Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 9 January 2021

After Bayern, these two are the best teams in the competition by a mile. The Red Bulls are placed second in the table, trailing just two points behind toppers and defending champions Bayern, while Der BVB are placed fourth in standings.
Going on, either team has been scoring in plenty all through the season, and with the Bavarians eager to extend their lead at the top, these two have no option but to keep the chase alive. Likely, we can expect a fierce encounter this Saturday.
Going on majority of h2h clashes over the years have also had goals in plenty.
By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend between these two high profile squads.

Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund Prediction
Julian Nagelsmann’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Stuttgart. In the meantime, Der BVB registered a 2-0 win at home the past game week, against Wolfsburg.
Going on, the Red Bulls won seven of their last nine overall matches, and they had scored two or more goals in six of the preceding nine fixtures. At home, they are on a ten-fixture unbeaten run, and of these, an impressive nine were wins.
Note that they had scored a total of 23 goals in the process, and they have lost just once here in the whole of 2020.
On the other hand, their opposite number have been the best team in Germany after the Bavarians, and they have failed to find the back of the net just once in their preceding thirty overall match-ups.
On the road, they had also won six of their former eight games, and only twice have they failed to score in such games in 2020. One of these fixtures had come against PSG, in the Champions League.
Moreover, majority of h2h meetings over the years have also had goals in huge numbers.
Taking into account these observations, expect a high-scoring affair this Saturday at the Red Bull Arena.
