Reason For Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Predictions

  • Over 3.5 goals has landed in each of the last six Bundesliga meetings between these two sides.
  • There has been an average of 4.83 goals per game over the last six Bundesliga Klassikers.
  • Nine of Dortmund’s last 14 Bundesliga games have seen four or more goals scored.
  • Dortmund have scored exactly two goals in three of their last six league games, while Bayern have in two of their last three.

Signal Iduna Park set for crucial Klassiker

The stage is well and truly set for the biggest game of the Bundesliga season. Tuesday evening sees Borussia Dortmund host arch rivals Bayern Munich in a deserted Signal Iduna Park knowing that defeat could spell the end of their title aspirations.

Borussia Dortmund come into this match four points adrift of the reigning champions and, with defeat leaving them seven points behind, they know this is their big chance to tip the momentum back in their favour. However, when facing the juggernaut of Die Roten, winning is a lot easier said than done.

Both sides showing excellent form

Der BVB are looking back on a run of excellent form, with a comfortable 2-0 win at Wolfsburg on Saturday making it six Bundesliga wins on the bounce. They have scored 15 goals in that period, but even more impressive is the fact they have only conceded once.

At home they are unbeaten since April 2019, winning 11 of their 14 league games there since. That being said, the home advantage becomes a lot less significant without the 80,000 strong Signal Iduna Crowd at your back.

Bayern Munich are in sensational form as well. Recovering from an unusually slow start to the season, the visitors have now won 12 of their last 13 Bundesliga games and are unbeaten in 17 competitive games. They have won 16 of those meetings, and their 5-2 demolition of Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday showed that their attackers are firing on all cylinders.

Importance of home advantage diminishes

Home advantage has been very important in this fixture over the past few years. The hosts have won each of the last five meetings, but as we’ve already seen the lack of crowd support has significantly diminished the home advantage.

At the time of writing, the home side has won just three of the 15 Bundesliga fixtures since the return of football, and it isn’t a surprise to see that Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich hold two of these three victories.

One thing we’re always expecting when these two sides meet is goals. The last six Bundesliga Klassikers have seen 29 goals in total and, with all of them ending with at least four goals being scored, we think backing over 3.5 goals is a great choice.

While the home advantage is somewhat diminished, we do expect it to play a small part in this tie. These two teams are a cut above the rest of the Bundesliga in terms of quality and, while Bayern may harbour an advantage in this regard, it’s very difficult to separate the two sides. Jadon Sancho’s expected return to the starting lineup makes the hosts even more dangerous.

Our correct score prediction suggests that a stalemate could be on the cards, albeit a high scoring one. Dortmund have scored two goals in three of their last five Bundesliga matches, while Bayern have done the same in two of their last three outings. For this reason, a 2-2 scoreline is our favoured pick.
