Managerless Bayern Munich received a confidence boost in the Champions League in midweek and have a great record against Borussia Dortmund at Allianz Arena.
The visitors also prevailed in Europe and are in decent form, but a run of five straight Bundesliga defeats at this venue is hard to ignore, especially by an aggregate score of 22-3.
Interim boss Hansi Flick does have injury problems at the back to contend with, but that just makes 3/2 for a home win and both teams to score appeal as a Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund prediction.
A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds
Nico Kovac was axed after last weekend’s embarrassing 5-1 loss at Eintracht Frankfurt and Arsene Wenger has been backed to succeed him in the Bayern Munich next manager odds.
However, Flick did a good job of steadying the ship when Robert Lewandowski and Ivan Perisic scored second-half goals in a 2-0 triumph over Olympiakos.
The German giants dominated that Group B encounter and would have won by a big margin but for the exploits of visiting keeper Jose Sa.
Flick told the club website: “I enjoyed it because the team displayed the quality they have. We can be very satisfied with the match.
“The team did a good job and earned their reward. We allowed them few chances and our positioning was good.
“We put our opponents under pressure again and again. We made too many wrong decisions in the first half in front of goal, but we did better after the break.”
Being without the injured Niklas Sule and Lucas Hernandez, plus the suspended Jerome Boateng, is an obvious concern, but the key men in midfield and up front are all firing.
Looking at the Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund odds, we like 3/1 for the hosts to oblige 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1.
A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds
Dortmund are a point above Bayern in second place behind Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach following last Saturday’s 3-0 drubbing of Wolfsburg.
Lucien Favre’s side followed that up with a thrilling Champions League win over Inter Milan, coming from 2-0 down to prevail 3-2.
Impressive loan star Achraf Hakimi netted either side of Julian Brandt’s leveller to send the Signal Iduna Park faithful wild.
“We have played a very attacking game and pressed better after the break to avoid counter-attacks,” said Favre. “It was a crazy game with lots of pace – great to watch.”
Favre has been noticeably more animated on the touchline this term and his players are responding well, but we still can’t forget or forgive their poor record at this venue, going down 5-0 here in April and 6-0 the previous season.
The evergreen Lewandowski scored five times in those fixtures and 5/2 for him to break the deadlock this weekend completes our Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund betting tips.
