Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich Preview
Saturday, October 8, 17:30 (GMT+1)
Dortmund bounced back from a disappointing 3-2 away loss to Cologne last weekend, as they recorded a resounding 4-1 victory against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League.
Jude Bellingham’s goal against Sevilla made him the first ever teenager to score in three successive Champions League matches as he captained the BVB away at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. Raphael Guerreiro, Karim Adeyemi, and Julian Brandt also scored for the Black and Yellows.
Bayern Munich made it back-to-back wins in all competitions as they humiliated Viktoria Plzeň 5-0 at the Allianz Arena. The Bavarians have scored nine goals while conceding none in their last two matches, giving a feeling that they are back in their groove once more.
Dortmund have lost their last eight competitive games against Bayern since bagging a 2-0 win in the 2019 Super Cup. This is the longest losing streak for the BVB against a single opponent, equaling their losing run against Hamburg between 1982 and 1985.
This is a tie between third and fourth, making it the first time in 13 years that neither team is in the top two going into a game against each other.
Club captain Marco Reus, Mateu Morey, Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, and Mahmoud Dahoud will miss this fixture through injury, while Sebastien Haller will remain sidelined for a long time due to a testicular tumour.
Lucas Hernandez, Bouna Sarr, and Kingsley Coman are expected to be missing for the Bavarians through injury, while Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich have both tested positive for COVID-19.
