Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Full Highlights, Result: Despite being on a winning streak, Borussia Dortmund’s form-train was stopped in its tracks by Bayern Munich as they won Der Klassiker 1-0 on Tuesday at the Signal Iduna Park.

Dortmund started well and dominated most of the half, but their momentum was shattered right at the break as Joshua Kimmich chipped over Roman Burki in the 43rd minute. Although Erling Haaland threatened with his shots and Jadon Sancho and Mario Gotze came on as subs, Dortmund couldn’t do much to put a dent on the well-drilled defending champions. Bayern now enjoy a seven-point lead at the top as they are on 64 points from 28 matches.

Looking back at the winning goal

FT: Dortmund 0-1 Bayern

As the final whistle blows, the empty stadium is filled with shouts and shrieks of ecstacy by Bayern players as the Bavarians take a lead of 7 points now. Dortmund's excellent form train has been brought to an end by a solitary Joshua Kimmich goal. 

23:49 (IST)26 May 2020
89' Bayern still at it

Bayern have hold on really well here, and even after showing astute defence performance, they are still creating chances. Goretzka found himself in a bit of space inside the box but his jump wasn't enough, and then Muller scuffs his shot at Burki.

23:41 (IST)26 May 2020
83' Off the post!

Lewandowski gets the ball after a brilliant lay-off by Muller but his left-footed shot from the outside of the box comes off the post. 

23:39 (IST)26 May 2020
80' Piszczek off, Gotze on

The Bundesliga winner is on. Mario Gotze who will leave the club at the end of the season is now on for Piszczek. Dortmund now shift to a four man defence with Hummels and Akanji as two centre-backs. Ten minutes to go...

23:36 (IST)26 May 2020
77' Dortmund inching closer

A golden opportunity goes begging for Dortmund after the home team carefully created a chance. Through the passing of Reyna, Sancho and Can... Haazard finds at the end of a low cross but he couldn't finish it. The linesman raises his flag anyways.

23:33 (IST)26 May 2020
Not the usual evening for Erling
23:32 (IST)26 May 2020
73' Coman off, Perisic on

Kingsley Coman is replaced by former Dortmund player Ivan Perisic. 

23:30 (IST)26 May 2020
71' Haaland off, Reyna on

Haaland is off as he is suffering from a bit of a niggle in his knee, and on comes 17-year-old Gio Reyna! 

23:27 (IST)26 May 2020
68' Tackles here, tackles there, tackles everywhere

The last ten minutes, the tempo of the game has slowed down a bit with a lot of tackles flying around from both sides of times. Both Muller and Dahoud have been booked, but so far Bayern are enjoying the advantage as Dortmund are lacking the intent now.

23:17 (IST)26 May 2020
58' Dortmund almost equalising

Sancho to Hakimi to Can, who finds Hazard down the left flank who then squares it to Haaland... and his on-target shot is blocked by Alaba. Quick passing play and one-touch football, classic Dortmund football! Almost.

23:13 (IST)26 May 2020
53' Goretzka almost...

Burki does really really well there to save Goretzka's low shot towards the bottom right corner, but the goalkeeper's strong right hand bails Dortmund out of the situation. The home team know quite well how hard it would be if they were to go two goals down. 

23:10 (IST)26 May 2020
Lukaku has an observation
23:08 (IST)26 May 2020
49' Neuer makes calm save

Right from the offing, Sancho and Can find themselves in the thick of things as they coordinate with the wingbacks which has often been the outlet for Dortmund. Dahoud finds himself in a bit of space in the middle and chooses to shoot... but Neuer grabs it well. 

23:04 (IST)26 May 2020
Second half begins

Bayern restart the proceedings, and Dortmund have made two changes here as Emre Can and Jadon Sancho are on. 

22:49 (IST)26 May 2020
HT: Dortmund 0-1 Bayern

Despite the fact that the encounter has so far seen just one goal, it has been thrilling. Shots, chances, half-chances, quick passing moves, aggressive tackles, and a delightful chipped goal right towards the end of the half by Joshua Kimmich. Dortmund dominated for the greater part of it, but they failed to capitalise on them. Will Favre bring on Sancho? 45 minutes more to go...

22:45 (IST)26 May 2020
43' KIMMMMMIIICHHHHHH!

WHAT A GOAL! BEAUTIFUL! Bayern were building on the pressure by passing in and around the box, and after a move between Muller, Coman and then Kimmich, the German midfielder chipped the Dortmund goalkeeper from 20 yards. It rose and rose and then with immense precision it dipped right at the last moment to defy Burki's fingertips. A vital lead before half-time.

22:42 (IST)26 May 2020
40' Goretzka's shot saved

Goretzka with a thunderbolt of a 25-yard volley but sadly it was right down the middle and straight into the hands of Burki. Hakimi receives a bellowing from teammates for his miskewed header that led to the chance. Bayern hoping to finish the half on a high.

22:40 (IST)26 May 2020
38' Brandt playing brilliantly

It's all Julian Brandt lately. He's the one organising the orchestra for Dortmund lately as the left wing turns into the creative channel for the home team. To Guerreiro, to Dahoud, to Delaney, to Hazard, he's linking with one and all.

22:32 (IST)26 May 2020
31' Dortmund amped up

Two back-to-back attacks from Dortmund! Haaland has an opportunity with his left foot and minutes later Hazard tries to find the striker with a low cross. From a resulting corner, Haaland again finds his head to the ball but it was completely non-threatening.
