Team News

Bayern
Borussia Dortmund
  • Manuel Neuer suffered a muscle injury while on international duty and may not be risked with a more important UCL game against Arsenal ahead. Harry Kane is feeling an ankle injury, which forced him to miss England duty.
  • Noussair Mazraoui and Raphaël Guerreiro are both nearing returns from thigh injuries, while Sacha Boey has suffered another muscle injury.
  • Kingsley Coman is expected back following a knee injury, while Aleksandar Pavlovic missed his international debut with Germany due to tonsillitis.
  • Bouna Sarr may have played his last football for the club after suffering an ACL injury. Tarek Buchmann has undergone surgery on a thigh injury.
  • Coach Edin Terzic will have to see how his side rock up after their international exertions.
  • Ramy Bensebaini is ruled out with a knee injury, while Macel Sabitzer will miss this game against his former club through suspension.
  • Striker Sébastien Haller is back in training after recovering from an ankle injury.

Prediction

  • These two German heavyweights return after the international break for the "Klassiker".
  • Both teams have managed to reach the Champions League last eight, but will be disappointed with their league form as unusually second hosts fourth.
  • Despite 31 Bundesliga goals from the prolific Harry Kane, Bayern have slipped an alarming 10 points behind leaders Leverkusen with their title hopes seemingly in tatters.
  • Bayern won the reverse fixture 4-0 and can comfortably do the double over Dortmund, who have succumbed on their last nine visits to the Allianz Arena.

  • Holy crap! My Bayern Under 0.5 cashes!

  • Terrible performance of both teams.

  • Both brandt and nmecha can't keep the ball at their feet .

  • I hope too bopol.

  • 3-1

  • @neumi17 I agree

  • Stop calling this duel "Klassiker"...it is not if one side almost never wins a title....

  • I just hope the home team lose in this one, a kind of releasing some pressure on Alonso's team to pursue the treble in all calmness.

  • @bopol A treble. Not THE treble. You need the Champions League for that.
