In the 96th Bundesliga meeting between FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Müller will have the opportunity to add their names to the annals of Klassiker history.
But who could they be joining? bundesliga.com has the answers....
The most goals: Gerd 'Der Bomber' Müller
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Bundesliga's all-time leading scorer is also the man to have scored more Klassiker goals than any other player, notching 14 of his 365 top-flight goals in 19 appearances against Die Schwarz-Gelben, including four in an 11-1 thrashing in 1971.
|Gerd Müller||FC Bayern||14|
|Karl-Heinz Rummenigge||FC Bayern||9|
|Roy Makaay||FC Bayern||7|
|Manfred Burgsmüller||Borussia Dortmund||7|
The most wins (as a player): Oliver 'Der Titan' Kahn
As literally the first name on Bayern's team sheet for 14 years between 1994 and 2008, Oliver Kahn contributed to one of the most glory-laden eras in the club's history. The Reds won eight league titles and eight DFB Cups in his time between the posts, with Kahn also playing in a record 13 league wins against Dortmund.
|Oliver Kahn||FC Bayern||13/17|
|Klaus Augenthaler||FC Bayern||10/24|
|Sepp Maier||FC Bayern||10/20|
|Gerd Müller||FC Bayern||10/19|
|Philipp Lahm||FC Bayern||9/11|
The most appearances (as a player): Michael Zorc
Nowadays he is Dortmund's sporting director, but Michael Zorc is also one of Borussia's most iconic figures. The 53-year-old is the club's record appearance holder in the Bundesliga with 463 games to his name, as well as 131 goals, between 1981 and 1998. He has also featured in Der Klassiker more times than any other player:
|Michael Zorc||Borussia Dortmund||28|
|Oliver Kahn||FC Bayern||27|
|Stefan Reuter||FC Bayern / Dortmund||24 (6 for FCB, 18 for BVB)|
|Klaus Augenthaler||FC Bayern||24|

Most wins as coach: Ottmar Hitzfeld
Ottmar Hitzfeld won the Bundesliga title seven times as a coach - twice with Dortmund and five times with FC Bayern - and is behind only Udo Lattek on the list of the league's most successful ever tacticians. The man from southwest Germany is also the man who oversaw the most wins in Der Klassiker from the dugout.
|Ottmar Hitzfeld||Dortmund / FC Bayern||10/26 (4 for BVB, 6 for FCB)|
|Udo Lattek||FC Bayern / Dortmund||6/17 (5 for FCB, 1 for BVB)|
