Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund
Date: Saturday, 6 April 2019
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
A real buzz is expected at sold-out Allianz Arena where defending champions Bayern Munich will play host to leaders Borussia Dortmund in a mouth-watering Der Klassiker. This derby brings much more than bragging rights to the table as Bundesliga title is at stake with just two points separating the top two sides of the league standings.
Bayern Munich had the pole position, but they slipped up last weekend failing to see off Freiburg away at Schwarzwald-Stadion. The Bavarians only drew 1-1 to stay two points shy of BVB who bagged two super late goals to secure a 2-0 victory over Wolfsburg at the death of the game at Signal-Iduna-Park.
The visitors will thus have the momentum on their side, especially if we know they bagged eight goals in three consecutive league wins. Can they take advantage of it and stay unbeaten against huge rivals in the derby of the season at Allianz Arena?
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Head-to-head
Borussia Dortmund took a 3-2 victory in the first Der Klassiker of the season back in mid-November last year at Signal-Iduna-Park.
Three or more goals were seen in all of last seven head to head encounters between these two likes.
Bayern Munich picked up a demolishing 6-0 victory in the previous H2H meeting at Allianz Arena in March last year.
Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
Bayern played a super interesting affair in mid-week when they barely went past lower-division Heidenheim to advance into the DFB Pokal semi-final (5-4). They bagged an impressive 17-goal tally in last three home fixtures in domestic affairs (two league matches and one cup clash). They will build on such form aiming to take advantage of Borussia’s slower run of form on travels lately.
BVB won just one of past five away games in all competitions. They shipped two or more goals in three of past four away outings. This is what adds on the value of the home win & BTTS bet at 2.62 odds. Over 2.5 goals FT pick is a banker at 1.44.
