Four points separate the two top teams in the Bundesliga right now, but that might change as Borussia Dortmund @3.80 collide with Bayern Munich @1.83 in Der Klassiker at the Signal Iduna Park tonight.
This will be the 125th clash between the two giants.
HOW THINGS STAND
Dortmund is in a different place as a team since these two last met in a 4:0 defeat. The team has been stronger lately with the introduction of your Norwegian superstar Erling Braut Haaland in January. The 19-year-old has scored 10 goals in 10 Bundesliga matches since arriving from Red Bull Salzburg.
Borussia Dortmund is now on the six games winning streak since the beginning of February. BVB’s record against the Bavarian at home has been mixed lately. Under the management of four different managers, they’ve managed only two wins in the last seven matches including three defeats. This match is an absolute must-win for BVB as they know that a defeat tonight could significantly minimize their chances for a title.
After a slow start to the season, Bayern is back at the top of the table. They have been in outstanding form since December having won 12 of their last 13 Bundesliga matches. Bavarians same as BVB have a striker in excellent form. Robert Lewandowski has another fantastic season and he managed 41 goals in all competitions during the 2019-20 campaign so far. He will be desperate to add to his tally and get closer to Gerd Muller record of most goals. Bayern 2-0 victory over Union Berlin on their return to action on May 17 followed by beating Eintracht Frankfurt 5-2 on Saturday afternoon shows that team is focused on winning the title this season.
PREDICTIONS BORUSSIA vs BAYERN
LEWANDOWSKI & HAALAND 7+ SHOTS ON TARGET COMBINED – 8.00
It may be goals galore this evening as the two teams have very strong forwards. Would like to focus on the two key men who have been on top form and have scored since the league returned. I fancy both players to make huge impacts in this game. I bet that they will have at last more than 7 shots on target combined.
LEWANDOWSKI & HAALAND EACH TO SCORE A HEADER – 75.00
It is no secret that both players are prolific in front goal and have scored some breathtaking headers. This is why I chose PlanetSpecial which puts both players to score a header at a whopping 75.00.
LEWANDOWSKI & HAALAND EACH TO SCORE FROM OUTSIDE THE PENALTY AREA – 200.00
The fact that I predict a lot of goals in this fixture does not mean I believe these goals will come easy. I expect a tight game with both teams not giving away easy and cheap goals. Strikers will try to shot from outside the penalty box I would therefore not let this sweet special which has both Lewandowski and Haaland to score from outside the penalty box at a watering 200.00. This is a very likely situation and I won’t be surprised it happens.
BAYERN MUNICH TO WIN, DORTMUND MOST CARDS, BAYERN MUNICH MOST CORNERS – 7.50
Moving from these two players, there are other specials might interest you. If I had to put my money on a straight win ill probably go for a Bayern win but it would be more interesting if I could spice that up with this special because I believe Bayern will dominate the game and put a lot of pressure in BVB who are likely to concede many corners on that day. I expect Bayern to win and have the most corners plus Dortmund to have the most cards in the game at a not too risky 7.50.
The action continues tomorrow with some great games to look up to and be sure that I will be here to give you all the tips and predictions.
