Home   /   Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Preview

On Saturday, November 7, joint league-leaders Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich go head-to-head in the Der Klassiker.

Both teams will be eager to make the top of the table their own as they meet for the first time this season at the empty Signal Iduna Park.

Dortmund come into the game off the back of a 3-0 victory against Club Brugge in the Champions League Group Stage on Wednesday.

Lucien Favre’s side have won their last four games and kept a clean sheet in each victory; however, whether they can retain that impressive defensive form against a free-scoring Bayern Munich side is the real question.

Bayern are coming into this game following a 6-2 win against Austrian side RB Salzburg.

Like Dortmund, Bayern Munich will be going into this game with a lot of confidence and hoping to take all three points back to the Allianz Arena.

Team News:

Dortmund will have to make do without experienced centre-back Mats Hummels after he was substituted off during their European exploits in midweek.

Usual replacements Emre Can and Dan-Axel Zagadou are still sidelined with injury and fitness concerns meaning it looks likely Thomas Delaney or Axel Witsel will have to step up for the Black and Yellows.

Bayern Munich are without Alphonso Davies following an ankle ligament injury, as well as Niklas Sule, who is quarantining after testing positive for COVID-19.

Both sides are still looking strong and their respective managers will be eager to gain a three point advantage at the top of the table.

Bayern Munich are on the hunt for their 9th consecutive Bundesliga trophy, whereas Dortmund are striving to celebrate their first title since the 2010-11 campaign.

The match kicks off at 17:30 GMT.
