Stay tuned as we bring you the preview and predictions for this game.

Recap of the Most Recent Der Klassiker

The most recent game between these teams was a classic one as Dortmund staged a massive comeback to earn a point, ending 2-2. Dortmund has been struggling against Bayern Munich recently, as they were on an eight-game losing streak against the Bavarians. What was supposed to be a routine win for the Bavarians turned sour in no time as Anthony Modeste inspired Dortmund’s comeback.;

  • Bayern’s Midfielder Leon Goretzka scored the game’s first goal on Bayern’s first opportunity with a low effort through a crowded box. Bayern took the 1-0 lead to the second half, where Leroy Sane added another one in the 53rd minute to make it a two-goal advantage for the Bavarians.
  • All seemed to be lost for Dortmund until Youssoufa Moukoko, a 17-year-old forward for Dortmund, changed the course of the match when he latched on to a ball from Modeste and beat goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to score the youngest goal in Der Klassiker history.
  • Modeste, who set up Dortmund’s first goal, later headed in the equalizer in the 83rd minute to ensure the points were shared.

Bayern Munich’s Latest News

Bayern Munich has made the headlines, especially during the international break, for a shocking reason: the sacking of their head coach Julian Nagelsmann. Nagelsmann was doing a pretty decent job in Bayern, especially in his second season, where he has a 100% record in the Champions League so far and is second in the Bundesliga, one point behind league leaders Borussia Dortmund.

However, things have been perceived differently by the hierarchy of Bayern Munich, who opted to release the German coach to acquire the services of former Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel.

  • Thomas Tuchel, also Dortmund’s former coach, has now found himself on the other side of the rivalry with Bayern Munich. His return to a managerial position has come over six months since what was perceived as his unjust sacking from Chelsea.
  • The new Bayern head coach’s first game will be against his former side Borussia Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund’s Latest News

Dortmund might be on a last-gasp attempt to keep one of the talents they nurtured finally. Borussia Dortmund has been seen as a talent pool by other European clubs as the great scouting in the club has led to the discovery of numerous talented footballers. Every year, a new rising star seems to be discovered in Borussia Dortmund. Jude Bellingham is the man in question here, and he has been key to Dortmund’s impressive campaign in the league this season. Losing him will have a significant impact on the Bundesliga side.

  • Ahead of the summer transfer window, the 19-year-old is one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe. Liverpool has been perceived as the forerunner in the race for the English man’s signature, but Manchester City, Manchester United, and Chelsea have also shown interest.
  • Dortmund reportedly has a strategy to keep him with the team, which involves giving him a 150% pay raise worth up to £13 million annually. Should He decide to commit his future to the team, this will make him the highest-paid player in Dortmund’s history, and his proposed new contract would include a £131 million release clause.
