Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund Predictions

Score: Bayern Munich 4 Borussia Dortmund 2

No other game is bigger in the Bundesliga than the Klassiker and the second go ‘round between Bayern and Dortmund could see a similar result like their first encounter.

Bayern is a clear-cut favorite and while the “Bavarian Giants” sit atop the table, many would agree that this isn’t the best squad we’ve seen in recent years but they are very fun to watch.

Offensively, nobody is close to them in Germany as the attack has posted 67 goals but the defense has conceded 32 goals and backing “Both Teams to Score” in Bayern games has been as good as gold this season.

Dortmund could be limited for this clash with both Jadon Sancho and Raphael Guerreiro nursing injuries. BVB hasn’t won at Bayern in league play since 2014 and while I expect them to see the net on Saturday, they’ll be chasing all day long.

Bayern is averaging 3.8 goals in 11 home matches this season and they've only posted two clean sheets during this span. Nobody has defeated them but three draws are on the resume, allowing three goals in two of those ties.

If Flick's squad shows up and does well finishing, they post four-plus goals easily on anybody and I believe that's the case in this spot.
