No winner in the German Clasico: Borussia Dortmund drew 2-2 with FC Bayern in the last minute of the best match of the 9th week.
A crazy finish in the German Clasico: as everyone prepares for Borussia Dortmund’s new defeat against FC Bayern, BVB striker Anthony Modeste took the BVB fans 2-2 with a header to delight and delight. Not long ago, the new Dortmund player had miserably forgiven.
Black BVB series is broken
In a duel dominated match, Bayern’s goals were scored by Leon Goretzka (33rd) and Leroy Sane (53rd). Youssoufa Moukoko (74′) and Modeste saved Dortmund in the 95th minute. In the Bundesliga chart, both Bayern (3rd) and Dortmund (4th) are behind Union Berlin and Freiburg, both of whom only played on Sunday.
With the draw on Saturday night, the Westphalians scored against record champions for the first time after seven league defeats in a row. His last BVB victory dates back to November 2018 under Lucien Favre.
Goretzka uses weakness
Dortmund got their first big shot in the best game of the 9th week thanks to Guerreiro (30th), who tested Manuel Neuer with a hard volley from a narrow angle in the Bayern penalty area. It came as little surprise that Bayern’s Goretzka took the lead soon after. After the crossover from Jamal Musiala to Leon Goretzka, the BVB defense was very passive. Goretzka exploited the weakness and scored with a solid low kick from a central position to give Bayern the lead.
BVB goalkeeper Alexander Meyer is weak in this scene. The Westphalians reacted with a small shock at first and only soon had a chance to equalize with Donyell Malen (35th). But Neuer cleverly shortened the angle and parried. After that, the game flattened a bit until the break. The host lacked penetration power in the front third of the attack. Bayern acted more confidently until the break, leaving behind the lead.
Bitter moment before the halftime whistle for Alphonso Davies at Bayern. Bek was slapped in the face by Jude Bellingham, who had been forewarned and needed to be replaced, visibly dazed. Davies was hospitalized for further testing. “There is a suspicion of concussion, which is not surprising given the kick in the face,” said coach Julian Nagelsmann, and was surprised that Bellingham was not sent off by referee Deniz Aytekin.
BVB with momentum from the cabin
After that, BVB came out of the dressing room with a bit more momentum and got another chance to equalize Guerreiro (48th place). The Portuguese withdrew with his direct acceptance. However, after that, the guests were tougher and took advantage of the weaknesses in Dortmund’s defense. Mané missed after brilliant preliminary work by the mighty Goretzka.
Sané then took advantage of the irregularity in Dortmund’s defense and made the score 2-0 (54th) with a powerful but not entirely indefensible shot. Sané could still make the decision in Dortmund’s crowded penalty area, but failed due to the brave defense of Meyer (64th).
As the game progressed, BVB lacked the necessary conviction in its actions. In addition, the Bayern defense around the mighty Dayot Upamecano became increasingly secure. Julian Brandt and Youssoufa Moukoko were too often left to their own devices and kept hanging out during occasional advances by the Blacks and Yellows.
Modest hit the corner
However, first new hopes sprouted in black and yellow when Moukoko (74th) brought back BVB with a pass from substitute Anthony Modeste. After a low cross from substitute Adeyemi at the 83rd minute, Modeste stumbled across Manuel Neuer’s great chance to equalize.
In the hectic final stage, Bayern’s Coman (90th) is shown a red card. While no one expected Dortmund to score, Modeste recorded the acclaimed equalizer for BVB after a corner at Bayern’s far post.
