Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund Preview

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – Allianz Arena

Date: 31st March 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Bayern Munich fans expected their team to have wrapped up the Bundesliga title last time out, but a shocking defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig means they have to wait.

However, the Bavarians can wrap up the title here with a win provided Freiburg avoids a defeat at Schalke 04.

A win here would also mean that Bayern have beaten BVB three times in one season for the very first time.

Although BVB do have Michy Batshuayi on their books, Robert Lewandoski remains the most potent striker in Germany and his 23 Bundesliga goals so far makes him a danger in this game.

Since he made the switch from BVB in 2014, he has netted 7 times against his former employers.

With their current form, Bayern Munich look poised for another win, however, Peter Stoeger has avoided a defeat in the Bundesliga since he replaced Peter Bosz and that may not change here with a good performance.

Bayern won the last meeting between these sides 2-1 and the Bavarians have 4 wins from their last 5 matchups.
