Dortmund vs FC Bayern: der Klassiker is back

This is the 130th ‘Der Klassiker’ between Germany’s two biggest teams and fiercest of rivals. The visitors have the upper hand overall, winning 49% of matches between these two.

Recent results have also been in favour of the Bavarian team, they have won the last 6 meetings between the two but the hosts will be hoping that their positive start to the Bundesliga season will push them to victory this time around.

Match Preview Dortmund vs. FC Bayern

Dortmund has a perfect home record so far, winning all seven matches played and another win in this fixture would equal their longest ever run of twelve consecutive wins.

Bayern lost their last away match, at Augsburg, as their defence continues to cause issues with them not managing a clean sheet in their last nine league matches.

Bayern did not obtain a clean sheet in nine games now.

Interestingly, Bayern manager Nagelsmann has only managed to win one Bundesliga match against Dortmund. So from a personal point of view, he will be hoping that Bayern’s recent good record continues.

Match Prediction Dortmund vs. FC Bayern

Since Bayern are only one point ahead of their pursuers, the league lead is at stake when the two giants meet on Saturday. Despite playing at home, Dortmund go into this clash as the underdog, given a 26% chance of beating Bayern, who themselves are given a 55% chance of winning. The chance of goals is very high, at 77%!
