Borussia Dortmund back on right track after beating Bayern Munich 1-0

Bayern drew its last match, against Hoffenheim, and has been caught on points by newcomer Leipzig. While it's true that the champions have already won the Supercup, and are top of the league heading into this weekend's fixtures, the natives are a touch restless.

Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has full confidence in veteran goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller's ability to deputise for the injured Roman Burki, starting with Tuesday's Champions League game against Legia Warsaw.

When it comes about the last five duels with Dortmund, The Bavarians have won two of them and ticked three draws.

The Germany defender spent seven years at Borussia Dortmund - having initially spent a season on loan at the club from Bayern - before rejoining his boyhood club this summer.

"Dortmund have an attacking style with a lot of fast player", he said. Borussia Dortmund prepare to take on title-holder Bayern Munchen at Signal Iduna Park.

It's ironic. The Bundesliga has recently been known as a two team league, with everyone else looking up as Bayern and Dortmund slugged it out at the top.

On Saturday, it must perform as the sum of its parts or face a long way back in a title tussle that could be played out across more than two fronts. Unfortunately for Ancelotti and co. individual talent in the Bayern squad is at an all-time low as a number of key players have been vastly underperforming.

The momentum was now with Carlo Ancelotti's men and Bayern piled on the pressure, Thiago Alcantara just failing to properly connect with a flying scissor kick five minutes before half-time.

After just 11 minutes, Gotze played in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang inside the penalty area and the Gabon global converted for the game's only goal. Thomas Mueller still hasn't scored in the league this term (he got 20 Bundesliga goals last season), and summer signing Renato Sanches is struggling to make an impact.

On the other hand one of the interesting facts about Muller is that he didn't score in the Bundesliga this season, so it will interesting to see if he can open his account.

After a fierce start to the season, Dortmund has faltered significantly, which saw them occupy only fifth position with 18 points.

- Despite Aubameyang's reputation as a quicksilver opponent, the more traditional number nine is a far more liberal dribbler.
