Der Klassiker is back and ready to rock the Bundesliga.
Join us as we delve into the rivalry between two great German sides and give you a rundown of everything you need to know with some interesting Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund betting options.
BAYERN MUNICH VS BORUSSIA DORTMUND BETTING
After overcoming a few minor mishaps throughout their season, Bayern Munich stand tall in their customary spot atop the Bundesliga table. However, this could all change this weekend with Der Klassiker.
The Bavarians face the tough task of beating Borussia Dortmund during a delicate time in their campaign. Hans-Dieter Flick’s side will be fully aware of the importance of a win this Saturday, especially with second-place holders RB Leipzig on a run of fantastic form and just two points away from the top spot.
Recent victories (4-1 vs Lazio & 5-1 vs Koln) should prove to be a great source of confidence ahead of the game. With their frontline firing on all fronts, including ex-Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski, who is at 7/20 (1.35) to score his 35th goal of the season, Bayern Munich look poised to put their rivals to the sword and seal their 17th league win.
Things haven’t exactly gone as planned for Borussia Dortmund this season. Having already lost more games than they did last year, BVB enter Der Klassiker in fifth-place, 13 points off their opponents.
Although they’re not quite where they want to be, there have been a few positives along the way. Norweigan striker Erling Haaland, who is at 5/7 (1.72) to score this Saturday, continues to impress the world with his ability, already finding the net 27 times in the 27 fixtures he has competed in. Jadon Sancho also continues to enjoy his share of the plaudits, with the Englishman securing double-digits for both goals (12) and assists (16).
While history favours Bayern Munich, who only earlier this season won their 62nd game against BVB (3-2), Edin Terzić’s side should be more than keen to give the reigning champions a run for their money, especially as they find themselves in decent form after winning all of their last four games.
