Bayern Munich - Borussia Dortmund (6 April 2019)

Match prediction
Dortmund is the better hunter, however in this derby they will be the 'hunted'. We our NOT confident that they will be in a position to play high pressure football in a fully packed Allianz Arena. Their young players must be a bit nervous, and Bayern will take this opportunity to chase an early lead. Our expectation is a comfortable HOME win (with a score draw security).

Our prediction: 3-1 | 2-2

--==-- *** --==--

Der Klassiker, also known as the 'German Clasico', is the biggest game of the season. On Saturday, it will be more than just rivalry, it's all about the title race.

A Dortmund victory will put them 5 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.

This game is a must win for Bayern as they face their rivals at the Allianz Arena. Bayern is deceptive for fast pace football. Pushing and pressuring makes them vulnerable. Fearless opponents hurt them in the back, while they wheel over teams with a defensive mindset.

Although Bayern shooting blanks at the Schwardswaldstation against Freiburg last Saturday, it was a tale of two halves on a narrow pitch. With Freiburg keeper Alexander Schwolow being the man of the match, Bayern reached an expected goals (xG) of 3.24 (26 Shots, 8 Shots on Target), meaning that they were very unlucky in their performance.

On the Dortmund side, late heroics against Wolfsburg propelled them back to the top spot in the Bundesliga, giving them a two-point edge at the start of this match.

Achraf Hakimi (Dortmund) will miss the rest of season due to a broken metatarsal.
Abdou Diallo (Dortmund) is also injured for an unspecific amount of time due to a muscle strain.
Reus (Dortmund) will be back, well rested.
