News
With Dortmund amassing a 10 point lead at the top of the table and a 13 point lead over München, Bayern will have it all to prove the they have what it takes to mount a late challenge to Dortmund. However, Dortmund have lost some of their rhythm that they had developed before Christmas, evident in their form. Dortmund boast the best goal difference in the league, and arguably the strongest backline conceding the least goals. This was thrown into dissaray on Friday however as Weidenfeller picked up a knee injury in training when he collided with Mats Hummels. 22 year old Australian, Mitchell Langerak will take his place and make his debut for Dortmund after arriving form Melbourne Victory at the start of the season, in what has become the biggest game of the season for both sides.


Predictions
Heart: Bayern München 1 - 3 Borussia Dortmund
Head: Bayern München 2 - 1 Borussia Dortmund

Bayern are on the ascendency. I think they will be a very tough for Dortmund to win at Allianz.


One last thing, off topic - Respect to those of you who make match threads on a regular basis. This is my first one - and I can tell you one thing. It took ages...

If Dortmund win, I think that's the league all gone, however, if Bayern win it, I think Dortmund will still win the league, it's their year.

I think it will be a 1-1 or 2-2 draw. Both teams are playing well, with the return of Robben Bayern has the edge, but this season Dortmund seems to be doing everything right.

Gustavo has settled in well well and Bayern are not missing MVB anymore.

I would love to see Dortmund winning it.

Well, it is 3rd vs 1st, and considering the circumstances, yes I would consider it a very big match.


I will put some links to streams in the OP when the game starts.

Bayern vs 1st place of the league are always big matches!

I see Bayern winning this, but you never know especially with the Inter Milan game on wednesday. Some Bayern players might be tired and not able to keep up with the young and fast Dortmund players.

I hope it is going to be an exciting match!

I think Bayern will win, because the duo Robbery is available and not injured! (Robben & Ribery)

Bayern to win 3-0, with Robben and Gomez scoring. Bayern mount an incredible comeback and win the title on the last day of the season. Mark my words.
