Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick thinks that Erling Haaland is a big talent, and Robert Lewandowski has shown world-class in recent years.
‘We do not need to watch Haaland’

The match between Dortmund and Bayern took place at 23:30 on 26/5 (Hanoi time). After 27 rounds, Bayern is leading the Bundesliga rankings with 61 points, 4 points ahead of Dortmund.
