Borussia Dortmund – BVB not given up on catching Bayern?

The gap to Bayern Munich and the Bundesliga summit is six points, meaning we do indeed have a title race in Germany with 21 points still there for the taking. It could, and probably should, have been a smaller deficit had BVB not allowed a 1-0 lead and two points to disappear after a 1-1 draw last time out away to FC Koln. That result only cranks up the pressure ahead of their home showdown with 2022’s form team.

Not that the Black and Yellows have been too shabby themselves. Since the turn of the year, only Saturday’s opponents boast more points or goals scored than the 22 and 26 of Marco Rose’s charges. The recent stalemate in Cologne, as disappointing as it was, extending their unbeaten league run to six (W4 D2). While nobody has more Bundesliga home wins than the 11 of BVB (L2), winning their last two here to nil.

Key Stat: Dortmund would concede just two times across their current six-game unbeaten league run. However, each of those last four contests saw BVB net only once, last going more games without scoring more than one goal in 2016.


Dortmund To Score Exactly One Goal



RB Leipzig – Die Rotten Bullen in the ascendancy under Tesdesco?

Considering where the team were in the Bundesliga before his arrival, for RB Leipzig to find themselves with a top four finish firmly in their grasp is testament to the outstanding work undertaken by new head coach Domenico Tedesco. The 36-year-old has been a revelation thus far, overseeing the best points return (23 from 10 games) and best goal difference (+19) in Germany to start the second half of the season.

The Saxons currently occupy that coveted fourth position. However a host of sides are breathing down their necks. So they can ill afford any slip up in Dortmund this weekend, where a repeat of their 2-1 win when the sides clashed on Matchday 11 would certainly be handy. Die Rotten Bullen undoubtedly boast the form to do so, having gone the last nine competitive matches without defeat – six of that in the league (W4 D2).

Key Stat: RB Leipzig are on a seven game scoring streak away from home in the Bundesliga, netting exactly six in two of their previous three away outings – 6-1 vs Hertha Berlin and 6-1 vs Greuther Furth.

Borussia Dortmund Vs RB Leipzig Betting Advice

Dortmund have invariably enjoyed this fixture, amassing 13 goals across five home Bundesliga meetings with RB Leipzig. Last season’s 3-2 victory at Signal Iduna Park a fourth home league meeting in succession in which the hosts had managed multiple goals. And with the best home record in Germany this term (W11 L2), it would be no surprise were Marco Rose’s men to mark a swift return to winning ways.


Borussia Dortmund Vs RB Leipzig – Key Facts:

  • Only Borussia Dortmund (with 23 points and 27 goals) have accrued more points or scored more often in the Bundesliga in 2022 than RB Leipzig (22 and 26).
  • Both sides are in outstanding fettle defensively, however. The pair are both unbeaten in six Bundesliga matches, Dortmund having conceded twice in this spell – leading to all of their last four contests going Under 2.5 Goals – to the four of RB Leipzig.
  • Goals do usually flow between the sides here at Signal Iduna Park though. The last four such meetings seeing Over 4.5 Goals and Both Teams Score.


Each of the past four head-to-heads in Dortmund produced a minimum of five goals between the sides. However, it is worth noting just how strong both have been defensively in 2022. Dortmund conceded twice across their last six outings – and scored no more than one in each of the last four – while RB Leipzig’s backline was breached no more than once in each of their last six, and only four times in total.

So I’m happy to punt on their latest renewal being an altogether quieter affair.
