Borussia Dortmund Vs. Bayern Munich, 2012 Bundesliga: Lineups

Ready for German football's biggest match of the year? Defending champions Borussia Dortmund will have to weather a spirited charge from Bayern Munich if they're to retain the Bundesliga crown, and there'd be no better way to do that then by beating the Champions League semifinalists at home and establishing a six-point cushion at the top of the league. If Bayern win, however, they'll leapfrog their opposition on goal differential - and they'll be looking for revenge after suffering a 1-0 loss to BVB at the Allianz Arena earlier this year.

Borussia Dortmund starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Roman Weidenfeller; Marcel Schmelzer, Mats Hummels, Neven Subotic, Lukasz Piszcek; Illkay Gundogan, Sebastian Kehl; Kevin Grosskreutz, Shinji Kagawa, Jakub Blaszcyzkowski; Robert Lewandowski.

Substitutes from:
Patrick Owomoyela, Felipe Santana, Sven Bender, Ivan Perisic, Matchell Langerak, Lucas Barrios, Moritz Leitner.

Bayern Munich starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Holger Badstuber, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Toni Kroos, Luiz Gustavo; Franck Ribery, Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben; Mario Gomez.

Substitutes from: Hans-Jorg Butt, Rafinha, Diego Contento, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, Danijel Pranjic, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Ivica Olic.
