A strange Klassiker

A Klassiker this late into the season is often a title decider. But that definitely isn’t the case this season. For the first time in 14 years, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund meet in the second half of the Bundesliga season without either team being top of the table. The last time that was the case, Bayer Leverkusen were top of the league, ahead of second-placed Bayern on goal difference.

The gap between Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen right now is 10 points, so the chance of them repeating their 2009/10 feat of winning the league is very slim. But they’ll keep going until it is mathematically impossible, knowing that is all they can do. After losing back-to-back matches against Leverkusen and Bochum, Bayern have returned to form in the Bundesliga.

They’ve won three of their past four league games, only dropping points in a 2-2 draw with Freiburg. Bayern went into the international break off the back of a 5-2 win over Darmstadt, coming from behind to avoid any talks of another wobble.

Ten points behind Bayern are Dortmund in fourth, and their fight is a lot different. Dortmund face a fight to ensure Champions League football next season. Of course, they could secure their spot if they go all the way in the competition this season, but Dortmund won’t be fancied even with their more favourable route.

As things stand, Dortmund are just one point clear of fifth-placed RB Leipzig with eight games to play. Draws have been an issue for Dortmund this season with eight in total, but they go into this match on a decent run. After losing to Hoffenheim at the end of February, Dortmund have won three in a row, beating Union Berlin, Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt.

Given their dominance of this fixture, it’s no surprise to see Bayern Munich favourites. Even when they are in poor form, you can count on Bayern turning up against Dortmund. The visitors’ chances are hampered by their own struggles this season, in a battle just to secure Champions League football.
