Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Live Stream: How to Watch, Team News, Prediction, Odds, Head to Head And More

Borussia Dortmund will take on Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

All eyes will be on Der Klassiker this weekend as Borussia Dortmund go up against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

This game is easily one of the biggest matches taking place this weekend across Europe, with the two title challengers going head-to-head in the first of two matches this season.

BVB find themselves second in the standings but have been fairly inconsistent in their last five games, picking up just six points in all competitions and losing to both Ajax and Sporting CP in the Champions League.

Bayern, on the other hand, are sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga, but only have a single point's advantage over their rivals, with four wins from their five which included a shock defeat at the hands of FC Augsburg at the WWK Arena.

With Robert Lewandowski narrowly missing out on the Ballon d'Or Award this week, the Polish superstar will be keen to prove his critics wrong in what is a monster of a game.

Team News

Dortmund Head Coach Marco Rose.

Erling Haaland could not have timed his return to action any better, having featured during his side's 3-1 win against Wolfsburg last time out, and will be in contention to start for Rose's side.

Raphael Guerreiro could also return at left-back for the home side and Thorgan Hazard is still uncertain at this stage. 

With Jude Bellingham ruled out with a knee injury, Rose has options with Axel Witsel, Emre Can and Mahmoud Dahoud.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann

Bayern are expected to field a strong line-up, but Nagelsmann still has some important players missing from his squad.

Marcel Sabitzer, Bouna Sarr and Josip Stanisic are all still sidelined with muscle injuries, and Joshua Kimmich is still out which should mean that Corentin Tolisso comes in for his second game running.

With the Bayern boss believed to be trying out 18-year-old Jamal Musiala in his system, we don't think he will start this game.

Dortmund Predicted XI: Kobel, Meunier, Akanji, Hummels, Guerreiro, Can, Witsel, Dahoud, Brandt, Haaland, Reus 

Bayern Predicted XI: Neuer, Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies, Tolisso, Goretzka,  Coman, Müller, Sane, Lewandowski


Prediction

Taking Dortmund's recent form into account, Bayern should get the win here. But with the return of Haaland, BVB will not make it easy and we can see him getting on the scoresheet.

Prediction: Dortmund 1-2 Bayern
