It is better to keep a cloak of silence about the Dortmund Bundesliga record at Bayern Munich. On Saturday (6.30 p.m., live on Sky), BVB will start another attempt to kidnap points from the Allianz Arena. The last time was in 2014.
Bayern coach Flick: “BVB has absolute class”
Bayern coach Hansi Flick looks forward to the classic with anticipation: “Games against Dortmund are always special. BVB has absolute class, even if they are a bit behind this season. In the last few games in particular, they have shown what quality they are, ”said the 56-year-old at the press conference on Friday afternoon.
The black and yellow heralded the turnaround at the right time – this is also due to Edin Terzic. “He,” said Flick, “does a very good job. The constancy is now there, including the results. You get more confidence in your strengths. Dortmund plays very aggressively against the ball. In addition, they are of enormous quality with Ball. ”He also liked the philosophy of Lucien Favre, who was dismissed in December.
Bayern versus BVB: Looks at Lewandowski and Haaland
The eyes are also on the two best Bundesliga strikers on Saturday evening: Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland. “He’s really hungry for goals, the future may be his. Erling Haaland has everything you need for it. He’s fast, has a really good finish and a great mentality. We need pressure on the ball – we have to do that well on Saturday, ”said Flick.
Bayern still have to do without right-back Benjamin Pavard, who is not yet fully resilient after his corona illness: “After such an illness, it is important that you have a timetable – we have that. You have to slowly increase the load and then see how the body reacts. ”
