Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich live stream: How to watch Der Klassiker for FREE

The Bundesliga drama continues tonight as second-placed Borussia Dortmund face league-leaders Bayern Munich at home at the Signal Iduna Park. The clash will see Erling Braut Haaland and Robert Lewandowski line up on opposing sides for the first time in the German league.

Tonight’s Der Klassiker could prove to be a title decider for the 2019-20 season.

Haaland’s 10 goals in as many Bundesliga games have placed Die Schwarzgelben in a good position, breathing Bayern down the neck.

Dortmund are on a roll, with an eight game-winning sequence, with no goals conceded in their two matches since returning to the pitch.

Marco Reus said ahead of the match: “Every club, and ourselves included, are to blame for not consistently picking up points against the big teams.

“Continuity is the key word [but] it’s difficult when there are injuries to important players and changes to the squad during the season.

“I think everyone in Germany wants the title race to be a bit more exciting.”

However, the Black and Yellows will face a tough game tonight, with the league’s top scorer Lewandowski on good form.

What time does Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich kick-off?

The Bundesliga clash kicks off at 5.30 pm BST (6.30pm GMT +2).

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho wants £36m-rated star as transfer target holds contract talks

Tottenham are interested in signing Napoli star Arkadiusz Milik in the upcoming transfer window as the striker will be entering the final 12 months of his contract this summer and has yet to agree to an extension.

Milik has a great scoring record for Napoli since he joined the club back in 2016 from Ajax.

The 26-year-old has found the back of the net 46 times in 109 appearances for the club in all competitions.

However, the Poland international could be sold this summer if he chooses not to extend his current contract with Napoli, and according to transfer expert Nicolo Schria, Tottenham are interested.

“Tottenham are always looking to Arek Milik,” Schria tweeted.

“The polish striker could leave Napoli in the next months if he will not extend his contract (which expires in 2021).

“Talks ongoing.”

Milik has suffered a few injuries this campaign, which has limited him to just 22 games, with five of those appearances coming off the bench.

However, the striker has still managed to score 12 goals, three of which came in just four Champions League matches.

But ongoing talks have not been fruitful and Napoli now face the prospect of the forward possibly running down his contract next season and then leaving on a free transfer in the future.

According to Italian publication CalcioMercato, Milik is seeking to be paid on par with Greek centre-back Kostas Manolas and Napoli hero Dries Mertens.

The report claims Milik is currently earning around £2.2m (€2.5m) per season and is seeking to increase this to around £3.6m (€4m) per season.

Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis suggested in March that he would only be willing to enter negotiations if a club are willing to table an offer of at least £36m (€40m) for Milik.

However, he would be willing to sell the striker outright if Napoli were offered £45m (€50m).

Another issue for Milik is that he has been sharing his attacking duties with Mertens.

And while the Belgium international turned 33 this month, he has recently agreed to a new two-year contract with the club, according to Sky Italy.

The report claims Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso was key to getting the deal concluded, with the World Cup winner persistent on getting Mertens to extend his contract.

This could be the ideal opportunity for Tottenham to make their move with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho desperate to add another striker to his squad this summer.

The Portuguese coach has relied heavily on Harry Kane to lead the attack, but when the England captain suffered an injury on New Year’s Day, Mourinho’s options were limited.

He tinkered with his squad to find a solution, with mixed results, and Milik could end up being the ideal solution for both the player and the club.

Man Utd boss Solskjaer makes Diogo Dalot transfer decision amid Barcelona interest

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to keep Diogo Dalot at Old Trafford this summer, despite the star being a transfer target for several top European clubs, including Barcelona. The 21-year-old hasn’t featured much this campaign following the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace in a £50million deal.

Dalot has also suffered from several injuries this season and as a result, he has been limited to just 10 games so far this campaign, with four of those appearances coming off the bench.

However, the full-back, who United signed for £19m from Porto in 2018, is still wanted by Solskjaer, according to ESPN.

The report claims Solskjaer wants Dalot to stay and fight for his place while also providing cover at right-back and left-back.

However, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are both interested in the talented defender.

Dalot had only made eight first-team appearances for Porto before then United boss Jose Mourinho signed the player.

The Portuguese coach described Dalot as the “best young full-back in Europe” when the Red Devils signed him two years ago.

Since then Dalot has only managed to make 33 appearances in two seasons, however, in February the player insisted he was ready to continue fighting for a spot in Solskjaer’s starting XI.

“That’s what keeps you strong at this level. Now it’s about keeping on working hard and hoping to get my opportunities and then grab them.

“I will keep fighting for the team and I want to keep pushing hard because I know I can play a lot of games here.

“As I said in pre-season, I want to make a statement and fight for my position, and I want to show everyone that I can be a good right-back here.”

Liverpool chiefs told to BAN You’ll Never Walk Alone anthem if Reds play in empty Anfield

Liverpool chiefs have been urged by Reds goalkeeper Adrian to place a ban on playing the ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ anthem if the team have to play matches in front of an empty Anfield when Premier League games resume.

