After a surprise exit from the Champions League at the quarter-final stage by the hands of Villarreal, Bayern bounced back with a dominant performance against Arminia. An own goal from Jacob Laursen just 10 minutes in put the Bavarian ahead before Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musial netted at the end of each half to seal the win. 

The result helped Julian Nagelsmann’s side to move nine points clear at the top of the table, and has presented an ideal opportunity to confirm the retention of their Bundesliga crown against their competitive rivals. 

On the other hand, Dortmund will be looking to delay Bayern’s title-bid by at least one more week. Recent visits to Allianz Arena have included 5-0 and 6-0 defeats, whilst Dortmund have conceded at least three goals to the league leaders in each of their last five meetings in all competitions. 

However, in the last match against Wolfsburg, Erling Haaland’’s brace and goals from Tom Rothe, Axel Witsel, Manuel Akanji, Emre Can secured a 6-1 win. If Dortmund can strengthen their defence, they can surely frustrate the leaders like numerous sides have in the recent past.

Bayern struggles to find a way past a solid and disciplined defence as we saw against Villarraeal. The Bavarians lacked the creativity to find a way past a compact defence. 

Probable Lineup

After missing last week’s game, Kingsley Coman and Lucas Hernandez should be available to make their returns for Bayern on Saturday. Meanwhile Leroy Sane may be pushed to the bench.

As for Dortmund, because of so many injuries, head coach Marco Rose has limited options to choose from. First-choice goalkeeper Gregor Kobel has been ruled out due to an ankle injury while former Bayern centre-back Mats Hummels is also unavailable. 

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup: Neuer, Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies, Kimmich, Goretzka, Gnabry, Muller, Coman, Lewandowski

Borussia Dortmund possible starting lineup: Hitz, Pongracic, Akanji, Zagadou, wolf, Bellingham, Can, Guerreiro, Brandt, Reus, Haaland.
