Lewandowski beats Haaland with ‘help’ from Hummels

A few days after losing the Ballon d’Or in favor of Lionel messi, Robert Lewandowski He brought out his stripes to lead Bayern Munich to victory against Borussia Dortmund (2-3), who suffered the success of the Polish striker, author of a decisive double. The team of Julian Nagelsmann overcame the litmus test before welcoming Barça to the Champions League without risking anything, but always wanting to separate the Barça team, who are risking everything, from the round of 16, as expressed Thomas muller. Will be without Lucas Hernandez, defense injured in the ‘Klassiker’.

TO Lewandowski he is not affected by his individual setbacks. Always mark. It doesn’t matter what happens off the grass. Goals fall out of his pockets. Although this week he gave himself a ‘smack’ after finishing second in the Ballon d’Or, days after what for many was an injustice, he left for his resume two more decisive goals with which he maintains an impressive streak.

And the thing is, the German classic, number 132 in history, invited us to sit in front of the television to see two injured animals from the area. One, Lewandowski, wanting to show that he deserved the Ballon d’Or. The other, Erling haaland, hungry for minutes after reappearing against Wolfsburg last matchday after overcoming a hip injury.

The figures of both adorned the most spectacular duel in Germany. They danced back and forth. The 25 goals for the Polish striker in twenty official games (fourteen in the Bundesliga) for the fourteen (ten in the League) for the Norwegian in eleven official games heralded a spectacular battle in the areas.

Dortmund, without Haaland, although it was shipwrecked in the Champions League with a very tough elimination for the club chaired by Hans-Joachim Watzke, survived the tournament of regularity to the four absences of his franchise man. He won three of the four games without the Norwegian and appeared against Bayern with options to reach the leadership.

A single point away, a victory placed him in first place. He had to overcome a giant and proposed a match in which the center of the field was conspicuous by its absence to show off the fastest players. Bayern, without Joshua KimmichInadvertently he had to play that game. But how Haaland at Dortmund, he also had a very dangerous explosive quartet upstairs: Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sané, Thomas Müller and Lewandowski.

Dortmund made the most of their idea very early. Exactly, at four minutes, the time it took to open the scoring by means of Julian Brandt, that the first goal was made with a jog inside the area that closed with a right hand that failed to save Manuel Neuer.

However, all the power that Dortmund had above, did not exist behind, where Mats Hummels not for many trots. Especially when speeding up explosive players. And, if you also did not have the day, the cocktail was explosive.

The dangerous mix gave a chance to Lewandowski that the Pole, as almost always, did not waste. Hummels wanted to make a long pass that bounced off the back of Müller. The Bayern forward won him the position in speed and Lewandowski, who accompanied the play at all times, picked up the ball to beat in a heads-up against Kobel.

Lewandowski scores from the penalty spot


His goal number 26 of the course spurred Bayern, which within the madness of the duel, back and forth, had a little more control than its rival. And, in the middle of that give and take, Eat He appeared on several occasions until hitting the edge of the break. He was able to make the 1-2 after another error of Hummels what saved Kobel, but he was right in the 44th minute thanks to a poor clearance by Raphael guerreiro inside the area that he did not miss with a right hand that bounced off Marco Reus.

The so-called psychological goal did not affect Dortmund, which was released in the second half. Haaland, who in the initial act signed one of his rides that did not end in a goal by centimeters, he did not miss his second chance. Another mistake, this time from Dayot Upamecano, who like a youngster controlled the ball with his chest, led to the Norwegian’s goal. Haaland He did not waste the gift and with an exquisite thread he raised the tables to the scoreboard.

Haaland not only tied the clash. Tied with Lewandowski in his particular duel that he would later lose. And, after his goal, the game lost pace. The interruptions, forced by a tremendous blow to the head of Brandt and for the injury of Lucas Hernandez, slowed down the momentum of Dortmund.

And, in the end, the bad afternoon of Hummels finished decanting the shock. Again, he made another mistake. This time, it was seen by the VAR, who warned the referee to whistle a very clear hand inside the area. Lewandowski he did not fail from eleven meters and made it clear that he is still the teacher and Haaland a luxury student. And, incidentally, he reaffirmed Bayern in the lead, which takes four points from its maximum rival at the rate of the Moral Ballon d’Or.
