“Der Klassiker”, the most awaited match in Germany, will take place today at Allianz Arena when Bayern Munich receive Dortmund in their home turf.
Niko Kovac parted ways with Bayern Munich at the start of last week, making way for Hans-Dieter Flick to assume the command while the club’s searching and recruiting a new manager. Talks have been centered about Arsene Wenger, José Mourinho and Erik ten Hag, but a decision is yet to be made. They’ll arrive at this match not playing their best football, as the team seems disconnected from one another, and facing a strong opponent in Borussia Dortmund could be dangerous at this time of the year. Robert Lewandowski has scored in every single game this season (!) and is Bayern’s major threat upfront, while Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry provide excellent crosses for him and have the ability to disrupt the opposition’s defense. Both teams have already played this year for the Super Cup final, with Borussia Dortmund taking the best out of Bayern in a 2-0 win. The Baviera side usually has the upper hand in “Der Klassiker” at home, however, Dortmund’s looking like the most dangerous team at the moment. The home team has seen their last five games for the Bundesliga producing goals for both teams, so it’s expected for that to happen again today.

Borussia Dortmund come from an incredible comeback in the Champions League against Inter Milan. The hosts trailed by 2-0 at half-time, but behind Hakimi’s heroic efforts, they took the three points in a much needed win. Lucien Favre’s team hasn’t come away with a victory at Bayern’s soil since 2014, something that they’ll try to change this year, as they are one point ahead of their rival in the league table, and could even extend that lead. One of their main stars, Marco Reus, is questionable for this game. While they have enough quality players to field against Munich, Reus is a key piece in Favre’s system, providing a much needed goal scoring threat and playmaking ability. Paco Alcácer scored the game winning goal in their two previous Head-to-Head. Look out for the striker to score in this match as well.
Borussia Dortmund has scored all of their eight goals in the previous three games after half-time, as they usually start the game slow while adjusting to the opponents strategy. I expect the same scenario in “Der Klassiker”
