After defeating Augsburg with 10 men to take the top spot in the table, Borussia Dortmund is just one victory away from winning the Bundesliga. With a win, they go two points ahead of Bayern Munich, who on Saturday fell to RB Leipzig 3-1. Before Sebastian Haller scored in the 58th minute with a low effort, Felix Uduokhai was dismissed in the first half for a foul on Donyell Malen.
Following that, Haller scored from close range, and Julian Brandt added a late third. If Dortmund wins, they will have a good chance of winning the Bundesliga for the first time since 2011–12 and preventing Bayern Munich from claiming their 11th straight championship.
On the final day of the campaign, next Saturday, Thomas Tuchel leads his Bayern team to Koln, but Dortmund is aware that a victory against Mainz at home at the same time will win the championship. When Bayern was second in the standings in March, Julian Nagelsmann was fired. They quickly hired former Chelsea manager Tuchel in the hopes that he would win the league, but to keep the championship, they must now win and hope that Dortmund falters.
