A lone gone from Bayern Munich was enough to secure all three points against Borussia Dortmund as the Bundesliga champions took a big step to retain the title.
Bayern took a big step closer to retaining the Bundesliga title for a record eight straight championship title after defeating second-placed Borrusia Dortmund 1-0 at an empty 80,000 capacity Signal Iduna Park stadium
Both sides created chances but lacked finishing. The two teams saw a goal-line clearance in the first half, a Thorgan Hazard disallowed goal.
Just before the end of the first half, Bayern defender Joshua Kimmich scored to give Hansi Flick’s side a one-nill lead.
Kimmich scored a wonderful goal, he spotted Dortmund’s keeper Burki off his line and chipped the ball from 20 yards out into the left-top corner of the home team net.
BVB felt had done by in the early part of the second half after Dahoud, Hazard, and Haaland couldn’t convert their chances.
The introduction of Jadon Sancho and Reyna gave Dortmund more sting upfront, but it was not enough to break Die Roten’s resolute defence.

Lewandowski nearly increased the visitors tally late on, but Matt Hummel was in time to deflect the ball and off against the post.
This win means the Bavarians are now seven points above BVB with six matches left to conclude the 2019/20 campaign season.
Bavarians will need just four wins in their remaining six matches to be crowned champions for their eighth successive title in as many years as possible.
