Bayern would look to build on their 2-0 win over Olympiacos when they host the first version of Der Klassiker this season.
Borussia Dortmund would look to build on their impressive come-from-behind 3-2 win over Inter Milan in the Champions League.
Bayern Munich was on the receiving end of a 5-1 thumping at the hands of Eintracht Frankfurt and the club’s hierarchy didn’t hesitate to fire Niko Kovač after such a humiliation.
Borussia Dortmund became the first team to beat VfL Wolfsburg in the league this season and they did it in style after beating their visitors 3-0. They have also beaten the league’s leader twice this season and another win here would be a major statement of intent from Lucien Favre’s side.
Still waiting to name a manager, Bayern would be led out by Hans-Dieter Flick who would look to impress enough to get the job until the end of the season at least.
Bayern Munich has been struggling with several injuries this season and their defence has been the most hit. They would still be without the services of Niklas Sule, Lucas Hernandez, while Jerome Boateng would serve a suspension.
Borussia Dortmund has played the last three games without Marco Reus and he looks set to miss this game. Marcel Schmelzer won’t also play any part in this game.
Head to Head
Bayern Munich has a solid head to head against Borussia Dortmund as the host has won seven and lost just two of their last 10 heads to heads.
Dortmund has also been at the end of heavy losses the last two times they visited the Allianz Arena with both trips ending 5-0 and 6-0, respectively.
Bayern hasn’t been the best defensively this season and that explains why they were beaten 5-1 at Frankfurt. They are the joint top scorers in the division, yet they have the worst defensive record in the top 10.

Bayern Munich has been the joint best-attacking team in Germany this season but their defence seems to let them down. The 16 goals they have conceded in the division this season is the worse among the teams in the top 10.
Borussia Dortmund has found some defensive solidity after their 3-1 loss at Union Berlin earlier in the season. They have also found a way to get results from difficult situations that is why they have won their last 3 games ahead of this match.
When these two teams meet, it rains goals. While Bayern has been scoring all the goals when Borussia Dortmund came to town on the last two occasions, we believe Dortmund would share the goals this time.
Robert Lewandowski has been in fine form yet again and he has scored in each of his 10 Bundesliga games this season, he is the perfect choice for anytime goal scorer.
