Bayern-Dortmund Combined XI

Record Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich will face longstanding rivals Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker on Saturday, but which stars would feature in a combined XI of the two German giants?

Bayern and Dortmund have both started the 2020/21 campaign with five wins and one defeat to set up a top-of-the-table clash on matchday seven.

While Dortmund lost to Augsburg on matchday two, Bayern were beaten by Hoffenheim in the same gameweek.

However, both teams have since recovered with four wins in the following four games, with BVB even keeping four clean sheets too.

When the two sides meet on Saturday at 19:30 SA time, it will be a battle between the best forward line, with Bayern having scored 24 times this season already, and the best defence, with Dortmund conceding only twice all campaign.

As a consequence, our Der Klassiker Combined XI has three BVB defenders, while Bayern dominate the attacking positions.

Of course, players such as Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland, who have netted 15 goals between already this season, cannot be left out – you can see the complete selection by scrolling through the gallery above!
