Berlin, May 7 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 7th May, 2021 ) :Bayern Munich make their second attempt to wrap up the Bundesliga title on Saturday after Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig clash earlier in a rehearsal for next week's German Cup final.
With three games left, they can now secure the title at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach late on Saturday.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Dortmund posted losses of 26.3 million Euros ($31.7 million) in the first half of the 2020/21 financial year, which could be eased by the 15.25 million euros each club receives for qualifying for the Champions League's group stages.
The pressure is on both clubs.
After training again this week, Haaland is hopefully "pain-free and an option", head coach Edin Terzic said Thursday.
"We got hungry again in the two weeks in which we had no game and had time to recover physically and mentally," said Mueller.
"In the last few years we have never had an easy time against Gladbach, so we know what to expect." One to watch: Robert Lewandowski Despite missing the previous four weeks out with a knee injury, the Bayern striker netted in the shock defeat at Mainz to leave the FIFA best male player of 2020 on 36 Bundesliga goals this season.
With three games left, Lewandowski is closing in on Gerd Mueller's all-time Bundesliga record of 40 goals in the 1971/72 season.
The 75-year-old Bayern legend is in poor health and suffering from dementia, but Lewandowski recently told magazine Sport Bild he believes "Gerd Mueller would want and understand it, if I take the record".
Key facts 5 - Lewandowski's goals in 17 games against Moenchengladbach, his lowest tally against any club currently in the Bundesliga's top seven.
4 - Moenchengladbach wins over Bayern, who have won three of the last seven meetings between the clubs.
