Dortmund lost to Bayern 5-0 on Saturday , giving up first place on the Bundesliga table. The Bayern goals were from Hummels, Lewy, Gnarbry and Martinez with Zagadou assisting the second goal.

The first half was one of the most embarrassing halves in Borussia Dortmund history. After absorbing Bayern pressure for the first five minutes, BVB took their lone good try of the half. On a break JBL got the ball to Reus who served the ball on a platter to Dahoud, Mo then proceed to blow the chance. After that it seemed out game plan may work. Wait for breaks and catch Bayern off guard. Well it didn’t quite go that way. First Hummels scored. Then a few mins later Zagadou passed the ball to Lewy and Lewy scored. Being 2-1 down Dortmund lost all fight. set piece after set piece Bayern kept pressure on. Only Burki was keeping us in the game. Then after the 40th minute Munich put the nail in coffin with 2 quick goals from Martinez and Gnarbry.

The second half was mostly just a game of keep away. Bayern took their time and made a few more chances as well. The players got chippy with each other after the 65 minute mark and some hard fouls were the only things of interest(aside from the 5th goal) for the remaining 25 mins of the game.

Overall this was one of the most embarrassing game Dortmund have ever played. Its been a problem all year that once things go wrong the players give up. This time it was against our rivals for the league in a battle for top of the table. Favre should never have started Mo and Zagadou in a game like this. Weigl should be a defender over Zagadou at this point. Reus and Burki were the only BVB players who looked up to the task. Dortmund are now behind 1 on the Bundesliga table.
