Bayern Munich 4-2 Borussia Dortmund |Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski's Klassiker shootout brought to an abrupt end by brutal Jerome Boateng foul


Lewandowski and Boateng reacted to Dormund Striker Erling Haaland's stunning start to Der Klassiker in very dynamic ways.

   Robert Lewandowski's response was rapid, with the Bayern ace cancelling out the Borussia Dortmund forward's early double by the break.


   Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng, thinking, bided his time before taking Erling Haaland out of the match in regard to a crude rake down the back of the Norwegian's right foot just before the break.

  Jerome Boateng  intervention was defensibly even more influential than that of Bayern Striker Lewandowski.

  Erling Haaland had tried to played on after being left with cuts and bruises around his ankle but was advised to substituted just before the hour mark with the match tied at 2 goals apiece.

   Shorn of the services of their star striker, the fulcrum of their attack, Borussia were Silent of their attacking threat.


   Dortmund retreated into a desperate rearguard action but their resistance was finally fragmented with 2mins of normal time of the game remaining, when Goretzka volleyed home from the edge of the area.

  Robert Lewandowski completed his hat-trick in the dangerous seconds to give a misleading complexion to a match that was really much in the balance until Erling Haaland's enforced withdrawal of the game.

   Borussia Dortmund had lost their 4 previous Bundesliga clashes with Bayern Munich.

   However, they were dreaming of a shock victory when their goalscoring sensation struck twice in the opening nine minutes.

   Erling Haaland's first goal arrived after just 74 seconds of play, with the Dortmund striker finding the bottom right corner of Bayern Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer's goal with a left-footed strike from outside the area that took a slight deflection off Bayern defender "Jerome".


   His second owed everything to a brilliant BVB breakaway, with Nico Schulz and Thorgan Hazard combining to leave Erling with a tap-in.

  Bayern Striker was never going to take that lying down, of course.

 The prolific Pole, who has now scored a staggering thirty one (31) times in 23 Bundesliga appearances this compaign, levelled matters with a simple finish of his own, after good work on the right flank from Former Manchester City Man "Sane", and then he coolly converted a penalty rightly awarded by VAR for a foul on Coman.

   The stage was, thus, set for an epic second-half showdown between defensibly the two best centre-forwards in the world right now. But it was brought to an abrupt end by jemore Boateng's intervention.

  The centre-half was forced off injured himself later in a one-sided second half with a muscular problem but that was of little consolation to either Erling Haaland or Borussia Dortmund.

   The harm had already been done.
