Match Preview of Bayern vs Dortmund

On Saturday, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund will meet in a crucial edition of Der Klassiker, with both teams vying for the Bundesliga title. BVB currently sits top of the table, one point ahead of Bayern Munich, having won nine of their last 10 league games. Bayern Munich sacked their head coach, Julian Nagelsmann, after a 2-1 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, and hired ex-Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel to replace him.

Despite some setbacks, Bayern Munich remains one of the favorites to win the Bundesliga, with a league-high 72 goals this season and only failing to score once in 37 competitive games. They are also unbeaten on home soil, alongside third-placed upstarts Union Berlin, and the only remaining German representative in the Champions League.

Dortmund has struggled against Bayern Munich in recent years but managed to come from two goals down to draw the first Klassiker of the season in October. They have since gone unbeaten in their last 10 league matches, with nine wins and a draw in the Revierderby. They have also scored a division-high 30 goals in 2023 and posted 10 more points than Saturday's hosts over that period.

Both teams will have to make some changes to their lineup. Bayern's main concern is the fitness of Jamal Musiala, who may miss out with a hamstring problem. Dortmund will be without teenage duo Jamie Bynoe-Gittens and Youssoufa Moukoko, but Karim Adeyemi and Julian Brandt could return from injuries in time to feature.

Although Tuchel has maintained that he will not make sweeping changes to tactics or personnel, he is likely to alter the XI that lined up for Nagelsmann's final game in charge. Dortmund's hopes of keeping the back door shut when faced by Bayern's fearsome attacking force will be aided by Emre Can's return from suspension.

This match could be a classic 'six-pointer,' with the destiny of the title still to be decided. Although Bayern remains favorites to prevail in the end, a loss on Saturday would deal a heavy blow to their hopes of wrapping up their 11th championship win in May.
