Der Klassiker: bet on Borussia Dortmund - Bayern Munich!


The Bundesliga is only in its second week since reopening and we’re already getting a highly anticipated matchup as Borussia Dortmund prepares to host leader Bayern Munich. If there is one game that could decide which team will lift the German league cup when the season’s over, it will undoubtedly be this game right here! Let’s dig a little deeper into the history and statistics of this classic to see if we can use our insights and fresh knowledge for some smarter bets…

Borussia Dortmund – Bayern Munich (Tuesday May 26, 6.30 p.m.)

Der Klassiker is without a doubt Germany’s most important football game. As the competition was halted prematurely before the return game could be played, we now find it as the standout game in all of Europe. The first leg of the encounter ended in a painful 4-0 defeat for Dortmund when it visited Munich last November. That’s not to say that Borussia Dortmund is without chance. These days, the yellow-black outfit can count on a secret weapon in the form of miracle man Erling Braut Håland.

The Norwegian football prodigy has proved his potential right off the bat, and shows no sign of quitting his goalscoring ways any time soon. Bayern Munich is warned, with a gap of just 4 points between its first place (58 points) and Borussia Dortmund’s second place (54 points). There are still some tough games coming up, which leaves plenty of space for big upsets in the remainder of the Bundesliga season. Whoever wins here could very well win the championship title too!
