The second Der Klassiker takes place this Saturday at Dortmund’s home ground, Signal Iduna Park.
Peter Bosz says that his side will need to “do other things” if they are to beat Bayern Munich.
Dortmund have taken just one point from their last three games and have slipped to second in the Bundesliga table, with Leipzig trailing 1 points behind.
Dortmund seems to have fallen prey to the very offensive style football that they have been playing which exposes their defense on counter-attacks.
“If you are brave against Bayern, you have no chance. If we win we will again be the league leaders so we will do our best to win the game “,said Bosz.
“In particular, it is about being more secure in the defensive process and, at the same time, making more use of the numerous scoring opportunities. ”
Bayern Munich on the other hand has been in scintillating form, winning in all their last 5 fixtures.
If the Bavarians win this, they’ll surely go on to win the German Title, and looking at their current form and team fitness, their chances look decent.
The two Best Strikers in the Bundesliga will go head to head in the second Der Klassikier with both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looking set to battle it out between them to win the Torjägerkanone this season.
Both strikers are currently sat on 10 league goals each. Aubameyang is, however, edging Lewandowski across all competitions, one extra goal in the DFB Cup the only thing to put the Gabonese forward ahead of Bayern’s star man.
