Borussia Dortmund Are Unbeaten At Home In The League In 734 Days
German team Borussia Dortmund play their arch nemesis Bayern Munich this afternoon. The yellow and blacks will be hoping to catch up on the sides above them but at least if they lose they won't be losing their ridiculous unbeaten home record.
In the 2014-15 Bundesliga season Borussia Dortmund were nowhere to be seen. Having finished runners up in the league the previous two seasons and won the league in two seasons before that they were having a disaster.
At one point they were genuinely relegation contenders before a second half season surge. On April 4th 2015 they welcomed their rivals Bayern Munich as Pep Guardiola's side chased the league title.

A first half Robert Lewandowski goal is all the separated Pep's side from Jurgen Klopp's. By the end of the season Dortmund would finish seventh and Guardiola's men were once again champions. Klopp ended the season with another loss to Bayern, this time in the cup final, before leaving Dortmund.
The reason that match against Bayern is so significant is because it's the last time that Dortmund lost at home in the league, just over two years ago, 734 days to be precise!

That's 34 games at home in the league without losing, 28 of those being wins and just six draws including just one draw against Bayern, 0-0 and a 1-0 win over Carlo Ancelotti's side earlier this season.
With the pair meeting this afternoon at the Allianz Arena it means that their record will go on at least another week when they play Eintracht Frankfurt, who haven't won in their last six games.

The Yellow Wall will be hoping that they can sing Dortmund to keep their unbeaten run going at home till the end of the season, although after seventh place Frankfurt they've still got to play fifth place Cologne and third place Hoffenheim.
Dortmund are still hoping to finish second but are five points behind RB Leipzig currently.
