Hansi Flick head coach of Bayern Munich declares encountering Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker will be considered as "the icing on the cake for everyone."

Hansi Flick remarks that we will be observed by the 

"whole world"

when Bayern Munich and


Borussia Dortmund argue with the Bundesliga.

It is planned that on Saturday Bayern take trip to Signal Iduna Park because of an eagerly awaited Klassiker crash between the top two.

With 15 points, the European champions and Dortmund are at the summit. Bayern merely stepping ahead on goal difference.

Bayern head coach Flick is aware of the threat may be posed by Dortmund. He welcomes Leon Goretzka back again due to his injury.  However, he will continue without Niklas Sule and Joshua Zirkzee due to their

positive coronavirus

tests. He declared in a news conference on Friday: "Dortmund are an exceptional team. They have the best defense in the Bundesliga and extraordinary qualities in switching from defense to offence.”

"They have good players, not only [Erling] Haaland but also many others. They are very quick and we have to stop them by standing compact and defending well.”

"That's why it is important that we as a team act just like we have in recent games. I'm looking forward to the match. These matches are the icing on the cake for everyone: Players, coaches, the staff and the fans.

"Obviously you want to win the matches against Dortmund. It's the German


. Everyone is motivated," he continued.

"We all know that not only all of Germany is watching, but the whole world [too]. That's what gives us extra motivation for this match.

"We are as confident as ever in our qualities and that's why we will try everything in order to leave the pitch as the winner on Saturday."
