The two biggest clubs in German football will meet in Bundesliga on Tuesday night as Borussia Dortmund go head to head with Bayern Munich.
Match: Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich
Date: Tuesday, May 26th
Kick-off: 5.30 pm GMT
Borussia Dortmund Recent Form
After a few years of fans and pundits wondering whether or not Dortmund were past their best, one of Europe’s most popular clubs is on the rise once again with a young squad full of talent. They’re right up there in the title race mix, and if they can get a win here, many will view them as the favourites to go all the way.
Dortmund’s biggest disappointment in recent months came in the form of their Champions League elimination at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, as they lost 2-0 in the French capital and 3-2 on aggregate. Aside from that, though, it’s been hard to fault them. They edged out big wins over Werder Bremen, Freiburg and Borussia Monchengladbach before the lockdown, and since the league’s return, they’ve eased to 4-0 and 2-0 wins over Schalke & Wolfsburg as they make a case for being the most entertaining team in European football.
Bayern Munich Recent Form
There are a few certainties in life: death, taxes and Bayern Munich challenging for the Bundesliga title. Despite some struggles earlier on in the campaign, Bayern are starting to look like a team that is not only capable of winning the league – but also a team that could challenge in the UEFA Champions League.
Flawless is the best way to describe this Bayern team as they continue to storm towards yet another triumph in the Bundesliga. After battering Chelsea in the Champions League they proceeded to stick six past Hoffenheim, keeping a clean sheet in the process. They then registered three more clean sheets in wins over Schalke, Augsburg and Union Berlin before a convincing 5-2 demolition of Eintracht Frankfurt.
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction
There’s simply no home advantage to be found for Dortmund with no fans being allowed into stadiums right now, but even with that being the case, we think they’ll give Bayern one hell of a run for their money. It should be an incredibly fast-paced encounter from the word go, but if the visitors are smart, they’ll try and slow the tempo down in order to try and frustrate their rivals.
There are too many talented attacking stars that’ll be on the pitch for this to be a dull game, which is why we’re going to be backing a 2-2 draw. Bayern won’t want to risk it all in search of three points, because they’ll be well aware of the fact that they’ve got a comfortable four-point lead over Dortmund already. It may not sound like much, but avoiding defeat at all costs should still be the objective for them here, especially in a game that is bound to get off to a quick start.
