Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich build-up, pre-match team news & previous line-ups:
Both clubs are level on 15 points after six games this season but the defending champions have the lead at the top of the table due to a superior goal difference.
Bayern’s recent record at the Westfalenstadion is pretty decent given they’ve only lost twice across their previous eight visits which also includes four wins.
Dortmund will be seeking revenge following defeat in the German Super Cup before the 2020/21 campaign got underway, but will Lucien Favre get the better of Hansi Flick or is another Bayern victory on the cards?
- Borussia Dortmund (vs Club Brugge): Bürki; Meunier, Witsel, Akanji, Guerreiro; Delaney, Dahoud; Hazard, Brandt, Reyna; Haaland.
- Bayern Munich (vs RB Salzburg): Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Hernández; Kimmich, Tolisso; Gnabry, Müller, Coman; Lewandowski.
Mats Hummels is set to miss out facing his former side as he’s currently sidelined with a muscle injury. Dan-Axel Zagadou and Marcel Schmelzer join him in the physio room. However, Emre Can is available for selection again.
Bayern remain without Alphonso Davies, Tanguy Nianzou and Niklas Sule but could be boosted by the return of Leon Goretzka. However, Benjamin Pavard is a late doubt with a thigh injury.
Players to watch:
Borussia Dortmund: Since making a high-profile move to Dortmund earlier this year, no player under 21 has created more headlines than Erling Haaland, who continually shows the fearlessness needed to succeed at the highest level. It’s an understatement to suggest the Norwegian marksman is a goal machine and, heading into his third meeting with Bayern, he’ll be confident of making another big statement. Haaland’s previous league outings against the German champions saw him being kept quiet, but last time out in the DFL-Supercup he gave Manuel Neuer and his defence something to think about. With five goals already under his belt he’s warmed up for the Bundesliga’s biggest game this weekend.
Bayern Munich: You’d be hard pressed to find a more lethal strike in European football today than Robert Lewandowski whose insatiable appetite for goals shows no sign of abating. He’s already scored 10 times across five Bundesliga outings and his former club have been warned. Since leaving North Rhine-Westphalia, Lewandowski has faced Borussia Dortmund on 21 occasions, registering 18 goals in the process including four Bundesliga goals at the Westfalenstadion.
Scoreline prediction: Borussia Dortmund 2-2 Bayern Munich
