Robert Lewandowski scored twice as Bayern Munich beat arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund 3-2 to win the Der Klassiker on Saturday.
In front of a restricted crowd of just 15,000, Julian Brandt gave Dortmund a fifth-minute lead but Thomas Müller chased down a poor touch from Hummels and then held off his former teammate to set up Lewandowski, who equalized with a tidy finish inside the near post in the ninth.
Kingsley Coman scored a minute before the break with a deflected shot after Raphaël Guerreiro’s attempted clearance was inadvertently blocked by Hummels. Erling Haaland equalized after the break with a curled shot in off the far post with Lewandowski coming with the winner from the penalty spot late on after a long VAR review.
