Robert Lewandowski cups ear to Dortmund’s ‘Yellow Wall’ as Bayern Munich striker trolls former club after win – The Sun

ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI cupped his ear to Borussia Dortmund's non-existent Yellow Wall after dealing a hammer blow to his old side's title chances.

Bayern Munich's 1-0 win at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday effectively ended the race to the Bundesliga crown.

However it was just the second time that Lewandowski has failed to score in a game since the turn of the year, having notched 11 times in 2020.

And the striker was slated by his former supporters for taking a tumble in the box after Manuel Akanji's shoulder barge was deemed legal by the referee.

None of the mattered for the 31-year-old though as Bayern moved seven points clear of Dortmund with six games left to play.

Should Munich to see out their comfortable lead, it will be Lewandowski's eighth league title and sixth in Bavaria having signed from their rivals on a free transfer in 2014.

In four years at Signal Iduna Park, he claimed the German crown twice in their heyday under Jurgen Klopp.

And fans noticed Lewandowski's enthusiastic celebration at full-time of Tuesday's game.

One Twitter user asked: "Did Lewandowski cup his ear to the Yellow Wall?"

Another joked: "Lewandowski being an absolute s*** house at full time."
