Borussia Dortmund vs RB Leipzig predictions and betting tips on March 3, 2023
On March 3, Signal Iduna Park (Dortmund) will host the match of the 23rd round of the German Bundesliga, in which Borussia (Dortmund) will compete with RB Leipzig. The battle will start at 20:30 CET.
The team is the vice-champion of the country, but Marco Rose, who has achieved the higher mentioned result, worked in the club for only one year. After parting with him, the project management decided to choose “their native” Terzić, who, after the resignation of Favre, had been an interim coach in the last but one season. Frankly speaking, the “old-new” mentor of “the Black and Yellows” can hardly be satisfied with the starting segment, until the end of the autumn. But it goes without saying that he did his best during the break. As a result, “the Bumblebees” began to defeat any rival in the winter. The 2-1 victory in the DFB Pokal in the match against Bochum and a 1-0 success in the 1/8 battle of the Champions League with Chelsea prove the higher mentioned fact. And, that is the most important, having given a 100% result in the Bundesliga, the club reached Bayern (and Union). There could be a misfire in the struggle against Hoffenheim; however, Brandt was able to score the only goal of the match.
The club repeated the previous season, but in accordance with a more “compressed” scenario. A former hero, Tedesco, was fired already in the early autumn, after a series of setbacks, which were “crowned” with the defeat made by Shakhtar. The management chose Rose that brought an excellent result. Still, the momentum was only enough until the end of January. Then, there was a 1-1 score in the battle with Manchester City (it can be called as a success, but not a great one – the team got only one point with the favourite at home arena); speaking about the Bundesliga, “the Bulls” limited themselves to a goalless away draw in the match against Koln and lost to Union Berlin at the inner arena. The team did add in the game only with Eintracht (Frankfurt). There, the interaction of Werner and Forsberg gave the desired result –two victorious goals were scored.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Borussia won the last head-to-head match in May of the last but one season. After that, RB Leipzig took the maximum three times in a row.
Bookmakers believe that Borussia will win in Dortmund. Nevertheless, RB Leipzig is also not bad, and this is a fundamental duel for Rose personally. Thus, we bet on “total: over 2.5” (odd: 1.71).
