Germany’s top soccer rivalry, Der Klassiker, went to Bayern Munich for the sixth time in a row in Bundesliga play following a 3-2 win at Dortmund on Saturday. Former Dortmund star striker Robert Lewandowski made his former team pay once again, scoring in each half, including late penalty kick converted in the 77th minute. The visitors were the stronger team throughout, surpassing Dortmund in shots, shots on target, possession and pass accuracy. 

Dortmund, however, did take the lead through Julian Brandt five minutes in. Bayern rallied with goals from Lewandowski and Kingsley Coman in the first half before Erling Haaland’s sensational equalizer in the second half. With Gio Reyna still out due to injury, Dortmund could not respond after going down 3-2 as manager Marco Rose received a second yellow card.

Here’s a look at the winning penalty, which was nearly saved. 

The win gives Bayern a four-point lead over Dortmund atop the Bundesliga table. Both teams return to action midweek in the UEFA Champions League, which you can see live on Paramount+. Dortmund play Besiktas on Tuesday, while Bayern face Barcelona on Wednesday.
