Sparkling Bayern Munich relish timing of Borussia Dortmund clash

Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Preview First Klassiker of the season already set in prove pivotal to title race

Bayern, the defending champions, stay on course to win the title for a sixth straight season as they leave RB Leipzig behind in second, while Dortmund are now six points off the pace in third.

"We shouldn't get carried away".

"Every single player in our squad can and must play better than in the past two weeks - if we want to defeat Bayern, we need a significant increase in performance from every professional".

Dortmund's evening got even worse before the end of the first half due to Sokratis Papastathopoulos limping off injured, but they could so easily have been back in the match had Yarmolenko got the better of Ulreich in his second clear-cut chance of the contest. We have seen them play and will prepare according to our play, but it will be up to the players to show that on the field.

Their sole win in their last five games came in a 5-0 thrashing of 3. "Whether it's my goal or not, that does not matter".

Marc Bartra scored a consolation of sorts for Dortmund in the 88th minute.

Mainz took the lead on 19 minutes through French defender Abdou Diallo, but Gladbach equalised when towering Danish centre-back Jannik Vestergaard headed home midway through the second half. He is now the Bundesliga's top scorer.




Ulreich also kept out a stinging shot by leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Dortmund are winless in their last three league matches and have won just a single match in their last six in all competitions, a stretch including a pair of disappointing draws to lowly APOEL in the Champions League, and a shocking 4-2 loss to Hannover in the Bundesliga a week ago.

It is not at all surprising that Bayern have conceded the least amount of goals in the Bundesliga so far this season with seven, while only Saturday's opponents Dortmund have found the net more times.

"First of all, Peter Bosz was a good footballer and when you become a coach at Ajax you have to bring a lot of know-how and he certainly has", Heynckes added. We just chased after them and were always too late, so you can't talk about us being a top team.

"We didn't come out ready to play in the first half".

Meanwhile, Bayern president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has ended their interest in Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, insisting that the Chilean forward has already chosen his destination.
