This victory allowed Bundesliga champions Bayern to take a four-point lead at the top of the German standings, in a match that saw many incidents.
Dortmund were denied a credible penalty appeal, while Mats Hummels were penalized for a tough handball that saw Robert Lewandowski score the winner on the spot.

Speaking after the match, Bellingham said the following according to a video posted by Viaplay.
“It wasn’t a penalty, [Mats Hummels] was not looking at the ball, he is fighting to get it. It hits him, ”Bellingham said. “You can watch a lot of decisions in the game; you give a referee who rigged a game before Germany’s biggest game, what are you waiting for?
Zwayer was banned from football for six months for allegedly accepting a bribe in 2005 – confirmation of the ban did not come until a few years later, according to The Independent. A German FA investigation saw Zwayer punished along with several other officials.
He has since established himself as one of Germany’s top referees and is one of four to achieve UEFA elite status.
In a now deleted tweet, Dortmund striker Erling Haaland quoted the announcement of Zwayer’s appointment on Twitter with a thumbs-down emoji.
“I think it was a scandal as far as the referee is concerned,” Haaland said after the game.
“Clear punishment [on Reus in the first half]. I asked [the referee], ‘Why didn’t you just go and watch?’ – he said, ‘you don’t have to’, like an arrogant… No, I have to calm down a bit now.
“He was arrogant and I won’t say more. “
