Dort­mund host Bay­ern in

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

The count­down to the lat­est in­stal­ment of Der Klas­siker to­day, 19 No­vem­ber is al­ready un­der­way. FC Bay­ern München go into the match at the Sig­nal Iduna Park sit­ting pretty at the top of the Bun­desliga, but Borus­sia Dort­mund could move to within three points of the record ti­tle­hold­ers with a vic­tory.

De­feat to Dort­mund would not only see Bay­ern’s lead over Die Sch­warz-Gel­ben cut to just three points, it would also leave the door open for RB Leipzig to leapfrog the Bavar­i­ans at the top of the Bun­desliga

One of the fiercest fix­tures in the Bun­desliga calendar, Der Klas­siker is a caul­dron of emo­tion for the play­ers that take to the pitch.

From Frank Mill's 'Miss of the Cen­tury' to Thomas Müller's first ever Bun­desliga goal, Der Klas­siker has served up some un­for­get­table mo­ments down the years.

There are not many fix­tures in world foot­ball that get the juices flow­ing quite like Borus­sia Dort­mund vs FC Bay­ern München.

Head here for a pic­to­rial look at some of the most mem­o­rable Klas­sik­ers of yes­ter­year.

The Bun­desliga's record goalscorer, Gerd Müller, is also the man to have reg­is­tered the most goals in Der Klas­siker.

Rarely is there more of a pres­sure-cooker feel to the dug-out than in Der Klas­siker. For some, it is sim­ply too much to stom­ach, while oth­ers rise to the oc­ca­sion. 9pm, GO Sports 2, ATP World Tour fi­nals London – semi­fi­nal 2 (live)
