Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are set to meet in the Bundesliga for the 105th time. Here are the facts on Saturday evening's top match at Signal Iduna Park (kick-off at 18:30 CET).

The scenario: Second versus first, the best home team against the second-best away team. BVB have emerged victorious in six of their last seven league games, Bayern in five of their last six. In total, both clubs have already won 10 Bundesliga matches this term.

History: It is the 39th meeting between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich in the last 11 years. By way of comparison: there have only been 24 derbies against Schalke in this period. In addition to the 22 Bundesliga meetings, there have been seven cup ties (including three finals), eight Supercup showdowns and, the biggest highlight, the final of the 2013 UEFA Champions League. Borussia have won 13 times, Bayern Munich on 22 occasions.

Home/away: Borussia Dortmund have won each of their last 11 Bundesliga home games. Their last home defeat was a 2-1 loss to Frankfurt on 3 April. Their tally of 21 points from the first seven home games of the season is more than double what they had at the same stage of 2020/21 (nine). Only Bayer (Leverkusen) and Bayern (Munich) have already won four matches on the road. FCB's only defeat on their travels was a 2-1 at the hands of Augsburg on 19 November.

Head-to-head record: In meetings between the two sides in Dortmund, there have been 16 BVB and 17 Bayern wins (plus 19 draws). BVB have not suffered more home defeats to any other opponent. Borussia have failed to score in 32 Bundesliga meetings with Bayern – but Bayern themselves have not failed to score against a single opponent more often than they have against BVB (22 times).

Statistics: The Black & Yellows have already amassed 30 points – that's eight more than at the same stage of last season. No team has won more penalties than Borussia (five); Bayern have not conceded a single penalty kick this season and have suffered the fewest defeats of all 18 clubs (two: at home to Frankfurt and away to Augsburg). The men from Munich have scored at least one goal in each of their past 60 Bundesliga matches.

Biggest home win: It dates back to 3 June 1967. Borussia won 4-0 at Stadion Rote Erde that day thanks to braces from Lothar Emmerich and Reinhold Wosab. Compiled by Boris Rupert
