Kroos Has Grown Up:  What We Learned from Bayern's 1-1 Draw with Dortmund

Saturday's match between Bayern Munich and Dortmund was hyped to be the biggest game of the weekend in Europe and the most important fixture of Bundesliga season thus far. And while neither side looked their sharpest, especially in the first half, the clubs played passionate football for 90 minutes, resulting in a 1-1 draw.

The first half was rather cagey, with the most noteworthy event being a nasty knee injury to Holger Badstuber, who is expected to see an early end to his season. Play opened more after the break, and Toni Kroos and Mario Goetze traded goals before full time.

In the end, Bayern had to accept that several more months will pass before they can end their winless streak against BVB, while Dortmund essentially lost any hope of winning a third consecutive Bundesliga title.

There are many talking points to take from Saturday's match. Read on for a full analysis of the key points following the draw.
