FC Bayern probably lost their last chance at the championship with a painful Clásico defeat. The day after Xabi Alonso committed to another year at leaders Bayer Leverkusen, the Munich team had to let his team pull away to 13 points by losing 0-2 (0-1) against Borussia Dortmund. With seven games still to play, the trophy can only theoretically be won for FC Bayern, for whom Harry Kane didn’t deliver despite great opportunities on Saturday.

Karim Adeyemi (10th minute) and Julian Ryerson (83rd) made the guests celebrate their first away win in the Bundesliga in Munich in a decade. Important points in the fight for participation in the Champions League also meant a liberation for coach Edin Terzic. This was particularly thanks to the outstanding classic record holder Mats Hummels.

Without the injured captain Manuel Neuer, the Munich team had to deal with another title setback at the start of groundbreaking weeks with the premier class quarter-final against Arsenal FC. BVB can look forward to the premier class competition Atlético Madrid with further self-confidence after their fifth competitive win in a row. A reunion on June 1st at the final in London is possible.

As soon as he arrived at the stadium, Thomas Tuchel had to digest “a little dampener in his mood” due to Leverkusen’s turnaround in the 2-1 win against Hoffenheim on his one-year anniversary as Bayern coach. The big one followed a little later in front of 75,000 spectators on the pitch: after captain’s representative Thomas Müller lost the ball, Borussia quickly switched gears. Julian Brandt’s deliberate pass gave Adeyemi a surprising lead. New representative Sven Ulreich got a shot, but he couldn’t prevent the goal.

On Leverkusen’s celebration weekend, when the Werkself turned around a 0-1 deficit with two late goals the day after Alonso’s yes, Bayern lacked the final luck at the front. In contrast to the relegation candidates Mainz (8:1) and Darmstadt (5:2), Harry Kane, who had become fit after ankle problems, missed a mega chance with his head, which he usually always takes (23rd). BVB defense chief Hummels spectacularly cleared Eric Dier’s header from close range in the air with a kung-fu jump (35′).

Shortly after the break, Bayern were able to thank Ulreich for brilliantly thwarting a top chance from Felix Nmecha (53′) and also being there to beat Hummels (58′). The Munich team only got up to speed late against cleverly defending Dortmund. During the attacks, Jamal Musiala and his colleagues, who were repeatedly disturbed, often acted too complicatedly. There was also a lack of speed and precision.

In his 50th game as Bayern coach, Tuchel changed his entire offensive line after an hour, with the exception of Kane. This brought a lot of momentum to the offensive, especially thanks to the returnee Kingsley Coman. But Kane still lacked efficiency, as with his header (67th). Kobel representative Alexander Meyer made a brilliant save against Coman (75′). Ryerson increased Munich’s constant pressure in the final phase. The bitter punchline for Kane: His supposed goal to make it 1-2 didn’t count because it was offside.

The top Bundesliga game took place under increased police presence after a suspected threat was reported. According to its own information, the Federal Ministry of the Interior had no concrete indications of a threat situation.
