After Bayern Munich wrapped up their eighth-straight Bundesliga title in midweek, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund do battle for second in this penultimate league match of the German season.
Both sides suffered disappointing results in midweek, in-form Dortmund putting in a limp and lifeless display as they were defeated 2-0 by relegation battlers Mainz whilst RB Leipzig looked to be cruising to a comfortable victory over Fortuna Dusseldorf before somehow conspiring to concede two goals in the final 10 minutes in a 2-2 draw.
Still, Dortmund have sealed their place in next season’s Champions League while a win here would do the same for Leipzig. The hosts are strong favourites at 5/4 while Dortmund are as long as 19/10 after their midweek toils.
There are any number of prolific goalscorers on the pitch to back here, with Chelsea-bound striker Timo Werner looking for his 27th Bundesliga goal of the campaign in what could be his final appearance at the Red Bull Arena.
He scored a brace in a memorable 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture in Dortmund last December. He’s 3/1 to open the scoring here and 8/11 to score anytime, and 12/1 to bag a hat-trick.
But he’s not the favourite to open the scoring, with Dortmund’s prolific January recruit Erling Braut Haaland 4/6 to score anytime and 11/4 to notch first. The Norwegian international has 11 goals from his first 13 appearances for the club, while the club’s top scorer Jadon Sancho (17 goals) is 13/10 to score anytime.
We recommend backing the hosts to win here. They’ll be motivated to leapfrog Dortmund into a runners-up spot, while the visitors haven’t looked at their brilliant best over the past week.
