Bayern Munich will be looking to seal their tenth straight Bundesliga title as they host rivals Borussia Dortmund on April 23, 2022. The match begins at 22:30 IST, and it may be the last Der Klassiker face-off between Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland.

Bayern Munich have set the grandest stage to seal yet another Bundesliga title, and winning against their arch-rivals will be a sweet pill to swallow after their disappointing exit from the Champions League. Borussia Dortmund have almost sealed their place in next season’s UCL, but with slim hopes of winning the title, they will come into this match knowing their fate lies in their hands.

They may not have had the best of seasons in Europe, but Bayern Munich have preserved their domestic dominance as they inch closer to their tenth straight Bundesliga title. The Die Roten have won their last four league games, conceding only once, and will fancy sealing their title victory against their arch-rivals.

Bayern Munich are nine points clear at the top of the table and have scored 89 goals, with Lewandowski getting 32 of them. The Polish striker has been imperious and is the highest goal scorer in this fixture with 31 goals.

Borussia Dortmund Form and Team News

Norwegian striker Erling Haaland may be on his way to a new club in the summer, but his Dortmund side have been in decent form this year, despite their injury crises. With one defeat in their last nine matches in all competitions, and a comprehensive 6-1 victory against Wolfsburg last week, Haaland and Co will be confident of a shock victory at the Allianz Arena.

Dortmund have a poor away record against Bayern in recent years, and their last Der Klassiker win in Munich came in 2014. They are, however, yet to lose an away fixture in 2022. Haaland has been their most prolific outlet with 18 goals and seven assists this season.

Borussia Dortmund have several players injured, which is a concern for their fans. Gregor Kobel, Mats Hummels, Thomas Meunier, Thorgan Hazard, Mahmoud Dahoud, Giovanni Reyna, Axel Witsel, Donyell Malen, and Steffen Tigges are all on the sidelines and will not make the trip to Munich.

From their head-to-head record, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich have only failed to score over two goals twice in their last ten meetings.
