Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund Betting Preview

A massive game in the Bundesliga takes place on Saturday evening as Borussia Dortmund make the journey to the Allianz Arena to take on league-leaders Bayern Munich.

Bayern currently top the table and look the best team in this German top flight by far, whereas Dortmund are the current champions and know they must take all three points in this one to have any chance of retaining the title they won so impressively last season.

Josef Heynckes’ men are flying right now and sit ten points clear of Bayern Leverkusen and eleven clear of their opponents on Saturday evening. They know just what a win in this one would do for their title hopes.

After taking 18 points from a possible 21 at the Allianz Arena this campaign, it is no surprise that the home side are the favourites with the bookmakers to come out on top in this one as they are at 4/5 with SkyBet.

Dortmund can, on their day, be one of the best teams in Europe and they must raise their game for this one. There is no doubt that the champions of Germany are capable of coming out on top and they are a good value bet at 18/5 with BetVictor to claim all three points.

Jurgen Klopp knows what a tough place Bayern Munich is top come and pick up the points, but they have shown this season, especially in the Champions League what a top quality side they are.

In the Bundesliga though, Dortmund have not been anywhere near their best and dropped points on home soil yet again during midweek. Klopp’s men have won their last three encounters on the road however, so betting on them picking up the points here could be popular.

The atmosphere inside the stadium is sure to be electric as there is big rivalry between these two sides and each will be desperate to come out on top.

The first goal-scorer market could be where to place your bets for this one and in-form Bayern striker Mario Mandzukic is one of the front-runners to score first at 4/1.

Robert Lewandowski is then a big contender with the bookies as well as he is at 6/1 with Bet365 to score the first goal in this one.

However, we like the look of heading into the correct score market for this one and think that the home side will be too strong on the night with the support of their own fans behind them. A 3-1 win for the current leaders in the Bundesliga is at 13/1 with 188bet.
