RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Match Preview and Team News
RB Leipzig is second in the Bundesliga and hosts Borussia Dortmund, who are two places below them. The home side began 2021 with a 1-0 win at Stuttgart thanks to a second-half goal. That extended their unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions since a Champions League loss at PSG in late November. Leipzig is two points behind leaders Bayern Munich, but that will rise to five if they win at seventh-placed Borussia Monchengladbach. They haven’t conceded in their last five league and cup games, and overall this season has only let in nine league goals this season. That’s the best defensive record in the Bundesliga this season. Home form has seen Leipzig win their first six league matches before the recent goalless draw with FC Koln. Dani Olmo creates a lot of problems with his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in a one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles. Marcel Sabitzer is a real football pearl, and it is a pleasure to watch this guy, he is a real team leader.
Borussia Dortmund had only won one of their last five league games before beating Wolfsburg 2-0 at home on Sunday. That followed a German Cup win over Eintracht Braunschweig just before Christmas. That win on Sunday took them to fourth in the Bundesliga but eight points behind leaders Bayern Munich. They haven’t conceded in their last two league and cup games. That’s very welcome after conceding in their seven previous matches. Away form in the Bundesliga has produced four wins but also two losses. They have only won one of their last three away league games, a victory at 14th placed Werder Bremen. Axel Witsel commands midfield, and the Belgian international does not allow the opponent much action in the middle. There is also Julian Brandt, who puts in confident performances and plays without error. In the beginning, he had offers from some bigger clubs, but a move to Borussia Dortmund proved to be a perfect choice. Sancho creates a lot of trouble for opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, he has fantastic dribbles, and many teams are interested in signing the English international.
