Both teams are in top shape and excellent form and have scored at least a goal in their last 6 games.
Dortmund seems to be better in defending compared to Bayern as they have conceded only one goal in their last 6 games while Bayern have conceded 6 in their last 6 games.
The game could go either way, but I tip Dortmund to be victorious at home.
