A key battle for the Bundesliga title

Bayern Munich face Borussia Dortmund for 'Der Klassiker' in a clash that have so much at stake and promise us to be spectacular.


Bayern Munich are just four points ahead of Borussia and the hosts will try to cut that deficit to just one point.



On Saturday we saw that Bayern have difficulties in the air as the have conceded two quick goals from corner as they played against Eintracht Frankfurt.


Borussia on the other hand showed us that they are vulnerable when the opposite team is pressing them despite Wolfsburg did not have any scoring chances through the game.


However, Borussia played very well on the counter attacks and they managed to score two goals against their opponent.


Bayern Munich also managed to beat Frankfurt with 5-2, but things have gone otherwise if it was not Alphonso Davies who helped the team score the 4th goal of the game.



Today Dortmund will play against Bayern knowing that if they lose, the title looks unlikely.


Favre's side will try to exploit space at set-pieces as Bayern showed a real weakness in their last game.


Bayern have defenders that are pretty quick in the face of David Alaba and of course Alphonso Davies so Dortmund game on the ground will be difficult.




Bayern Munich possible line-up



The steaks are very high today so we expect the both teams to come up with their best line-ups.


Most definitely we will see Manuel Neuer between the posts as he is in very good form recently.


Leading the defence will be David Alaba and Jerome Boateng as the duo proved that they are very solid in defence and Flick can rely on them.


Alphonso Davies is the probable starter in the left-back as the Canadian has an unbelievable speed and he is not only helpful in defence, but he creates chances in the penalty area of the opponent.


Benjamin Pavard is probably going to play on the other side as right-back.


Last time Thiago Alcántara was sidelined, but today we expect him to start for the team as he has good dribbling ability and that help the team break through the opponent defence. We expect him to partner with Joshua Kimmich as they will have more of a defensive role.



Thomas Muller, who is a regular starter, is most certainly going to start again as he scored a goal and assisted one in the last game against Frankfurt. This time we might see him playing on the left wing.


Leon Goretzka might start today as an attacking midfielder as the German has been in a pretty great form recently scoring goals in both previous matches for the team.


On the right wing we expect to see Serge Gnabry, who was sidelined in the last game and came as a substitute in the last minutes of the game. Flick did not want to risk him as he needs him for today's game.


Leading the attack of course will be Robert Lewandowski, who scored 27 goals for the Bundesliga giants this season.





Borussia Dortmund possible line-up



As usual we expect to see Roman Burki starting for the team. In defence Hummels, Akanji and Piszczek.


We don't expect to see many changes in Dortmund's team today. As usual we might see Raphael Guerreiro, who has an incredible performances in the last two games.


Julian Brandt will start most probably as he created dangerous chances in front of the opponent goal.


This time we expect to see the wonderkid Jadon Sancho start the game, as the Englishman came in as substitute in the last games.


And of course leading the attack will be Erling Haaland.
