Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich: Visitors backed to win ‘crucial Der Klassiker’



Tuesday evening sees the big two in the Bundesliga collide, with Borussia Dortmund hosting Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker.

Not only is the match much-anticipated due to the break in the season caused by the coronavirus outbreak, but also because the two sides are fighting for the title.

After 27 games, Bayern sit top of the table. They are four points ahead of their rivals.

But that could all change after Tuesday, with Dortmund claiming the home advantage despite the absence of fans.

Both teams head into the crucial fixture in top form since returning to action. Lucien Favre’s men have beaten Schalke and Wolfsburg 4-0 and 2-0 respectively. Hansi Flick’s outfit meanwhile have overcome Union Berlin 2-0 and Frankfurt 5-2.

The visitors are currently 9/10 to take all three points. The hosts can be backed at 11/4. A draw is available at 17/5.

The champions eased to victory last time out. They won 4-0 at Allianz Arena, and are currently 28/1 to do the same this time around.

Robert Lewandowski netted twice in that meeting, and now boasts 27 league goals this season. The Pole is currently 11/5 to score first and 2/5 to score anytime.

Fellow forward Serge Gnabry also found the net that day. The former Arsenal man is available at 11/2 to score first on Tuesday, and 5/4 to score anytime.

Mats Hummels found his own net late on to add a fourth in that meeting, and it’s currently 8/1 for another own goal to be scored.

Thomas Muller is 5/4 to add to his tally for the season. And it’s 7/2 for attacking full-back Alphonso Davies to make it two goals from two. 

But the home side have an equally attacking full-back in Raphael Guerreiro. The Portugal international has three goals in his last two games. He’s 11/1 to score first and 11/4 to score anytime.

Right-back Achraf Hakimi also scored last time out, and he’s 9/2 to grab another.

Dortmund also boast one of the top striking talents in Europe in Erling Haaland. The youngster is currently 10/3 to score the game’s opening goal.

With both sides in scintillating form going forward, and resolute at the back, it looks set to be a tense evening. It’s currently 4/1 for a home win and both teams to score, and 7/4 for a Bayern victory and both teams to score.

The home side are available at 6/1 to make it three clean sheets in a row.

And the visitors have been given odds of 3/1 to keep a clean sheet of their own.
