Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund

In arguably the biggest game of the Bundesliga in the last few years (yes, we know Dortmund's fixture against Schalke is a big deal), Bayern Munich host Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker in what will be a high octane clash. Dortmund are quite some way behind Bayern in terms of points collected, something which has been the case in the last few seasons.


Bayern have dominated the tie in the last 10 games, losing just twice in the process. The two side have faced each other thrice this season already and Bayern have won all of them. The three fixtures have come in different competitions; in the Supercup as the curtain raiser for the season, in the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal that Bayern won on penalties.


Dortmund were pretty inconsistent in the first half of the season but have been much better under Peter Stoger. The side are are just a point behind archrivals Schalke. Bayern could rest a few players for the clash considering they travel to Sevilla for their Champions League quarterfinal clash. Dortmund, meanwhile, were knocked pout of the Europa League and don't have anything to play for except for the Champions League place and their pride in the Bundesliga. After all, no one wants to finish behind their neighbours, do they?


The last time these two sides faced off in the Bundesliga was in November last year. Dortmund were going through an indifferent spell at the time and were soundly beaten by the Bavarians at Westfalenstadion.


Key Players


For Dortmund, Marco Reus will be key. Joshua Kimmich is likely to play and Reus will be the toughest opponent he'll face all season. Back to full fitness, Reus has hit the ground running, having scored thrice already in the Ruckrunde. Bayern will rely on Lewandowski up front and the pole does have a good record against his former side.
