Bundesliga games you won't want to miss on Matchday 14
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayerb München: The rivalry between these teams does not need any introduction, and with the top spot in the table up for grabs, we can anticipate one of the most intense matchups of the competition. Both sides have stellar weapons to damage their rivals, but we will let you go deeper into what can go down in Der Klassiker in our detailed match preview.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Greuther Furth: The third-placed team in the Bundesliga will have to put in a lot of effort to keep their place in the tournament, but the good news for them has to do with their rivals this weekend, where they will play against last-placed Greuther Furth. The recently promoted side has only been able to win one game this season, but stranger things have happened in the Bundesliga and they will surely try to leave a lasting impression.
Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Freiburg: The Vultures have had an impressive run during this season, but their recent form has seen them lose three games. With that in mind, Christian Streich's men will want to go back to winning ways in the Bundesliga, and what better way to do so than defeating Borussia Mönchengladbach, a team that has also struggled to claim points throughout the season. The fact that both teams are desperate to add points to their tally could give us the chance to watch an interesting match, as both of them will be eager to get a win here.
