Dortmund: Huge Injury Problems

Dortmund underperformed by their high standards last season, even if they did finish as runners-up and decided to sack Marco Rose after one season in charge and replace him with Edin Terzic. While there have been disappointing defeats against FC Koln, Werder Bremen, and RB Leipzig, Dortmund has also shown it can grind out results when needed. They are now sitting fourth in the domestic league standings with 15 points picked up in eight games, and they are trailing leaders Union Berlin by just two points.

They kicked off their Champions League campaign in style with two wins in three matches and have a great chance to finish second behind Man City and qualify in the knockout stages. Jude Bellingham, who captained Dortmund for the first time last weekend, is the player to watch for the hosts.

Dortmund’s surprise capitulation in Koln on Matchday 8 deprived them of the chance to go top of the table and maintain their three-point advantage over Bayern. If Dortmund wins, in front of their raucous Yellow Wall, no less, it would be a morale-boosting result that would lift confidence in their ability to mount a sustained title tilt. It’s tough to back Dortmund, given their injury issues, so we won’t include them in our soccer picks and parlays. They will be without captain Marco Reus, Mahmoud Dahoud, Sebastien Haller, Mats Hummels, Mateu Morey Bauza, Giovanni Reyna, Marius Wolf, and Jamie Bynoe-Gittens.

Bayern Munich: World-Class Squad

Julian Nagelsmann is widely regarded as one of the finest tactical masterminds in the game. After being winless in four consecutive Bundesliga matches, Bayern bounced back last weekend, destroying Leverkusen 4-0 on home soil. They doubled that with a convincing 5-0 win against Plzen in the midweek UCL action, and they are ready to close the gap on the top spots with a victory in Der Klassiker.

Jamal Musiala is in the form of his life, Sadio Mane is back among the goals, and the top spot is up for grabs, so we have all the ingredients for an entertaining match between two great teams. Bayern’s spread of goalscorers extends to a league-leading 10. Musiala is head of the pack with five in seven appearances, followed by Mane with four and Leroy Sane with three. Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, and midfield heartbeat Joshua Kimmich have scored twice.

Julian Nagelsmann’s interchangeable four-man front line can’t be stopped, and we expect them to continue their superb goalscoring form. The Bavarians are sweating on the fitness of Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Muller, but the duo is expected to start from the first minute against Dortmund. Given their amazing attacking firepower, you should continue to back Bayern Munich if you’re betting online.

Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Head-to-Head

Bayern Munich has a brilliant head-to-head record against their rivals, winning their previous eight encounters. On top of that, they scored at least three goals in seven of them, covering the spread on four occasions. Dortmund lost just once at home this season in the 3-2 defeat to Werder Bremen.

Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Prediction

Despite being on the road, the Bavarian giants enter this clash as heavy favorites priced at -150 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 3½.

Bayern Munich, like every year, has multiple game-winners in their squad. Dortmund’s home stadium has one of the best atmospheres in Europe and can intimidate any visiting team. However, Bayern Munich is one of the few teams that can cope with the pressure. We expect a high-scoring affair between two great attacking sides, but we also expect Bayern to cover the spread and take advantage of Dortmund’s injury issues.
