Bayern Munich Vs. Borussia Dortmund Live, 2011 Bundesliga: Both Teams Dangerous, Dortmund Come Close Via Free Kick

Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are looking dangerous going forward here, but so far the defences have held out reasonably well and no clear-cut chances have been created. We've had some impressive play, of course, but so far nothing that quite justifies the hype, which ESPN's announcer has gotten rather carried away with, describing this match as 'the best defence vs. the best defence, the best goalscoring lineup vs. the best goal scoring... err'.

Rafinia has decided that the match needed a little bit more spice, as the Bayern midfielder decided to random lyfoul Robert Lewandowski 30 yards out, and that free kick became one from much closer range when Jerome Boateng's hand in the wall blocked the initial free kick. Mario Goetze's second effort was a cheeky effort to put the ball under the wall, but it took a slight deflection from a Bayern boot and went just outside Manuel Neuer's right-hand post and behind for a goal kick (for some reason). It's still 0-0 at the Allianz. but this match will almost certain not be scoreless by the time it finishes.
