Predicted Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich starting XIs in Der Klassiker

Borussia Dortmund host Bayern Munich at the Signal Iduna Park on matchday nine of the Bundesliga in the first Klassiker of the season, with a scheduled kick-off time at 6:30pm local time.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s Topspiel, BVB coach Edin Terzić confirmed that Gregor Kobel, Mats Hummels and Gio Reyna will all return to the squad, but they’re still without Marco Reus.

Bayern Munich meanwhile have an almost fully fit squad and have had 24 hours more preparation after playing their Champions League game on Tuesday night. Kingsley Coman returned and is fit enough to feature, but Bayern will still be without Thomas Müller.

Borussia Dortmund: Gregor Kobel – Thomas Meunier, Niklas Süle, Nico Schlotterbeck, Raphael Guerreiro – Emre Can, Salih Özcan, Jude Bellingham – Julian Brandt, Donyell Malen, Youssoufa Moukoko.

Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer – Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Matthijs de Ligt, Alphonso Davies – Leon Goretzka, Marcel Sabitzer – Leroy Sané, Jamal Musiala, Sadio Mané – Serge Gnabry.
