Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Bundesliga 2021 Match Preview, Injuries/Suspension, Match Facts, Team News, Prediction and Where to Watch.

The 130th edition of ‘Der Klassiker,’ a match between Germany’s two most renowned teams and passionate rivals, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, comes to the city for the 130th time.

Bayern Munich has won 49 percent of the previous 129 meetings (W63, D34, L32), and the Bavarian giants have also won the last six competitive meetings!

Dortmund will be optimistic of shocking its great rivals and taking top spot in the rankings with win, despite their previous H2H record and historical bias, after posting the third-best start to any Bundesliga season in history (W10, L3).

This season, they have a perfect home record (W7), and another three points here at Signal Iduna Park would equal their longest ever run of 12 straight Bundesliga home wins, which they set in 1994.

Bayern comes into this match with back-to-back victories in all competitions, despite a rare defeat in their last Bundesliga away match against Augsburg (L 2-1).

As a result, the visitors’ defensive woes have now stretched to nine away German top-flight matches without a clean sheet, their longest such run since 2010/11.

Regardless, Bayern’s march towards a tenth consecutive league victory has been aided by their greatest Bundesliga start in six seasons, with 31 points after 13 games.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side have scored more goals than any other team in Europe’s top-five leagues this season, averaging 3.23 goals per league match (42).

Players to Watch

With his goal last time out, Dortmund’s Erling Haaland became the fastest player in Bundesliga history to achieve 50 goals in 50 games, although he may be overshadowed by Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski, fresh off winning the ‘Striker of the Year’ award, will be confident of scoring more goals against his previous club, despite the fact that he has never scored more goals against any other single opponent (24).

Team News

Borussia Dortmund

In last weekend’s triumph over Wolfsburg, Erling Haaland returned from injury considerably sooner than expected and scored off the bench.

His return is crucial for the league ahead of this weekend’s match against championship contenders Bayern Munich.

After returning to first-team training after being out for so long due to injury, Gio Reyna was greeted with praise by his teammates, but he will not be pushed back.

Dortmund are concerned about England international Jude Bellingham’s availability due to a knee injury.

Thorgan Hazard is still fighting to overcome COVID-19, while Youssoufa Moukoko is out for the season due to a muscular ailment.

Raphael Guerreiro and Marius Wolf are both on the verge of making their comebacks.

Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowski will be playing in his 350th competitive game for Bayern Munich, and he will be hoping to add to his incredible 319 goals.

Leon Goretzka has a hip injury and won’t be able to practice this week, while Josip Stanisic has a thigh ailment and will miss the game.

After COVID, Niklas Süle is back in training and might start ahead of Benjamin Pavard.

Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting were the latest players to test positive for COVID and miss out, although Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, and Michael Cuisance have been cleared to participate.

Marcel Sabitzer is dealing with a calf injury, Tanguy Nianzou is dealing with a shoulder issue, and Bouna Sarr is dealing with an adductor issue.

Match Facts

Dortmund has won 11 of their past 12 home games (Bundesliga).

In 14 of Borussia Dortmund’s last 16 games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored (Bundesliga).

In their last 11 home encounters, Borussia Dortmund has scored at least two goals (Bundesliga).

Over 2.5 goals have been scored in 13 of Borussia Dortmund’s past 15 matches versus Bayern in all competitions.

In all competitions, Bayern Munich has won the last six meetings with Borussia Dortmund.

In all competitions, Bayern has scored at least two goals in 13 of their last 15 encounters against Borussia Dortmund.

In eight of Bayern’s previous nine road games, there have been more than 2.5 goals scored (Bundesliga).


Dortmund has won all seven of their home league matches this season, but this weekend will be their toughest test.

Bayern Munich has scored in 60 consecutive league games and has a league-high 102 goals in 2021.

Dortmund being only one point behind Bayern after many games without Erling Haaland is huge, and now that he’s back, they’ll be confident of maintaining in touch with the championship favorites.

The fact that only 15,000 fans will be present in the stadium due to new German limitations is clearly a setback for Dortmund.

Robert Lewandowski, a Dortmund player from 2010 to 2014, has scored 20 goals in 14 games against his previous club, more than any other player in Bundesliga history.

Despite Bayern’s COVID difficulties, particularly Joshua Kimmich’s absence, a goal or two from Lewandowski might flip the game in Bayern’s favor.
