Prediction for this match
The intense speculation around Erling bride HaalandThe future of the Norwegian obviously has no influence on the scoring qualities of the Norwegian, as the Dortmund talisman was involved in all five goals of his team in an opening game against Frankfurt on Saturday.
After he had scored all three goals of his team in the DFB Cup against Wehen Wiesbaden, Haaland scored two goals and prepared three more against Frankfurt – with Giovanni Reyna, Thorgan danger and Marco Reus also open their accounts for the campaign – like Marco RoseThe team stormed into the top three after one game.
Of course, it was inspired performances by Haaland, Reus and the now deceased Jadon Sancho Dortmund won their place in this year’s German Super Cup, with the trio each scoring two goals in last year’s DFB Cup final in a 4-1 win against RB Leipzig and BVB not winning the Super Cup until 2019.
With Bayern now confirmed as one of the many clubs ready to begin an intense bidding war for Haaland’s signature, the scorching Scandinavian would do nothing better than to drive his team to more silver over his admirers, who mourn the loss of a single one of their greatest goalscorers.
Gerd Müller lived to testify Robert Lewandowski breaks his long-running Bundesliga scoring record after the prolific Pole scored 41 league goals last season, but the 566-goal icon died on Sunday afternoon at the age of 75.
As a World Cup, European Championship, three-time European Cup and four-time Bundesliga winner, Müller scored 15 times in 20 games for Bayern against Dortmund – including four goals in an 11: 1 destruction of BVB in 1971 – and the game on Tuesday is sure to have an extra sense of emotion after the Ballon d’Or winner’s death.
In a twist that only surprised a few, Müller’s successor Lewandowski was on the list of goalscorers on the first day of the Bundesliga season, but his goal just before half-time only saved the Bundesliga winner one point after the win in Mönchengladbach Alassane Plea took 10 minutes to open the scoring.
Julian Nagelsmann had to cope with numerous absences during a challenging preparation for the season – in which Bayern won a total of zero games.
However, Bayern have trumps in their last five encounters with Dortmund in all competitions – including a 3-2 victory in the Supercup last year – although the black and yellow won three of the seven duels between the clubs in this curtain increase .

Roses defensive ranks were also affected by the losses of Mats Hummels (Tendon) and Raphael Guerreiro (Wade), and while the former has returned to the training pitches, he will most likely be ruled out against his former club.
Emre Can also missed the opening game on Saturday against Frankfurt despite the previous optimism about its availability, so Axel Witsel can again be forced to represent the defense on the side Manuel Akanji, and Thorgan Hazard will be absent with an ankle problem.
Bayern have now lost the right-back Benjamin Pavard sustained an ankle injury prior to meeting Mönchengladbach and the Frenchman could now reportedly be out of action for at least a month.

Goals are almost always guaranteed when these two clubs meet, especially since Lewandowski and Haaland, two of the world’s best number nines, have a quick start in the Bundesliga.
No team is where they would like to be due to injury and it should be an exciting but highly competitive affair and we expect Dortmund’s level of play to lead them to victory after an entertaining stalemate.
