Bayern Munich took a huge step towards an eighth straight Bundesliga title on Tuesday with a 1-0 win at Borussia Dortmund to leave them seven points clear at the top with just six games left.
A brutally important goal by Joshua Kimmich gave Bayern Munich the needed win. The goal came just before half-time.
Bayern won 4-0 when the teams met in Munich in November and they kept up their excellent recent record against second-placed Dortmund.
Dortmund’s star teenage striker, Erling Braut Haaland, who had scored ten goals in this season’s league campaign, failed to make an impact against Bayern’s watertight defense before going off injured in the second half.
