Borussia Dortmund is hosting Bayern Munich at Signal Iduna Park in the Der Klassiker derby in round 7 in the German Bundesliga.
Borussia is playing just lights out soccer at the moment, and they are on a 4-game winning streak during which they have conceded a goal while scoring 10 goals. Borussia was playing against Club Brugge in the Champions League earlier this week, and they have won that game 0-3 with 3 scored goals in the first half. In the Bundesliga, Borussia is in 2nd place with 15 points, 12 scored goals, and only 2 conceded goals, the same amount of points as Bayern at the top. Borussia is doing something they have been missing for years, and that is playing good, solid defense while also keeping their offense on a high level. In their last Bundesliga game, Borussia was playing against Arminia on the road, and they were dominant throughout the entire game with 75% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 12 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. Borussia has won this game 0-2 with 2 scored goals in the second half. Haaland has scored 5 goals for Borussia so far, and he is playing better with every game. Hummels has added 3 goals. Sancho has 4 assists, while Reyna added 3 assists, and Haaland has 2 assists. Schmelzer, Zagadou, and Can are injured, and they will miss this game. I have said this last season as well, but I think this is finally Borussia’s year, and I think they can take the title from Bayern.
Bayern is still not stopping, and they have now won their last 9 games in a row. During this streak, Bayern has scored 33 goals, which is an average of over 3 scored goals per game, while conceding 10 goals. Bayern is at the top of Bundesliga with 15 points, the same amount as Borussia in second place, but Bayern has conceded 9 goals in 6 games while scoring 24 goals. Earlier this week Bayern was playing against Red Bull Salzburg on the road, and after losing 1-0, Bayern switched gears, and they ended up winning this match 2-6. In their last Bundesliga game, Bayern was playing against Koln on the road, and they have had 63% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 1 big chance created, and 86% of the correct passes. Bayern has won this match 1-2, but it was a tight game because Koln has created a lot of good chances. Lewandowski is back to being his old self, and he has scored 10 goals for Bayern this season already. Gnabry and Muller have added 4 goals each. Kimmich, Lewandowski, and Muller each have 3 assists. Kouassi, Davies, and Sule are all injured, and they will miss this game. Bayern has a lot of depth, but they are focused on the offense, which leaves them vulnerable to the counter-attacks, and we can see that is working against them because they conceded so many goals this season.
I think this will be a treat. Both teams are playing in fantastic form, and both teams are scoring a ton of goals. Borussia has won all of their home games this season, and I think they might borrow a play from Hoffenheim’s playbook for this game. I expect Borussia to leave the possession to Bayern, and then to exploit the space behind Bayern’s midfield and defense with fast passes and precise long balls. I will side with Borussia in this game because I think they can finally take Bayern down.
