This weekend, the Bundesliga enters the final third of the season. Will Leipzig or another rival break Bayern's title streak? Will BVB still reach the UEFA Champions League or can Wolfsburg and Frankfurt defend their places? Will FC Schalke still manage to stay in the league?
The pay-TV channel Sky will broadcast the matches of the 24th matchday of the Bundesliga. On Saturday evening it's that time again. With FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, the two defining clubs of the past Bundesliga decade will meet.
The match between the two heavyweights may not be a direct duel for the championship this time, but it is no less important for both clubs. The record champion wants to stay at the top of the table with a current two-point lead over Leipzig, while BVB does not want to let the gap to fourth place in the table grow.
Dortmund's last point win in Munich was seven years ago
It has now been seven years since Borussia Dortmund managed to pick up Bundesliga points in Munich. Whether the trip to the Allianz Arena will be successful this time or whether Bayern will extend their streak. Sky expert Lothar Matthäus and Sebastian Hellmann get the viewers in the mood for the top match, Wolff-Christoph Fuss comments on the duel between the two rivals.

In addition to the classic match between Bayern and Dortmund, a total of seven other Bundesliga matches are scheduled for Matchday 24. Among others, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen will meet, both of whom want to reverse the current negative trend and achieve their season goals in the final spurt of the season. In addition, Bayern chasers RB Leipzig are guests in Freiburg and Eintracht Frankfurt receive VfB Stuttgart. The season is rounded off with the matches between 1.
