Borussia Dortmund are hosting RB Leipzig at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund on the 8th of May 2021 Monday at 19:00 IST. Dortmund are back to winning ways after a major slump in form mid-season while Leipzig have started to look shaky off-late. An edgy game on the cards. 

Borussia Dortmund Form & Team News

Borussia Dortmund are the fifth-placed team in the Bundesliga this season with 55 points from 31 games played so far. They have won 17 games while drawing four and losing ten games too in the process. At home too, they have a decent record winning more than half of the games they have won in total. They have won their last four games and have shown glimpses of their old self which had been lost somewhere through the middle of the season. Borussia Dortmund if they can continue what they have done in the recent weeks can finish the season within the top four which will guarantee them a champions league qualification and a top finish after the sort of mid-season they had.

Bellingham is on a red card and is probably going to miss the next game. Haaland, Morey, Moukoko, Zagadou, Witsel and Schmelzer are the other players likely to miss out the next games owing to injury concerns. Terzic has done a decent job in putting up a team to start winning matches again and could well start favorites from now on regardless of their position in the points table. Haaland has been in serious form while the likes of Sancho, Hammels, Guerrero are all contributing to the team’s cause.

A win-loss pattern have followed them in the last few matches. Nonetheless, Leipzig have managed to keep the second position intact even during all of this and looks set to keep their place in the top four. They can’t win the title from here on anyway after the inconsistent run in the last few matches. 

Nkunko, Halstenberg, Kluivert, Klostermann, and Szoboszlai are the injured players in the Leipzip squad. Nagelsmann who even at this young age has shown the mettle required to succeed as a manager at the highest level and is all set to join bigger clubs and showcase his class. Sabitzer and Forsberg are the leading goal-scorers in the Bundesliga for the Leipzig squad. Olmo and Nkunko have assisted on most occasions. The above-mentioned players are the biggest contributors to the team’s success this season.
