Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund tips – German champions hot favourites

Bayern Munich haven’t always had things their own way this season and it remains to be seen whether the Bavarian outfit can retain their Champions League crown although they have their noses in front at the top of the German Bundesliga and are now strong favourites to be domestic champions once again.

Hansi Flick’s side have fifty-two points from twenty-three Premier League matches and that gives them a two-point advantage over second-placed RB Leipzig with a superior goal difference and Bayern will now look to stay clear by winning this Klassiker clash at the Allianz Arena.

Are Bayern Munich Betting Bankers Against Borussia?

Bayern Munich might have been successful in the FIFA Club World Cup but that campaign actually hindered their Bundesliga title defence, with Hansi Flick’s side coming back to Germany and drawing with Arminia Bielefeld before losing away to Eintracht Frankfurt.

However, a 4-1 win at Lazio in the Champions League was followed by a 5-1 demolition of FC Koln and this success was achieved without Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller and Kingsley Coman in the starting line-up and this is a point in the season where Bayern can leverage their squad depth.

If you compare the leading German football betting sites, you can get betting odds of 4/6 about Bayern winning the game against their historical rivals, with the team now having a full week to prepare for this important clash.

Can Haaland Star for Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker?

Borussia Dortmund are also back in recent form, with a Champions League victory at Sevilla kick-starting something of a revival which has seen them demolish Schalke and Arminia Bielefeld by a combined aggregate score of 7-0 in the past two matches and there’s a particular young striker who is making headlines.

Erling Braut Haaland has scored thirty-three goals in all competitions and the Norwegian will be excited to clash against a team whom he scored against in the reverse fixture although that particular fixture ended in a 3-2 victory for Bayern and it will be interesting to see whether Dortmund can tame their opponents here.

Dortmund are scrapping away to land a top four spot this season after hitting a few bumps in the road earlier this term, with it being noticeable that the yellows are involved in lots of high-scoring games.

What Are the Best Bets for Bayern v Dortmund?

Borussia Dortmund have managed to score an impressive forty-eight goals this season but also concede thirty-one, so it’s hard to see anything other than a high-scoring clash considering that Bayern Munich have scored sixty-seven times but also conceded as many as thirty-two goals.

We should also largely ignore the fact that Bayern have home advantage considering no supporters can attend these matches, although there are lots of ways we can approach this match and hopefully extract some value from the German football betting markets.

There seems little point in backing Bayern considering there are several other options and Over 3.5 Goals is available at 17/20 when you compare the Bundesliga betting odds, with four or more being scored regularly when it comes to Der Klassiker matches.

Many punters will also be eager to get hold of 15/8 that there are Over 4.5 Goals and we should hark back on the fact that the reverse fixture ended in a 3-2 victory to Bayern and that both sides are in positive scoring form as they look to try and win this game.

Should you feel as though Bayern Munich will have too much strength, then you can back Flick’s team at betting odds of 6/4 to win the game and both teams to find the net. Alternatively, the home team are as big as 15/8 to win the game and for there to be Over 3.5 Goals.
