Robert Lewandowski magic pushes Bayern Munich, Erling Haaland wins Borussia Dortmund a point

It was largely business as usual in the Bundesliga in mid March. Wolfsburg and Frankfurt keep pushing for a Champions League spot, something Borussia Dortmund increasingly look like missing out on.

Did Bayern Munich win this weekend?

They did, and how. Despite Alphonso Davies being sent off after just 12 minutes, Bayern Munich were 4-0 up at halftime. A hat trick from Robert Lewandowski moves the 32-year-old closer to breaking Gerd Müller’s single-season goal record.

Stuttgart suffered a defeat and the loss of Silas Wamangituka, who tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and is out for the rest of the season.

Did Borussia Dortmund win this weekend?

No. Erling Haaland scored after three minutes and in the final minute but those goals only helped Dortmund earn a point in Cologne. It was yet another performance of fits and starts for Edin Terzic’s side, who were dangerously close to losing.

Were there any surprises in the Bundesliga this weekend?

Hertha Berlin blowing Leverkusen out of the water at home was probably the surprise of the weekend, and one that likely spells the end of Peter Bosz’s time in charge at Leverkusen.

Champions League quarterfinalists Dortmund not winning in Cologne was also a surprise, especially as Edin Terzic’s side nearly lost.

What was the game of the weekend in the Bundesliga?

It was raining goals in Frankfurt on Saturday, with six scored in the first half, four by the hosts and two from Union Berlin. Andre Silva and Filip Kostic once again impressed.