The Spaniard thinks the temporary ban should be put in place because fans will not be in the ground to sing it due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s going to be very strange and we will have to accept playing in Anfield without fans, without the ‘You will never walk alone’ although I hope they don’t put it on the speaker,” Adrian told Onda Cero radio.

“In the end we are professionals and we have to take that step forward and like everyone we have to adapt to the new reality.”

Germany’s Bundesliga resumed playing matches on Saturday with games played behind closed doors and under strict health rules.

Liverpool are currently top of the table and have a 25-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.

However, at the moment the club are focused on resuming training ahead of the season restarting.

Liverpool have re-opened their Melwood training ground for individual sessions last week and are hoping to begin small group workouts from Tuesday.

“They [Liverpool] have told us that once we start training in small groups, which I expect will be from Tuesday or Wednesday, we will have to have two [coronavirus] tests a week and answer daily questionnaires,” Adrian added.

“I hope we can start training in small groups as soon as possible as to train alone is difficult.

“I haven’t seen Jurgen [Klopp at the training ground] but I imagine he is monitoring everything with cameras. He is very charismatic.

“You miss in training the closeness that he has with players.”

Man Utd backed to seal summer Jadon Sancho transfer because of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been backed to be the key reason why Jadon Sancho will complete a transfer from Borussia Dortmund this summer. That is the view for former Red Devils midfielder Owen Hargreaves.

United are currently fifth in the Premier League and are just three points off fourth-placed Chelsea. However, the Red Devils were on an 11-game undefeated streak when football was suspended.

Solskjaer has backed himself in building a youthful side, with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Daniel James, Arron Wan-Bissaka and Scott McTominay.

And Hargreaves, who won a Premier League title and the Champions League during his time at Old Trafford, believes Sancho will want to be part of this project.

“Often you see a lot of teams sign players and sometimes you think ‘that’s not a good fit’,” the BT Sport pundit said.

JUST IN: Man Utd working on Corentin Tolisso signing as Paul Pogba’s Old Trafford future unclear

“For Jadon, he will know his own game and he has to find whats the best fit obviously. United have an exceptionally good group of young players coming through and I think any young player would want to be the part of that.

“Liverpool and City have gone away from everyone else but United would still be a team to join. Also, he knows Manchester well because growing up he was at City.

“Things go in cycles and United will come back. Recruiting a guy like Jadon would help but it’s more about Jadon finding what fits for him.”

The England international is having a great season for Dortmund and so far this season he has scored 17 goals and has provided 19 assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

However, he is under contract with Dortmund until 2022 and the German club are seeking a fee of around £100million to consider selling him.

And while Hargreaves thinks this is a lot of money, given the state of the current market, he thinks United will be looking at the player as a long-term investment.

“Football has become so structured and technical but he is a kid like who can bring his own style into the game and play with such creativity – it’s so hard to anticipate what he’s going to do.

“Normally when you watch games you know what is going to happen. With Jadon, he does things off the cuff almost like Neymar and in a way that’s quite priceless because he can make things happen.

“When teams sit deep and there’s no space, Jadon finds space. So whoever gets him will be quite fortunate.”

Man Utd star Lindelof opens up about Maguire partnership as Solskjaer eyes transfer target

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been open about the club exploring the transfer market as he looks to overhaul his squad in the summer window. However, Victor Lindelof believes his partnership with Harry Maguire is improving both of them this season.

United have struggled with inconsistent performances for large parts of the season and are currently sitting fifth in the table.

Maguire has admitted that United players have “probably let ourselves down” with their performances this season.

And while United have conceded 30 goals in 29 league games, with eight clean sheets, the club appeared to have turned a corner before football was suspended, as they were on a run of 11 games undefeated.

For the majority of this season, Maguire has been partnered by Lindelof in United’s back four and the Sweden international believes he is helping his team-mate improve and vice versa.

“Well, yeah, it’s been great playing with Harry a lot this season,” Lindelof said in a question and answer session with United fans.

“It’s very important to play a lot of games together and you learn a lot from each other.

“The more games you play, the better you get as players and so it’s been great as we’ve been helping each other a lot and getting some good results.”

Solskjaer currently has multiple centre-backs at the club and the Norweigan is not only looking to offload several of them this summer, but the Red Devils have also been linked with signing some defensive reinforcements too.

One of those targets is Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, who has been tipped to leave the club this summer.

The 28-year-old has been followed by top European clubs, including United, for several seasons, and according to Italian publication, Gazzetta dello Sport, Koulibaly has decided to leave Napoli at the end of the season.

However, Lindelof believes United have been improving lately with himself playing alongside Maguire.

“I think we’ve been improving lately as well, before the break,” he added.

“We had a lot of clean sheets and performed well.

As for Solskjaer, while he admitted earlier this month that he is happy with his current squad, the United boss also reiterated that the club are always exploring the transfer market.

“We’re always looking to improve the squad,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“This uncertainty in the market now, who knows how football and the market is going to be, but I’m very happy with the squad I’ve got.

“Today’s world is different to what it was two months ago. We’ve got to adjust, adapt, there are clubs out there struggling more than us financially. It’s a new world, and I think the transfer market this summer will be completely different to what anyone thought it would be.”
