Team News

  • Jerome Boateng and Holger Badstuber compete for a spot at centre-back.
  • Bastian Schweinsteiger will return to the starting line-up, after being rested during the week.
  • Mario Mandzukic, who has been rested as well, will most likely start ahead of Mario Gomez and Claudio Pizarro up front.
  • Mats Hummels returns to replace Felipe Santana at centre-back.
  • Sebastian Kehl is injured and will be replaced by the more attack-minded Ilkay Gündogan.
  • Mario Götze will probably return to the starting line-up with Kevin Großkreutz dropping to the bench.

Prediction

  • Bayern have had a great season so far and they are already "autumn champions" in record time with an 11-point advantage over Dortmund who are down in third place.
  • Dortmund could only manage a draw against Düsseldorf during the week; a disappointing result after three wins in a row before that. They have recovered from their poor start to the season but a win in this game is a must if they are to retain any chance of defending their title for a third time.
  • Expect this to be an intense game with the two main rivals for the title in the last two years trying to get the best of one another.

  • a 6.3 for weidenfeller? sorry guys, haven't you watched the game? he's player of the game in nearly all german media, with 3 tremendous saves in the last minutes of the game. i also think, that bender(7,1 km in 1st half!) was better in the defensive midfield than gündogan, who unfortunately had not his best day.

  • Boring. I switched on Barca vs Bilbao in 70'.

  • Dortmund win 1-0 goal Reus

  • Bayern 3:2 Borussia Martinez-Kross-Ribery Lewandowski-Kuba

  • Game of the night!

  • Dortmund will win. 1-2

  • This fixture is getting back its old fame. Should be full of goals.

  • wow Dan! Away win? Thats a brave prediction!

  • Dortmund wins

  • Can't wait! One of the biggest games in Europe now! MIA SAN MIA
