Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich, DFL-Super Cup, 17.08.2021
Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich renew their rivalries with the first Der Klassiker of the 2021-22 season when they meet on Tuesday evening for the DFL-Supercup battle.
Bayern were held to a 1-1 draw by Borussia Monchengladbach as they launched the defence of their title, while Dortmund ran riot against Frankfurt with a convincing 5-2 win in their opener.
These teams tend to produce classics whenever they meet. We will explore the 1xBet betting options for our tips in this preview.
Borussia Dortmund won their last seven Bundesliga matches at the end of last season and have seemingly not lost a beat if their recent form is anything to go by. New manager Marco Rose set off his tenure with a 3-0 win over lower division side Wehen as they launched their own defence of the German Cup they won last season. They then went on to thrash Frankfurt 5-2 at the weekend as the Bundesliga battle lines were drawn.
Key to both victories has been their prolific marksman Erling Braut Haaland. The Norwegian striking sensation has put aside speculation surrounding his future with two masterful performances in both matches – a hattrick against Wehen and a brace and 3 assists against Frankfurt.
Rose will be looking to build on these as they face their first real test of the season.
Bayern won a record-extending 9th successive Bundesliga title. To go along with that, Robert Lewandowski broke Gerd Muller’s long-standing Bundesliga record with 41 goals to his name. As the new season kicked off, news trickled in on Sunday afternoon announcing the passing on of the German legend, at the age of 75. Muller, a Ballon d’Or winner, was a key part of this fixture back in the 70s and his death will certainly leave a dark cloud in this fixture.
That said, Bayern will need to shake off the rust they have shown not just in the 1-1 draw on opening day but in pre-season. Former Dortmund coach Julian Nagelsmann, who also took up the reins at the Bavarian club just this season, will be looking to get one over his former club.

DORTMUND VS BAYERN MUNICH BETTING PREDICTIONS
This promises to be yet another explosive encounter. Bayern are in desperate need of a game that will jump-start their season and there is no better fixture than this one. They have dominated this encounter with four wins in their last five but they are looking out of sorts at the moment. Dortmund on their part have looked quite good despite losing some of their talents in the off-season. We expect a back and forth battle that is likely to have a bit more physicality and possibly some cynical challenges. As a result, we feel there is value in the cards markets and we are going for Over 3.5 bookings @ 1.95 as the first of our football betting tips today.
Goals are always on the menu when these teams meet. A glance at the goalscorers market leaves us spoilt for choice. We are however riding the Haaland bandwagon here. He has certainly been quick off the block to start the season with 5 goals and three assists in just two games. He has scored the last three times these teams faced each other and 1xBet registration Bonus price of 1.80 for him to score anytime looks good enough to back as our final call.
