FC Bayern München will need to overcome a six-game streak without a win in competitive matches against Borussia Dortmund to keep their dream of a treble alive.
The two heavyweights of German Football clash in the quarterfinals of the DFB Pokal (German FA Cup) on Wednesday night at the Allianz Arena. Dortmund have had the upper hand over FC Bayern for two years, becoming German champions in consecutive seasons, but also handing the Bavarians some crushing blows along the way.
FC Bayern have not beaten Borussia Dortmund since a 3-1 win in 2010 under the guidance of Louis van Gaal in the Bundesliga.
It should be noted that FCB did pick up a 2-1 win against Dortmund in the German Super Cup—but this counts as an "unofficial" and non-competitive match.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, though, is looking forward to the colossal battle at the Allianz Arena where 72,000 supporters will watch one of the most in-demand games on the planet.
The FC Bayern supremo told die Welt: "It is an exciting duel between the two. A difficult game, too, but not only for ourselves, for Borussia Dortmund. Fans in Germany can look forward to this one."
As the league leaders look to hand Dortmund a blow this time round, here is a look back at the last six matches between the two teams.
