Bayern Munich (LWWWW)
Bayern Munich had been in good form until their unexpected defeat against Bayern Leverkusen in their last game. Before that defeat, they were on a run of 4 wins in a row but failed to continue that run when they lost 2-1 to Bayer Leverkusen. By that defeat, they slipped down to 2nd place on the table, but 1 point behind new leaders Borussia Dortmund.
Against Leverkusen, Joshua Kimmich was first to score inside the opening 22 minutes of the game. But in the second half, the hosts were awarded spot kicks in the 55th and 73rd minute and Exequiel Palacios scored both kicks and Bayern Munich couldn't get back into the game until the end of the game. As expected, Bayern Munich were dominant, taking 60% possession, 6 shots on target and 3 corner kicks.

Borussia Dortmund (WDLWW)
Dortmund were handed a gift after the shock exit from the UEFA champions league against Chelsea on aggregate. They salvaged Bayern Munich's loss to Leverkusen to climb up to 1st spot on the table. And now they face a tough test here against the biggest team in the league and they will hope to win all 3 points against them in order to retain their position. Borussia Dortmund trashed FC Koln 6-1 in their last match. Clearly, their intentions are well noted. Raphael Guerreiro, Sebastian Haller, Marco Reus and Donyell Malen all scored in the first half of the match. And in the second half, Marco Reus and Sebastian Haller both grabbed a brace to total the goals to 6. Dortmund didn't give the opposition a chance as they dominated possession by 64% and had 8 shots on target by the end of 90 minutes.

Expert Betting Tips
Bayern Munich made the headlines with the sacking of their former manager and employment of Tomas Tuchel. Many were left in shock but it was evident that Bayern Munich have been far from their best this season and with their Champions League hunt much alive, they needed the services of a proven winner. Now, all eyes will be on new manager Tomas Tuchel who takes the reins for the first time. He has had limited time with his squad who were on international duty during his appointment. There is concern that he intends to set up his team, will he cause a radical change or instil his ideas gradually? Either way it's a match that he doesn't want to lose and I think the experience of the Bayern Munich team will give them the edge here.
