Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund | 19 Nov 11
Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich
Kick Off: 18.30 Germany time
The big, bad, bold letter above should tell you how bad ass this match going to be. This match preview is all about that badassness. This fixture is not less than any battle. The battle of forwards, the battle of midfield, the battle of defence and even the battle of goalkeepers. The battle between the league leaders (Bayern Munich) and the current champions (Borussia Dortmund) who are in the second position but 5 points behind Bayern Munich. And the battle between Jupp Heynckes and Jurgen Klopp.
Actually on points there are other clubs on the same level with Dortmund. Both Werder Bremen and Monchengladbach have got 23 points, equal to Dortmund, but Dortmund are ahead on goal difference.
Bundesliga as a league is perhaps the most thrilling one in terms of the Football at display and a match of this calibre is certain to be explosive. Borussia Dortmund are certainly in explosive form as they have scored 11 goals in their last 3 matches which includes 2 wins against FC Koln and Wolfsburg, scoring 5 goals in each match. The third match being a 1-1 draw against Stuttgart.
Bayern Munich has been impressive from the start of the season with only 1 loss and 1 drawn match. Frank Ribery has been as been at his best and Mario Gomez has had a start which is only matched by the legendary Gerd Muller. Defence too has been solid with Holger Badstuber with Van Buyten and Lahm have been miserly to leak goals. Manuel Neuer has also kept clean sheets at will.
Two names crop when thinking about Borussia Dortmund, namely Mario Gotze & Robert Lewandowski. Awesome players doing awesome things this season. Together they have scored 12 goals till now this season and are going for glory big time. And with Mats Hummels being the Iron Man at the back, Borussia Dortmund are putting their best foot forward again this season.
