There isn’t any different recreation in German soccer fairly like Der Klassiker. Yr in and 12 months out, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund discover themselves competing on the high of the Bundesliga desk, and when the rivalry recreation comes round, everybody tunes in.
Tuesday’s version of Der Klassiker isn’t any totally different, particularly with the remainder of the soccer world nonetheless shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Soccer followers from everywhere in the world can have their eyes glued to the screens to see who comes out on high.
The primary-half assembly between the 2 sides was one other disappointment for Dortmund as they suffered a 4-Zero loss — one other embarrassing consequence away on the Allianz Enviornment. Dortmund has misplaced every of their final six journeys to Bayern by an mixture rating of 26-3. Fortunately for them, Tuesday’s match can be performed at Sign Iduna Park, the place they’ve had far more success. The Black and Yellows pulled off an exhilarating 3-2 victory at residence over the Bavarians final season, and so they opened up the 2019-20 season with a 2-Zero win within the DFL Tremendous Cup over the defending Bundesliga champs.
The 2 gamers to concentrate to are the strikers. For Bayern, that is free-scoring veteran Robert Lewandowski, who could also be extra hated by Dortmund followers than some other participant in historical past. That hate stems from the truth that he bought his begin in Dortmund, becoming a member of the group in the summertime of 2010. He broke into the beginning lineup in 2011-12 and bagged 22 targets; he led Dortmund to a league and home cup double that 12 months, scoring a hat trick within the DFB Pokal closing in opposition to Bayern. After two extra seasons in Dortmund, Lewandowski left and signed with the Bavarian giants, making him the most-hated man in Dortmund. It hasn’t helped that he is scored 15 targets for Bayern in Der Klassiker and lifted the league trophy for 5 straight seasons.
Lewandowski leads the Bundesliga with 27 targets this season and has an opportunity to problem Gerd Muller’s report of 40 targets if he can keep sizzling, however surprisingly, he is not probably the most medical finisher on this recreation — at the very least not as of late. That title belongs to Erling Haaland, the 19-year-old Norwegian who will make his Der Klassiker debut. Haaland joined Dortmund within the January switch window from RB Salzburg and hasn’t stopped scoring since. In 10 Bundesliga video games he is bagged 10 targets, placing him on tempo to crack the highest 4 in targets scored this season regardless of solely taking part in half the 12 months. He is presently averaging a purpose for each 2.1 pictures he takes, in comparison with 4.Three pictures per purpose for Lewandowski for the reason that begin of the brand new 12 months.

It is also value taking note of who will get the beginning for Dortmund. Sancho’s come off the bench within the final two video games, supposedly nonetheless working by a tweaked ankle. Giovanni Reyna, the 17-year-old American wunderkind, was supposed to begin the primary recreation again within the Revierderby in opposition to Schalke, however he harm himself throughout warmups.
