Marco Rose’s Borussia Dortmund will look to return to winning ways when they take on a spirited RB Leipzig side in matchday 28 of the Bundesliga 2021-22 season on Saturday, April 2 at Signal Iduna Park. The match will kick off at 10:00 PM IST.
Dortmund are the closest competitor to Bayern Munich with 57 points in 27 Bundesliga games. Lack of consistency has hurt Rose’s men a lot, which is one of the reasons why they suffered a humiliating exit from the Europa League.
Leipzig, on the other hand, are unbeaten in each of their last nine games (W6, D3) across all competitions and will look to build on the ongoing momentum.
