German Cup - First round of fixtures

Bayern Munich (3-3-3-1) v Borussia Dortmund (3-2-4-1)

All times GMT

Main Match

18:00 Saturday 27 September – Sport1

Bayern Munich (27 points) vs Borussia Dortmund (23 points)

Bayern lead the Bundesliga, but Dortmund are in second.

Der Klassiker is always a big occasion for Bayern and when the German giants travelled to Dortmund back in April they faced off in a do-or-die fight for the Bundesliga title.

Bayern triumphed 6-1 and although Dortmund drew 1-1 at home they went on to claim the crown by finishing the season with an extra two points.

Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang faces a possible ban for a red card in that match, while it remains to be seen if Mats Hummels, who grabbed an early goal for Bayern, will play after the club captain was suspended for Wednesday’s Champions League win over APOEL Nicosia.

Philipp Lahm is likely to step in to fill in for Hummels at centre-back.

Elsewhere, it is the final home game for Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, while Dortmund are without striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the Gabon international was suspended for Sunday’s Europa League win over PAOK.
