Der Klassiker: the top scorers in Bayern Munich-Borussia Dortmund clashes

Bundesliga fans the world over are in for an absolute treat this weekend, as Der Klassiker, the biggest match of Germany's domestic calendar, explodes into life when Bayern Munich welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Allianz Arena.

Dutch magician Arjen Robben and Polish supremo Robert Lewandowski were both on target during the corresponding fixture on Matchday 11 - which Bayern won 3-1 - but they have some way to go to catch Der Klassiker’s most prolific marksmen…

1st: Gerd Müller, 14 goals

He is the Bundesliga’s record scorer by a country mile, so there are few prizes for guessing who Der Klassiker’s leading scorer is. Bayern legend Gerd ‘Der Bomber’ Müller scored 14 of his 365 top-flight goals against Borussia, with four coming in an incredible 11-1 hammering in November 1971.

2nd: Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, 9 goals

Another Bayern legend, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge saved some of his best displays in a Bayern shirt for the Schwarz-Gelben. He scored twice on his first appearance in the fixture as a fresh-faced 21-year-old in October 1976, netting his final goal against BVB in a 4-4 thriller in May 1983.

3rd: Lothar Emmerich, 8 goals

Held in high regard by Dortmund fans, particularly those of an older generation, Emmerich netted eight goals in just eight matches against Bayern. His finest performance came in September 1967, when he netted a hat-trick in a 6-3 home win.

3rd: Robert Lewandowski, 8 goals

With plenty of time on his side to jump up to second spot in this list, Poland's favourite son has managed seven goals against his former employers in the Bundesliga, with one more coming against Bayern during his successful Dortmund days.

Roy Makaay won two Bundesliga titles with Bayern between 2003 and 2007.

5th: Manfred Burgsmüller, 7 goals

Burgsmüller was a thorn in the side of Bayern over his 20-year-career in the Bundesliga, scoring against them for Nürnberg, Werder Bremen, Rot-Weiß Essen and Borussia Dortmund. He was at his most prolific for BVB, netting seven times against the Bavarians in league football.

5th: Roy Makaay, 7 goals 

Dutch striker Makaay drew a blank in his first two Klassiker appearances, but more than made up for that overall in his four seasons in Munich, netting seven in his next six matches against Dortmund. He also helped himself to a treble in February 2005.

5th: Roland Wohlfarth, 7 goals

Level with Makaay on seven goals, Wohlfarth achieved the stunning feat of netting in four straight Bundesliga games against Borussia between April 1986 and August 1987. In total he scored 120 times in the Bundesliga.

8th: Giovane Elber, 6 goals

Brazilian forward Giovane Elber was already known to BVB fans having scored three times against them for Stuttgart, and he continued his prolific form against Borussia when he signed for Bayern in 1997, netting six goals in just eight Klassiker appearances

8th: Hasan Salihamidzic, 6 goals

Bosnian international Salihamidzic tormented Dortmund in the early part of the 2000s. Having already scored against them for Hamburg, he then notched six Klassiker goals between 1999 and 2007.

10th: Reinhold Wosab, 5 goals

Somewhat lesser known, Wosab notched five goals in just four appearances against Bayern between 1965 and 1967.

11th: Claudio Pizarro, 4 goals

The league’s record foreign goalscorer, Pizarro netted eight goals against Dortmund, although only four of them came for Bayern, with the other four coming for SV Werder Bremen. Barring an unlikely return to Munich, that looks likely to be it for the 38-year-old in this fixture.
