Bundesliga - BVB vs FCB tonight: Clash of the Season

The Bundesliga title race is a close one this season with FC Bayern Munich just three points behind Borussia Dortmund and the two clubs meet tonight in what many expect to be a high class game, but the title most likely will not be decided tonight with four rounds of matches to be played thereafter even if Dortmund win and move six points clear.

The match between the defending champions BVB and record champions FCB at Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park will be between the two currently best German football clubs with a huge interest in the match. The game will be shown live in over 200 countries with Dortmund receiving ticket interests from over 450,000 fans.

The situation before the match is clear. If Dortmund win, then it will be the killer blow for Bayern Munich's title quest; while any other result - a draw or win- will keep the title race open until the end. Both teams come into the match with impressive series. Dortmund are unbeaten in their last 23 Bundesliga matches, while Bayern Munich have won their last nine matches across all competitions.

Dortmund come into the match having won their last three encounter against Bayern Munich, amongst them a 1-0 away win through a Mario Götze goal earlier in the season, with the Bavarians having a track record of losing four matches in a row only against Werder Bremen. FCB know that only a win counts and their confidence after the series of wins is on a high but just like Dortmund they aren't hyping-up the match with both sides playing an uncharacteristic low key media build-up.

Both sides are expected to field their currently strongest teams with Dortmund to continue to miss the services of a recovering Mario Götze, while at Bayern it isn't clear if Bastian Schweinsteiger will get a start or coach Jupp Heynckes opts for Toni Kroos and Luis Gustavo.

At 20.00 CET is kick-off and lets hope for a good game.
