Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich
Date: Saturday, 10 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Signal-Iduna-Park (Dortmund).
A real buzz is expected in and around Signal-Iduna-Park as Borussia Dortmund host Bayern Munich in the new edition of Der Klassiker in the last game of the day on Saturday..
The difference between this and most of previous derbies is that Dortmund will be the team to head into it with more confidence.
Die Schwarzgelben are really enjoying their time in Bundesliga this season. They won seven, drew three and lost none of ten matches so far and deservedly hold the very top of the standings being four points clear off Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich.
The story is quite opposite with the Bavarians who are going through a very turbulent period at the start of the new campaign. They have already had way too many slip-ups so far in the season.
The latest came last weekend when bottom-half Freiburg left Allianz Arena with a point in their pocket thanks to a last gasp equalizer from Lucas Holler.
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Head-to-head
This will be the 113th Der Klassiker.
Bayern Munich were the more successful side so far with 54 wins to Borussia’s 29.
The Bavarians notched as many as six goals without conceding a single in the previous derby played in late-March this year at Allianz Arena.
Bayern won each of last four head to head ties with Die Schwarzgelben.
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Niko Kovac should have already been sacked according to German press, but the Croatian manager “survived” all slip-ups. He now has a chance to completely raise the spirits inside the dressing room and change the course of the season with a three-pointer over bitter rivals at Signal-Iduna-Park.
However, it’s really hard to see such scenario coming given Dortmund have been just ruthless towards their rivals on the home patch so far in the season. They won as many as seven and drew one of eight home games in all competitions.
Dortmund bagged as many as 30 goals in 10 Bundesliga outings. This is their time to shine and we have to see the value in backing the home win or draw double chance at 1.75. Braver tipsters can even try with the clear home win at 3.10.
