Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany.
Saturday 9th November.
Kick-off: 18:30 (CET).
Bayern Munich are at home to Borussia Dortmund in a crucial match for the Bundesliga title.
Bayern recently sacked Niko Kovač as manager and assistant coach Hans Dieter Flick will take temporary charge. Bayern were thrashed 5-1 by Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend, and it was the straw that broke the camel’s back in regards to the tenure of Kovač. Despite their slow start, the other teams in the Bundesliga haven’t been flying either, and they are only four points behind leaders Borussia Monchengladbach. The Bavarians are still firm favourites for the title, and you can back them at 1.40 for an 8th straight Bundesliga triumph.
Dortmund have made an average start to the Bundesliga. Whilst not being a disaster, they know from last season that they can’t afford to give Bayern Munich any breathing space. They will be encouraged by their recent victory over leaders Monchengladbach and their extraordinary comeback against Inter Milan midweek in the Champions League. After being 0-2 down at half-time, they ended up winning 3-2. Achraf Hakami scored two goals in the comeback, and STS are offering odds of 7.50 for him to score again.
Who to watch?
Bayern and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has 14 goals already in the league and has scored in every league and Champions League match this season. He also has 14 goals in 10 Bundesliga appearances against Dortmund, and they need to stop their former player from getting into the game to have a chance of winning this one. You can get odds of 3.00 for Lewandowski to score two goals in this match.
Wingers Thorgan Hazard (6) and Jadon Sancho (5) are the current assist leaders in the league, will they have a significant influence on this match?
Match preview and H2H
The recent H2H between the two is fairly even with shared victories last season. Still, Bayern annihilated them 5-0 at the Allianz Arena which played a huge part in deciding the title race. STS have odds of 4.10 for Bayern to score 4+ goals again. However, Dortmund won 2-0 in the German Supercup earlier in the season which suggests they have somewhat recovered from last season’s Allianz nightmare. With Bayern Munich in slight disarray, now is a perfect time for Dortmund to stamp their authority on the Bundesliga with a win against the German giants.
