Dortmund prepare to face Bayern in key Bundesliga showdown

SHOWS: DORTMUND, GERMANY (APRIL 4, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) DORTMUND COACH, LUCIEN FAVRE, SAYING: "Of course it's a little special, also because of the table.

It's Bayern against Dortmund.

Of course that's something special but there are seven more games and this is the next one.

(laughter heard) As Michael said, we have to show a top performance.

We have to do everything perfectly if we want to win, that's clear." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) DORTMUND COACH, LUCIEN FAVRE, SAYING: "Just like any team, they too have weaknesses.

The greatest teams in the world have them.

But they don't have a lot of those.

They have a lot of strengths in fact.

We know that." STORY: Borussia Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said that his side will have to be "perfect" to beat Bayern Munich in Saturday's (April 6) crunch Bundesliga match.

Dortmund have recovered from their slump in the past two months, earning last-gasp victories in their last two matches.

Asked to comment on the importance of the game, Favre said Saturday's game was "special ... but there are seven more games." The Bavarians, who have won the last six league titles, are two points behind Dortmund after their surprise 1-1 draw at Freiburg last week.

Victory over Dortmund would put Bayern back in front in the title race while defeat would leave them five points adrift with six matches remaining.

Dortmund are on 63 points, with Bayern on 61.
