Danny Rose of England takes on Mirko Ivanic of Montenegro

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich: Hosts look sharper

Kick-off: 1930, 17/08/2021

Stadium: Signal Iduna Park

TV: Sky Sports

Borussia Dortmund were less disrupted by summer internationals than Bayern Munich and looked sharper in the opening round of Bundesliga games.

The black and yellows have lost five straight head-to-head encounters but did prevail in this German Super Cup fixture two years ago.

That was on home turf and we like 33/20 for them to prevail again at Signal Iduna Park for our first Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich prediction.

A Look At Borussia Dortmund’s Betting Odds

Dortmund warmed up for the new league campaign with a 3-0 cup victory at Wehen-Wiesbaden before hammering Eintracht Frankfurt 5-2 on Saturday.

The increasingly-impressive Erling Haaland hit a hat-trick in the knockout match and then bagged a brace over the weekend.

Marco Reus had earlier broken the deadlock to help give us a 13/5 pay-out among two successful selections, with Thorgan Hazard and Giovanni Reyna also netting.

New manager Marco Rose said: “It was a good start and now it is about building on that and developing consistency.”

Last season’s three Klassiker contests produced 16 goals, so 23/10 for a home win and over 2.5 in this game is worth the extra risk from the Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich odds.

A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds

Bayern’s returning internationals were denied a much-needed run-out due to the postponement of their DFB Cup match against Bremer SV and it showed in a 1-1 draw at Borussia Monchengladbach.

Alassane Plea put the Foals ahead after 10 minutes and it took a Robert Lewandowski leveller just before half-time to earn the champions a point.

The prolific Poland striker scored on the opening matchday for a record seventh season running and is obviously always a threat.

Julian Nagelsmann described his first game in charge as “a gripping match” but added: “You are never satisfied when you don’t win.

“There were many chances for both sides. We were a bit lucky towards the end.”

This promises to be another action-packed Klassiker and 4/1 for either side to lead and then lose is worth adding to our Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich betting tips.

That wager would have paid out in their last meeting in March, when Dortmund raced into a 2-0 lead but ultimately went down 4-2.
