German football comes to its peak as Bundesliga heavyweight Bayern Munich clashes Borussia Dortmund for the 130th edition of ‘Der Klassiker’.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD

Dortmund head into Der Klassiker just a single point behind Bayern, with a win against Wolfsburg taking them to top spot for the first time this campaign. Dortmund went 1-0 behind after just two minutes before Emre Can and Donyell Malen scored to put them ahead in the second half. Marco Rose was boosted by the sooner-than-anticipated return of goal machine Erling Haaland, who needed just seven minutes to find the net to seal a 3-1 win. Dortmund briefly went top of the table with that win, before Leroy Sane’s goal was enough for Bayern to see off the challenge of a spirited Arminia Bielefeld team. Dortmund has a long injury list as Thorgan Hazard, Manuel Akanji, Roman Burki, Giovanni Moukoko are ruled out with injuries.

BAYERN MUNICH RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD

Bayern Munich enters this contest after grabbing back-to-back victories across all competitions. They have lost just two games in the Bundesliga this season – scoring 42 goals and conceding 13. Despite winning five of their last six across all competitions, Nagelsmann’s side has been performing far from the usual exceptional standards that they have set themselves for most of the campaign so far with a shock 2-1 defeat at relegation-threatened Augsburg and narrow wins over Freiburg and Arminia Bielefeld. Bayern Munich’s ruthless attack are averaging over three goals per game in the Bundesliga this season. Joshua Kimmich, Bouna Sarr, Marcel Sabitzer, and Choupo-Moting are ruled out with injuries.
