Bayern Munich v Borussia Dortmund live stream, team news : Klopp set for stiff test

The Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich host a horribly out of sorts Borussia Dortmund in Saturday’s big clash.

Munich haven’t conceded in their last seven league games, since a 1-1 draw at FC Schalke back in August.

Pep Guardiola’s men have a four point advantage at the top of the table, after their goalless draw away to second placed Borussia Monchengladbach last time out.

During the midweek they eased past Hamburg in the German Cup, winning 3-1 thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski, David Alaba and Franck Ribery.

Borussia Dortmund’s league form has been appalling and they sit above the relegation zone by just a point going into the game.

A 1-0 home defeat to Mainz was a fourth consecutive league loss and a fifth in six games, meaning they face a real challenge to qualify for Europe next term.

They did manage a comfortable 3-0 win away to St. Pauli in the DFB Pokal, with Marco Reus among the scorers.

Last season both sides won the away fixture 3-0, although Dortmund’s win came after Munich after they had secured the title.

Team news
Lewandowski will lead the line for Munich against his former employers, with Mario Gotze also playing against his old club.

Xabi Alonso has been in excellent form since moving from Real Madrid in the summer and will start in holding midfield.

Dortmund are slowly getting players back and Reus, Ilkay Gundogan and Mats Hummels are all fit to feature.

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang looks likely to lead the line ahead of both summer additions in Ciro Immobile and Adrian Ramos.

Bayern: Neuer; Benatia, Boateng, Alaba; Rafinha, Lahm, Alonso, Bernat; Muller, Gotze; Lewandowski
Dortmund: Weidenfeller; Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Sokratis; Bender, Gundogan; Mkhitaryan, Kagawa, Reus; Aubamayeng
