RB Leipzig were the better side in the 2-2 draw at Hoffenheim in the opening day of the 2016/17 league season. At the same time, the nerves of the big occasion and inexperience at this level was pretty evident as they conceded lead twice in the match.

While Borussia Dortmund were given a hard time by Mainz in the opening day. But a double from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was enough to start their season campaign with a win, with Yoshinori Muto scoring the consolation goal for Mainz in the injury time.

The Saturday’s Bundesliga clash at the Redbull Arena will be the first ever competitive meeting with RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction

Leipzig’s immediate target this season will be to stay as far as possible from the relegation zone. Despite sharing the points at Hoffenheim, Leipzig were very sloppy in defense. And they will be duly punished if the same happens against a team like Dortmund.

It is hard to see Dortmund drop points here and the odds of 1.61 for an away win is a good offer. Also looking at the scoring form and Leipzig’s defensive vulnerabilities, Dortmund are expected to find the back of the net at least twice here. I also believe that they could get an early goal here.

Aubameyang scored twice in the 2-1 win against Mainz and he is a likely candidate to open the scoring here. On the safe side, it is good bet on his to score anytime during the match.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund: Betting Tips

Dortmund to win at 8/13 (1.61)
Aubameyang to score anytime at 8/11 (1.72)
Dortmund – over 1.5 goals at 8/15 (1.53).
