The latest Der Klassiker comes at a time when it seems Bayern Munich are in crisis and they could take their anger out on Borussia Dortmund.
The German champions have just been eliminated from the Champions League by Villarreal and they now have just domestic competitions to try to win.
They are on the road to winning a tenth consecutive league title in this campaign and BVB is the only club closest to them on the league table now.
If they win this game, they will move 12 points clear of the visitors and that should be enough motivation to get them to win all the points.
Bayern has dominated this fixture in recent times and they have won all their last five meetings with BVB in all competitions.
Marco Rose has done a good job at Dortmund so far and beating Bayern in this game will be special. But the host also knows the threat BVB carries and should be harder to play against than we could think.
Robert Lewandowski has been in great form and this game offers him another chance to haunt his former club.
