Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund predictions and betting tips for Saturday’s Der Klassiker on April 6th with an anytime goalscorer tip and goals prediction included.
Der Klassiker is always a thrill-a-minute, but this latest installment could have major ramifications in the title race. Serge Gnabry has labelled it as ‘the biggest game of the season’, and after the pair shared five goals earlier in the campaign, this could be a sensational watch for the neutrals. Dortmund have a two point advantage going into this tie, and they will be hoping to maintain equilibrium at the summiut. See our Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund predictions below.
Bayern are hunting for a seventh successive title this season, but it’s been far from a stroll so far. Borussia Dortmund have made it tough for Niko Kovac’s men, and they are currently two points ahead of their rivals coming into this fixture. BVB haven’t been convincing in recent weeks, and the injuries are starting to stack up with Achraf Hakimi the latest player set for a spell on the sidelines. It is far from ideal for Lucien Favre, but his side are extremely dangerous going forward, and they have Paco Alcacer back amongst the goals. Bayern have made up a nine-point deficit in 2019, but they slipped up away from home last weekend, and they cannot afford to drop any points here. Bayern have been slightly pre-occupied this week by their antics in the DFB Pokal, in which they squeezed past second-tier outfit Heidenheim 5-4. It was an absolute thriller, with Robert Lewandowski coming off the bench to snatch the winner, but they will need to recover quickly from that tie in order to be ready for this 5:30pm kick off. Bayern start the day as 8/15 favourites, and considering that they’ve stuck six past both Wolfsburg and Mainz at the Allianz recently, they will be confident of a victory here. However, Dortmund will consistently be a threat down the other end, and they will have the likes of Jadon Sancho and Marco Reus scheming away throughout the 90 minutes. Dortmund haven’t lost by more than a one goal margin on the road all season, and although relatively short, 6/10 for Dortmund +2 on the handicap looks tempting. It is the first of our Bundesliga betting tips for Saturday.
The 100th Klassiker has been set up nicely, and it should be a battle of epic proportions. Dortmund are dangerous throughout the 90 minutes, but their penchant for scoring late goals has helped them rescue many points this season. Bayern have a decent record here against the yellow and blacks, and they’ve put ten past BVB during their last two visits to this ground. Bayern showed defensive vulnerabilities in midweek, and Dortmund could explore those gaps in the Bavarian’s defence. There have been twenty goals in the last four meetings between this pair, and with so much at stake, we’re expecting a similarly high-scoring affair. This should be a fascinating watch, and although it clashes with the Grand National and the FA Cup semi-final, I can imagine many neutrals opting for this one instead. Over 3.5 Goals is the second of our Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund predictions for Saturday night.
It hasn’t been the most prolific season for James Rodriguez, but he’s been getting a run in the team recently, and he’s been back amongst the goals too. As well as scoring, he’s chalked up a number of assists, including a terrific defence splitting ball for Serge Gnabry against Wolfsburg. He is handy from a set-piece situation, and he’s clearly playing with plenty of confidence at this moment in time. He hadn’t found the net since October 20th, before scoring four times in his last two home games, and he could be a threat once again here. He is a streaky player, who tends to score in runs, and he could strike again here. Robert Lewandowski has a terrific record against BVB, whilst Paco Alcacer was back amongst the goals last weekend, but the star of the 2014 World Cup is a bigger price than the pair of them, and looks very backable. He is the third of our Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund predictions at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern have dominated this tie at the Allianz in recent years, and they can be backed at 8/15 to collect three points once again here. It’s 15/4 for the tie to end all-square, whilst Dortmund are 17/4 to lay down their title credentials here.
The bookies are expecting another high-scoring tie here, and who can blame them? It’s 4/9 for Over 2.5 Goals in this game, whilst it’s 11/10 for Over 3.5 Goals to land again. It was 3-2 when these sides met earlier in the campaign, and it’s 5/2 for Over 4.5 Goals in this one.
Robert Lewandowski came off the bench to send Bayern through to the next round of the DFB Pokal, but he is likely to be reinstated to the XI for this game, and he’s 21/10 to score the opening goal here. Thomas Muller was also on the score-sheet on Tuesday, and he is 5/1 to net the opener here. Serge Gnabry has been in decent form, and he’s 15/2 to break the deadlock whilst it’s 13/2 for both Paco Alcacer and Marco Reus to grab the first goal of this crucial contest.
