BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION

Dortmund vs

On Saturday afternoon, Dortmund host RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga, in what could be a pivotal game in the home team’s chances of Champions League football for next season.

DORTMUND

BVB head into this big game in good form after recording four straight victories in the Bundesliga. Last time out, Edin Terzic’s team recorded a 5-0 win over Bundesliga.2 outfit Holstein Kiel to book their place in the final of the DFB Pokal Cup.

They will put the cup final to the back their minds for a while, as securing a top-four finish in the German top-flight is their priority this season. Dortmund are currently fifth-place in the table, a point adrift of fourth-place Eintracht Frankfurt and two behind third-place Wolfsburg.

Dortmund’s recent home form has been pretty good, as they have won four of their last five league matches at Signal Iduna Park.

RB LEIPZIG

Last week Die Roten Bullen announced that Jesse Marsch will be their new head coach replacing the departing, Julian Nagelsmann. The latter will want to finish his time with Leipzig in a positive manner.

Nagelsmann’s team head into this clash with a mathematically chance of catching reigning champions Bayern Munich. However, with just three games remaining, the Bavarians are seven points clear at the top of the table. If Hansi Flick’s team beat Monchengladbach in their game this weekend they will be crowned German champions for a ninth straight season.

The visitor’s recent form in the Bundesliga has been inconsistent, as they have won just one of their last three matches in the German top-flight. One positive for Leipzig of late has been their away form, as they have won five of their last six league games on their travels. A 2-1 defeat at Koln in their last away match ended a five-game winning run away from home in the Bundesliga.

Team News

Dortmund are without the suspended Jude Bellingham, while Mateu Morey, Marcel Schmelzer, Youssoufa Moukoko, Axel Witsel and Dan-Axel Zagadou are expected to miss out through injury.

RB Leipzig’s only likely absentee for this clash is midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai.

Match Prediction

Dortmund are unbeaten in six meetings with RB Leipzig, recording four wins in the process. We are predicting that BVB will record another victory over Die Roten Bullen to boost their Champions League hopes.
