Robert Lewandowski: Banned for three matches

Lewandowski had put his side ahead after quarter of an hour but things quickly turned sour for Dortmund as they conceded two quick goals before the Poland striker was sent off in the 31st minute of the match for a crude challenge on Per Ciljan Skjelbred.

Following the defeat, Dortmund have all but surrendered the title as they fell 15 points behind Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski has 24 hours to appeal against the verdict.
