The match has given feisty moments typical of when two massive names collide, most notably through Oliver Kahn’s attempted bite on Heiko Herrlich in 1999’s title decider and Neven Subotic’s provocation of Arjen Robben after the latter missed a crucial penalty in 2012 – think Martin Keown on Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Both sides have had periods of success in the fixture, most notably BVB’s five successive wins from late 2010, but Bayern has dominated overall – as they have with almost every German club – and look the more rounded side going into Sunday’s match.

Pep Guardiola’s team have a 100% record after seven matches and while BVB are unbeaten, they are four points behind after their latest draw with newly promoted Darmstadt.

We take a look at three key battles that could prove pivotal in deciding where the three points ends up this weekend.
