Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich 2017 live stream

Despite capitalising on Bayern's slow start to the season, Dortmund have slipped up in recent weeks and have won just once in their last five games in all competitions.

"I also have to compliment our medical department".

Lewandowski is available after missing the 2-1 win over Celtic with Heynckes assuring fans the striker "has not sustained an injury, but an overburdening", while also saying that "Dortmund will be much more concentrated and attentive" this weekend. We have seen them play and will prepare according to our play, but it will be up to the players to show that on the field.

Lewandowski was deemed not to have got a touch to a cross from David Alaba - who was forced off with a hamstring injury in the second half - that ended up in the back of the net as the Bavarians put the result beyond doubt in the 67th minute. "Whether it's my goal or not, that does not matter".

Christian Pulisic was one of few bright points for Dortmund, the teenage forward playing a key role in Marc Bartra's consolation strike two minutes from time by keeping the ball alive in the corner. He is now the Bundesliga's top scorer.

The second goal credited to Lewandowski was his 11th in the league in as many games this season.

Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the top scorer last season in Germany just ahead of Lewandowski, has now failed to score in each of his last five games, although he still has 10 for the season.

Dortmund have managed only one victory in their last six games in all competitions and a 1-1 home draw in the Champions League against APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus on Wednesday underlined their current struggles.

Dortmund were more than happy to sit off their opponents in the opening 45 minutes and cede possession, which initially looked to work well enough as they were given the chance to counter-attack.

"We turned in an outstanding display against a very good team today, especially in the first half", Heynckes told the Bayern Munich website.

The visitors are without a whole host of first-team players with the latest absentee being Joshua Kimmich, who misses his first game this season due to an upset stomach.

"There are going to be tough times, and right now is a tough time - but I believe in our team and I think we can bounce right back".
