Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund’s top matches have always been of great importance and have caught the spotlight in all German Bundesliga matches.
But facing the two teams, scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, in the 28th stage of the competition, is expected to receive more attention than usual due to its establishment in various circumstances, as it will greatly determine the features of competition for the title this season.
Dortmund is playing tomorrow’s game at home, missing one of its most prominent weapons, the mass support, where the matches have been held without an audience since the resumption of competitions on the 16th of this month after a two-month hiatus due to the Coronavirus epidemic.
Dortmund are second in the league, four points behind champions Bayern Munich and Dortmund is looking to win to reduce the difference to one point and vigorously enter the title struggle this season.
As for the tie, Bayern Munich will remain as a favorite for the title, while in the event of winning, the champion of the last season will be around the corner for the title for the eighth consecutive season, as he will surpass Dortmund by seven points, just six stages before the end of the competition.
“We certainly appreciate Bayern very much, but I personally look forward to this match and we are enjoying really good levels,” said Borussia Dortmund midfielder Thomas Delaney.
Borussia Dortmund scored 9 wins in the last ten games, during which he scored 27 points, to be the second-best start to the team in the second half of the season, as he had scored 28 points at the beginning of the second half of the 2011-2012 season when he won the title, eight points behind Bayern Munich.
In the last summit matches, the “Black Festival” achieved only two victories in 11 games against the Bavarian team, but Dortmund may derive confidence that the two victories came in the last two games in “Signal Idona Park”, the stronghold of “locust”, in the league and the Super Cup in 2018 And 2019, respectively.
The matches were held without a crowd because of Corona, depriving the team of the landowner of an advantage he enjoyed among his fans.
It is noteworthy that only three of the 18 games that took place since the resumption of the German League competitions on the 16th of this month ended with the victory of the landowners, including the “Derby Ruhr”, which ended with Dortmund’s victory over Schalke 4-0.
“We are moving forward, as are Dortmund,” Bayern’s Thomas Muller said after his team’s match against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. “We have reasons to look forward to Tuesday’s game. We want the title to remain in Munich.”
Bayern coach Hanzi Flick was more cautious in his ambition, and said, “Nothing will be decided, whatever the outcome (of the match).”
