Take a look at our Dortmund vs Bayern Munich betting preview and prediction.
Dortmund (Form and News)
Eyeballs across Europe will turn to Signal Iduna Park for the Bundesliga’s primetime game as Borussia Dortmund welcome their great foes Bayern Munich for the 134th edition of Der Klassiker (BOR: W32, D35, L66). With minds refocused after picking up just a point against Bayern last season on the way to losing out on the title on the final day, Dortmund now have the opportunity to leapfrog the perennial title winners with victory.
It was a frustrating Sunday afternoon for Dortmund in the previous round as they had to come back from 2-0 and 3-2 down against Frankfurt just to claim a draw. Even so, that remarkable ability to bounce back from adversity sees them as one of just two sides yet to lose after going behind in league action this season (W2, D2), a pertinent quality indeed considering they had to claw back a 2-0 deficit to draw in this corresponding fixture last season.
Player to watch: Niclas Füllkrug enters the game on the back of five goal contributions in his last six appearances for club & country (G3, A2).
Edin Terzic cannot count on Julien Duranville (thigh). Emre Can (thigh), Mateu Morey (knee), and Marius Wolf (knee) are questionable to feature on Saturday.
Bayern Munich (Form and News)
It’s not often that this fixture rolls around without one or the other being top of the tree, but Bayern are making a good go of hunting table-topping Leverkusen down with their solid nine-game unbeaten Bundesliga start (W7, D2). They capped that run off with the biggest win of the round, an 8-0 win over Darmstadt in which Harry Kane scored his second Bundesliga hat-trick!
Only the brave would bet against Bayern here as the Bavarians have picked up 16 of the last 18 available away points (W5, D1), despite keeping just one clean sheet and falling behind twice during that sequence. This game could foreseeably follow a similar route as whilst the side scoring first has won just once across the last four away Bundesliga H2Hs, Bayern didn’t lose any of them (W3, D1).
Hot stat: Last weekend, Bayern became the first team in Bundesliga history to score 34 goals after nine rounds.
Player to watch: Harry Kane averaged a goal every 66 minutes for Bayern this season and has contributed to 17 of their 34 league goals, a Bundesliga record for any team at this stage.
Thomas Tuchel will be without Kingsley Coman (ankle), Joshua Kimmich (suspension), Gabriel Marusic (knee), and Matthijs de Ligt (knee). Noussair Mazraoui (illness) and Sven Ulreich (illness) are questionable to play.
Dortmund vs Bayern Munich H2H Record
Bayern are unbeaten in the last ten H2H encounters (W1, D1). The Bavarians are also without a loss in the previous seven H2H duels at Signal Iduna Park.
Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Odds
Dortmund are +295 underdogs in this clash. A draw is at +340, while you can back Bayern Munich at -110. For the goals, Over 2.5 is at -233, and Over 2.5 is at +250. The both teams to score bettors can choose between BTTS YES at -250 and BTTS NO at +240. Take a look at more Bundesliga odds here!
Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Betting Pick
As you can see in the odds section, betting on Over 2.5 goals or BTTS YES makes no sense. Well, I am going to spice things up a bit and here you’ll see why. Each of the previous eight H2H meetings produced at least four goals and both teams managed to score on each occasion. In seven of those eight encounters, Bayern scored 3+ goals, which was the case in two of the last three H2Hs in Dortmund.
Expect a spectacle on Saturday and a minimum of four goals combined. For those who can use bet builders, I suggest to go with Over 3 goals & BTTS YES at +105, which is exactly what I am going to back. In case you don’t have such an option with your bookie, go with Over 3.5 goals at -110.
