Victory for Bayern Munich against Borussia Dortmund in their next Bundesliga fixture would be enough to earn them the title once again this season, according to winger Franck Ribery.

The top two clash at the Westfalenstadion when the league restarts following the international break and a victory for the defending champions would open up a gap which Ribery feels Dortmund would not be able to recover from.

"It's definitely the game of the year," the Frenchman told Bundesliga.de.

"I'm already looking forward to it.

"If we were to win there, then we would have seven points more than Dortmund and that would be a premature decision in the title race."
