Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are clashing at Allianz Arena in the Der Klassiker of German Bundesliga. Bayern Munich is at the top of the table, and they are only 1 win away from winning another title. Borussia is in second place, they are playing well right now, but I think the season is over and they will remain in that second place.
Bayern is now on a 4-game winning streak in Bundesliga, but the two games they haven’t won have cost them a spot in the Champions League semifinals. As I’ve mentioned, Bayern is only 1 win away from the title, and I think they will get it, if not here then next weekend. Bayern is also getting close to scoring 100 goals in a season, and they now have 89 goals. Of those 89 goals, Lewandowski has scored 32 goals for Bayern, while Gnabry has added 12 goals. Thomas Muller has added 17 assists. The injury list has shrunk for Bayern, but too bad it’s too late for the Champions League. I’m sure Bayern is happy to win another Bundesliga title, but they have won so many of those that it barely has any value anymore. The Champions League was Bayern’s goal this season, but maybe they will have more luck next season.
Borussia Dortmund is now on a 2-game winning streak during which they have scored 8 goals, while they have conceded only 1 goal. Borussia will remain in this 2nd place, they have had their ups and downs this season, but ultimately, 2nd place is what they deserved. Dortmund has scored 76 goals so far this season, and Haaland is their leading goalscorer with 18 goals and 8 assists. Reus has added 9 goals and 9 assists. The injury list is incredibly long for Borussia Dortmund, and I really hope that won’t have too big of an impact on their game in this match. Haaland will be leading Borussia Dortmund at the end of this season, but it’s still unknown where he will go. The defense was the biggest issue for Borussia this season and the fact that Haaland was injured a few times which reduced their offensive firepower. We know Borussia is already working on signing a couple of defenders, and maybe then they can be a bigger competition to Bayern.
This is the biggest matchup in Germany, and they are always fun. We usually see a lot of goals in this matchup, and I think we will see them here as well.
