Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)
Despite topping the charts for most parts of last season, Dortmund managed to bottle their title-winning chances in the end, relinquishing top-spot to Bayern Munich. This time around, Die Borussen are prepared to have a go at league success again.

Completely unconvincing so far, Dortmund have failed to assert their dominance in the division, and are languishing in fourth-place. Still yet to get into their groove, they will be hoping the return of start striker Haaland helps fire them to victory here.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Team News

You bet Leipzig will still be hungover from the successes of the previous campaign where they steamrolled through to the semifinals of the Champions League. As a newly-founded club, it was lauded as a huge success.

Also, the Red Bulls pulled their weight in the domestic league, finishing third on the standings, very much within reach of the summit. This season, Nagelsmann’s charges are looking to mount another serious title challenge.

Already on the right path to achieving this, Leipzig sit comfortably in second-place, with 31 points from 14 matches. Just two points off table-toppers Bayern Munich, a win against Dortmund will be vital as it could see Leipzig leapfrog the reigning champions on the log.

With that in mind, Leipzig will be bringing their A-game here, as they set their sights on picking up a positive result this weekend. Far from a walk in the park for the Red Bulls, they were made to bend over backwards to see off newly-promoted Stuttgart last time out.

After a drab first-half, a 65th-minute Olmo strike fired Leipzig in front with the Saxony-based club holding onto the lead to post all three points on the board. Against a much more formidable Dortmund side, Nagelsmann’s charges must be more reassuring to stand a good chance.

Bolstered by the return of free-scoring forward Erling Haaland, Dortmund walked all over Wolfsburg to secure a routine 2-0 win. Even though the Norwegian wonderkid couldn’t get in amongst the goals, he played a huge role in his side’s victory.

A player that thrives in big games of this nature, you’ll expect the former Salzburg striker to grab a goal or two here. Enduring a recent patchy form, Der BVB have won only two of their previous five games. However, victory in this contest could kickstart a Dortmund resurgence, who knows?

Injured or Suspended Players

RB Leipzig: Fabrice Hartmann, Konrad Laimer, Benjamin Henrichs, Dominik Szoboszlai, Christopher Nkunku, Ibrahima Konate and Justin Kluivert.
Borussia Dortmund: Marcel Schmelzer, Youssoufa Moukoko and Thorgan Hazard.

RB Leipzig vs Dortmund Predictions

Heading into this fixture, Leipzig are in much better form than their counterparts from Dortmund. They have managed to remain unbeaten in their previous nine games on the bounce. Also, they held high-flying Bayern to a 3-3 draw last November.

This comes to show the shear quality in Die Roten Bullen’s squad. Meanwhile, Dortmund have been shilly-shallying this term, with no form of consistency. But with Haaland back in the fold, you cannot rule them out. It appears this fixture is already scripted as a draw, and a double chance in favor of Leipzig is in order
