I’m really looking forward to this one as these teams tend to deliver when they meet. Well-known world class players are going to be on show as the two biggest teams in Germany at the moment go head-to-head.
Both sides are in-form as well, having won their last six games and when they meet there is usually plenty of goals. In nine of the last 10 meetings between the sides there has been 3 or more goals.
There is also drama to look forward to with this fixture. In the last four meetings between the sides at Signal Iduna Park, the team that opened the scoring ended up losing the game on three occasions. So, we can expect drama!
This is obviously a massive match in terms of the title race in Germany. Dortmund are four points behind Bayern and really have to win this game to close the gap to a single point and ramp up the pressure.
With so few games to go, I reckon Bayern will go onto win the title if they manage to win on Tuesday. In terms of team news, there is a big doubt on the fitness of Dortmund defender Mats Hummels.
He has 70 German caps and is a World Cup winner. If he’s missing Dortmund will struggle. They brought on Emre Can to play centre back last week, but that is not going to cut the mustard against Bayern.
For me I am going to side with Bayern to win at 5/6. The main reason is because of the way Dortmund are set-up. If you look at the way Dortmund play with the two attacking wing backs, Achraf Akimi and Raphael Gurreiro. Both players scored last weekend, but that the formation is going to leave them massively exposed, when losing the ball in transition.
This game will suit the Bayern counter-attack perfectly, as Dortmund need to win at all costs. If it is still scoreless with 15 minutes to go, Dortmund will start to flood numbers forward and I just see Bayern catching them on the break.
In terms of the goalscoring markets obviously Robert Lewandowski (8/13) and Erling Haaland (11/10) will be the most popular bets in the anytime market, but at a bigger price I like the look of Bayern midfielder Serge Gnabry at 11/8.
The former Arsenal man has 11 goals in the Bundesliga so far this season and he also has six goals in the Champions League as Spurs fans will remember!
If you look at Bayern this season Gnabry, after Lewansdowski, tends to get the most chances in this Bayern team. I just think he represents a bit of value in the Anytime Goalscorer markets.
