Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction

The early red card for Jerome Boateng was surely an unexpected hurdle, but it surely is not an excuse for the likes of Bayern to concede a 5-1 defeat. The first half was comparatively in control for the reigning champions, as they limited the number of conceded goals to just two, and in return, they scored one via Robert Lewandowski (who else?).

Later though, Frankfurt realized the desperation the Bavarians were in and increased pressure. As a result, they added three more to the scoreboard, to complete the 5-1 humbling.

Dortmund may have likely drawn inspiration from the struggles their arch-rivals are going through. At home, they were about to lose against Inter, in the Champions League, which would have seen them fall back in the race for qualification.

But, after trailing 0-2 at half time, the hosts hit back three unanswered goals to deliver a comeback win for their fans.

This weekend, it’s an existential game for the title-holders, whereas it’s a major opportunity for Dortmund to pile on the usually indomitable Bayern.

By all means, expect a nerve-wracking ninety minutes, and despite the home advantage, anticipate Dortmund to come through unscathed. Keep note, this deduction is mainly due to the implosion that Bayern has gone through at the moment and the current form of Dortmund.

Any other day, it would have been a win for the hosts.

Going on, while the result may side with the guests, the Munich outfit is surely not going to come out with empty hands. They do have the support of the Allianz Arena, and most importantly, the service of Lewandowski, the most potent striker in the world at the moment.

Add in the struggles of Borussia on the road, and BTTS emerges a major attraction this match-day.
