Bayern Munich faced a setback with a 3-1 defeat against Stuttgart in their latest Bundesliga match. Additionally, Raphaël Guerreiro sustained an injury early in the game, casting doubt on his availability for the crucial Champions League semifinal second leg against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team showcased their strength with a convincing 5-1 victory over Augsburg. Marco Reus, a seasoned player for Dortmund, contributed a goal and an assist in his first appearance since confirming his departure from the club after 12 years.

Ahead of their upcoming semifinal clash against Paris Saint-Germain, Dortmund’s coach Edin Terzić made significant changes to the lineup, with only goalkeeper Gregor Kobel retaining his spot from the previous match.

Similarly, Bayern’s coach Thomas Tuchel made several alterations to the starting lineup from their last game against Madrid, hoping to optimize their performance. However, their plans were disrupted early on when Guerreiro sustained an injury and had to be substituted in the 17th minute.

Stuttgart defender Leonidas Stergiou scored first in the 29th minute, assisted by Deniz Undav. It marked the 22-year-old Swiss defender’s debut Bundesliga goal.

Harry Kane leveled the score with a penalty in the 37th minute, although TV replays suggested minimal contact between Waldemar Anton and Serge Gnabry, who fell to the ground holding his face.

Nonetheless, Kane maintained his composure, registering his 44th goal in 44 games for Bayern this season. Jeong Woo-yeong extended Stuttgart’s lead in the 83rd minute, with an assist from substitute Silas Katompa Mvumpa. Silas then secured the victory with a goal in stoppage time.

With two games left, Stuttgart closed the gap on second-place Bayern to two points. Both teams had already secured qualification for the Champions League.
