Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig
Date: Thursday, 31 March 2022
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Signal Iduna Park.
Der BVB are about to go on a final attempt to secure the league title. They are placed second in the table at the moment, trailing seven points below arch-rivals, Bayern Munich. However, just seven games remain till the end of the campaign, and this puts some pressure on the challengers.
They do not have anything to lose though. A top-two finish is pretty much guaranteed for them, considering their nine-point lead over the third-placed squad.
As such, it goes without saying that Dortmund will try their absolute best for a win this Thursday, especially in front of their own crowd.
However, the fourth-placed Leipzig will have a thing or two to say about that. They are level on points with the fifth-placed Freiburg, and a top-four finish is mandatory for a ticket to the Champions League.
As such, the Red Bulls are under pressure to win this game. And this is also an opportunity for them, as the fifth-placed Freiburg are locking horns with none other than Bayern Munich.
By the looks of things, anticipate a fierce encounter this Thursday at the Signal Iduna Park, and possibly expect goals from either side of the pitch.
