Dortmund v Bayern betting tips

There is no bigger game in German football than clashes between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, with these two teams dominating the German Bundesliga landscape over the past decade and the latter are currently building out a legacy in this country which also included a Champions League triumph last season.

Indeed, the Bavarian side can lay claim to being the best side in Europe right now and they’ve been looking pretty fearsome since the 2020/21 campaign began, with Bayern having a +15 goal difference despite the fact that they were chinned 4-1 by Hoffenheim in the early rounds.

Can We Trust Bayern to Win at Odds-On?

Bayern Munich have become the punters’ friend since Hansi Flick has taken charge of the team. Betting customers regularly load the German champions into their accumulator bet and they’re rarely let down, with Flick having really got a tune out of a talented squad of players as was seen last term when they came back after lockdown to conquer the Bundesliga and Champions League.

Bayern began the season with an enormous 8-0 victory over Schalke although this was followed by an inexplicable reverse at the hands of Hoffenheim which really caught the German powerhouse short, although they did get the better of Dortmund in the German Super Cup and that kickstarted a winning run which has continued ever since.

The visitors have won their past eight matches in all competitions going into a Champions League clash in Salzburg which isn’t of great important considering they are already in the driving seat, with Robert Lewandowski having already racked up twelve goals for the campaign and the Pole is sure to be lining up against his former club.

Are Dortmund Worth a Bet to Pull Off an Upset?

Borussia Dortmund had a chance to open up the Bundesliga title race after lockdown when they clashed with Bayern Munich although they were comfortably nullified by their opponents when losing 1-0 and it will once again be difficult for Lucien Favre’s side considering that they don’t have that fantastic wall of noise at Signal Iduna Park.

Even so, there are some positives for the home side considering that they also have fifteen points on the board from six games played, with the only blip being an early reverse away to Augsburg although the rest of the games have been won and it’s been noticeable that the defence has been keeping a number of clean sheets this term.

At the time of writing, Dortmund have won five of their past six matches in all competitions and all of the victories were achieved without conceding a goal, with Mats Hummels not only excelling in the central defensive position but also popping up with some important goals including a brace away to Arminia.

What Are the Best Bets for This Match?

Cast your mind back to the clash between these two German super clubs when they met in the Super Cup, with Corentin Tolisso and Thomas Muller sending Bayern into a 2-0 lead before goals from Erling Haaland and Julian Brandt helped to level the scoreline before Joshua Kimmich popped up with a winning goal.

Bayern are a team who get the job done when it really matters and the fact that home advantage is effectively eroded without a crowd means that they are probably a good bet if you’re able to secure close to even money about them winning.

However, we feel as though Dortmund will want to leave everything out on the pitch this time around and we like the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score betting market, so perhaps the best way forward is to back the win for the visitors and BTTS.
