Bayern will be looking to continue their run atop the league with a win over Dortmund, They are led by the epic pairing of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller at the top of their attack.
The question for Bayern is who will step up off the wings. Kingsley Coman is looking to bounce back, and Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane are both looking to return to the lineup as well.
Bayern will likely not need too much from those three if the front of the attack is cruising.
Additionally, those looking to bet on soccer can likely trust Bayern manager Hansi Flick, who has yet to lose to Dortmund since taking over the position. Another trend favoring Bayern is the fact that they haven’t lost a home match among all competitions this season.
For Dortmund, they are coming into this game hot. Dortmund hasn’t lost a game in five straight matches and has won their last three away games. However, they will be missing some key members. Jadon Sancho, Raphael Guerrero, and American Gio Reyna will all be unavailable for the match against Bayern Munich.
With such a strong defense from Bayern, it will take a monumental effort from Dortmund to get up on the German champions.
They will look to young budding superstar Erling Haaland to lead the charge on offense. Despite transfer rumors to some of the biggest clubs in the world, Haaland will look to remain focused for this match.
