Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in each of the last four league fixtures between these two teams, and Bayern have won the last six head-to-head Bundesliga meetings.
  • Dortmund’s seven home Bundesliga games this term have featured 30 goals, with both teams netting in all but one.
  • Bayern are averaging over three goals per game in the league this season.
  • The visitors are, however, yet to keep an away clean sheet in the Bundesliga.

Der Klassiker Promises Entertainment

There aren’t too many fixtures in world football which consistently provide the same level of excitement as Der Klassiker, the meeting of two clubs who, between them, have won 24 of the last 28 Bundesliga titles. Dortmund’s 100% home Bundesliga record will face its sternest test to date on Saturday, as BVB look to leapfrog their great rivals into top spot.

Marco Rose’s team have been boosted by the sooner-than-anticipated return of goal machine Erling Haaland, who needed just seven minutes to find the net after returning from injury as a substitute in their 3-1 win at Wolfsburg. He now has a remarkable 10 Bundesliga goals in just seven appearances, averaging a goal every 56 minutes.

Dortmund briefly went top of the table with that win, before Leroy Sane’s goal was enough for Bayern to see off the challenge of a spirited Arminia Bielefeld team. Julian Nagelsmann’s men should have won that game more comfortably after creating 2.3 expected goals, and will be hoping that Robert Lewandowski returns with a point to prove after his Ballon D’Or snub. The Pole has 23 goals in league and Europe this term, while Bayern have now netted a mammoth 102 league goals in 2021.

Bayern to Make a Statement?

For all the exuberance and intensity of recent Borussia Dortmund teams, Bayern Munich have always seemed to have a hold over them on the big occasions. Bayern have won the last six Bundesliga meetings between the teams, and after seeing their lead at the top of the table cut to a solitary point, will be out to demonstrate their superiority once again on Saturday evening.

Dortmund’s perfect Bundesliga home record looks very vulnerable in this encounter; they only have one home clean sheet to their names this campaign, an ominous sign considering Bayern have already racked up over 70 goals in all competitions this season.

I’m backing Bayern to continue their excellent Klassiker record in what is sure to be an entertaining affair. However, with the perennial champions failing to keep a league clean sheet on the road this term, and with both teams scoring in each of the last four head-to-head meetings between these giants, both teams to score looks a very strong play. A breathless 3-2 win for the away side is worth a punt as a correct score prediction, for the same reasons.
