Bayern Munich keeper Manuel Neuer says his side believe they can overhaul Borussia Dortmund and defend the Bundesliga title. BVB hold a six-point lead over the Bavarians after 18 games and claimed a Der Klassiker victory in November with a 3-2 win over Bayern at the Westfalenstadion.
Dortmund could be nine points clear by the time Bayern play Stuttgart on Sunday as they host Hannover on Saturday, but Neuer remains convinced his side can close the gap and land a seventh successive Bundesliga title.
“Dortmund are not unbeatable you know,” he told reporters. “I think we saw weaknesses in the first half of the season, they did not leave many points behind, but on one occasion or another it was very close.”
