Tactical Analysis | Bayern Munich 2-1 Borussia Dortmund: Effective pressing but not sustainable

“Though the two sides have had completely contrasting seasons so far, one is arguably the best passing team in Europe, while the other still remains a benchmark for those looking to employ a pressing system. And when it comes to the Klassiker, both these sides are often more well matched than points, form and the table suggests. This one at the Allianz Arena, was no different. The game was another reminder as to why the German domestic set-up remains arguably at the top in all aspects; the football on show was breath-taking, and the stands packed with clubs putting supporters first with staggeringly low ticket prices as displayed by www.1st4footballtickets.com, compared to some of Europe’s other leagues.” Outside of the Boot

Bayern Bares Its Fangs, on the Field and Off
“In a game fit to show to the world, Bayern Munich came from a goal down to roll over Borussia Dortmund, 2-1, on Saturday. This was Germany’s Der Klassiker being broadcast to 208 of FIFA’s 209 nations one week after Real Madrid and Barcelona had engaged a similar audience. The one country not tuned in? North Korea. A pity, because Koreans on both sides of their divide follow every nuance of the sport. It would not be lost on them that while the combined powers of Bayern and Borussia brought home the World Cup this year, there is intense rivalry and an internecine bitterness at the core of these annual encounters between Munich and the Ruhr.” NY Times
