Bayern’s Bundesliga Title Defense Slips Further Away After Dortmund Loss

GTBCO FOOD DRINL

March 30, (THEWILL)- Bayern Munich’s hopes of claiming a 12th consecutive Bundesliga title took another massive hit on Saturday as they suffered a 2-0 home loss against rivals Borussia Dortmund. This result ended Dortmund’s 11-game winless run in Der Klassiker fixtures while potentially signalling the end of Bayern’s domestic dominance.

The game got off to a blistering start for the visitors, with Karim Adeyemi opening the scoring inside 10 minutes. Julian Brandt’s defence-splitting pass released Adeyemi, whose pace proved too much for Bayern’s backline as he slotted past the helpless Sven Ulreich in goal.

Despite Bayern controlling large spells, they struggled to truly trouble the resolute Dortmund defence led by the outstanding Mats Hummels. The veteran defender made numerous vital blocks, most notably clearing Eric Dier’s goal-bound header off the line with an acrobatic boot in the first half.

After the break, Bayern continued fruitlessly pushing for an equaliser. Felix Nmecha and Harry Kane went close, but Dortmund stood firm before substitute Sébastien Haller set up Julian Ryerson to seal a famous 2-0 win in the dying minutes.

The victory sees Dortmund leapfrog RB Leipzig into the Bundesliga’s top four UEFA Champions League spots. For Bayern, a 13-point gap to leaders Borussia Dortmund with just seven games remaining makes retaining their title an extremely long shot.
