Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig: Match prediction, team news, predicted line-up, results, head-to-head, venue, date, time, where to watch

Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are set to be involved in a fiery encounter tomorrow at Signal Iduna Park, when Edin Terzic’s side prepares to host RB Leipzig in a top half-of-the-table clash. Both sides would be eager to showcase their mettle and worth in a clash which could decide the fate of the two sides in the coming months.

A clash of the titans

Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig always promises to be a feisty encounter among two of the strongest sides at the German football arena. Be it a side which hosted Robert Lewandowski-Marco Reus against Emil Forsberg-Gulacsi to Jude Bellingham-Jadon Sancho against Dani Olmo-Lois Openda, the clash between Leipzig and Dortmund has always been one for the history books, and have gifted us with several legendary nights which would always be etched in out hearts.

Dortmund would be looking to seek a swift ‘move-on’ from their midweek elimination from DFB-Pokal, as they welcome Die Rotten Bullen to Iduna Park after suffering a 0-2 away defeat in the hands of Stuttgart. To add salt to their wounds, Terzic was without the services of four star players, and the elimination from DFB-Pokal was an added insult to them. Lifting the spirits of all Dortmund players would be an uphill task for Terzic as he needs to manage his side through four games within space of few days- starting with Leipzig and followed by PSG at UEFA Champions League, which closely comes before tough games against Augsburg and FSV Mainz.

As for Die Rotten Bullen, the Marco Rose-led side would be coming to Westfalenstadion after losing the game to Dortmund in their last clash at Bundesliga, as it ended 2-1 in favor of the home side. Following consecutive defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Wolfsburg, Leipzig returned to winning ways when they won against Heidenheim 2-1. Openda has been the star of the team, as he scored 10th goal of the domestic season when he scored against Heidenheim at home, with Poulsen adding the double. They are currently stationed on the fourth spot in the Bundesliga table, and have managed to win eight of the first 13 Bundesliga games, a feat which they have achieved since their debut season during 2016-17.

Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig: team news

With an high-intensity clash on the cards, both sides would be tempted to make their strong eleven take the field, but injuries and suspensions might force them to make some necessary changes. For home side, Wolf, Sabitzer, Moukoko and Ryerson would be on the sidelines, as they picked up injuries at midweek clash against Stuttgart. To add to Terzic’s woes, star striker Haller, Nmecha and Duranville would also be in the treatment room. Sule and Reyna were absent against Stuttgart, but could make their way back in the squad ahead of Saturday’s clash against Leipzig.

While for Marco Rose’s brigade, star attacker Dani Olmo would be out of contention to start the game as he is sidelined owing to his shoulder injury, while Orban and Bitshiabu have begun to start training lightly, but Saturday’s away game at Dortmund would be too early for the pair. Timo Werner has missed last three games owing to a groin injury, prompting his pre-game assessment, as Henrichs recovered from illness to make a comeback against Heidenheim.
