Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Two of the most powerful teams in the Bundesliga and DFL Supercup history will square off on Saturday night, as Borussia Dortmund welcome Bayern Munich at the Signal-Iduna-Park for their German Super Cup clash. Borussia Dortmund have suffered a 0-1 loss at the hands of Atalanta in a friendly fixture two days ago, while Bayern Munich lost 0-2 against SSC Napoli in the Audi Cup. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Both teams have struggled in the pre-season, and both looked poor in the final third recently. BVB are playing in front of their own fans, and they have been in fine shape over the past seven months, losing just three of their last 15 home fixtures across all competitions. Furthermore, they have won two of the last three meetings with Bayern Munich across all competitions, including a 2-3 victory in the DFB Pokal Cup last term. I’m expecting an entertaining affair with at least three goals scored, but I think that the quality contrast between these two sides is much bigger than in the previous seasons and Bayern should be able to lift the trophy.

Borussia Dortmund Preview

Borussia Dortmund finished only third in the Bundesliga table last season, three points off the runner-ups RB Leipzig. However, they managed to win the DFB Pokal Cup following a 1-2 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt thanks to a first-half goal from Ousmane Dembele and a penalty-goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. BVB’s pre-season has been pretty awful as they have only won two of their six friendlies. They enter the fray on the back of a three-game winless streak, including two disappointing 0-1 defeats at the hands of Espanyol and Atalanta. This will BVB’s first official game under the guidance of Peter Bosz who joined the team from Ajax towards the end of the last season. Regarding transfers, Dortmund managed to keep their key players at the club this summer in comparison with the previous years when they sold Hummels, Gundogan, Mkhitaryan or Goetze. However, they have still sold some players this summer as Matthias Ginter, Sven Bender, Adrian Ramos and Pascal Stenzel have all left the club for a total fee of €35.5 million. Regarding arrivals, BVB brought in Maximilian Philipp from Freiburg for €20m, Omer Toprak from Bayer Leverkusen for €12m and Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Moenchengladbach for €12m. All three players could make their competitive debut for BVB on Saturday, as Dortmund still have a short squad with many players missing through injury.

Borussia Dortmund Team News

Marco Reus and Julian Weigl are both missing through injury.

Bayern Munich Preview

Bayern Munich’s form in the pre-season has been abysmal as they have lost five of their six friendlies, with their only success being a 2-3 win over Chelsea in the International Champions Cup. The Bavarian giants come into this tie on the back of a three-game losing streak, conceding seven goals and scoring none in the process. Although it’s just the pre-season, the fact that Bayern haven’t scored a single goal in four of their last five games it’s something very uncharacteristic for the Bundesliga defending champions. Furthermore, it will be a strange feeling for Bayern Munich’s fans to see their team kicking-off a new domestic season without the likes of Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso, as both of them retired. In terms of arrivals, Carlo Ancelotti brought in Corentin Tolisso from Lyon for €41.5m, Niklas Sule from Hoffenheim for €20m and they also finalized the permanent move of Kingsley Coman from Juventus for €21m. In addition, Bayern made a smart deal by bringing in James Rodriguez on loan from Real Madrid for €10m with a permanent purchase option, while Serge Gnabry came for €8m from Werder Bremen, but he went on loan to Hoffenheim for a season. Bayern Munich have only won the German Super Cup once in the last four years while Borussia Dortmund managed to win it twice.

Bayern Munich Team News

Manuel Neuer is still out through injury, as well as Juan Bernat and Thiago Alcantara. The good news is that both Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng have trained this week and they looked to be fit enough to play some part in the game.
