Match Prediction, Odds & Free Tips
On Saturday evening, Dortmund hosts RB Leipzig in what promises to be one of the most exciting encounters of this weekend’s Bundesliga weekend.
BVB have once again fallen six points behind league leaders and reigning German champions Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga title. A 1-1 draw at surprise-package Koln last time out in the Bundesliga means that Marco Rose’s team are unbeaten in six league games, having recorded four wins. At this stage of the season, though they need to win every game and hope that Bayern slip-up along the way.
Dortmund have a formidable recent home record, winning 15 of their last 17 Bundesliga matches at Signal Iduna Park. The two other games resulted in defeats to Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen. BVB have also been prolific on home soil in the top-flight, scoring at least two goals in 16 of their last 17 home games in the Bundesliga.
Die Rotten Bullen head into this clash on the back of a six-game unbeaten run, including four wins, which has seen the visitors move into the Champions League spots. However, Domenico Tedesco’s team are only above fifth-place Freiburg courtesy of a superior goal difference.
The visitor’s recent away form has been stellar, as Die Roten Bullen have won four of their last five Bundesliga games on their travels. One of the key factors in the visitor’s recent good form on their travels in the German top-flight has been their attacking efforts, as they have scored at least two goals in four of their last five away matches in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund vs Leipzig Team News
Dortmund could be without a host of first-team players, including Marco Reus, Manuel Akanji, Thomas Meunier, Marcel Schmelzer, Felix Passlack, Nico Schulz, Youssoufa Moukoko, Steffen Tigges and Mateu Morey. RB Leipzig’s only absentee is likely to be defender Lukas Klostermann.
Dortmund vs Leipzig – Match Prediction
These are two of the best attacking teams in the Bundesliga, so there should be goals. Leipzig have won just one of the last nine meetings with Dortmund. We are predicting more misery for the Die Roten Bullen against BVB, as we believe the home team will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter.
