Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig Betting Preview
BVB made a slow start to their 2022-23 Bundesliga season. Before the 2022 FIFA World Cup break in November, the Black and Yellows had already lost six league games and were well off the pace in the title race.
However, Dortmund have been a completely different team since returning from the winter break. They have won seven Bundesliga games in a row, seeing off the likes of Bayer Leverkusen, Werder Bremen and Hertha Berlin, which has fired them to the summit.
In fact, Borussia have won every single league and cup game since the break, securing victories in the league, UEFA Champions League and German Cup. They are on their way to the last eight of the Champions League after beating Chelsea in the first leg of their Round of 16 tie, and Dortmund are through to the quarter-finals of DFB-Pokal, where Leipzig wait in the final eight.
Dortmund’s Title Aspirations and Tight Race at the Top of the Bundesliga Standings
Dortmund have all the momentum in the world, and a win on Friday would enhance their title hopes. They head into the weekend level on points at the top of the Bundesliga standings with rivals Bayern, who have a far better goal difference.
Edin Terzic is certainly getting things right at Signal Iduna Park right now, and the Black and Yellows could be the team to watch out for in the battle for the championship. Read on for our Borussia Dortmund picks and the latest Bundesliga odds.
RB Leipzig are also in with a shout of winning this season’s Bundesliga. Things are very tight at the top, as only five points separates the leaders from Freiburg in fifth. Leipzig are in fourth, four points off the summit.
Leipzig have suffered just four league defeats this season, with only Bayern losing fewer. They have won 12 and drawn six of the other 18. The Red Bulls have also scored and conceded the exact same number of goals as Dortmund have.
Like Borussia, Leipzig also made a sluggish start to their league campaign, losing three times before October. However, their league form over the past few months has been exceptional, as only Union Berlin have managed to beat them in the Bundesliga in 2023.
RB Leipzig’s Strong Recent Form
Before the loss to Berlin, the Red Bulls were undefeated in the league in 12, picking up eight wins and four draws. They have responded with back-to-back victories, beating Wolfsburg 3-0 away from home and battling hard to claim a 2-1 home success over Eintracht Frankfurt last time out.
Leipzig’s away form has also been excellent lately. They have won six and drawn three of their last nine away fixtures in all competitions. Can they keep up that fine run with a massive three points on their travels this weekend? Below you will find the best Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig odds and Bundesliga predictions.
Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig Betting Picks
On paper, there is not a lot to split these two sides right now. Both are the in-form teams of German soccer, and this mouth-watering Bundesliga matchup could go either way.
When the two teams clashed at the Red Bull Arena back in September, Leipzig ran out easy 3-0 winners in front of their home fans thanks to goals from Willi Orban, Dominik Szoboszlai and Amadou Haidara.
However, Dortmund are a different team these days, and we are backing Terzic’s side to get revenge at Signal Iduna Park.
It could be close on the scoreline, so our money is going on the Dortmund win by one goal at +333. As for the correct score, there is excellent value in +1000 for the 2-1 home win.
