Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund live score, result, stats, lineups for Klassiker clash in Bundesliga

Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund lock horns in the latest Klassiker on Saturday as the Bundesliga returns for the decisive phase of the season.

Champions Bayern are at major risk of seeing their streak of 11 consecutive league titles snapped this season. They sit 10 points behind unbeaten leaders Bayer Leverkusen after 26 games, meaning anything other than victory here could be a potentially decisive blow to their hopes of retaining the trophy yet again.

Dortmund are back in fourth, their own title hopes very much over, but a positive result here would be a real boost to their chances of UEFA Champions League qualification, and they will want to sustain good form before their quarterfinal first leg against Atletico Madrid on April 10.

While the title may not be on the line for this matchup, it remains the biggest draw in German men’s football and rarely proves a let-down when it comes to entertainment.

The Sporting News will be following the Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Dortmund match and providing live score updates.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund lineups, team news

There have been concerns around Bayern’s star striker Harry Kane due to an ankle injury that saw him miss England’s games against Brazil and Belgium, but he returned to team training on March 28 and is expected to be involved.

However, there are doubts over goalkeeper Manuel Neuer (adductor tear), Aleksandar Pavlovic (tonsilitis) and Raphael Guerreiro (thigh muscle tear). Joshua Kimmich may have to continue at right-back, giving Konrad Laimer a chance to start in midfield.
