Bayern München vs Borussia Dortmund: Preview & Prediction
It is less than 3 weeks since the teams finally met on their own course, and Bayern won quite convincingly with 4-1.
With the exit in CL and a championship that can hardly be lost, Bayern can focus fully on the cup and victory here.
Dortmund may be defensively weakened with injuries to Bartra and Nuri Sahin, while Sokratis is doubtful of an injury.
Dortmund has some important and not very easy matches back in the league that cost a focus as they are threatened at their direct place in the CL group game.
At the injury front, it is apparent to Bayern that ift this weekend seems to have both Javi Martinez and Jerome Boateng ready – even Alaba seems ready.
Bayern is strong on own grass where they lost only 2 matches in all tournaments in the last 2 years (to Real Madrid and Mainz).
Bayern has had a difficult April month, where they have only won 1 victory (against Dortmund) in 6 tries and at the same time smoked out of the Champions League.
With the injury to Manuel Neuer, Bayern must be defended defensively despite the fact that other defensive players may be back.
In comparison to the mutual match earlier this month, Dortmund has players like Reus, Weigl, Kagawa and Durm again, which is a strengthening.
Dortmund has previously coached Bayern on a field away in the trophy, where they in the last two seasons have ended for extended play time (they won one time).
Dortmund has a couple of good wins in the league above 1-4 defeat to Bayern, and in the weekend they turned 1-2 to 3-2 against Gladbach.
