Where: Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund, GermanyWhen: Saturday, November 4, 6:30 pm CET
Der Klassiker is the biggest game in German football. Everyone loves to watch when two former European champions meet, especially at the Signal Iduna Park, one of the European football sanctuaries. Borussia is playing solid football these days, and the Millionaires would love to defeat their big rivals. On the other side, the Bavarians have been consistent lately, posting excellent results and sending clear messages to their opponents.
Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich Preview
The Millionaires have a golden opportunity to make themselves a true title contender if they beat Bayern this weekend. Edin Terzic’s crew defeated Newcastle on the road in the Champions League, but after that, they slipped in Frankfurt, playing 3-3 vs. Eintracht.
With a win over Bayern, Borussia will not only receive a significant boost but also, put the pressure on other teams in Bundesliga, waiting for their response.
The Millionaires haven’t lost in the past seven events, winning five times and posting two draws. We need to say that even though these results seem fine, Borussia does struggle in certain situations and fails to deliver consistent performances.
Bayern and Darmstadt played 45 minutes without a single goal, before seeing eight in the second half. All in Darmstadt’s net. It was the fifth victory in a row for the German champs, and during that span, we’ve seen them net 21 times.
They have only one loss this year, against RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup, when they suffered a humiliating 0-3 defeat. After that, they went on to stay unbeaten in 13 straight events, winning in 11 of them.
Bayern’s chemistry is significantly better now than several months ago, and we must add that Harry Kane looks perfect for this unit. The Englishman is equally efficient as Lewandowski and also has much better playmaking abilities.

All this guarantees goals, and our pick here is both teams to score and over 2.5 hits. The odds on that are low, but the risk is as well.
Our verdict: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals
