Saturday welcomes us with the first ‘Der Klassiker’ for the season. Currently, Borussia Dortmund stand on the first place and have a comfortable lead of four points in front of Bayern Munich. On Tuesday, Atletico Madrid beat BVB in the Champions League and ended the German’s perfect start of the season. Lucien Favre’s side is the only team in the Bundesliga without a loss since the start of the season and lead on total goals scored.
Bayern Munich had a perfect start of the season and beat Eintracht Frankfurt 5:0 for the German Super Cup trophy. However, after seven consecutive wins, the Bavarians recorded four games without a victory. Many raised concerns if Niko Kovac is the perfect man to lead the German giants, but the Croatian proved them wrong. Throughout October, Bayern Munich players showed glimpses of their best and returned on the winning ways.
I will avoid betting on the winner in ‘Der Klassiker’. Both teams are in great form and anything can happen. Instead, I will back Over 3.5 Cards, with Bayern Munich 2:1 Correct Score.
