Borussia Dortmund – Bayern
Top spot will be up for grabs this weekend in the German Bundesliga with the two giants of German football facing off. Second placed Borussia Dortmund will play host to Bayern Munich. Going to the game, one point separates the two sides, Dortmund on 30 points and Bayern have 31, after 13 matches. The hosts haven’t done quite well in their recent matches, mostly in the Champions League, but here the focus remains tight on the Bundesliga. Dortmund’s talisman Erling Haaland is back from injury and marked his return with a goal in the 3-1 win over Wolfsburg in the last game. In their last 20 league matches, Dortmund have won 17 and will hope to extend the fine run. With Haaland in the picture, spirits at the club are lifted and they will want to announce their title credentials here. In the last four matches against Bayern, Haaland has scored in three. In their last 16 matches in the league, Dortmund have managed just one clean sheet.
Bayern Munich have 17 wins in their last 20 matches across all competitions. In the Bundesliga, they managed to bounce back in their last game after a shock defeat by Augsburg earlier. They are good in attack; having scored in each of the last 60 league matches, and while Dortmund have Haaland, Bayern have Robert Lewandowski. The Polish forward is the league’s lead scorer and he has eight goals in the last six meetings between these two sides. Bayern have been the dominant side in this fixture, winning each of their last six meetings, while they have seven straight wins over Dortmund in Bundesliga. In the last 13 meetings, Dortmund have two wins only. Both teams have scored in the last four meetings and each of these have also produced over 2.5 goals.
With these two sides’ recent forms, it can be tough to separate them. Bayern have been dominant in head to head though. They have good scoring runs and quality in attack; both sides have scored in the last four meetings and those four matches have produced over 2.5 goals. We are backing the same here.
This match will be played on 04/12/2021 at 19:30.
