Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Saturday evening sees the 135th edition of Germany’s biggest rivalry as Bayern Munich host Borussia Dortmund at the Allianz Arena.

The Bavarians are on course to miss out on the Bundesliga title for the first time since 2012, with Thomas Tuchel’s side currently 10 points adrift of runaway leaders Bayer Leverkusen with eight games to play.

However, they will be expected to claim the bragging rights in their biggest remaining domestic fixture, given that they last lost at home in the league to Dortmund back in 2014.

Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund Betting Tips and Predictions

Bayern Munich to win to nil @ 5/2

After a poor February which saw Bayern lose three consecutive games across all competitions, the Bavarians look to be back at their dominant best.

Tuchel’s men are unbeaten in five competitive fixtures - winning four - and have scored an impressive 20 goals during this run, averaging four goals per match.

Their last two league matches saw 13 of these goals, with Bayern winning 8-1 at home to Mainz, before putting five past Bundesliga bottom club Darmstadt in a 5-2 victory.

This free-scoring form does not bode well for Dortmund who - despite winning each of their last four in all competitions - have rarely found much joy when facing their long-term rivals in recent seasons.

Die Borussen have lost 10 of their last 11 meetings with Bayern in league and cup contests and the reverse fixture saw Dortmund suffer their worst home defeat to the Bavarians since 2009, as Harry Kane scored a hat-trick in a 4-0 victory for the visitors.

While another drubbing is unlikely, home advantage should swing the pendulum in Bayern’s favour and a repeat shutout victory is more than achievable.

Harry Kane to score 2 or more @ 9/4

Given Kane’s exploits in front of goal this season, it is surprising that Bayern are not closer to the Bundesliga summit than they actually are.

No side has scored more goals in the league this season than Munich and striker Kane tops the goalscoring charts with an impressive 31 goals - nine more than second-placed Serhou Guirassy of Stuttgart - while the Englishman has also registered seven assists.

The 30-year-old returned to Germany from international duty to recover from an ankle injury, but reports suggest that the forward should be fit to feature against Dortmund at the weekend.

With nine goals across his last six appearances in all competitions, Kane’s form is likely to see him find the back of the net again on Saturday and, after bagging a trio of strikes in the reverse fixture, looks a good bet to grab at least a brace.

Emre Can to be booked @ 2/1

Six cards were shown in the meeting at Signal Iduna Park in November and there could be another card-heavy encounter at the Allianz.

Despite both sides being relatively well-behaved this season - both ranking in the bottom five for bookings accrued in the league - derby days are usually fiercely contested affairs and the away side may look to get stuck in to halt the momentum of the hosts.

No player has committed more fouls for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season than Emre Can (21), while he also ranks second on the booking charts for the club with four.

In what could be an intense midfield battle, Can could fall foul of the referee and looks an appealing pick at 2/1.
