Bayern Munich vs BVB: Analysis
Dortmund started with a back four and an early press. The Bavarians had more trouble starting the game, BVB recorded the conquest of the balls and came up with quick counterattacks. However, they were finishing around the penalty area and the goal was not threatened. Only in the 27th minute did the guests receive the first shot with a harmless shot from Haaland.
Bayern, on the other hand, scored from his first corner and immediately took control of the game with his lead behind his back. The FCB mostly attacked on the right flank, where the Guerreiro / Reinier duo repeatedly left too much space on the Dortmund side. In the case of BVB, the errors in the passing increased vehemently, and at the latest for the second Munich goal, faith seemed to be broken.
Coach Rose seemed to revive it during the break, because Dortmund was immediately much more active and also more consistent in duels – especially in the center. Since these ball gains, as in the first leg, it went fast forward, Reus seemed a little deeper. So the goal was not undeserved.
As a result, Bayern also looked vulnerable on the defensive. BVB remained in the game, repeatedly counterattacking and gaining business, but it was never really necessary. The locals, on the other hand, managed to get behind the Dortmund sixes a few times and spread the danger from there. Lewandowski had to decide the match, but Hitz reacted strongly (69 ‘). This work was eventually taken over by the alternating Musial, but overall Bayern lacked the right move to the goal.

Match Star: Serge Gnabry (FC Bayern)
Unstoppable by BVB defense in the first half. He played like crazy in the fight to extend his contract, including raising his salary. Fantastic hit at 1: 0, which also contributed to 2: 0 with a strong back pressure, meanwhile gave the expected 2: 0. In the 63rd minute, he received applause from the audience.
Flop Games: Reinier (BVB)
He started for the first time this season, but could not stand on the ground. The game went completely out of Brazil. He only won 31 ball events and did not win 20 percent of his duels.
Judge: Daniel Siebert
He correctly took back Gnabry’s alleged 2-0 after VAR intervention due to Offan’s Coman (30 ‘). Pavard was to receive a yellow card for a foul on Brandt (49 ‘) and ten minutes later he was to order a Frenchman for a penalty, because in a duel with Bellingham he first hit Dortmund and then the ball. It is therefore incomprehensible that VAR did not rectify the decision due to a manifestly incorrect decision.
