Der Klassiker is a level above El Clasico – Bayern Munich CEO


Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said that the German version of El Clasico, Der Klassiker between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund is a level above the Barcelona and Real Madrid match-up at the moment.

“It’s become a Klassiker. We all looked a bit jealously at Spain when Real and Barca were playing each other in the Spanish Clasico, but I think now Dortmund-Bayern is a Klassiker in itself,” he said in an interview with Bundesliga.

“I think we saw that recently when we played, a great game by the way, 3-2, it could have been 5-4 looking at all the chances. It was just a great game, and the day after I think it was Real vs. Barca, and it wasn’t comparable in terms of the quality. So you can say the Bundesliga version is just a level above at the moment.”

The quality in El Clasico has dropped visibly over the years. Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, Lionel Messi hasn’t scored in six El Clasico.
