(Borussia Dortmund-Bayern Munich 2-3) A new superscoring was not enough for Erling Braut Haaland. Bayern Munich wins «The Classic»
The Norwegian stormed through the Bayern defense on an excellent through ball from Raphael Guerreiro six minutes before the end. He put the ball under perhaps the world’s best goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer. An absolutely brilliant achievement.
– It was a good goal, he says to Viasat.
But Haaland’s sixth goal in the last five games was not enough. The guests from Munich took with them three points south in Germany while a clearly disappointed Haaland shook his head when he left the field after the drama.
– It’s close. It’s weird. Now I have played against them three times without winning. It is lead heavy, says Haaland who thinks he used too many touches on several of the chances he had.
– It irritates me, he says and clearly takes some of the blame for the defeat after his scoring number 19 in the Bundesliga.
Thus, the parent club Bryne’s promotion to the Obos league was today’s consolation for the 20-year-old. With 3-0 over Sotra, the promotion was secured from the PostNord league, division 2 – but coach Jan Halvor Halvorsen’s men crushed the away team 3-0.
– It is true that Bryne is back in Norwegian top football and will hopefully stay there for many years, father Alfie Haaland told Viasat from Germany before the match starts at Signal Iduna Park.
There, Haaland junior experienced the third loss in three possible against the Champions League winner. Haaland won most of the race and head duels with Bayern’s veteran stopper Jérôme Boateng, but this was the night when the finishes did not set Dortmund’s goal machine perfectly for a long time.
It took time before the goals came before the break. Robert Lewandowski’s cash shot in goal after 25 minutes was canceled out by VAR for a fine offside on one knee.
Then Joshua Kimmich disappeared from the match. The match winner from the supercup final earlier this autumn also received a yellow card after a failed tackle attempt on Erling Braut Haaland.
The Norwegian came to some small opportunities from an angle. However, Rapahel Guerreiro did not manage to connect with it, as his team mates had hoped, and the ball went out. The Dortmund captain knocked the ball into the net behind Manuel Neuer.
