Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction
This is a rivalry game which both teams are in good shape, no team is seen as the favourites and the game could go either way. The game will tend to be with a high tempo although I’m expecting Dortmund players to induce a rough play. We can expect a higher number of yellow cards.
I expect Bayern Munich to score the first goal and also win the first half of the game but the second half could be anyone’s game.
My Betting Tips: Bayern Munich to score 1st goal / Bayern Munich to win at Half time / Lewandowski to score any-time.
