RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund return to Bundesliga action when they square off at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday evening (17:30 UK time).
Both enjoyed contrasting fortunes in the Champions League earlier this week but Dortmund’s current domestic form is encouraging, they’re currently on a four-game winning streak, while the hosts seek a return to successful ways following a 1-1 draw at Eintracht Frankfurt last time out.

RB Leipzig vs Borussia Dortmund build-up & previous line-ups:
After losing three of their opening matches under Jesse Marsch last season’s Bundesliga runners-up RB Leipzig have since gone on to put together a six-game unbeaten run (three wins and three draws) with only SC Freiburg currently on a longer run (10). It consequently leaves them in eighth place and two points below the Champions League places. By picking up 15 points Leipzig have accumulated their fewest points total after 10 games in a top-flight campaign. Also from an historical perspective, they’ve lost six of their 10 top-flight encounters with Borussia Dortmund, against no other team have Leipzig suffered more defeats against. Last season BVB netted six goals past them but five of those goals came from players unavailable to Marco Rose: Jadon Sancho (3), who has since joined Manchester United and Erling Haaland (2), who is missing due to injury.
A gut-wrenching loss to Ajax in the Champions League will need to be immediately forgotten as Borussia Dortmund seek to keep pressure on early Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich. Marco Rose’s men after their opening 10 league outings find themselves sitting in second and one point behind the Bavarian giants. By accumulating 24 points across their opening 10 fixtures BVB have fallen one shy of matching their best points total after this number of ames in a Bundesliga campaign (25 – 2010-11 and 2013-14). So far this season Dortmund have lost twice in Germany’s top division with both of those matches coming on the road (2-1 at Freiburg and 1-0 at Borussia Mönchengladbach). That being said, no Bundesliga club is currently on a longer winning run, Dortmund visit RB Leipzig — who they are unbeaten against in seven Bundesliga games (five wisn and two draws) — having won their last four league matches on the bounce.
- RB Leipzig (vs Paris Saint-Germain): Gulácsi; Orban, Gvardiol, Simakan; Mukiele, Adams, Laimer, Angeliño; Nkunku, Forsberg; Silva.
- Borussia Dortmund (vs Ajax): Kobel; Meunier, Akanji, Hummels, Wolf; Witsel, Bellingham, Brandt; Hazard, Tigges, Reus.

Player to watch: Yussuf Poulsen (RB Leipzig)
RB Leipzig’s longest-serving player Yussuf Poulsen missed their opening league game at Mainz due to injury. He would subsequently return to make four consecutive appearances off the bench. On his first league start of the season Poulsen netted in a 6-0 win over Hertha Berlin before going on to strike twice and create a further goal in his next four top-flight outings. By scoring in back-to-back Bundesliga games (against Greuther Fürth and Eintracht Frankfurt) he could score in three consecutive German top division matches within a season for the very first time. However, in eight previous league meetings with Borussia Dortmund he’s only managed to score one, that effort came on matchday eight of the 2017/18 season.
