The German football powerhouse Bayern Munich will meet a bitter rival on Saturday at a crucial point in their season

With 52 points, FC Bayern is two points ahead of second place in the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig. A defeat against Dortmund would jeopardize Bayern’s leadership

Dortmund is in fifth place with 39 points, well behind the front runners, but starts the weekend with four wins The club is also likely to be hungry to challenge its rival after beating each of the last four head-to-head competitions which Bayern lost, including a 3-2 decision in November

With 28 goals and six assists in 22 league games this season, striker Robert Lewandowski remains the elite of Bayern and the Bundesliga

Offensive firepower comes in the form of a younger player for Dortmund 20-year-old Erling Haaland has scored 17 goals in 18 games and has attracted the attention of some of the best European teams in the transfer market

Haaland already scored against Bayern in November, which perhaps gives confidence that he can succeed again on Saturday.His late goal in this game this fall, however, did not have much impact on the final result, as Lewandowski in 48 Minute a 1-1 draw broke and Leroy Sané in the 80 Minute for Bayern met

In the end, Haaland’s goal in the 83 Minute not enough to excite Dortmund
