Current form — RB Leipzig v. B. Dortmund

The Red Bulls keep target in sight

Results have been pretty much up to scratch in recent matches for RB Leipzig, who have performed more or less according to expectations. Jesse Marsch’s side look in good shape before their upcoming match, as they seek to remain unbeaten. They started taking out Babelsberg in a 1-0 win, before a 1-1 draw followed against Eintracht. Their most recent outing resulted in a 2-2 draw in a hard-fought encounter with PSG.

BVB on a decent run of form

B. Dortmund will be out to extend their fine run of results lately. Although losing their latest outing, results have generally been decent in the last 3 matches for Marco Rose’s side. They first took out Ingolstadt by 2-0 before downing FC Koln by 2-0. The winning streak came to an end against Ajax, who ran out 1-3 winners.

In a match between two sides performing almost identical in recent weeks, we still favor RB Leipzig to first make a breakthrough. The bookmakers currently settles the price for a home win at 1.95, whereas a win for the visitors pays out at 3.80. A draw will get you 3.95, should you prefer to go for the long shot.

Primary goal getter

Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Dominik Szoboszlai. He is one of the players from RB Leipzig who are in their best form. He managed to find the back of the net 3 times in his last 4 games, and will surely want to add some more goals against B. Dortmund.

With Erling Braut Haaland still out injured, the visitors will turn to the likes of Thorgan Hazard and Marco Reus to make a difference.
