We will give us one of the most exceptionally foreseen matches, in the Bundesliga as well as in Europe, as Borussia Dortmund lock horns with Bayern Munich. The two German mammoths go head to head against one another on Tuesday, at the Signal Iduna Park in a wild challenge, broadly known as Der Klassiker.
In any case, without any fans inside the arena, both the groups should manage a peculiar situation. Dortmund, specifically, are probably going to think that its troublesome playing against Bayern without the help of their Yellow Wall in the NordTribune – Europe’s biggest standing porch with right around 25,000 fans.
Most definitely, it is an unquestionable requirement dominate match for Borussia Dortmund in the event that they are to proceed with their title challenge. The Black and Yellows are trailing Bayern by only four focuses, which means a success on Tuesday could overcome any barrier to a simple one point.
On the other side, a destruction ought to permit RB Leipzig to overwhelm them in second position while giving the Bavarians an almost unassailable lead as we head towards the last period of the battle.
Kick the bucket Geisterspiel in the Bundesliga has just drawn a great deal of analysis for its frightful environment. In any case, no doubt about it – fans over the footballing scene will watch out on this installation. Furthermore, here, at The Hard Tackle, we will be investigating both the sides in front of this tempting Der Klassiker coordinate this week.
Probable Lineup (3-4-3):Burki; Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji; Hakimi, Can, Delaney, Guerreiro; Sancho, Haaland, Brandt
Bayern Munich arguably have been the best team in Europe since the turn of the year. Under Hansi Flick, they have hardly put a foot wrong, registering 14 wins in 17 Bundesliga matches. They are also coming on the back of a 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on the weekend.
However, Dortmund will pose a much tougher challenge on Tuesday for obvious reasons. Die Schwarzgelben already possess one of the best offensive units in Europe, meaning the Bayern defence will need to be extra careful.
Jerome Boateng looked a bit rusty in the last game and might be replaced by Lucas Hernandez. The Frenchman is likely to partner David Alaba at the heart of the four-man backline, with Manuel Neuer in goal.
Meanwhile, Thiago Alcantara is a doubt heading into this game, and his potential absence could serve as a massive blow for Flick. Serge Gnabry, too, is doubtful to feature and could be replaced by Ivan Perisic.
Elsewhere, Davies’ pace, as mentioned earlier, could help the Bavarians exploit space from the right flank due to Piszczek’s lack of speed. So Flick’s side is likely to play with more width, making it difficult for the Dortmund players to execute their quick press after losing the ball.
The offensive partnership between Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski could be critical, with both the attackers regarded among the best performing players in the Bundesliga this season. At the same time, the tenacious nature of Leon Goretza and Joshua Kimmich could be equally important.
Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Hernandez, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Perisic, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski
- Bayern Munich have hit nine goals without reply across the previous two Bundesliga meetings with Borussia Dortmund (4-0 and 5-0), but Dortmund ran out victors the last time they met at the Signal Iduna Park in the league, winning 3-2 on Matchday 11 last season. In fact, Dortmund have lost just one of the last four (W2 D1 L1) Klassiker matches on home soil.
- Dortmund also clinched the Supercup at their famous ground back in August, meaning coach Lucien Favre has a 100 per cent record at home against Bayern with two wins from two.
- Erling Haaland’s return of 10 goals in as many games means the Black-Yellows are the only Bundesliga team this term with three players in double figures for goals: Haaland (10), Marco Reus (11) and Jadon Sancho (14).
- Robert Lewandowski is the league’s top scorer this term with 27 goals, scored at a rate of one every 82 minutes. Haaland, who joined in January, has bagged his 10 at a rate of one every 69.
- The Poland captain is also this Bundesliga fixture’s record scorer (17 goals) across spells at both clubs (16 for Bayern, one for Dortmund) and Lewandowski has notched 12 goals in his last six Klassiker outings – scoring on every occasion. He has also scored at least twice in each of the last four league games against Dortmund, a run that dates back to his hat-trick in the 6-0 demolition of his former employers on March 31, 2018.
Player to Watch
Jadon Sancho is as of now attached with Lewandowski as the most profitable player in the Bundesliga this season. However strangely, he hasn’t assumed a key job in helping Dortmund secure two consecutive successes, aside from making sure about a help for Raphael Guerreiro’s objective against Wolfsburg.
On Tuesday, however, Sancho is relied upon to come back to the beginning lineup, potentially to the detriment of Hazard. His pace, craftiness and a practically clairvoyant mix with Haaland could assume an enormous job in directing Dortmund’s destiny in this apparatus.
Much the same as Bayern, the home side will likewise hope to misuse the absence of pace of the contradicting safeguard, and that is the place Sancho’s eccentric runs could prove to be useful. Also, his consistent difference in positions should make it hard for the Bavarian guard to act in a trained way, consequently making him one of the most significant players in this installation.
Borussia Dortmund 1-3 Bayern Munich
Regardless of Borussia Dortmund’s certain structure heading into this apparatus, it is quite sensible to expect a Bayern Munich triumph this week.
In spite of the fact that the hosts are the second-best side in Germany, there is an inlet of contrast among them and Bayern, which will become possibly the most important factor on Tuesday, particularly with Dortmund missing two or three their key players. Thus, we are expecting an agreeable 3-1 win for the guests.
