In German football, it doesn’t get any bigger than Borussia Dortmund versus Bayern Munich.

This week saw the latest instalment and it was Dortmund that garnered the three points in a tight 1-0 win. It certainly wasn’t the goal rush many had expected, but rather a war of attrition between the two sides.

In front of a rapturous crowd at the Signal Iduna Park, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang prodded home a first-half winner. It was the Gabonese striker’s 14th goal of the season and arguably his most important.

Agonisingly too, the assist came from Mario Gotze who completed his return to Dortmund this summer after a mixed three seasons in Bavaria. As for Mats Hummels, the German defender was left with egg on his face with his first game at the Signal Iduna Park in Munich colours ending in defeat.

Nevertheless, neither side have reached the summit of the Bundesliga after the clash. Thomas Tuchel’s team rose to third and Carlo Ancelotti’s side maintained second place, but Leipzig continued to sit pretty in first.

If anything, the result was exactly what the table toppers wanted.

Incredible skill

However, it wasn’t an entirely disastrous evening for the champions.

Aside from three dropped points and some rather sheepish returns, Munich attracted positive attention via Joshua Kimmich. The German may have been on the losing side, but he still had time to put on a show.

Despite being pinned in the corner by Adrian Ramos and Gotze, Kimmich evaded both players with an outrageous flash of footwork. This was despite the fact, at the start of the move, he was on all fours.

The brilliant piece of skill can be seen below:

So while it’s certainly great to see the latest snippet of talent from Kimmich, it came in vein for Munich.

A midfield dripping with skill or not, the German champions face a difficult road to retaining their title this season. It appears that both Dortmund and Leipzig are going all out to end four years of seemingly impregnable Bavarian dominance.
