range. 

Dortmund however, found a way back into the game with an emphatic strike from captain Marco Reus in the 64th minute. The Bavarian club did not take long to restore their two-goal cushion, with substitute Corentin Tolisso forcing an error out of Dortmund defender Manuel Akanji. Tolisso won possession high up the pitch and played in Lewandowski, who coolly dispatched his chance past Gregor Kobel. 

Lewandowski’s second of the night put Bayern 3-1 up and beyond the reach of Dortmund, giving Julian Nagelsmann his first trophy as Bayern manager.
