RB Leipzig vs Dortmund Prediction:
- RB Leipzig have suffered back-to-back defeats in the Bundesliga after managing Europa League matches against Napoli. Now they have had a full week to rest and prepare, they should come back stronger against Borussia Dortmund.
- Dortmund are unbeaten in nine Bundesliga matches and have improved at the back since manager Peter Stöger took over. They still struggle in possession, though, and fail to make use of their immense attacking potential on a consistent basis.
