Bayern Munich Vs. Borussia Dortmund Live, 2011 Bundesliga: Lineups

With so much at stake in the massive Bundesliga clash between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, the home team have perhaps had the better luck. Arjen Robben was questionable for the match, but has made the starting lineup. Lucas Barrios is apparently not 90 minutes fit, and Jurgen Klopp has stuck with Robert Lewandowski up top. Both teams also are missing key players from the 18-man squad. BVB defender Neven Subotic is out with a broken orbital, while Bayern midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is out with a broken collarbone. Here are the lineups.

Bayern Munich Lineup (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Lahm, Badstuber, Boateng, Rafinha; Luis Gustavo, Kroos; Müller, Ribery, Robben; Gomez

Borussia Dortmund Lineup (4-2-3-1): Weidenfeller; Schmelzer, Santana, Hummels, Piszczek; Bender, Kehl; Grosskreutz, Kagawa, Götze; Lewandowski

It sounds a bit odd to say this, but BVB have the much stronger bench and have a variety of attacking players they can use to change the game. Nils Pederson and David Alaba aren't quite as intimidating as Ivan Perisic and Barrios. However, 'Kuba' Jakub Blaszczykowski is not available for BVB.
