Will Bayern Munich keep their 10-match unbeaten run against Borussia Dortmund | Der Klassiker Preview
This weekend promises another thrilling football encounter as the giants of German football, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, face off in the iconic Signal Iduna Park for the highly anticipated Der Klassiker.
In the Bundesliga standings, Bayern Munich currently occupies the second spot with 23 points, while Borussia Dortmund follows closely behind in fourth place with 21 points. The competition is fierce, and both teams remain unbeaten in the Bundesliga this season. Dortmund, in particular, is under immense pressure to secure a victory as they haven't tasted success in Der Klassiker since 2019. Bayern Munich has asserted dominance in recent times, winning nine out of the last ten encounters, with a solitary draw in October 2022.
However, for Bayern Munich, their recent exit from the DFB-Pokal at the hands of Saarbrucken was a setback. Their focus now shifts to the Champions League and the Bundesliga as they aim to claim glory in these competitions. So far, Munich has been impressive in the Champions League, winning all three of their matches.
One of the standout performers for Bayern Munich has been Harry Kane, who has been unstoppable, netting an impressive 14 goals in just 15 matches across all competitions. Additionally, Leroy Sane has been in top form this season, with 8 goals, showcasing his resurgence.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund, despite trailing behind Munich in the Bundesliga, is still in contention for a treble after a recent victory over Hoffenheim in the Leagues Cup. Their home record remains unblemished this season, with Signal Iduna Park living up to its reputation as a fortress.
Borussia Dortmund's performance this season has been a bit of an enigma. They secured a crucial win against Newcastle in the Champions League at St. James's Park but suffered a 2-0 defeat to PSG in Paris and settled for a draw against Heidenheim in the league. Their start has been promising, but consistency remains a challenge.
The stage is set for this weekend's Der Klassiker, and it promises to be a clash filled with drama. With Thomas Tuchel and Harry Kane set to experience this iconic rivalry for the first time and Marcel Sabitzer now playing for the opposing team, the excitement is palpable. Don't miss out on this thrilling encounter as Der Klassiker kicks off this Saturday at 1:30 Eastern time. It's bound to be a spectacle for football fans around the world.
