Rivals Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are all set to square off in the latest installment of Der Klassiker - German football’s biggest game - in a top-of-the-table clash in Bundesliga 2022-23. The match will begin at 10:00 PM IST on Saturday, April 1.
Dortmund is on top of the Bundesliga 2022-23 standings with 53 points from 25 games, while Bayern is one point behind the table-toppers with 52 points in 25 matches.
Needless to say, the upcoming Der Klassiker could have a massive say in the Bundesliga title race. A win for Bayern would see them leapfrog Dortmund in the standings, while a Die Borussen victory will help them extend their lead to four points on top of the table.
The earlier meeting between these two rivals in Bundesliga 2022-23 ended in a 2-2 draw in October last year.
The upcoming clash though is likely to be more pivotal in the title race. Furthermore, Saturday’s faceoff between these two sides will be the first match for Thomas Tuchel as Bayern’s new head coach after the Bavarians sacked former manager Julian Nagelsmann over the international break.
Tuchel, who was manager of Die Borussen from 2015 to 2017 and won the 2016-17 DFB Pokal with them, can expect a tough outing in what will be his first appearance in the Allianz Arena as Bayern manager.
As far as head-to-head between these teams is concerned, there have been 132 Der Klassikers so far in all competitions.
Bayern Munich has won 67 of these encounters, while Dortmund has 34 Der Klassikers triumphs under their belt. There have also been 31 draws between these sides.
