The funniest match in the Bundesliga with a lot of tournament pressure. Preview of the match between Borussia and Leipzig

Date: March 21, 2023 Time: 17:37:33

Latest results and standings


While everyone admires Manchester United’s form, Borussia Dortmund is undeservedly deprived of the spotlight. The Germans, after the 2022 World Cup, maintain the super series of 9 winning games. And precisely victorious, and not only not lost.

And this is not to say that the “bumblebees” were just lucky with the schedule. They beat Bayer (2:1), Freiburg (5:1), Chelsea (1:0) and other very, very strong opponents. Thanks to long-term successful results, as well as Bayern’s mistakes, Dortmund caught up with the points leader, losing to Munich only on goal difference.

“RB Leipzig”

Leipzig was also in the lead for some time, but there was a slight decline, so the club fell back to fourth place. The bitterest defeat is against Unión (1:2), which sensationally continues to hold its own in the top three. But already in the next meetings, RB beat direct competitors: first, Wolfsburg was defeated – 3:0, and then Eintracht – 2:1.

The Bulls have put themselves in a difficult situation. If they lose in the next game and Freiburg scores three points, RB will be out of the Champions League zone.

estimated compositions


Most surprisingly, Dortmund continue their series without several key players. For example, they injured Karim Adeyemi and Yussouf Mukoko, without whom the variety in attack suffered greatly.

But this is almost imperceptible thanks to others, not even the most anticipated heroes. One of the highlights of Dortmund’s career comes from Julian Brandt, who has scored or assisted in the last five rounds of the Bundesliga.

Across the middle of the field, goalkeeper Gregor Kobel is definitely worth highlighting. He is in the top 5 in almost every important goalkeeping metric of all Bundesliga goalkeepers. Particularly impressive are the 76.8% save rate (4th) and 44.4% shutout rate (1st).

Estimated composition (4-4-1-1): Men – Ruerson, Süle, Schlotterbeck, Wolf – Byno-Gittens, Bellingham, Ozcan, Brandt – Reuss – Aller

“RB Leipzig”

RB has an even more difficult situation, namely the absence of Dani Olmo greatly spoils the impression of the game, so 4 + 6 points on “goal + pass” for the whole season. The most important thing is that the team lost its main creative player.

Other players save the RB, especially Christopher Nkunku, who occupies the third position in the scoring table (12 goals). Grifo has the same number, and only the main striker of the German national team Niklas Füllkrug has more goals scored (14).
