  • Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich Preview First Klassiker of the season already set in prove pivotal to title race

The first Der Klassiker between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich didn't disappoint on Saturday, with the Bavarians winning a thrilling game 3-1.

Bayern also edged past RB Leipzig in the German Cup last week and have won their two Champions League matches under Heynckes to nail down a spot in the knockout stage with two games to spare.

Six wins from their first seven matches were then followed by a sudden slump in form and two losses and a draw in their last three games.

Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and David Alaba netted the goals as Heynckes' magic touch worked again, four weeks after Carlo Ancelotti was sacked.

Lewandowski is available after missing the 2-1 win over Celtic with Heynckes assuring fans the striker "has not sustained an injury, but an overburdening", while also saying that "Dortmund will be much more concentrated and attentive" this weekend.

Marc Bartra, the defender who was injured in April's bomb attack on the Dortmund team bus, scored the hosts' consolation goal two minutes from time.

The chances continued to come, with Andriy Yarmolenko sent clean through on goal, but he took too long and saw his tame shot easily blocked by goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.

The match lived up to its top Bundesliga billing with an entertaining first half and with Bayern gradually taking control. "It looks now he can play from the start against Dortmund".

"Josh (Kimmich) spotted I was alone in the area and put in a good cross - it's my job to finish chances like that".

Peter Bosz's side have scored a league-high 27 goals so far with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring 10 of those, while summer signing Maximilian Philipp has impressed with five goals since his move from SC Freiburg.

Elsewhere Schalke, who are now undefeated in their last six games in all competitions, climbed to fourth - level on 20 points with neighbours Dortmund - with a 1-0 win at Freiburg.

However, Filip Kostic put Hamburg back in front and Germany Under-17 global Jann-Fiete Arp, with his second in two games, sealed the win.

Castro missed another opportunity in stoppage time and the makeshift right-back's strike provided short-lived relief amid an increasingly dismal run for Dortmund.
