Bundesliga goes to the final day as Bayern slump in the final lap
German Bundesliga title race took another twist as leaders Bayern Munich missed the chance to win a seventh consecutive title with a game to go when they were held to a goalless draw at RB Leipzig.
Leon Goretzka scored a goal but it was ruled out by VAR to deny Bavarians victory. Former Arsenal man Sergie Gnabry missed the best chance for the holders in an entertaining first half at Red Bull Arena.
Goretzka then volleyed Ibrahima Konate’s poor clearance past the Hungarian seven minutes into the second half, but the goal was disallowed by VAR for an offside against Robert Lewandowski.
Meanwhile second placed Borussia Dortmund, who had earlier almost given up in the race, beat Fortuna Dusseldorf 3-2 to revive their title hopes.
Chelsea-bound Christian Pulisic put the hosts in front after 41 minutes before Dusseldorf responded in the opening stages of the second half through Olivier Fink.
Thomas Delaney put the homeside back in front again on 53 minutes before Mario Gotze grabbing the winner in added time and Dawid Kownacki founding the consolation seconds later.
Adam Bodzek was given a straight red after 82 minutes following an ill-timed challenge across the middle of the park.
The result puts Niko Kovac’s Bayern just two points clear of Dortmund going to the summit day. A victory against Werder Bremen will wrap up a seventh successive title for the five time European champions.
