Bayern Munich already claimed the champion spot of this Bundesliga season. Still, we have some games pending and this Leipzig vs. Dortmund promises to be a great one.
Dortmund tried to catch up with Bayern to fight for the title, but they failed in the most important game and lost against them. Now, with 3 games left, it is impossible to reach them. Still, Leipzig can take the second place if Dortmund slip in these last duels. Borussia Dortmund is placed 2nd with 66 points divided into 20 victories, 6 draws, and 5 losses. They are certainly an awesome team offensively and defensively and will fight for a victory here to secure this second position by the end of the season.
On the other hand, Leipzig has shown their big guns this season as well. They are placed 3rd, only 4 points below Dortmund, and will fight for a Champions League ticket which is not secured yet. So far, their total record this season is composed of 17 victories, 11 draws, and only 3 lost games. This is the team with the lowest amount of defeats on the league and they also have the second-best defensive line in the Bundesliga.
The duels between them are usually full of surprises and good goals. The last match played between Dortmund and Leipzig ended with a 3-3 draw and their current shape could say that this game will take the same path. I don’t think so and there are several reasons to believe that. First, the league is over as we have already a champion. Secondly, both teams are in comfortable positions and even when nothing is secured yet, they will probably reach the Champion League spots with no problem.
Additionally, playing behind doors will definitively affect a derby like this one, which is usually charged with thousands of fans. We have seen already at least 4 matches from them in the last 4 years that ended with one of two goals and the conditions for this duel are set to repeat the same pattern. For those reasons, I will place my bet for a match under 3 goals which offers good odds around 2.03. Register for the best betting software now and enjoy the best odds and limits in the market!
