Bayern vs Dortmund | Match Info, Preview & Lineup


Bayern Munich vs Dortmund preview, Saturday's Bundesliga match closed with Der Klassiker at the Allianz Arena, with leaders Bayern Munich hosting second-placed Borussia Dortmund.

The hosts will clinch their 10th straight league title with a win, in what looks set to be a thrilling encounter for Germany's standout fixture.

A comfortable 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld last weekend had put Bayern on the brink of another Bundesliga title on Saturday.

An own goal from Jacob Laursen took just 10 minutes to put the Bavarians ahead, before further goals from Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala at the end of each half earned them regular wins against small sides.

The three points put Julian Nagelsmann's side nine points clear at the top of the table, and have given them the ideal chance to ensure defending their Bundesliga crown against their competitive rivals.

Bayern may not have been anywhere near their best over the past few weeks – with their surprise two-legged Champions League exit to Villarreal coming on either side they stumbled at home against struggling Augsburg – but the one thing that is almost guaranteed with this club is the ability them to appear on the day against Dortmund.

Three years have passed since Bayern were beaten by BVB, and five years since they were beaten at home to their title challengers, with several comprehensive wins recorded at the Allianz Arena along the way.
