The Bundesliga prepares for first big clash of the 2018-19 campaign when the Signal Iduna Park host the game between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich this weekend. Both teams were involved in Champions League action in the midweek and both have encountered a minor slump in form. Yet, it is Dortmund who have the advantage over Bayern after opening up a four-point lead in the Bundesliga table. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Borussia Dortmund had Marco Reus to thank after coming up with a narrow 1-0 win over Wolfsburg during the weekend. Dortmund, though, lost their 15-game unbeaten streak with a 2-0 loss against Atletico Madrid to the Wanda Metropolitano.
Bayern Munich are through into the knockout stages of the Champions League after a 2-0 victory over AEK Athens at the Allianz Arena. This game was preceded by a disappointing 1-1 draw with Freiburg, as Bayern conceded late in the game.
Bayern had a memorable recent game against Dortmund after thrashing their rivals 6-0 at the Allianz Arena back in March. Bayern picked up a 3-1 win in their recent visit to the Signal Iduna Park. Our betting tips and predictions expect a stalemate.

Bayern Munich are at odds of 2.10 while Dortmund are given even higher prices of 3.20 to come out successful. Yet, both teams have enough reasons to be concerned ahead of this match. Bayern are still not at their best even if they have managed four wins in the last five. Dortmund have also slipped from their lofty standards set in the first few weeks of the campaign. Dortmund have also managed just one win against Bayern in the last six. Our preview would go with a draw.

Borussia Dortmund win odds: 3.20
Bayern Munich win odds: 2.10
Correct Score odds
Dortmund have been one of the best attacking teams in all of Europe’s top leagues. Their forward line up of Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho has been able to blitz past many opponents. Dortmund have scored an incredible 30 goals this season – 12 more than Bayern. However, both teams have not been at their best in the last couple of matches. The desire to avoid defeat in this match will also be quite high for both teams. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Bayern Munich have ended up producing over 3.5 goals in the last two trips to the Signal Iduna Park, but this match witnesses the two teams in a spot of bother going forward. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals in the game.

First Goalscorer odds
Robert Lewandowski is certainly back on form after scoring a brace against AEK Athens. The Polish international has come up with goals in six out of his eight league games against Borussia Dortmund. Even though the home team do have plenty of offensive talent, Lewandowski’s form makes our first goalscorer prediction go with the Polish international.
