RB Leipzig vs Dortmund: Our Top Three Betting Tips

We have our three best bets for the game between RB Leipzig and Dortmund for you now, accompanied by the latest and best odds available.

These odds from Betfred were correct at the time of writing. Check your betslip before confirming.

Dortmund to Score Over 1.5 Goals

We’re backing Dortmund to score at least 2-goals in the final as they have scored at least 2-goals in five of their last six games against RB Leipzig. Dortmund have also scored over 1.5 goals in each of their last five fixtures, which includes a 3-2 win over RB Leipzig.

Haaland to Score

Erling Haaland might not be one of the top scorers in this season’s DFB Pokal but the Norwegian striker has been in excellent for Dortmund during the 2020/21 campaign. Haaland has scored 25-goals in 26 appearances in the Bundesliga this season, not to mention, 10-goals in the Champions League, so you can see why we’re backing him to score at any time in the final.

2-1 Dortmund

Dortmund have won five of their last six encounters with RB Leipzig and just seem to have the psychological edge over their opponents even though they sit 6pts behind them in the Bundesliga table. Dortmund have only failed to score more than one goal against RB Leipzig in one of the duo’s last six meetings but have also only kept two clean sheets during that period.

Dortmund the slight favourites to lift the DFB Pokal

We’re going to take a look at the recent performances of both clubs and bring you any up-to-date team news we have available.

RB Leipzig

A 3-2 defeat to Dortmund last weekend was hardly the best preparation for the pair’s encounter in the DFB Pokal final on Thursday. Leipzig had secured two wins before that defeat but will be concerned as they haven’t beaten Dortmund since 2017, failing to win any of the duo’s last seven meetings in the Bundesliga. Angelino, Samardzic, Mkunku and Adams could all miss the final through injury but Szoboszlai is back in full training and could feature on Thursday.

Dortmund

Dortmund might be the favourites to lift the DFB Pokal on Thursday but they head into the final with injury concerns of their own. Moukoko and Zagadou have been ruled out for the remainder of the season, while Dahoud, Hitz, Witsel and Schmeizer are all rated as doubtful to be available. Haaland returned to training recently and is expected to be in the squad, which will be a huge confidence boost for the Dortmund faithful.
