Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund
When Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are playing against each other, the whole Germany is watching. This will be the case on Saturday, when the Bundesliga classic will happen again. Let’s talk about it in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
For Bayern Munich this match comes in a difficult moment, because few days ago the club sacked the manager Niko Kovac. This happened after the champions’ humilating 1-5 defeat against Kovac’ former team Eintracht Frankfurt. The club’s bosses decided that it’s time for a change, so the Croatian tactician said goodbye to the Allianz Arena.
During the week the caretaker Hans Dieter Flick debuted with a win, leading his team to a 2-0 win over Olympiakos in the Champions League. Both goals were scored in the last 20 minutes, when Robert Lewandowski and Ivan Perisic did the job. Kingsley Coman helped with an assist.
For this game Dieter Flick took one interesting decision. He decided to leave Phillippe Coutinho on the bench, but probably it was a part of a bigger plan. Most likely he will use the Brazilian with fresh legs in the derby on Saturday.
Borussia Dortmund are in a run of three consecutive wins in all competitions right now. On Tuesday Die Borussen made an amazing performance against Inter Milan in the Champions League, surviving a 0-2 deficit and winning it with 3-2. Achraf Hakimi shined with a brace for Dortmund, while Julian Brandt also scored in Samir Handanovic’ net.
In the Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund are currently ahead of the champions. Right now they are second in the standings with 19 points – one more than Bayern, who are fourth.
