Borussia Dortmund are going to visit Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena today at 17:30(CET).
A potential title-decider descends on Munich as Bayern’s 1-1 slip-up against Freiburg last weekend makes this 100th top-flight ‘Der Klassiker’ against back-on-top Borussia Dortmund a must-win. However, with each of the last 4 Bundesliga head-to-heads featuring over 3.5 goals, don’t expect a cagey affair.
Formidable at home, Bayern have won their last 7 league fixtures at the Allianz Arena, 5 ‘to nil’. In fact, they won their last two Bundesliga home matches 6-0, the exact same scoreline that they hammered Dortmund by the last time these 2 met here. However, as a note of caution, Bayern have lost the last 4 league head-to-heads when they entered the game below Dortmund in the table.
The Bavarian outfit will be seeking a strong start considering 8 of their 9 home wins this top-flight campaign saw them net the opener. Yet while visiting Dortmund will be working hard to stop that, they have recovered more points after losing the opening goal than any other Bundesliga team away from home this term (W2, D1, L2 – after conceding opener).
That stat includes Dortmund’s hard-fought 3-2 comeback victory over Hertha Berlin in their last away outing, although 1 win in their last 4 top-flight road trips hardly inspires confidence (W1, D2, L1). That win was also the 1st time in 9 Bundesliga away matches that Dortmund scored more than twice.
