The 100th Bundesliga playing of 'Der Klassiker' could decide the 2018-2019 title as second-place Bayern Munich hosts leaders and arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund.

In what ESPN FC is already calling the most important meeting of Germany’s two biggest clubs in the last six years, Der Klassiker could likely decide the German title this season. Bayern Munich, the defending champions, who are going for their seventh title in a row, sit two points off the top of the table. Their arch-rivals, Borussia Dortmund — who won back-to-back championships in 2011 and 2012 — occupy that first place slot. This season’s Bundesliga winner could likely be determined in the match that will live stream from Bavaria on Saturday.

Dortmund won the first Der Klassiker back in November, getting by the defending champions 3-2, and by the start of December, the club has shot to nine points clear and appeared well on their way to their first title since the 2012 campaign, according to the BBC.

But starting in January, the leaders slumped, going through a stretch in which they took just six points from five matches, per Soccerway, allowing Bayern right back into the title race — a race that will likely be decided on Saturday. A win puts Dortmund five points clear with six games remaining, while a draw allows the gap with Bayern to remain at two. But should the Munich side take the victory, they jump back into first place by a single point.
