RB Leipzig – Borussia D., Bundesliga Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR RB LEIPZIG - BORUSSIA DORTMUND
Leipzig bravely chase a new season in the UCL and are now in the top 4. The team plays well and one of the reasons is the great results they have in home games. Bulls are almost unstoppable at home with just four lost points – their two draws with Fortuna and Schalke. This means they have no home loss yet and are therefore a slight favorite against Dortmund. Leipzig also played 2 friendly home games so it is their 4th consecutive Red Bull Arena match.
Dortmund showed they are not mentally unstable and after their first season loss, which came against a very unexpected opponent in Fortuna’s face, the black and yellows won a heavy match with Gladbach at Signal Iduna Park. Their lead before this round over Bayern was only 6 points, so they have no right to make many mistakes by the end of the season. Dortmund has not scored a goal in just one game in the league so far.
Leipzig have only 2 games against Dortmund on Red Bull Arena in history by winning the first in 2016, then making a draw 1-1. This match is very even and it is no coincidence that bookmakers have given such odds. Leipzig are a light favorite, because they are hosts and not only that. Here we will give BTTS at 1.56, because Dortmund has a crisis with injured central defenders and that is why they have no clean sheet 5 consecutive games. For the final outcome of the game we expect a Draw at 3.55
