Recall that on December 4, 2021, Bayern Munich visited Borussia Dortmund for a German Bundesliga game that would determine the leaders of the league table.
Referee Felix Zwayer who German FA banned from officiating for six months in 2005 because he was found guilty of match-fixing officiated the game.
Unfortunately for Borussia Dortmund, the referee denied them a penalty and granted Bayern a spot-kick after Dortmund’s Mats Hummels committed a handball offense in the penalty box.
Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski stepped up and scored the goal that ended up being the winning goal. After the 3-2 victory over Dortmund, Jude Bellingham told ViaPlay that: German FA gave “a referee, that has match fixed before, the biggest game in Germany.”
