Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are level on points at the top of the Bundesliga table and both enjoyed easy Champions League wins in midweek.
However, FC Hollywood did the double over their big rivals in Germany’s top flight last term and this match still has a feel of men against boys.
We’re going with 23/20 for an away victory and over 2.5 goals in the game as our first Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich prediction.
A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds
Dortmund suffered some early setbacks this season, losing 2-0 at Augsburg, 3-2 to Bayern in the German Super Cup and 3-1 at Lazio in the Champions League.
Lucien Favre’s side have since found their feet and head into this contest on a four-match winning run.
Schalke and Arminia were beaten in the Bundesliga, while Zenit and Club Brugge have been brushed aside in Europe.
Exciting young Norway striker Erling Haaland made it 16 goals in 15 appearances for club and country with a double in Belgium on Wednesday.
Thorgan Hazard also netted in midweek and said: “We showed that we have a good group. Everybody can play.”
However, Borussia have had a habit before of overpowering weaker teams but then just falling short when facing elite-level outfits.
They have lost six of the last seven renewals of Der Klassiker when Bundesliga points have been up for grabs and are still rated pretenders, rather than contenders, to Bayern’s throne.
Looking at the Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich odds, we like 13/4 for the visitors to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market.
A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds
Bayern suffered a blip when hammered 4-1 at Hoffenheim towards the end of September but last season’s treble winners have won nine subsequent matches in all competitions.
The highlights have been a 4-0 drubbing of Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and Tuesday’s 6-2 romp when visiting RB Salzburg.
Robert Lewandowski’s brace in Austria made it 14 goals in 12 games for FC Hollywood and Poland this term, so the 32-year-old is still as lethal as ever.
If anything, his supporting cast have grown in stature since wrapping up an eighth straight Bundesliga title by a whopping 13 points and then claiming Champions League glory.
Joshua Kimmich and Serge Gnabry are fast approaching superstar status, while former Manchester City starlet Leroy Sane is starting to show why he was so stubbornly pursued.
Injuries to Alphonso Davies, Niklas Sule and Leon Goretzka do make Bayern more vulnerable at the back, plus a much-publicised contract dispute involving David Alaba is an unwelcome distraction.
All that nonsense will be put to one side for this crucial contest, though, and Hansi Flick’s side are fancied to show they are still a level above Die Borussen.
Kimmich scored the deciding goal in Der Klassiker at this venue last term and struck in September’s Super Cup success, so 6/1 for him to net at any time again is our final Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich prediction.
Club Brugge 0-3 BORUSSIA DORTMUND – Thorgan Hazard, Erling Haaland (2)
RB Salzburg 2-6 BAYERN MUNICH – Robert Lewandowski (2), Rasmus Kristensen (og), Jerome Boateng, Leroy Sane, Lucas Hernandez
Head-to-head: Munich 3-2 Dortmund, Dortmund 0-1 Munich, Munich 4-0 Dortmund, Dortmund 2-0 Munich
