The Bavarian giants now stand alone at the top of the Bundesliga with 18 points from 7 games. On the other hand, Dortmund slump to third, behind RB Leipzig who enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 victory against Freiburg.

First Half 

Erling Haaland had a brilliant chance to open the scoring 24 minutes into the match, but his shot on goal was off target. Robert Lewandowski managed to tap in an amazing cross from Serge Gnabry shortly after, but his goal was ruled out for a marginal offside by VAR. 

Joshua Kimmich was taken off after half an hour as he picked up an injury following a challenge made by him on Erling Haaland. Corentin Tolisso replaced the German in midfield.

Marco Reus eventually put Dortmund in front as a brilliant low cross from Raphael Guerreiro ended up crashing into the roof of the net as the German shot the ball beyond Manuel Neuer. 

After Thomas Delaney gave away a clumsy free-kick at the edge of the box, David Alaba’s shot found the back of the net in injury time following a deflection. 

Second Half 

Haaland had a chance right off the bat to make it 2-1 but missed again. On the flip side, Bayern got off to a great second half start as Robert Lewandowski managed to get his goal following a cross from Lucas Hernandez. 

Leroy Sane came off the bench and found the back of the net in ten minutes, following a neat break assisted by Lewandowski. 

Erling Haaland finally managed to get his goal after Guerreiro found the forward making a great run behind the opposition line. The Norwegian slotted the ball past Neuer to give the hosts some hope late in the game. 

However, it was too little, too late as another Lewandowski goal was ruled out by VAR and it prevented Dortmund from losing 4-2 on the day. 

Man of the Match: Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

The Polish striker could have had himself a hat-trick against his former club, but the first and the last goals scored by him were ruled out for offside. He eventually managed to head in a great cross from the left-wing, and also provided Sane with an assist to seal all three points for the treble winners.
