Bayern face Dortmund away on Saturday in a mouth-watering league clash after the Bavarians knocked Borussia off the top of the Bundesliga this weekend with a 2-0 home win against Leipzig when Dortmund crashed 4-2 at Hanover 96.

Dortmund, the German Cup holders, beat Bayern 3-2 at Munich's Allianz Arena in last season's semi-finals on their way to winning the title with a 2-1 victory against Eintracht Frankfurt in May's final.

Bayern will host Dortmund in the cup clash at the Allianz Arena on either 19 or 20 December in a repeat of the 2012, 2014 and 2016 finals.

Dortmund trounced Bayern 5-2 in 2012 before the Bavarians gained revenge with a 2-0 victory in 2014, also winning two years later when the final was decided by penalties after a goalless draw.

The draw has also thrown up four other all-Bundesliga clashes in the third round with Mainz v Stuttgart, Werder Bremen v Freiburg, Borussia Moenchengladbach v Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke v Cologne.
