In the upcoming fixture of the Bundesliga, league leaders Bayern Munich is hosting 3rd placed Borussia Dortmund for three match points. Bayern Munich has been in great form for the last few seasons and they are already ahead of others in the chase for another league title. Borussia Dortmund wouldn’t let it easy for the hosts because it is about honour and they are the only team who are most eligible to compete with Bayern in their home ground without any fear. However, the hosts had a terrible luck before heading for the international break when they lost RasenBallsport Leipzig by 2-1 and they would try to recover for that but for the guests, they had six straight matches without any defeat and they would like to continue their winning form in this game as well. Moreover, if Borussia Dortmund can Bayern Munich their fourth defeat of the season then they would really concrete their position on the top 4 which means they would get a UEFA Champions League berth next season.

Our bet is on Bayern Munich for this game because they would come to this game with 35 home matches undefeated in Bundesliga and they are expected to get a fair challenge from a team that are also having a 12 matches undefeated streak. However, Bayern Munich would try to recover from their last league match which they lost RB Leipzig and would come to this game at full throttle and for Dortmund that would be something to be very careful of.
