Borussia Dortmund vs RasenBallsport Leipzig Match Prediction

By William Hall

1st take on 4th in the Bundesliga this weekend as Borussia Dortmund take on RB Leipzig at the Signal Iduna Park. Borussia Dortmund have had an outstanding start to the season, winning six and drawing one of their opening seven games of the season. Their most recent win came away from home against a high-flying Augsburg side which would have filled them with confidence coming into this one. RB Leipzig were also able to win in their last game before the international break seeing of Cologne 2-1 on the road. With both sides coming into this one off the back of victories, this one could be the tie of the weekend. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Borussia Dortmund have looked a different class this season, and with the quality, they have both going forward, and at the back, I can't see them having any troubles this weekend. Starman Aubamenyang have started the season very well, scoring eight goals in just seven games for the club. Whoever he comes up against he is going to make it very difficult and with RB Leipzig conceding a lot more goals this season, I think they will struggle to keep Dortmund quite this weekend. When these two sides met last season, on both occasions there was just one goal in it with the home teams winning 1-0. With the form Dortmund are currently in, I can see them going on and winning the game by a couple this weekend. There is no doubt RB Leipzig will go to Dortmund and make it a tough game for the home team, but for me, they just won't have enough this weekend to be able to deal with the home side.

Borussia Dortmund Preview

Borussia Dortmund have looked almost unstoppable this season, winning six and drawing one of their opening seven matches. The sides only draw of the season came away to Freiburg which was a huge shock for all neutrals but for Freiburg that day, it was a solid defensive display. Since that result Dortmund haven't looked back winning four in a row, winning three of them by beating the -1 goals handicap result. As you may have guessed Gabon international Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been the main man for Borussia Dortmund this season scoring eight goals in just seven games for the side. His electric speed, power and agility makes it very hard for defenders around the league and around the world to be able to deal with him. If he is on his game this weekend, you wouldn't bet against him getting at least one this weekend.

Borussia Dortmund Team News

Borussia Dortmund have six players who could be back this weekend if they pass fitness tests. They are Andre Schurlle (thigh injury), Raphael Guerrero (foot injury), Mahmoud Dahoud (toothache), Nuri Sahin (back injury) Roman Burki (tooth injury) and Sebastian Rode (groin injury). There will also be four players defiantly out for Dortmund with Eric Durm (hip injury), Lukasz Piszczek (knee injury), Marcel Schmelzer (ankle injury) and Marco Reus (ACL) all sidelined.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Preview

After RB Leipzig impressive first season in the Bundesliga, the expectations are very high for them this campaign. They started in the worst possible fashion getting beat 2-0 to Schalke. However, since then they have been able to get valuable points on the board which has seen them jump to 4th in the Bundesliga, just one point behind last seasons champions Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim. Away from home Leipzig have been very hit and miss this season with two wins and two defeats to their names. They will be hoping to get another one on the board this weekend, but against a strong looking Dortmund side, they could find it tough. 21-year-old Timo Werner has started the season as he finished last, scoring five goals in just six games already this season. He will prove once again a big part in Leipzig season.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Team News

RB Leipzig have six doubts this weekend with Diego Demme (shin injury), Fabio Coltorti (muscle injury), Marcel Sabitzer (tooth injury), Naby Keita (foot injury), Stefan Ilsanker (broken toe) and Timo Werner (jaw injury) all 50/50 to play.
