  • Bundesliga roundup: Schalke deepens Wolfsburg relegation worries with 4-1 win

The battle between the mighty Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund takes place Saturday in the Bundesliga.

He was speaking after being asked whether Bayern would rather sign Christian Pulisic, Julian Weigl or Ousmane Dembele in order to weaken Dortmund. Find out by following our live matchcast.

With Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal first leg with Real in mind, Ancelotti said: "Boateng is fresh and will start against BVB - whoever doesn't start against Dortmund will play against Real Madrid".

The Bavarians got off to an explosive start and were 2-0 up after only 10 minutes with 34-year-old Franck Ribery completing a dazzling move that wrongfooted the entire Dortmund defence twice in the fourth minute.

Arjen Robben twice went close and Lewandowski might have got another before Raphael Guerreiro pulled one back to allay Dortmund's fears of a rout. However, the Portuguese left-back was on target with his next attempt in the 20th minute, his piledriver flying into the top-left corner of the goal after Arturo Vidal's clearance fell straight to him. In a match with little action for long periods, it suddenly came to life with two minutes remaining when Leipzig's Willi Orban picked up a second yellow card for hauling down Diego Demme.

Dortmund, which hosts Monaco in the Champions League on Tuesday, stayed fourth after failing to capitalize on third-placed Hoffenheim's earlier defeat in Hamburg.

Alonso said of his former team: "We know it's going to be a tough game and we will need to be on top of our game".

The likes of RB Leipzig and Hoffenheim emerged major title contenders this season but from the way it looks at the moment, none but Bayern look the champions, yet again. His side stayed second, seven points clear of Hoffenheim.

After extending his contract to 2022, Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn had to pick the ball out of his net in the 13th minute of the Rhine derby when Jannik Vestergaard headed the visitors in front.

Then 'Gladbach captain Lars Stindl struck the victor in the 80th to lift the side to eighth, a point behind Cologne in sixth.

Only goal difference was keeping Mainz out of the relegation zone, though that could change Sunday when Augsburg, which also has 29 points, visits Hertha Berlin.
