Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich: Bundesliga – live | Bundesliga
So last weekend was about Jude Bellingham when it comes to Englishmen abroad. Boy, was he special, scoring a brace to win the clásico, the first of those an outrageous thumper from range. Now it’s time to see what Harry Kane’s got up his sleeve.
John Brewin’s on clockwatch duty if you want to have a quick look at the 3pm kickoffs.
Here’s Jonathan Liew’s excellent preview:
So Upamecano and Goretzka, who were injury concerns for Bayern, are in the XI. Here’s how it’s looking:
Dortmund: Kobel, Ryerson, Schlotterbeck, Hummels, Wolf, Özcan, Sabitzer, Reus, Brandt, Malen, Füllkrug
Subs: Meyer, Bensebaini, Reyna, Nmecha, Haller, Moukoko, Süle, Adeyemi, Bynoe-Gittens
Bayern: Neuer, Mazraoui, Upamecano, Min-jae, Davies, Goretzka, Laimer, Sané, Coman, Musiala, Kane
Subs: Ulreich, Gnabry, Choupo-Moting, Sarr, Müller, Tel, Krätzig, Pavlović
The teams are in:
Hello, hello, hello and welcome to coverage of the big one in Germany: Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich at Signal Iduna Park.
The eyes are on Harry Kane, who seems to be loving life at his new club. Thirteen games have resulted in 14 goals, including his best Becks impression in an 8-0 drubbing last weekend. Bayern remain unbeaten in the league, have a 100% record in the Champions League and Kane’s at the helm for their run at a 12th consecutive Bundesliga title. Oh, and they haven’t lost to these since 2019.
But – yes, there’s a but – Dortmund are very much in this. They too are unbeaten after nine league games, and they’ll be buoyed by the upset Bayern suffered in the week, a 2-1 loss to third-division Saarbrücken in the German Cup. Then there are the names Bayern are missing: Joshua Kimmich is suspended, Matthijs de Ligt is definitely out with injury, and there are concerns over Dayot Upamecano and Leon Goetzka, too. Basically, we’re on for a classic (don’t hold me to that).
I’ll be here with you all the way, with kick-off at 5.30pm GMT. Drop me a line with your thoughts, queries, whatever, whenever. Cheers!
