Dortmund's Aubameyang will want to cap his week to forget with another goal against Bayern.

Bayern are in firm control of the Bundesliga table, and they hold a ten-point advantage over second place RB Leipzig.

Lewandowski scored with a free kick and a penalty to take his tally to a Bundesliga-leading 25 goals, overtaking Dortmund counterpart Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

He fell offside with both Dortmund's bosses and team-mates alike last Saturday for wearing a mask in a goal celebration - made by one of the club sponsors' rivals.

Ancelotti will hope the Poland global recovers ahead of Wednesday's Champions League tie with Real Madrid as Bayern seek to edge a step closer to European success to add to what will inevitably be another Bundesliga crown. "That is our goal", said Alaba.

Dortmund claimed the last derby, winning 1-0 at home on November 11 after an 11th-minute goal by Aubameyang, but has lost the last two games at the Allianz Arena after winning three of the previous four. Indeed it may turn out to prove more of a nuisance for fourth-placed Dortmund, who are a point behind Julian Nagelsmann's side as they chance a top-three spot needed for guaranteed entry to next season's Champions League group stage.

Dortmund now sit fourth in the Bundesliga table after Hoffenheim leapfrogged them with a 1-0 victory over Bayern last week.

The two sides will also meet in the German Cup semi-final on April 26.


"We're 100 percent focused on this game".

Ancelotti rested play-maker Thiago Alcantara, captain Philipp Lahm and winger Franck Ribery against Hoffenheim and all are expected to return to face Dortmund.

Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti has made it clear that Robert Lewandowski's shoulder injury is nothing serious and he is confident the Poland worldwide will be ready for the upcoming Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

Weigl hasn't scored in the league but has put in intelligent performances at the base of Dortmund's midfield, missing just one league game this season.

Dortmund were in danger of being overrun but, out of nowhere, they hit back.
