Sebastian Kehl is hoping that Borussia Dortmund can finally end their winless run against Bayern Munich when the two rivals collide in the Bundesliga this weekend.
One of the biggest games in Germany will take centre-stage this weekend as Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich lock horns in the Bundesliga. The Black and Yellows will look to finally get the better of the Bavarians this weekend, having not won against them since the DFL-Supercup final in 2019.
Sporting director Sebastian Kehl was asked to preview the game following BVB’s 1-0 win over TSG Hoffenheim on Wednesday. And the 43 year old made it clear that their desire is to take the fight to Bayern Munich, and finally end their winless run in this fixture.
"“It’s the biggest game we have in Germany,” Kehl said (via Ruhr Nachrichten). “And that’s why we’re going to prepare very, very well for it and, of course, we want to win here at home this weekend.”“Of course we want to take every opportunity to beat Bayern Munich as well, especially at home. I think it’s been a little while now [since our last win]. And it’s time we do it again.”“We are still unbeaten. We’re in good shape, we’re in good form, we have a very, very good squad that has gained huge resilience and stability. I believe that this team has worked very, very hard in recent weeks. And that will benefit us at the weekend.”"
Borussia Dortmund’s last win over Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga came back in 2018. Although they can take inspiration from last season’s 2-2 draw, where Edin Terzic’s side came from two goals behind and scored a 95th minute equaliser through Anthony Modeste.
Bayern Munich prepared for this weekend’s crunch clash by suffering an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to third division side 1. FC Saarbrücken in the DFB-Pokal on Wednesday. Although Thomas Tuchel’s side will be eager to issue a response at their arch-rivals’ expense this weekend.
