Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dortmund Dream11 Prediction: Both the teams will strive hard for three points in the title decider.
Borussia Dortmund overlapped their rivals Bayern Munich last week with a victory, but the Bavarians will have a chance to top the table once again this season. Both the sides have won their four of their last five games heading into this titanic fixture which could determine the Bundesliga champion.
Lucien Favre’s side, on the other hand, will be hoping to extend their lead over the reigning German Champions. It will be an interesting clash as both the sides go head-to-head in the closing stages of the season for the major triumph.
As Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund take each other on, we shall look at the Dream11 prediction.
Borussia Dortmund were playing free-flowing football before the Christmas Break and took out teams for fun. Coupled with the injuries and hangover in the break, Lucien Favre’s side have struggled to pick up results in January and February, but the return of Marco Reus and Paco Alacacer have turned the fortunes for the league leaders.
On the other hand, Bayern Munich have won 8 out of their last 10 games to keep themselves within touching distance of Borussia Dortmund. Albeit outscoring the opposition, they tend to struggle when opponents gegenpress and cut down the transition between defence and midfield. Favre’s side repeated the same in the reverse fixture to bag all three points at Signal Iduna Park despite a brace from former Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.
A slip from Bayern Munich would enable Dortmund to jump five points ahead with six games to play in the league. On the other hand, Dortmund have been vocal about their mentality to win the game at enemy territory to put themselves in a fantastic position.
Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
Bayern Munich: The participation of Manuel Neuer and David Alba are doubts because of muscular injuries to the duo respectively and coach Niko Kovac is entirely unsure about their involvement. The rest are all fired up for this fixture. Robert Lewandowski will start up front against his old side on Saturday.
Borussia Dortmund: Raphael Guerreiro and Paco Alcacer are expected to feature in this game, whereas, the long-term absentees, Achraf Hakimi, and Maximilian Philip are ruled out of this fixture, and the fate of Christian Pulisic won’t be learnt unless Favre opens out about the USA International’s thigh injury.
Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Niklas Sule, Mats Hummels, David Alaba, Thiago Alcantara, Leon Goretzka, James Rodriguez, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, Robert Lewandowski.
Borussia Dortmund: Roman Burki, Marius Wolf, Manuel Akanji, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Abdou Diallo, Axel Witsel, Thomas Delaney, Mario Gotze, Jadon Sancho, Marco Reus, Paco Alcacer.
Dream11 Team for Bayern Munich Vs Borussia Dortmund:
Bayern Munich’s talisman Robert Lewandowski has scored 12 goals against Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga alone, including the brace in the reverse fixture at Signal Iduna Park. He loves playing against his former side and picking him as the skipper is a no brainer.
Dortmund’s superstar Marco Reus has scored seven times and set up five times from 12 games against Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. The Skipper scored once in the reverse fixture to complete a resounding turn around and bag all three points. He will prove to be a good choice for vice-captain.
The availability of Manuel Neuer and David Alaba are not yet known, but they had a light training session on Friday, as per Bayern Munich’s manager Niko Kovac.
