Dortmund record rare Munich win to all but end Bayern’s title hopes

Bayern Munich edged closer to relinquishing their Bundesliga crown after goals at the start and end of the game saw Borussia Dortmund win 2-0 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.

Julian Ryerson puts Borussia Dortmund two goals up against Bayern Munich.

However, Karim Adeyemi’s well-taken strike opened the scoring after just 10 minutes, before Julian Ryerson doubled the visitors’ lead with just seven minutes left to play as Dortmund won at the Allianz for the first time in almost exactly a decade.

Kane did head home late on, only for it to be ruled out for offside by the Video Assistant Referee as Munich suffered just a second home loss in the league this season.

As a result, Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen now need just three more wins to be confirmed German champions for the first time in the club’s history.
