Take a brief look at the latest form and team news from Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig:
Borussia Dortmund Form and Team News
Three wins and two draws in their last five matches have seen Dortmund lose out on the chance to move closer to Bayern Munich on points. They remain 6 points behind the league leaders and have been excellent at home, winning 11 of their 13 home games this season.
Marco Rose’s men have managed 57 points from 27 outings this season, with 18 wins, three draws, and six losses, scoring 67 goals and conceding 38. Perhaps, without the fitness issues of their star forward Erling Haaland, they would have scored more goals, as the Norwegian remains their top scorer with 16 goals and five assists in only 17 appearances this season.
Borussia Dortmund have several players sidelined, with Marco Reus, Felix Paslack, Youssoufa Moukoko, Marcel Schmelzer, Nico Schulz, Mateu Morey Bauza, Thomas Meunier, and Steffen Tigges all injured.
RB Leipzig Form and Team News
RB Leipzig are undefeated in their last nine matches in all competitions, winning six and drawing 3, with 5 of those victories coming on the road. The Bundesliga outfit have won more points and have the best goal difference of any side in the league in 2022. In 27 matches, Domenico Tedesco’s team have managed 45 points and are locked in a battle for Champions League qualification.
In 13 wins, six draws, and eight losses, they have scored 57 goals and conceded 30, with 22 of the goals scored in away matches. Their away form has only improved recently, and they still have four wins, four draws, and five losses in 13 away fixtures this season. Their top scorer is Frenchman Christopher Nkunku, with 15 goals and nine assists.
For injuries and absences, RB Leipzig will be without Yussuf Poulsen for the trip to Dortmund, as he is sidelined with a muscle injury.
