Bayern Munich were on some kind of rampage as they beat archrival Borussia Dortmund 6-0. They were 5-0 up in the first-half itself. It was a humiliating evening for Borussia Dortmund on the occasion of 112th Der Klassiker as their former man Robert Lewandowski grabs a hat-trick in opponent color.
Robert Lewandowski grabbed hat-trick against his former side
Robert Lewandowski was joined by James Rodriguez, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery on the scoresheet in Dortmund’s 6-0 hammering. Lewandowski opened the scoring in the 5th minute before Rodriguez and Muller find themselves on the scoresheet in 14th and 23rd minute respectively.
I genuinely hope that this performance is a wake-up call for the management and players of Borussia Dortmund. This is not the style of football that Borussia Dortmund should be producing. #fcbbvb #bvb

Dortmund could have bounced back in the game if they could have limited their humiliation to 3-0 down at the half-time, but they let go two more goals in last two minutes of first-half. Lewandowski grabbed his second of the night in the 44th minute before Ribery made it 5-0 in first-half added time.

It wasn’t Der Klassiker fans wants to see. Dortmund has really disappointed in recent years and it seems RB Leipzig is certainly going to replace them as Bundesliga second best team. Leipzig defeated the same Bayern team 2-1 before the international break. And here is Dortmund who were humiliated 5-0 in the first-half itself.
The sole fight from Dortmund came in Mario Gotze’s strike hit the post. Lewandowski grabbed his hat-trick later to complete 6-0 rampage. It was a good rehearsal for the Bavarians before they travel to Sevilla for their Champions League quarterfinals tie in the first-leg game.
If Schalke wouldn’t have registered 2-0 win over Freiburg, Bayern would have celebrated their sixth successive Bundesliga title in front of their arch rival. Dortmund must thank Schalke as they save them from more humiliation as they extend Bayern’s 28th Bundesliga title celebration to next week. Otherwise, Bayern wouldn’t have got a better atmosphere to celebrate the title.
