Borussia Dortmund (2) and Bayern Munich (1) go head-to-head in a massive top-of-the-table Bundesliga (BL) clash at the Signal Iduna Park this midweek.
With just four points separating the sides ahead of the kick-off, the hosts desperately need a victory to keep their dream of overthrowing Bayern at the top alive. ‘Die Borussen’ enter this round on a run of six consecutive league triumphs, five of which have yielded a clean sheet. In turn, Lucien Favre’s men have secured five straight BL home victories ahead of this matchup, shutting out their rivals on four of those occasions. Impressively, Dortmund tend to destroy their opponents on home turf when they win, as seven of their ten BL home successes have come via at least a four-goal margin. But, it will be a daunting prospect for Dortmund to win here, as they’ve lost to Bayern via at a four-goal margin in both of their previous BL H2Hs.
Meanwhile, the visitors have continued to impress following the coronavirus crisis, securing back-to-back BL triumphs, both of which came via a multiple-goal margin. As a result, the perennial German champions have now won all but one of their last 14 league fixtures (D1), beating their opponents by at least a two-goal margin on 11 of those occasions. Equally outstanding away from home, the ‘Bavarians’ have racked up a five-game winning BL run on the road, scoring over 2.5 goals per match four times in the process. Additionally, quick-fire Bayern have opened the scoring in 11 of 13 BL road trips this season, failing to hold on to an early lead only twice across such games (D1, L1).
