The most anticipated clash in the Bundesliga sees Borussia Dortmund host Champions Bayern Munich at the Signal Iduna Park on 7th November 2020
Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich would be heading into this heavyweight clash level on points, with only goal difference separating the two sides.
BVB boast a perfect home record this season with three wins out of three and are yet to concede a goal at home.
Bayern on the other hand is in blistering form scoring goals at will both in the Bundesliga and the Champions League. They have scored 24 goals in just 6 games in the Bundesliga this season.
Last time out:
This would be the second meeting between the two sides this season, the first was a thrilling German Super Cup in which Bayern edged Dortmund 3-2.
German International and former Bayern defender Matt Hummels are likely to miss this game with a muscle injury.
Jadon Sancho was rested for their midweek Champions League game against Club Brugge, and he would be expected to get into the starting XI for this game.
The other absentees include Emre Can, Marcel Schmelzer and Dan-Axel Zagadou.
The German & European Champions will be without their first choice centre back Niklas Sule and left back, Alphonso Davies for this game.
However, the depth and quality of Bayern’s squad is such, having versatile players like Joshua Kimmich, David Alaba, and Javi Martinez who can play in multiple positions.
