Will Borussia Dortmund get revenge?
The Bundesliga is into the closing stages, but there will still be a few more twists and turns before the end of the season. On Saturday, Borussia Dortmund welcomes RB Leipzig to Signal Iduna Park in a clash that will have huge ramifications for both sides.
It seemed scarcely possible a few weeks ago that Dortmund would still be in the throes of a title race, but they have stuck gamely onto Bayern Munich’s coattails, and Dortmund are just six points adrift of the table toppers.
Meanwhile, RB Leipzig have enjoyed another fine campaign, and that has been in part down to the exploits of Christopher Nkunku. Anyway, Leipzig are in the mix to qualify for the Champions League, but they can’t afford to drop any points.
This has all the ingredients to be a classic, and Freebets.com has picked out three intriguing tips for you to explore.
Borussia Dortmund to nick it
This is a fixture between two of the Bundesliga’s in-form teams. Dortmund have won three and drawn one of their past four encounters, while Leipzig have amassed 11 points from their past five league outings, so one thing you can probably expect is goals.
There’s plenty of firepower on both sides with the aforementioned Nkunku for Leipzig, while Dortmund hitman Erling Haaland needs little introduction.
Earlier this season, Leipzig claimed a 2-1 win, and this could be another tight encounter. However, the tables could be turned this time around, and Dortmund could pinch a win. If you like the Correct Score market, Paddy Power is serving up a price of 8/1 for Dortmund to win 2-1, which may take your fancy.
Marius Wolf to draw blood
While there is usually a natural levitation towards Haaland for him to get on the scoresheet against Dortmund, he looks like he could be a potential fitness doubt after picking up an ankle injury while on international duty with Norway.
He hasn’t scored in any of his past three Bundesliga appearances before then, which is a drought by his standards, however, the goals have been a bit more spread out.
The likes of Axel Witsel and Marco Reus know where the goal is, but Marius Wolf has been in a rich vein of form, scoring twice in his past three Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund. And you can get 9/2 with Paddy Power for Wolf to score any time, which may be appealing.
Jude Bellingham to set things up nicely
If you happened to catch any of England’s 3-0 friendly win over the Ivory Coast earlier this week, then you would surely have noticed Jude Bellingham, who turned in a magnificent display.
He is a joy to watch when at full flight, and he gives Dortmund an added dynamism going forward. Bellingham has already weighed in with seven Bundesliga assists this season, and he is likely to have a hand to play against Leipzig.
If you are tempted, then Unibet is offering 4/1 for Bellingham to provide an assist during the 90 minutes.
