As the season’s first Klassiker approached, both teams found themselves unusually outside the top two spots in the Bundesliga. Union Berlin and Freiburg held the top positions while Bayern, in third place, narrowly edged past BVB on goal difference.
The game seemed to be in Bayern’s control when Julian Nagelsmann’s side took a 2-0 lead in Dortmund, with long-range goals from Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sané. However, a dramatic turn of events unfolded, as substitute Anthony Modeste set up Youssoufa Moukoko, becoming the youngest-ever Klassiker goalscorer for the Black-and-Yellows. Kingsley Coman’s red card and Modeste’s last-second goal brought Dortmund a thrilling draw.

Thomas Müller added two more goals for Bayern, and Kingsley Coman scored the fourth. Dortmund managed to score two late consolations, but it was not enough to prevent a Bayern victory.
