Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 4:30pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on BT Sport Europe.

Overview

Bayern's recent form is something one cannot ignore as the Bavarian club have comfortably scoring goals in last five matches. This includes a 5-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League clash at the Allianz Arena.

The Bundesliga champions' defensive record has also been impressive as they have conceded just one goal in last five fixtures in all competitions, while have scored 19 goals in the same time. Pep Guardiola will be hoping his side can continue their recent form when they face their league rivals at home on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Dortmund enter this fixture after a 1-1 draw against PAOK during their trip to Greece. The result was their third straight draw in all competitions, something Thomas Tuchel will be looking to avoid against Bayern.

The worrying factor for the visitors is their former striker Robert Lewandowski is in fine form. He could be a threat playing ahead of German international Thomas Muller. A victory over the league rivals will be crucial for Dortmund going forward this season.

What Managers Say

Pep Guardiola: "Everybody wants to play in games like these. Dortmund versus Bayern is always a special match. It's not like this game will be decisive though. It is not a final. It is about three points. Nothing has been decided after it. Tuchel and his men enjoy having a lot of possession. They want to control the game and break free rapidly with balls over the top."
