RB Leipzig Preview – Are Leipzig set for a win in their final home game and draw level on points with Dortmund?

While there would have been hopes at halfway that Leipzig could maintain their title challenge, it’s still been a promising season for the club as they aim to finish second. Bayern have been simply too good since the turn of the year and Julian Nagelsmann will be aware of that. His team have not lost a game since the start of February but they have drawn six of their last nine matches which will be the frustrating thing.

The consistency that Bayern have shown is the level that Nagelsmann knows his team have to get to in order to topple the Bavarians.

Our betting prediction:
Dortmund win and BTTS

The next couple of months are bound to be an interesting period as Timo Werner will move to Chelsea and could be one of a number of impressive performers to leave Leipzig. The club have a reputation for unearthing talent from all over the world so they will have replacements ready to go but any big turnover of players is going to have an effect.

Before then, the mission is second place and – when it resumes – further progress in the Champions League.

Borussia Dortmund Preview – Can Dortmund bounce back from disappointing midweek defeat and clinch second spot?

It’s fair to say there was something of a hangover for Dortmund when going down 2-0 to Mainz at home on Wednesday. The day previous seen Bayern clinic their eighth successive title and it appeared to have an impact on Lucien Favre’s team. It was flat and unenthused. With a three point lead over their rivals the battle for second is still very much on. And Dortmund will have to see it out.

The 10 point gap between themselves and Bayern will hurt all concerned as it’s proven once again they are still some way off their bitter rivals – despite significant investment last summer.

Dortmund will also be looking ahead and determining what their squad will look like for next season. So many of their talents are linked with big moves away as is so often the case.

Favre’s team come into Saturday’s game on the back of winning their last five away games in the league. Therefore, they’re attempting to make it six away Bundesliga victories for the first time since 2010. Any result other than a defeat would virtually ensure second place for the visitors.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Advice

Due to the nature of this fixture and the different traditions of both clubs, it has been a developing rivalry for the last few years. The absence of supporters clearly removes some of that but it’s still one to look forward to.

The 3-3 draw in Dortmund back in December was not only one of the games of the German season but anywhere in Europe. A repeat of that would be welcome and both teams are extremely capable of producing goals.

Key Facts – RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Betting Tip

    • Leipzig are unbeaten in the league since February but have drawn six of their last nine matches
    • Dortmund are looking to win their sixth straight away game in the Bundesliga for the first time in 10 years
    • The teams played out one of the games of the season when they met in Dortmund, drawing 3-3

Only Robert Lewandowski has more league goals than Werner this season whilst the meteoric rise of Erling Haland means this is a clash of two of Europe’s most potent weapons. You sense one, if not both, will have something to say in this one.

Leipzig have lost just one match at home all season but at the same time won only seven. Dortmund won here on their last visit and will be looking to bounce back from Wednesday’s defeat.

Dortmund were very poor on Wednesday but they have been reliable on their travels and look a touch of value to get back to winning ways here, clinching second spot in the process.
