All eyes will be on the Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night. As Borussia Dortmund face Bayern Munich in a match that will all but seal the fate of the Bundesliga title.
The two table-topping sides will go head to head as Dortmund look to close the four-point gap at the top. With only seven games left time is running out for Dortmund’s title bid. This game is a must-win for BVB.
Dortmund came through this weekend with another impressive victory winning 2-0 away at inform VfL Wolfsburg. Raphael Guerreiro continued his good form since the resumption of football. The wing-back scored his third goal in two games putting his side 1-0 up.
Fellow wing back Achraf Hakimi wrapped the game up making it 2-0 in the 78th minute. This was the second week in a row where Dortmund dominated the whole game and never looked to get out of second gear.
In the late kick-off Bayern Munich survived a second-half scare to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 5-2 at home. The game looked over in the 46th minute as Robert Lewandowski put his side 3-0 after goals from Goretzka and Muller.
Suddenly, Frankfurt scored two goals from two corners in the space of three minutes. Bayern then sealed the win to move four points clear at the top again.
The reverse fixture between these two sides saw Bayern Munich cruise to a 4-0 victory at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern will expect a harder game as Dortmund have won their last six in a row in the league. Since the league has resumed Dortmund have scored six whilst conceding zero.
This is a fixture that very rarely disappoints, as the two side have no played out a 0-0 in the Bundesliga since 2016. Also, the last six games the league has seen over 2.5 goals in those games.
There are no fresh injury concerns for either side from the weekend. There was a slight worry for Dortmund fans as they saw Mats Hummels substituted off at half time. It was later confirmed as a precaution in fear of aggravating a foot injury the club were already aware of.
That substitution meant Emre Can saw 45 minutes off the bench as he stepped up his recovery from injury.
For the second weekend in a row Jadon Sancho came off the bench this time in the 65th minute. His impact on the game didn’t take long as he provided the assist for Dortmund’s second goal. These extra minutes could see Sancho finally return to the starting line-up.
Dortmund team prediction: Burki; Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji; Hakimi, Can, Brandt, Guerreiro; Sancho, Håland, Hazard
Bayern Munich team prediction: Neuer; Pavard, Boating, Alaba; Davies, Muller, Goretzka; Coman, Lewandowski, Gnabry
