RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction and Betting Preview, 20 Jun 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-2
It is expected to be a red-letter day in the city of Saxony when RB Leipzig welcome Borussia Dortmund to the Red Bull Arena for a crunch Bundesliga clash, both sides tussling for bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points.
Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 33
Kick-off:
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)
Once again, RB Leipzig have played out an outstanding campaign, proving to doubters that they are no one-season wonder. Led by the clinical Timo Werner, the Red Bulls have risen to third on the log, just three points behind this weekend’s opposition Borussia Dortmund.

Thursday morning, we were greeted to the news of the impending departure of Werner to Chelsea, once the season’s curtains draw close. With the German striker exiting his favored club very soon, he will be looking to leave on a high.

Helping his side to a win over arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund will be a very good way to sign-off from the Red Bull Arena. A win here will see Nagelsmann’s charges leapfrog Der BVB into second place on the log. With a lot at stake in this fixture, expect an exciting game of football between these two top sides.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Team News

Since the turn of the year, RB Leipzig have struggled with inconsistency, failing to deliver impressive results on a regular basis. They had been on top of the standings for a while but lost grounds in the title race following a rough patch of results.

Hoping to close in on this weekend’s opposition Dortmund on the standings, RB Leipzig played host to relegation-threated Fortuna Dusseldorf with every intention of hammering the Fortunen to post the much-needed three points on the board.

Headed into the game in high-spirits, the Red Bulls were brought down to bare bones by their resilient opposition. They had looked set for a comfortable victory after Kampl and Werner fired them ahead. However, a late resurgence from Dusseldorf saw them register two goals to salvage a 2-2 draw.

Following the league restart, Dortmund comfortably steamrolled their way through every opponent they faced, barring a defeat to runaway league leaders Bayern Munich. However, they have slowed down in recent games with consecutive 1-0 victories over both Hertha Berlin and Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Last time out, they were touted as favorites to overcome Mainz and quite rightly so. However, Dortmund looked out-of-sorts in the game and were completely outclassed by the 05ers. Mainz fired two unanswered goals past Buerki in goal to condemn Die Borussen to a surprise defeat.

For this fixture, nothing much can be said when it comes to predicting which side secures the win. However, one thing is for sure – this game will go right down to the wire. RB Leipzig have remained unbeaten since the league restart – playing out four draws over seven games in that time.

Also, the Red Bulls are sporting the fourth best home record in the league having amassed 29 points from seven wins, eight draws and a defeat. Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund had been on a three-game winning streak before that run was thwarted few days ago by Mainz. Der BVB are the fourth best away side in the league.

Injured or Suspended Players

RB Leipzig: Yussuf Poulsen, Hannes Wolf and Fabrice Hartmann.

Borussia Dortmund: Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marco Reus, Mahmoud Dahoud, Thomas Delaney, Manuel Akanji, Giovanni Reyna, Mario Gotze and Achraf Hakimi.

RB Leipzig vs Dortmund Predictions

When it comes to h2h encounters between these sides, Borussia Dortmund get the nod. They have secured three wins from their previous seven meetings against RB Leipzig. As such, they will be heading into this fixture with the bragging rights.

However, RB Leipzig are no pushovers. They have not lost a single game since the league restart but are yet to come up against any strong side. Dortmund, on the other hand, narrowly lost to Bayern Munich. Both sides are equally matched but we will be going for an away win with Der BVB grabbing the victory in a high scoring affair at the Red Bull Arena.
