Bayern beaten at home

Monday, April 14, 2014

BERLIN - German champions Bayern Munich suffered their second successive league defeat as they were thrashed 3-0 at home by Borussia Dortmund at the Allianz Arena yesterday.

Goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marco Reus and Jonas Hofmann condemned ten-man Bayern to their first Bundesliga loss in Munich since October 2012.

The reigning European champions have failed to win any of the three league matches they have played since wrapping up the German title.

The win means second-placed Dortmund move three points clear of rivals Schalke 04, who are third, boosting their chances of returning to the Champions League next season.

Both sides have German Cup semi-finals to look forward to in midweek but Bayern coach Pep Guardiola and his Dortmund counterpart Juergen Klopp named strong line-ups.

The visitors, however, left star striker Robert Lewandowski on the bench. The Polish international, who is set to join Bayern next season, was replaced by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Earlier VfL Wolfsburg continued their push for a place in next season's Champions League, moving to fourth place after a thumping 4-1 win over Nuremburg.

Wolfsburg leapfrogged Leverkusen, who play on Sunday, and Borussia Moenchengladbach.
