The 2022-2023 German Bundesliga season was the fiercest in the league’s recent history, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund going head-to-head until the final minute of the season.

Bayern conceded a penalty in the final 10 minutes of the game, which Ljubicic converted in the 81st minute due to a lack of concentration.
