Dortmund vs Bayern preview & prediction

Match preview

In the Bundesliga on Saturday evening, Borussia Dortmund will face Bayern Munich.

The two rivals enter Der Klassiker tied on 15 points after eight games, with Bayern one spot ahead of their opponents due to a significantly superior goal difference.

Despite losing two of their last three league games, Dortmund should be confident going into their meeting with Bayern, especially after a convincing 4-1 win away to Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek.

England international Jude Bellingham, who captained BVB in Seville, became the first teenager in Champions League history to score in three consecutive games.

Given their upcoming opponents’ recent lack of form, he may believe it is time for Dortmund to deliver in front of a raucous Westfalenstadion and demonstrate that they have what it takes to stay in the title race this season.

Last Friday night, Bayern returned to winning ways in the Bundesliga with a 4-0 thrashing of hapless Bayer Leverkusen, with Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, Sadio Mane, and Thomas Muller all scoring to demonstrate the Bavarians’ enviable firepower.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side followed this up with a 5-0 win over Viktoria Plzen of the Czech Republic on Tuesday night, maintaining their perfect record in the Champions League so far this season and moving six points clear of third-placed Barcelona in Group C.

However, Bayern’s trip to Dortmund on Saturday could be their toughest test of the season, providing a more accurate indication of whether they have put their remarkable run of four winless league games prior to the international break behind them.
