Bayern Munich goes to Dortmund

Share |

Now that they know they will spend the winter break atop the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich can relax on its trip to Dortmund and then watch its closest rivals in fight.

Michael Ballack team has a four-point lead going into the final round before the break, and plays a road game against a new young Borussia Dortmund squad on Saturday.

But the most interesting match of the 17th round is Sunday, when third-place Werder Bremen hosts second-place Hamburger SV.

Bayern has 41 points, Hamburg has 37 and Bremen 35. Sunday's clash pits the league's most prolific attack against the tightest defense. Werder Bremen has scored 45 goals, while Hamburg has conceded only eight.

Juventus Football Club hope to have Michael Ballack join former Bayern Munich teammate Willy Sagnol in the italian squad fpr the next season.

French defender Willy Sagnol is set to confirm his transfer to Juventus in January as he comes off contract in June. It's reported the Frenchman has already agreed terms over a pre-contract with the italian team.

At the same time, it's been known that Juve chiefs have also drawn up a £3.5 million-a-year pre-contract proposition for Ballack to consider.

The deal would make Michael Ballack the highest paid player at the club, but still may not be enough to see off prime rivals Real Madrid for the Bosman prospect.
