There are few rivalries more intense and drama-fuelled than Germany’s perennially-anticipated Der Klassiker, but this weekend’s showdown between Bayern and Dortmund takes on added element of spice as the Bavarians could confirm the Bundesliga title if they seal victory, clinching silverware and bragging rights in one foul swoop.
It’s been a topsy-turvy maiden campaign in the Bavarian dugout for Julian Nagelsmann, but he will forever etch his name in Bayern folklore should he seal the club an unprecedented 10th straight Meisterschale in front of Dortmund. Indeed the incentive from both clubs is huge this weekend; Bayern to clinch glory in style, and BVB to avoid the ultimate humiliation.
Nagelsmann will need this moment if he is to gloss over Bayern’s chastening Champions League exit to Villarreal and second-round elimination in the DFB-Pokal, but Marco Rose will also be in need of a boost with BVB facing the all too real possibility of a trophy-less season. A win here could remedy some of the frustration from his first season in the Westfalenstadion.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Match Stats
Bayern (89 goals) and Dortmund (76) boast the two best attacks in this Bundesliga season, with only Bayern themselves surpassing 89 goals after 30 games in Bundesliga history (90 in 2019/20), while BVB have only scored more goals after 30 top-flight games in 2019/20 (81). Of course, it certainly helps when you have Robert Lewandowski (32) and Erling Haaland (18), who sit first and third respectively in the Bundesliga scoring charts this season. In this particular fixture, there have been an average of five goals per game in the last five meetings, so expect plenty of final third action from two side hard-wired to attack.
