Bayern Muenchen Training Session
Heynckes side will be heavy favourites in Der Klassiker

Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich will once again collide in a much anticipated DFB Pokal clash this midweek. It will be a perfect pre-Christmas bonanza before we end the footballing year of 2017.

Both teams are on a high coming into this game, especially Dortmund, who have registered two back to back morale-boosting wins following the appointment of Peter Stoger. While, Bayern, on the other hand, had to work really hard to edge past Stuttgart and Koln in their recent matches.

However, the Bavarians are still firm favourites going into this game and here's five why reasons why the German champions will destroy Borussia Dortmund this midweek.

#5 World class squad depth

Dortmund are simply way too inferior to compete against Bayern Munich at the moment. The Bavarians boast one of the strongest teams in world football and even their second string team could put up a competitive performance against BVB if not win the game.

Even though the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Arjen Robben have been ruled out for the clash, Bayern still have a squad highly capable thrashing Dortmund any day of the week.

Bayern have proved in the past that they are capable of snatching victories even if they are not playing to their full potential, which has mainly been the reason behind their astounding success in German football for the past five years or so.
