So, was this it? Was Robert Lewandowski’s 77th-minute game-winner the Bundesliga decider?

It sure looks as if the Polish international’s goal Wednesday will put Borussia Dortmund over the top for good in the German league chase. Lewandowski redirected a shot following a corner kick, leaving his side six points clear of Bayern Munich with just four games remaining.

“Dortmund are 99 per cent certain to be champions,” Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.

Here’s the goal:

Of course, it could have been a lot closer. Arjen Robben, Bayern’s talented Dutch winger, could have changed fortunes but for his highly imperfect penalty kick late today. Robben shot too far inside, more than 80,000 crazed supporters inside the Signal Iduna Park (that is one amazing place) nearly came apart in joy and, well …

Bayern is a team of more famous, more impressive names – Robben, Franck Ribery, Thomas Muller, Philipp Lahm, Mario Gomez and fantastic goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to name just the super biggies. So what Dortmund is doing, about to defend its 2010-11 title, is special stuff.

(By the way, that Dortmund defender in the following clip, getting all up in Robben’s Dutch grill, is Neven Subotic, the would-be U.S. international who chose to represent Serbia instead.)
