Bay Munich 3 – 1B Dortmund


Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 on Saturday to claim their 10th consecutive Bundesliga title with three games remaining in the season.

First-half goals from Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski put the hosts 2-0 up before Emre Can reduced the deficit with a 52nd-minute penalty. Jamal Musiala netted Bayern’s third goal seven minutes from time.

Bayern – 12 points clear of second-placed Dortmund – have now won 31 Bundesliga titles since the top division was introduced in 1963, and 32 German league titles in all.

Bayern were desperate to seal the title – their only trophy of the season – in the league’s big game in front of a home crowd of 75,000 to make up for their shock Champions League quarter-final exit to Villarreal earlier. this month.

They seized their first chance through Gnabry, who controlled the ball from the edge of the box with just one touch and volleyed a ferocious volley past goalkeeper Marwin Hitz, who was left frozen in place.

Gnabry put the ball back in the net on the half hour mark but his effort was ruled offside. The league’s top scorer Lewandowski did better in the 34th minute when Gnabry gained possession and Thomas Muller, who became the first player to win 11 Bundesliga titles, fed the Pole who crossed the legs of Hitz for his 33rd league goal.

Most consecutive league titles in major European leagues:

10 – Bayern Munich (Bundesliga; 2013-present) 9 – Juventus (Serie A; 2012-20) 7 – Lyon (Ligue 1; 2002-08) 5 – Juventus (Serie A; 1931-35) 5 – Turin (Serie A 1943, 1946-49) 5 – Real Madrid (Liga; 1961-65 & 1986-90) 5 – Inter Milan (Serie A; 2006-10)

Lewandowski – whose future at the club is uncertain with a contract extension beyond his current 2023 contract yet to be finalized – is on track to claim the Bundesliga’s top scorer for the seventh time and the fifth time in a row .

Dortmund were awarded a penalty early in the second half when Marco Reus was brought down by Joshua Kimmich and Can converted him. The visitors kept up the pressure but failed to score again despite efforts from Reus and Erling Haaland.

Instead, it was Bayern who scored through substitute Musiala to secure the title as the champagne went out in the boxes for Bayern club bosses and coach Julian Nagelsmann celebrated his first league crown.

It was Bayern’s eighth successive league win against Dortmund, who have not won a match in Munich since 2014.
