Can Dortmund at least postpone FC Bayern’s 10th championship in a row on Saturday? If the Munich team leave the field as winners at around 8.15 p.m., they will have the bowl back for sure. Bayern versus Dortmund. It is also the last duel between Robert Lewandowski (33) and Erling Haaland (21)!
Dortmund’s Norwegian Haaland is almost certainly gone in the summer, and Lewandowski’s wind is also blowing in the direction of farewell – to Barcelona.
BILD expert Marcel Reif (72) on a Lewandowski departure: “According to everything that can be heard from the outside, the people of Munich have to deal with the thought: What if? It’s entirely possible. The Bavarians may have set their limit and they don’t want to cross it. That Lewandowski is leaving, the world footballer. And that Haaland is going in Dortmund. That’s where the world ends. For now….”
The last duel. What do the facts say?
► Lewandowski scored 23 times in 23 games against BVB!
► In his seven Bayern home games against Dortmund, he always scored 15 times in total! At least twice in the last 6 home games!
► Haaland also scored five goals in six games against Bayern – but always lost!
► However: His league rate is better than Lewandowski’s: He scores every 87 minutes, the Bayern striker every 99 minutes.
Who will wear the number 9 in Bayern and Dortmund in the future?
A Lewandowski successor is not yet in sight, there are rumors about Leverkusen’s Schick and Stuttgart’s Kalajdzic.
Reif has another hot tip: “The Uruguayan Darwin Nunez. Everyone talks about him.”
With Erling Haaland (contract until 2024), everything speaks for a move to Manchester City. As a replacement, BVB has agreed with national player Adeyemi and two young strikers on the list: Hugo Ekitike (19) from Stade Reims and Adam Hlozek (19) from Sparta Prague.
