Except for the Premier League, the three derbies that football fans expect the most are El Clasico (Real Madrid vs Barcelona), Derby di Milano (Inter Milan vs AC Milan), and Der Klassiker (Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich). One of those will take place tonight, and let’s figure it out!

 

Recent performances

Bayern Munich has shown their dominating performance since winning the 2019/2020 title, and there isn’t any sign that they will stop. Bayern has won five out of their six latest matches, their only loss coming from the 1-2 loss against Frankfurt. Die Roten is still on top of the table with 31 points, one point more than Borussia Dortmund.

If Dortmund wins over Bayern tonight, they will take Bayern’s first place. Dortmund has also won five of their six latest matches, the only team that they lost to is RB Leipzig. Especially, Dortmund has only lost one league game when Erling Haaland takes part in the starting XI.

Head-to-Head & Stats

Dortmund has lost all six recent matches against Bayern Munich, and they will hope to have a good result tonight. Their latest encounter comes from August, where Bayern won 3-1 with goals from Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller while Dortmund’s goal scorer is Marco Reus.

Injuries & Suspensions

Dortmund won’t have their strongest squad as Mateu Morey, Youssoufa Moukoko, Giovanni Reyna, Marcel Schmelzer, Roman Burki, and Thorgan Hazard are dealing with several problems. Jude Bellingham is also in doubt with a knee problem that prevented him from featuring against Wolfsburg.

Borussia Dortmund

 

Joshua Kimmich is still recovering from CoVid-19 and he will miss out this match. Apart from him, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Marcel Sabitzer, Bouna Sarr, Michael Cuisance, Tanguy Nianzou, and Sven Ulreich will also be unavailable.
