Prediction for Bayern - Dortmund
The Klassiker, the match between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, is the most important match in German football.
The Bavarians and the Millionaires are now at the top of the Bundesliga and the meeting could have a huge impact on the title fight.
Bayern, who changed managers before the international break, are in worse form than Dortmund, who visit Munich.
All this promises an interesting event at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
In the fall, the match between the two teams played at Signal Iduna Park ended in a 2-2 goal draw.
But before that, the Bavarians totally dominated with 8 consecutive victories. And in the last 7 of them there were 4 or more goals.
As in most cases there were hits in both doors.
I foresee something similar happening today, given the not-so-strong defensive play from both sides.
But on the other hand, in front positions, each of them is in their own whirlwind and they score with ease.
My prediction is for a goal show.
Bayern Munich are unbeaten at home and with a new coach
Bayern Munich trail Borussia Dortmund by one point with 8 rounds to go.
The Bavarians opted to change their coach last Friday.
Julian Nagelsmann was released. Thomas Tuchel was appointed in his place to usher in a new era at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern will aim to win the Bundesliga and the Champions League under their new manager .
Who previously worked for Dortmund, PSG and Chelsea.
The 1:2 loss in the derby against Leverkusen was probably the last straw for the Munich management.
The Bavarians are unbeaten in their last 17 home games.
And at the moment they are on a streak of 4 wins in all competitions as a home team.
Bayern players have scored 13 goals in these 4 games and conceded just three (in one game), recording 3 clean sheets.
Chelsea vs Aston Villa Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview
Borussia Dortmund lost once in 2023 (11-1-1)
Since the end of the World Cup, Borussia Dortmund have not lost a single Bundesliga match (9-1-0).
Chelsea beat them in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge.
But Edin Terzic's side had won 10 consecutive official matches in all competitions before that.
BVB then drew 2-2 against Schalke at the Riverside in the local derby.
Which showed that there might be some slight crisis in the team. But that was not the case.
The millionaires humiliated Cologne in the last challenge in the Bundesliga before the break for the national teams.
Borussia Dortmund thrashed the Goats 6-1, crushing their opponents for the full 90 minutes.
The yellow and black have scored two goals in 6 of their last 8 away games.
And they have huge offensive potential, despite the constant injuries to their forwards.
The match in Munich will be an important test to see if Borussia have championship-caliber talent.
Bayern Munich team news
Thomas Tuchel is the new head coach of the Bavarian team. Whether this was a smart move by the management remains to be seen.
He had little time to work, as his entire squad did not assemble until midweek due to the absence of nationals.
"It is not a time for big changes in systems or tactics," Tuchel explained at his presentation on Saturday.
Jamal Musiala's participation is questionable.
Borussia Dortmund team news
For Dortmund, Gregor Kobel, Karim Adeyemi and Nico Schlotterback are fit to play after injury concerns.
But Jamie Bynoe-Gittens is likely to miss the game.
Yusufa Mukoko could also feature after missing the last 5 matches with an ankle injury.
However, Julian Brandt's expected return after two games with a hamstring strain is key for Borussia.
