Bayern vs Dortmund – Bundesliga: The derby between Bayern München and Borussia Dortmund doesn’t have any weight on the standings
At least for the Bavarians that currently have a 17-points advantage over Schalke 04, sitting in 1st place and about to confirm another German title.
For the visitors, the situation will be a little bit different, considering that Borussia Dortmund is far from having a confirmed place amongst the top pack of the Bundesliga.
In third place, with 48 points, they have Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig behind them, sitting between 3 and 5 points ahead of them.
However, it is, still, a derby, and in Germany, derbies are the matches where Bayern München wins.
Still, the Bavarians have lost their last match in the Bundesliga, against RB Leipzig, and they have already this next Tuesday a Champions League match, in Sevilla.
Therefore, it won’t be a surprise if Jupp Heynckes decides to rest some players in this match, putting more of their resources into the match against the Spaniards.
Without being able to count with Manuel Neuer and Kingsley Coman, the team comes into this match slightly weakened.
But the scenario is even worse for Borussia Dortmund. The team is no longer on the European competitions, but they come into this match under great pressure of their pursuers.
When it comes to availability, the number of players they have injured is also higher, so Peter Stoger has very limited options on this situation.
The fact that the team didn’t get two consecutive wins since the first half of February is another problem that has been haunting the daily life of the club, that was expecting much more out of this season.
Bayern München vs Dortmund – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Playing at the stadium of their greatest rival, but also great dominating force of German football,
is always a good opportunity to find a little bit of glare on the season. But the most likely scenario here is seeing Bayern München winning.
