Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win in the Bundesliga derby over Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munchen moved one step closer to defending their trophy. The mighty Bavarians proved their worth in der Klassiker, with boss Hansi Flick once again showing that he deserves the job. Bayern Munchen aim to cement top position in the standings, and they are seen as hot favourites to pick up all three points from Saturday’s football game against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Philippe Coutinho remains in the recovery room, but Hansi Flick has a number of top-class footballers to choose from. Fortuna Dusseldorf, on the other hand, recorded a very important 2-1 win over Schalke 04 on Wednesday evening, with the team putting an end to their four-game winless run in the German top flight. Uwe Rosler’s men, though, face an uphill task against Bayern Munchen, and given FCB’s current form, home win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Robert Lewandowski):
After scoring 36 goals in 59 league games for Znicz Pruskow, Robert Lewandowski joined Lech Poznan in June, 2008. The 184-cm-tall attacker scored 18 goals in 28 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Ekstraklasa campaign and during the season he was on Borussia Dortmund’s radar.
The Polish forward signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side in June, 2010 and he quickly established himself as the team’s key attacker. Lewandowski was producing excellent performances with the Millionaires between 2010 and 2014 and it has to be noted that he won two Bundesliga trophies with the club (2010/2011, 2011/2012). He participated in the 2012/2013 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund, but the Millionaires were beaten by fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in the title game.
However, he betrayed Borussia Dortmund fans in 2014 as he signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga giants. Lewandowski impressed in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign as he scored 30 goals in 32 league games for Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Polish footballer represented his homeland at Euro 2016 in France and he scored one goal at the showpiece tournament in France.
