Der Klassiker is here! First placed Bayern Munich face fifth placed Dortmund in a clash that could well be decisive for the Bavarians as they sit on top with 52 points, just two ahead of second placed RB Leipzig.
Dortmund have experienced a shaky inconsistent season, as have Bayern. But the Munich residents have found their footing of late, with Lewandowski firing in goals for joy. He has scored 4 in the last three games, and a brace in the last match against Koln.
Erling Haaland on the other hand has been in thunderous form for Die Schwarzengleben, most recently putting it outstanding performances against Schalke in the Revierderby and Arminia Bielefeld.
The two show-stoppers are bound to put in a fascinating showing. With the players they possess around them such as Gnabry, Sancho, Sane and Reus, Allianz Arena is sure to experience a spectacle.
