Bayern Munich 4:0 Borussia Dortmund Player Ratings | BVB crushed in Der Klassiker, Jadon Sancho poor

Bayern’s first game after the departure of Niko Kovac saw the Bavarian giants outclass rivals Borussia Dortmund. It was a rare Der Klassiker where neither of the teams were top of the table, and Bayern ran out deserved winners thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s brace. The Polish striker has now scored on each of the Bundesliga’s opening 11 game weeks- a new record.

Dortmund’s first shot on target only came in the middle of the second half, and they could have no complaints about the result.

The player ratings from German newspaper Bild tell the story- Axel Witsel the only BVB player to emerge with a level of credit, but every Bayern player on the park was better than him. Sancho, Akanji and Hakimi the worst of the lot according to these Bild ratings. Caretaker Bayern manager Flick (1) comprehensively outplayed his opposite number, with Lucien Favre getting a 5.

Player Ratings Bayern-Belgrade 3:0 | FCB open campaign with victory over Crvena Zvezda

Bayern put their 1:1 draw over the weekend against Leipzig behind them as they began their UCL campaign with a 3:0 win over Belgrade. With the other group game between Tottenham and Olympiacos ending in a 2:2 draw, Bayern are currently top of their group.

The Red Star Belgrade side that played this evening had some familiar names in their starting lineup- Marko Marin (their skipper), Jose Canas (ex Swansea), Rajiv van La Parra (ex Huddersfield, Brighton and Wolves).

Here are the player ratings from Bild- a good day at the office for Bayern’s midfielders and forwards.

Bayern’s goals in the game came through Coman, Lewandowski and Muller, the last of whom also became the club’s most capped UCL forward.

Bundesliga Team of the Week- Round 4 (2019/20 season)

Here is the Bundesliga Team of the Week for MD4 of the 2019/20 season. Leipzig stayed top of the table as they held Bayern Munich to a 1:1 draw, as a result of which the Bavarian giants slipped from 2nd to 4th. There is no Bayern player in either Sportschau’s Team of the Week or Kicker’s TOTW.

Elsewhere, Dortmund’s 4:0 win over Leverkusen saw them take Bayern’s spot in the table. Paderborn slipped into the drop zone as they were beaten 5:1 at home by Schalke.

All 9 games over the weekend produced goals. There were two red cards and both came in the same game- Union Berlin vs Werder Bremen, with Neven Subotic and Nuri Sahin getting sent off towards the end of that fixture.
