Der Klassiker comes right in the week where Germany applies more strict measures on stadium attendance and that is quite a huge factor for Dortmund that would score one goal just for Yellow Kurve. Bayern wants to vindicate Lewandowski after Ballon d’Or. Great odds on Union-Leipzig and Leverkusen-Greuther Fuerth.

Borussia Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich
Saturday, December 04, 2021 – 12:30 PM EST at Signal Iduna Park
If only the Klassiker would have come a week earlier, then Borussia Dortmund could have counted on his whole stadium, or anyway on a large part and which definitely can make all the difference in the world. They had to do a complicated canceling of all sold tickets and resell 15 thousand, so who will be on stands will support also for who isn't, knowing how lucky they are.
Aside from what is going on around off the pitch, Dortmund has been able to recover the gap and keep it at a one-point distance while Haaland was out. Now they can take their chances with their best team, definitely filled up with confidence for performing at the right level was actually missing in Champions.
With Bayern, you always have the impression they will perform when it is needed: they defeated Arminia only for 1-0 after the shocking loss to Augsburg, but this time around they must not underestimate their rivals with all the players they have missing out with injuries or the covid protocols.
Borussia Dortmund has lost all last three previous encounters at Westfalen, and In a certain way, it means a lot because Bayern has, systematically, gone there in the last couple of years to break their hopes for the rest of the season, always playing at their best knowing the importance of it.
Bayern still knows that and they know that they will have to do it again just like Dortmund knows that every time they suffer such a defeat it hits hard on their ambitions and beliefs but also as a way to uplift the level of his teammates.
Those three defeats in the recent past will play a part because Dortmund understands that playing good won't be enough, but an extra factor of determination will be needed. And this time the draw is really on cards.
Union Berlin vs. RB Leipzig
Friday, December 03, 2021 - 02:30 PM EST at Stadion An der Alten Försterei
Leipzig seemed back but at this point they couldn't be more unreliable, just a rollercoaster bouncing up and down on performances between Bundesliga and Champions League.
In the uncertainty of this unusual German season, Union is an asset: solid at home, never hopeless away, protecting their 6th place, and absolutely a pain to face for anybody traveling to Berlin. Very balanced game for a draw.
