How Bayern Munich could line up against Borussia Dortmund

How Bayern Munich could line up against Borussia Dortmund

Leaders Borussia Dortmund twice came from behind to beat German champions Bayern Munich in a five-goal thriller. Paco Alcacer came off the bench to score the victor for the home side and keep Dortmund four points clear of Borussia Monchengladbach at the top of the table, and open up a seven-point gap over third-placed Bayern.

Dortmund are now four points clear at the top of the table and seven points ahead of the Bavarians.

A game with some incredible goals, you can relive Der Klassiker with a look at the main points of action in today's Dortmund vs Bayern clash - you'll not want to miss the wonderful second from Dortmund's Marco Reus!

Bayern slowly started to take control and Lewandowski eventually made the pressure count on 26 minutes, crashing a bullet header from a cross by Serge Gnabry past Dortmund's stand-in keeper, Marwin Hitz.

But the scores were level for only three minutes.

Then Achraf Hakimi squared the ball for Reus, who somehow sidefooted over the bar. Despite protests, the penalty stood following another look by the video assistant referee and Reus made no mistake from the spot. A neat interchange of play led to Joshua Kimmich standing the ball up for an unmarked Lewandowski to nod home from just a few yards out.

Dortmund nearly got themselves level again when Sancho's pass found Reus, who knocked the ball past Neuer only for Kimmich to make a remarkable clearance off the line. The Belgian picked out Alcácer, who outpaced the Bayern defence to slot past Neuer.

Lewandowski got the ball in the back of the net for Bayern deep in stoppage time with a back-heel but he was flagged offside as the visitors went down 3-2 to a spirited Dortmund.
