THE TEAM NEWS

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig were unable to fix their issues at home as they drew yet again in what was another disappointing display and result as they were held to a point by struggling Fortuna Dusseldorf in midweek.
  • That is now four successive home draws for Leipzig who will almost certainly need to win this clash if they are to leapfrog their opponents into second with goals from Kevin Kampl and Timo Werner not enough to claim the win as they allowed Dusseldorf to score twice in the closing minutes.
  • Those goals both came after the 86th minute of the match in what was an awful capitulation by Leipzig and to make matters worse for them, they will be without Konrad Laimer for this game after he was struck down by illness.

BORUSSIA DORTMUND

  • Borussia Dortmund suffered a shock loss at home to Mainz during the week and that defeat means that second spot is far from secure ahead of what should be a tricky trip to the team they are directly competing with for that position in RB Leipzig.
  • Despite seeing plenty of the ball and creating lots of chances, they were wasteful in front of goal and were made to pay as Mainz struck twice to take advantage of Dortmund’s injury problems.
  • Dortmund have suffered another blow ahead of this important game with right-back Achraf Hakimi having to sit out through suspension after collecting his fifth booking of the campaign against Mainz.

THE PREDICTION

This contest could turn into a shootout for second spot in Bundesliga with RB Leipzig trailing Borussia Dortmund by just three points ahead of this contest between the two teams. They are also level on goal difference so a win for the hosts would see them leapfrog their visitors but they will have to overcome their poor home form if they are to do that. They have drawn their last four home games in the league but all of those have been score draws and it is likely that both teams will find the back of the net here.
