Did 'Der Klassiker' Live Up To The Hype?

On the latest episode of the SL Podcast's The Bundesliga Connection, DW Sports correspondent and German football expert Kres Harrington breaks down the latest "Der Klassiker" and all the incidents that went along with it, including the post-match outburst from Jude Bellingham, saying that: "He's mature in his playing style, but he shouldn't have spoken out like that."

Lewandowski's penalty was enough to put the game to bed, but what about the title race? Find out by clicking on the podcast player below!

Following Bayern Munich's victory over fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, it is evident that the fixture lived up to the high standards the footballing world set.

Dortmund got the scoring underway early in the first half thanks to a Julian Brandt goal, with Robert Lewandowski equalising for Bayern soon after and before Kingsley Coman gave them the lead in the 44th minute.

Erling Haaland then continued to make history by scoring three minutes into the second half, meaning the Norwegian has now scored 56 goals in 53 Bundesliga appearances.

A late penalty by Bayern's Lewandowski gave the Bavarians a 3-2 lead, which was enough to claim all three points.

The Bavarians' victory means that they have increased their lead at the top of the table to four points, but this doesn't mean that the title race is over, according to DW Sports correspondent Harrington.

After the game, Dortmund wonderkid Bellingham also spoke out against the match officials, claiming that a referee who has been known for fixing matches should not be involved in the biggest football match in Germany, but it was a statement Harrington felt should not have happened.
