If this is the Klassiker goal that ends the Bundesliga season’s title discussion, it’s a worthy one.
Joshua Kimmich spun an exceptional chip past Borussia Dortmund keeper Roman Burki to give the table leaders a 1-0 lead at the Westfalenstadion on Tuesday.
Bayern will hold a 7-point lead on the field with a win in Dortmund.
Maybe it was the difference in quality of each side’s first two post-coronavirus pause opponents, but Dortmund was better out of the gate.
Bayern got its opener from perhaps the most overlooked mega talent in the world; Kimmich spun a high chip off a Coman lay-off, and Burki could only slap it into the goal.
It’s the 25-year-old’s fifth goal to go with nine assists in all competitions this season. Few have been bigger.
