"The whole world of football," Norbert Dickel said before the kick-off, look at this stadium. That seemed a bit exaggerated by the Dortmund announcer, in Buenos Aires this weekend was finally Superclásico on the program, and also a little closer, in Cologne, one could not be sure whether on a pre-carnival day with eight goals of Effzeh still capacity for the football of the others remained. But, sure: Such a tingling expectation was long no longer over the German classic between the Dortmund Borussia and Bayern, but also the Bundesliga as a whole.

And whoever experienced it on Saturday evening, up close in the stadium or, wherever, on the television screens, would have been unbridled under the spell of this fast-paced, dramatic, almost intoxicating spectacle. In which it would have been risky not even to look for a few seconds – because just could always happen anywhere and anything.

As in the 26th minute, when Robert Lewandowski brought Bayern into the lead. Or in the dramaturgically dense minutes after the break, as only Marco Reus with a penalty for Borussia compensated (49.) before Lewandowski, just three minutes later, started the second stroke of the day (52.). And even after that, when BVB did not use nearly 100% chances, they struck twice, first by Reus (67 '), then by Paco Alcacer (73').

So that the table after this 3: 2 victory actually identified the Borussia seven points ahead of Bayern, who had fought hard in Dortmund, but in the end two or three times no longer with the hell's tempo of BVB mitkamen and so in the League hung down for now.
