Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich: Bundesliga – Match Preview

The Bundesliga’s top two go head to head on Tuesday evening as Borussia Dortmund look to cut the four point deficit to leaders Bayern Munich.

Borussia Dortmund have won both matches since the return of the Bundesliga, including a 2-0 away victory at Wolfsburg on Saturday.

Jadon Sancho was again among the substitutes, however goals from both wing-backs, Raphael Guerreiro and Achraf Hakimi secured a comfortable win.

The victory temporarily closed the gap to a point; however Bayern Munich eased to a 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt later that day.

Thomas Muller and rising star Alphonso Davies both assisted one and scored one as the champions ran riot.

Team news
Sancho is expected to come into the XI here, with either Julian Brandt or Thorgan Hazard dropping out.

Mats Hummels was forced off versus Wolfsburg on the weekend, however should be fit to face his former employers.

Jerome Boateng was another who suffered an injury on Saturday, but the Bayern defender is likely to be fine.

Thiago and Serge Gnabry didn’t start against Frankfurt due to small issues and both are doubts.

Borussia Dortmund (3-4-2-1): Burki; Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji; Hakimi, Dahoud, Can, Guerreiro; Sancho, Brandt; Haaland
Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Alaba, Boateng, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Coman, Muller, Perisic; Lewandowski
