Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich

BORUSSIA Dortmund stunned champion and arch-rival Bayern Munich 1-0 on Saturday in a bad-tempered "Der Klassiker" clash to leave RB Leipzig the shock Bundesliga leader.

Marcel Risse scored a stoppage-time victor as Cologne came from a goal down to beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1 and climb into fourth, ahead of Hertha Berlin, who dropped to fifth following a goalless draw at Augsburg. The Italian's preferred 4-3-3 formation has perhaps seen Bayern cede some of the control of games they often had under his Catalan predecessor, and they have kept just one clean sheet in their last nine games.

"We had problems early on, we were too open and did not defend well when they scored. It's great for the league [that Leipzig are now top of the league]".

Ousmane Dembele came in as a substitute and impressed the manager by scoring the fifth goal against Hamburger.

Ingolstadt marked Maik Walpurgis first match in charge with their first victory of the season, a 1-0 win at Darmstadt, thanks to a Moritz Hartmann goal. They haven't lost at home since league play started - though they did lose at home to Bayern in the German Supercup before the season - but they've also won just twice in their last five home games, and one of those wins was on penalties in the DFB-Pokal. Dortmund, however, heavily relies on their talisman Emerick Aubameyang to win matches.

Hummels, who played eight years in Dortmund before moving to Bayern this season, said visiting Dortmund is "the toughest away game in Europe, " but did not want to overrate the loss.

Franck Ribery had a goal ruled out for offside and Xabi Alonso struck the woodwork for Carlo Ancelotti's side, who nearly conceded a second when Aubameyang proved uncharacteristically profligate after finding himself one-on-one with Manuel Neuer. "We could have won today against a Dortmund side that wasn't very strong".

Bayern also has been hit by injuries and the poor form of forward Thomas Mueller, who still has to score in the league this season. "We would love to free ourselves of that [pressure], but it isn't possible."We need lots of bravery tomorrow - that will be the key to the game". It's important that we show our identity.

"I would not forbid Mats Hummels if I was the present coach, but would suggest that [takes place] after the game", he told Sky.
