It was as even of a match as you could’ve hoped for given what was at stake. Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 1-0. The Bundesliga title race is over. Bayern are now 7 clear of BVB.
BVB put up a fight. They actually out-possessed (51-49%) a Bayern squad that leads the entire world in total possession. BVB outshot Bayern 13/5 to 11/5. xG was even at .6 to .6.

There’s a reason why Bayern Munich are on their way to an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title though. They simply find ways to win these games.
Bayern Munich now -5000 to win title
The win locked FCB in as overwhelming favorites to capture the 2019-20 Bundesliga trophy. They’re now priced at -5000. BVB is +2000. RB Leipzig is +5000.
But this race is over. Bayern can now cruise to the title and be well rested if Champions League football does actually resume in August.
