Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund Preview

The "Allianz Arena" stadium receives the German football classic, when the home owners, Bayern Munich, meet with traditional rivals Borussia Dortmund, for the twenty-sixth round of the Bundesliga competitions.

The atmosphere in the Bavarian club in particular is very hot, as the “classicer” will witness the first appearance of the new coach, Thomas Tuchel, after the sudden decision to dismiss Julian Nagelsmann during the international break.

Nagelsmann's last match in office saw Bayern Munich lose from Leverkusen at the Bay Arena, and as a result lost the lead for the first time this season in favor of Dortmund, who crushed Cologne six times during the same round.

Dortmund's victory over the Bavarian, if it happened, would be tantamount to moving away from the lead by 4 points and reviving hopes of ending Bayern's domination of the German League, while the victory of Tuchel's battalion would return it to the top of the Bundesliga again.

Bayern Munich will meet its counterpart, Borussia Dortmund, on Saturday, April 1, 2023, at the Allianz Arena.

The start of the German El Clasico will sound at exactly 17:30 GMT.

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:

Sommer; Pavard, Upamecano, De Ligt; Cancelo, Kimmich, Goretzka, Davies; Sane, Muller; Choupo-Moting

Borussia Dortmund possible starting lineup:

Kobel; Wolf, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Ryerson; Bellingham, Can, Guerreiro; Brandt, Haller, Reus

Following a downturn which saw Julian Nagelsmann ruthlessly sacked and replaced by ex-Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel, the champions trail their visitors by one point in the table; ahead of their trip to Allianz Arena, BVB sit top and have won nine of their last 10 league games.

Having let their vice-like grip on the Bundesliga summit slip just before international football intervened, Bayern Munich took drastic action to prevent their season taking the wrong path: firing their 35-year-old head coach and hiring a Champions League winner to take his place.

Following a 2-1 reverse to Bayer Leverkusen last time out, the Rekordmeister have already dropped more points in 10 matches this year than in 15 played before the winter break. When allied to off-field concerns about Nagelsmann, such a stumble saw Bayern's hierarchy act to draw the curtain on his brief reign in Bavaria.

With perfect timing, Tuchel steps into the hotseat at Allianz Arena, as his new side prepare to meet his old one in Der Klassiker with the destiny of the title still to be decided.
