10 Players Who Won Big Trophies Without Doing Much

Since football in Germany resumed two weeks ago, Dortmund and Bayern have been two of the most in-form teams in the league, and will go head to head on Tuesday evening.

Lucien Favre's men beat Schalke 4-0 at the Signal Iduna stadium in their first fixture since the sport resumed, and continued their form with a 2-0 away win over Wolfsburg this past Saturday.

Bayern go into Tuesday night's encounter on the back of a 5-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, while they beat Union Berlin 2-0 two weekends ago.

Form, however, tends to go out the window in the biggest fixture in Germany, although the Bavarians did thrash their Klassiker rivals 4-0 when they met in their first league derby of the campaign in November.

Furthermore, Hans Flick's team are on a six-match winning streak on the road, but Dortmund will be confident of keeping up their scoring form at home, having struck at least two goals in 28 of their past 30 Bundesliga matches.

The dangerman for BVB will undoubtedly be wonderkid striker Erling Haaland, who has scored 41 goals in 35 matches for his new club and RB Salzburg this season, while Bayern's go-to player will be Robert Lewandowski, who has also struck 41 times in the same number of games.

Here is how the teams will line up:

Dortmund: Bürki, Piszczek, Hummels, Akanji , Hakimi, Dahoud, Delaney, Guerreiro, Brandt, Hazard - Haaland

Bayern: Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Coman, Müller, Gnabry; Lewandowski.
