Lothar Matthäus exclusive: “When discussing Bayern’s rivals, you always start with Borussia Dortmund”



Der Klassiker

Even this early in a Bundesliga campaign, it’s rare that a Klassiker doesn’t pit first against second. It is even rarer when neither Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund occupy the first two places.

But after eight matches in the new season, that’s precisely what football fans will be treated to this weekend. Sunday’s Klassiker sees a third trip to face the fourth at the Westfalonstadion in Dotmund. Above the giants of German football are Union Berlin and Freiburg – first and second respectively. Although none of the minnows hold any real hopes of ending Bayern’s streak of 10 consecutive league titles, they are proving boring to the establishment.
