Saturday Preview

Borussia Dortmund have lost each of their last eight meetings with Bayern Munich – the last avoiding defeat against the Bavarians in a German Super Cup triumph in August 2019 – but they can defend themselves at Der Klassiker on Saturday.

The teams are heading to their final meeting level with 15 points in the Bundesliga and Bayern Munich should be in turmoil, having followed their 4-0 dismantling of Bayer Leverkusen with a 5-0 thrashing of Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday.

But before Leverkusen’s triumph they were on a four-game winless streak in the German top flight and Dortmund have generally been well trained under Edin Terzic this season.

Since adding combative talents Nico Schlotterbeck and Salih Ozcan to their ranks this summer, Dortmund have had more steel about them, as their 1-0 victory over rivals Revierderby Schalke showed last month.

Wednesday’s Champions League game against Sevilla was easier than expected – Dortmund ran out 4-1 winners – meaning Terzic could limit the minutes of his best players and they can take at least a point on Bayern in front of the yellow wall.

This Dortmund hammering caused the end of Julen Lopetegui’s tenure with Sevilla and the Andalusians are watching everywhere this season.

They have managed just one win from their opening seven league games and taken just one point from their three Champions League group stage matches.

Neither Youssef En-Nesyri nor loanee Kasper Dolberg have managed to put together a scoring streak and they are worth the fight against Athletic Bilbao.

With brothers Inaki and Nico Williams pairing up brilliantly this season, Athletic Bilbao have won their last three games 4-1 against Elche, 3-2 against Rayo Vallecano and 4-0 against Almeria, and show no signs of slow-down.

Injury-plagued Milan lost 3-0 to Chelsea on Wednesday night in the Champions League and potential absences could also hold them back against Juventus.

First-choice keeper Mike Maignan, productive winger Alexis Saelemaekers and veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic are among a long injury list for the Rossoneri, who are unlikely to be full for the visit of the Old Lady.

Juve have work to do themselves but should have restored some confidence with convincing 3-0 and 3-1 wins over Bologna and Maccabi Haifa.

Dusan Vlahovic has scored in both of those wins and is beginning to form a promising partnership with Arkadiusz Milik, at least when Max Allegri opts for two up top, and Juventus could represent value in the double chance market at the San Siro.
