Borussia Dortmund's Axel Witsel is fired up to make amends for last season's disappointing 5-0 loss to Bayern München when the two teams meet in 'Der Klassiker' in Munich on Saturday.

"We're going to Munich to win the game. We want to make amends for the horrible 0-5 loss in our second game against them last season," Witsel said in an interview with Sport Bild and added:

"We are aware that this will be anything but easy. Bayern is and remains a big team with a winning meantality and a lot of experience. But we want to show that we have character and fighting spirit. We will fight back this time."

Witsel and Dortmund sit second in the Bundesliga table ahead of Saturday's game - one point in front of fourth-placed Bayern München.
