06 Apr Der Klassiker: Lewandowski vs Aubameyang
No fixture in the Bundesliga stands out like the famous Der Klassiker (also known as the German Classico).
Bayern Munich hosts their fierce rivals Borussia Dortmund on Saturday in the battle between Germany’s most successful clubs.
This is an epic match with quality all around the field and fans will get a chance to compare different star players. The question of who is the best striker in the Bundesliga will also come up in this fixture.
Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the leading goal scorer this season with 25 goals. He has been nothing short of phenomenal hitting the target with 67% of his shots at goal.
Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski has scored just one goal less and the pair are chasing the top scorer award.
So who will be on the winning side? Current form suggests that Bayern should be favourites for this match, having won five of their last six matches. They lead the league and are 15 points ahead of their rivals who are fourth, RB Leipzig is second.
The form book, however, counts for very little in a match like this. No match will motivate Aubameyang and co. more than this one.
Another plus for Die Borussen is that Bayern are coming off a loss to Hoffenheim on Tuesday, while Dortmund beat Hamburger 3-0.
Dortmund are also chasing a top three buy cheap valtrex spot in the league so they can qualify automatically to the UEFA Champions League group stages instead of having to play a qualifier.
Bayern are comfortable at the top of the log as they are 10 points ahead of second-placed Leipzig.
So who will it be Aubameyang or Lewandowski? The young Ousmane Dembele or the seasoned Arjen Robben?
