In the absence of the Argentine superclásico in the Copa Libertadores final, German superclassics took a step forward and offered a show of power to be able between Dortmund and his arch-nemesis of Bayern, whose hegemony seems to end.
The key to the meeting was not tactics, that is, it was not determined by the duel of the formations (since both Lucien Favre and Niko Kovac proposed variations of 4-4-2), but in the strategy: Bayern took the initiative and Dortmund waited for the counterattack.
Marco Reus took advantage of the vast space behind the Bavarian back to stand alone in front of Manuel Neuer in just five minutes. His opportunity failed, but he proved it Both Boateng and Hummels have lost a lot of speed.
So and all Bayern managed to come forward on the scoreboard in the 26th minute. Serge Gnabry has raised a service on the right that has found the front of the Polish Robert Lewandowski, who in turn has shown that the yellow defenders, Zagadou and Hakanji, are still a bit inexperienced in the kick of the highest demand.
In the pictures: Triumph! Dortmund came from Bayern and took a seven-point lead
It was five minutes into the second half when Reus was back against Neuer in the small area. The attacker punched the ball at the goalkeeper's exit and this was knocked down for reporting a maximum penalty. Reus himself has deceived his companion in the Mannschaft put the 1-1.
Those of Niko Kovac resurrect thanks to Joshua Kimmich, the best player of Bayern. Lahm's heir touched the final result and continued to ask for the ball until it was delivered and assisted Lewandowski for his double. The Westfalenstadion fans shouted out of the game that did not exist (a yellow player qualified despite being out of bounds).
But Dortmund is back from his fueros. Favre has included Paco Alcácer, top scorer of the Bundesliga, to increase the revolutions and, already with a double nine with Reus, the siege of the visitors was unstoppable. Reus has connected a good volley to equalize the score with two goals.
A few minutes later, Alcácer was hiding behind Monaco to play more advanced than recommended and advanced against Neuer, who went to bail. However, the former FC Barcelona punctured the ball gently to push it to the back of the net and put the final 3-2.
The victory of Dortmund strengthens its leadership in Germany and puts seven points in the middle with Bayern. After years of absolute Bavarian monarchy, this season seems to be the revival of electrifying painting black and yellow
