IFFHS STATISTICS AND NEWS OF THE WEEK 22
A masterpiece from Joshua Kimmich (the goal against Dortmund - picture), a masterclass from FC Bayern München !
They showed an inexperienced Borussia Dortmund how you win a title showdown, and how you win a title. That might well be the greatest consequence from this 1-0 Bayern win, as they go seven points clear, with just six points left. The Bundesliga title race might have ended as quickly as it restarted, and had started to capture international attention. It was the first great match after the coronavirus, with an audience of more than a billion TV viewers !! Bayern keep on winning, and now look set for that eighth title in a row. While that result may not be great for German football, the game itself was a great example of the excellence that can still be evident so soon after such a long break. It was masterclass !
