Lewandowski did not shine anymore in the game against Augsburg, but then he used his excellent instincts and scored an honorary goal for the Bavarians. However, he did not succeed in this game in the home game against the team that is even lower in the table – with 17th Arminia. It is true that Bayern won, but the Pole’s participation in this victory was small. The rivals completely cut him off from the ball.
Haaland was injured on October 19, when BVB was defeated by Ajax 0-4 in the Champions League. The 21-year-old missed four league games but appeared on the pitch in the 73rd minute against the Wolves. Eight minutes later he set the score 3-1 for his team. For the delightful youngster it was the 50th goal in his 50th Bundesliga match.
Behind the backs of “Lewy” (14 goals) and Haaland (10) there are three authors of eight goals: Taiwo Awoniya from Union Berlin, Anthony Modeste from Cologne and Euro 2020 revelation, Patrik Schick from Bayer Leverkusen. Only the first of them improved his achievements in the last league match. Both the Nigerian and the Czech have their 13th round matches still ahead of them and may come closer to the top two.
Nevertheless, the only real rival to the Bayern sniper seems to be the Borussia striker. Their direct match, which will take place on December 4 in Dortmund, promises to be very interesting. It will not only be a fight for the title of the most dangerous attacker in the league, but also about which team will sit in the leader’s seat after the queue.
The second BVB is just a point behind its big rivals. Der Klassiker is scheduled for 18:30. Taking into account the current disposition of both teams, the home team seems to be the favorite for the first time in several years, which last defeated Die Roten in August 2019, and has since lost six consecutive games.
