The fans of German football can see der Klassiker, aka the derby between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich this weekend. The two teams are level on points and leading the Bundesliga after six rounds, which makes the game even more special. In our Dortmund vs Bayern betting preview we check the odds for all results and other factors of the match.
The game between two of the most successful German teams has been one of the most awaited games in the country and all Europe. They played their first game in 1965, when Dortmund won 2-0. Since then Bayern have a better statistics with 49 wins compared to Dortmund’s 26 victories. In their most recent meetings last season Bayern could win both at home and away. And the champions also defeated Dortmund in the German Super Cup 3-2 this September. But now the hosts have a chance to take revenge and finally beat their big rival.
In the Dortmund vs Bayern betting preview still Bayern are the favorite
In spite of playing well and being level on points with Bayern, online sportsbooks in Germany still favor the champions to win in Dortmund. They have the odds of 1.80 for a victory, while Dortmund’s odds are 3.75. It makes sense though as Bayern Munich won everything last season, the Bundesliga, the German Cup and the Champions League. The team was unbeaten until their game against Hoffenheim this September when surprisingly they lost 4-1. But Bayern are back on the track now and won all of their games both domestically and in the Champions League since then.
Hans-Dieter Flick’s side is still very strong even though a few players have left the team in the summer. Like Thiago, who joined Liverpool or Coutinho and Perisic who both returned to their clubs from their loans. Bayern also signed several players including Leroy Sane and Douglas Costa who made the midfield even stronger. But the biggest weapon is still Robert Lewandowski who has already scored 10 goals in the season. He has the smallest odds, 3.50 to score the first goal of the game in the Dortmund vs Bayern betting preview. While Sane’s and Serge Gnabry’s odds to get the lead are 5.50 on bet365.
Dortmund can also score thanks to their brilliant players
Borussia Dortmund have started the new season with an unexpected loss against Augsburg and with a defeat in the Super Cup final. But after that the team has found its form and won all of their games in the Bundesliga. Great young players, like Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho and Giovanni Reyna were leading the team and added their scores. They are predicted to score again with Haaland having the smallest odds, 1.66 to score any time during the game.
Usually these games are rich in goals. So another bet we can make is that both teams will score which has the odds of 1.36. While bookmakers offer the odds of 1.53 if the number of goals will be more than 2.50 with both teams scoring. As a draw wouldn’t be too good for any of the teams, it is not a very likely outcome. Online gambling sites in Germany offer the highest odds, 4.20 for this result. But probably some of the fans would be happy with it still at the beginning of the season.
