Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Allianz Arena when Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund face each other in the Bundesliga derby. The mighty Bavarians aim to bounce back from a shocking 1-0 loss to Hoffenheim, but Saturday’s football game against the star-studded Millionaires will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Carlo Ancelotti’s troops are 15 points clear of Borussia Dortmund ahead of Matchday 28, meaning that they would be happy with one point from the derby. Thomas Tuchel’s troops recorded a 3-0 win over Hamburger at their Signal-Iduna-Park in midweek, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash against the title holders. Anyhow, considering that they are desperate to melt Bayern Munich’s advantage to 12 points, we predict that the visitors will go all guns blazing at the Bavarians in the Allianz Arena showdown and, taking everything into account, a lively contest appears on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Jerome Boateng):
After spending the 2010/2011 season at Manchester City, Jerome Boateng moved to Bayern Munich on 14 July, 2011. The 192-cm-tall defender joined the Bundesliga giants for a fee of €13.5 million and he has been playing for the Bavarians ever since. Despite the fact that his father is Ghanaian, Boateng decided to represent Germany on the international stage. He has 15 caps for Germany U21 and represented Germany national team at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The Bayern Munich defender produced a thrilling performance in the title game, preventing Argentine star Leo Messi from scoring. Boateng won the World Cup trophy with German and it has to be noted that he clinched his fourth Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich in the 2015/2016 season. In 2013 he helped the mighty Bavarians win the Champions League trophy. Unlike Jerome, his older brother Kevin-Prince Boateng plays for the Ghanaian national team. The Bayern Munich defender has a contract with the Allianz Arena outfit which expires on 30 June, 2012.
Highlighted Team (Borussia Dortmund):
1909 by eighteen footballers from Dortmund. Die Schwarzgelben (The Black and Yellows) play their home games at Signal Iduna Park, but the stadium’s original name is Westfalenstadion. The capacity of Borussia’s home ground is 81,539 and it has to be noted that the stadium was opened in 1974. BVB have the highest average attendance in the world of football. Borussia Dortmund have won eight Bundesliga trophies, while clinching the German Cup title three times. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1997 when they outplayed Juventus in the Champions League final. Karl-Heinz Riedle scored a brace for BVB in the 3-1 win over Juve, with Lars Ricken finding the net in the title game as well. Borussia’s biggest rivals are Schalke 04 and the two teams square off against each other in the Revierderby.
