Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Bayern return to Bundesliga action next week on the road to Werder Bremen. Dortmund have to pick themselves up as they face Sevilla in the Champions League in the second leg of their round-of-16 clash on Tuesday.
Bayern Munich produce an outstanding comeback to defeat Borussia Dortmund 4-2 in their Bundesliga match at Allianz Arena. Erling Haaland put the visitors into an early 2-0 lead, scoring a brace inside nine minutes. However, Robert Lewandowski cancelled out the Norwegian's goals with a close-range effort and a strike from the penalty spot before half-time. The hosts had to wait to take the lead until the 87th minute when Leon Goretzka found the bottom-left corner with a precise strike. Lewandowski haunted his former club once more with a clinical shot to notch his hat-trick and secure the three points.

44' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!! LEWANDOWSKI LEVELS FROM THE SPOT!!! 2-2!!!!!! Bayern are level as the Pole converts from 12 yards. He takes a stutter-step run-up and fools Hitz before rolling his strike into the bottom-left corner. Game on.
42' PENALTY TO BAYERN! Dahoud brings down Coman with an outstretched boot. The referee does not give the penalty on the field, but he is instructed to look at the screen at the side of the pitch. It's clear that the contact was inside the box and the official overturns his decision.

R. Lewandowski
26' GOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! LEWANDOWSKI GETS BAYERN BACK INTO THE GAME!!!! 2-1!! The Pole slots home from close range from Sane's cutback. Sane collects on the right flank and beats the challenge of Schulz. He fires a low ball across the face of goal that Lewandowski slots into the net. All too easy for the home side. 
25' Dahoud opens up the Bayern defence with an incisive pass for Meunier. The Belgian looks for Haaland unmarked in the middle, but he underhits his cross and allows Alaba to make the interception. Meunier should have gone for goal there.
24' Reus tries to release Haaland on the break, but on this occasion the Norwegian runs into a wall of red shirts on the edge of the Bayern box.
22' Sane twists and turns down the right flank and sends a dangerous cross towards Coman. Meunier reads the danger in the Dortmund box to clear.

19' OVER! Sule angles a cross in from the right flank that Lewandowski meets with a firm header, but the Pole can only send his effort over the top.
17' OVER! Kimmich hangs a dangerous cross to the back post from the left flank. Sane runs into position to attack the delivery, only to head his effort over the bar from a difficult angle. The winger did well to make contact there.

13' Davies sends a dangerous cross in from the left flank that somehow evades everyone and travels through to the opposite wing. Zagadou missed his clearing header, while Sane was on his heels.
11' Bayern have developed a bad habit of going behind early in games. Once again the reigning Bundesliga champions need to dig themselves out of a hole.
T. Hazard
9' Hazard latches on to a fine pass from Schulz and he continues the move with a brilliant low cross for Haaland to convert.

1' We're underway at Allianz Arena.
Borussia Dortmund have lost their last four Bundesliga games against FC Bayern, something that has only ever previously happened to BVB from 1968 to 1970 (5 defeats in a row vs. FCB back then).
Dortmund are without both Jadon Sancho and Raphael Guerreiro for the contest. Both players sustained injuries in the DFB-Pokal win over Borussia Monchengladbach during the week. There are four changes in total for Dortmund as Meunier, Schulz and Zagadou come into the back four. Bellingham and Morey drop to the bench. Hazard gets the start in place of the injured Sancho.
Bayern have made two changes to their side that beat Koln last time out. Muller and Coman return to the line in place of Musiala and Choupo-Moting, who both drop to the bench this evening. Sule continues to operate at right-back for Flick's side.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND SUBS: Roman Burki, Mateu Morey, Youssoufa Moukoko, Julian Brandt, Reinier, Jude Bellingham, Lukasz Piszczek, Steffen Tigges, Felix Passlack.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND (4-2-3-1): Marwin Hitz; Thomas Meunier, Mats Hummels, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Nico Schulz; Emre Can, Thomas Delaney; Marco Reus, Mahoud Dahoud, Thorgan Hazard; Erling Haaland.
BAYERN SUBS: Serge Gnabry, Javi Martinez, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Bouna Sarr, Lucas Hernandez, Marc Roca, Tiago Dantas, Ron-Thorben Hoffmann, Jamal Musiala.
BAYERN (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Niklas Sule, Jerome Boateng, David Alaba, Alphonso Davies; Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich; Leroy Sane, Thomas Muller, Kingsley Coman; Robert Lewandowski.
Dortmund enter the contest in good form, having reeled off four wins on the bounce in all competitions. Die Schwarzgelben need a win to get back into contention for a top-four finish, with the club currently sitting in sixth place and four points behind fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt. Edin Terzic's men are winless in their last four matches against Bayern, and will need a special effort tonight to win Der Klassiker on the road.
Bayern crushed Koln last time out by a 5-1 margin to get their charge for the title back on course. Hansi Flick's men had endured a difficult couple of games by their standards, drawing 3-3 against Arminia Bielefeld and losing 2-1 on the road to Eintracht Frankfurt. However, they begin the evening one point behind RB Leipzig at the top and will be looking to reclaim their spot on the Bundesliga summit.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Bundesliga clash between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund at Allianz Arena.
