Two greatest rivals of German football face-off in this much-anticipated match at the Alliaz Arena. Bayern and Dortmund have had the best and craziest rivalry in German football and their matches are always a visual treat for the viewers and fans. Currently, Bayern are rock-solid at the first position with 52 points and Dortmund are at the 5th position with 39 points. Though their title-hunt is beyond reach, there is a lot of pride at stake and they should be vying for the elusive top-four mark.
Douglas Costa, Tanguy Nianzou, and Corentin Tolisso will be unavailable for this game and Benjamin Pavard’s availability is also not sure.
For Dortmund, Axel Witsel, Marcel Schmelzer, and Manuel Akanji are out with injuries.
The only issue on Bayern’s plate is their little lead ahead RB Leipzig. If they can broaden the lead, the title will be exclusively theirs. They are coming on the back off two comprehensive wins over Lazio and FC Koln. They netted 5 goals against FC Koln as Lewandoswski and Serge Gnabry scored 2 each. Plus, they have a strong record against Dortmund as the latter’s last league-stage win against Bayern came in 2018.
Edin Terzic’s team will have to aim for a top-finish. They are presently at the fifth position in the table with 39 points under their belt. They also are in pretty good form as they have won 4 out of their last 5 games. With Frankfurt still ahead of them by 3 points, the Black and Yellows need a win in this match.
