The BAY vs DOR Match Preview
For the first time in ages, Bayern Munich visit the Signal Iduna Park to take on rivals Borussia Dortmund as the lower ranked side on Saturday, 10 November 2018.
Bayern Munich have yet again shook the world with their performance, but this time for all the negative reasons. In a season that has witnessed footballing powerhouses succumb to some unusual upsets, Bayern find themselves lurking to get back on track. Their opponents next up are the undefeated table toppers and age old rivals, Borussia Dortmund, a victory against whom will all but end Bayern’s woes in Bundesliga.
Borussia Dortmund are sitting at the top of the table with 24 points of the maximum 30 available. Their attack has been sensational and has left defences short of answers to them. The defeat to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League will be playing in the back of their mind though, as they take on the obvious title challengers tomorrow. A defeat too won’t hamper their position in the points table but a win or even a draw will put them miles ahead of the following lot.
