How Bayern Munich could line up against Borussia Dortmund

Sports Mole looks at how Bayern Munich could line up against Borussia Dortmund this weekend.

Bayern Munich will welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon with first position in the Bundesliga table up for grabs.

As it stands, Bayern are second in Germany's top flight, two points off leaders Dortmund.

The reigning champions have won their last seven home Bundesliga matches, while Dortmund have been victorious in just two of their last six on the road.

There is simply no downplaying the importance of this weekend's clash, with Bayern looking to return to the summit at a vital stage of the season.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Bayern could line up on home soil.


Out: Corentin Tolisso (knee)
Doubtful: Arjen Robben (calf), Manuel Neuer (calf), David Alaba (thigh)

Manuel Neuer missed Bayern's DFB-Pokal quarter-final against Heidenheim on Wednesday night with a slight calf problem, but the goalkeeper is expected to return to the starting XI against Dortmund.

David Alaba and Arjen Robben also missed out in the same match due to thigh and calf problems respectively, but the pair could also return to the squad this weekend.

A 4-2-3-1 formation is expected to include Serge Gnabry, James Rodriguez and Kingsley Coman in the three positions behind Robert Lewandowski, who has 33 goals to his name this season.

Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez, meanwhile, should start as the midfield two, leaving Leon Goretzka on the bench.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
