Bayern Munich hope to secure another Bundesliga title on Saturday when they welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Allianz Arena.

The Bavarian side are nine points ahead of this weekend's opponents in the German top flight heading into the headline clash.

A win would see them out of reach for their closest rivals with just three games left to play.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund preview

Having crashed out of the Champions League this month and already out of the DFB-Pokal, the Bundesliga title is all Bayern have to salvage their season.

Julian Nagelsmann's team have lost just one of their last 12 matches, with that defeat against Villarreal knocking them out of Europe's premier club tournament.

They have remained dominant in Germany, however, with their last loss in the Bundesliga coming against Bochum in February.

The Munich team will be determined to secure the league crown on home soil and against their nearest competitors to please their supporters.

But Dortmund have won two in a row in the league and got a convincing 6-1 win against Wolfsburg last week.

Marco Rose's team are looking to avoid a humiliation in Munich by conceding the title in the big game.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund tips & predictions

There have been over 2.5 goals in each of the last five matches between these teams and you can get odds of 1/4 (1.25) for that bet to come through again.
