Borussia Dortmund travel to RB Leipzig on Saturday evening as they attempt to keep pace with Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga.

BVB manager Marco Rose joined the club this summer having managed Leipzig’s sister side RB Salzburg in Austria earlier in his career, and has led the Black and Yellows to second-place after ten fixtures so far this season.

They are on a run of four consecutive wins in the German top flight but did lose at home to Ajax in midweek, putting their chances of qualifying for the Champions League knockout stages at risk.

Leipzig, meanwhile, are enduring a middling start to the season under new boss Jesse Marsch following Julian Nagelsmann’s departure to Bayern, winning fewer than half of their matches in the league so far.
